    As well you shouldn't.

    Stache,

    I'm not apologizing. I feel in the context of the thread (discussing the bad old days, and her expressed affinity for them) the comment was completely...

    Most of the big clubs used to be in the postindustrial wastelands of the city. Now people live in these places. They don't want the crowds, noise, and disruption the clubs bring. BTW, the smoking...

    I don't blame the unions for this one. 7 WTC got done, then Goldman started and will get done, before the FT gets done, and all are union (I assume).

    Actually, I think that NYC will do much better than the country at large. Why? We're much less oil dependent. People will want to come here to avoid having to drive, or, more broadly, avoid having...

    Sorry, this is wrong. The artistic types will stay here. Why? Because this is where their customers are. That's really why they were here in the first place. Who 'consumes' art (in all forms,...

    I think there are lots of people in NYC who are pining for the bad old days (and few of them post here).

    With Heller now in place, it think that would get shot down also. Face it, we're not in an era where guns (and ammo) will be more universally available to law abiding citizens (they've always been...

    The question now is how will this effect NYS and NYC gun laws. It looks like the first to be challenged after DC will be Chicago and San Francisco. But I think NY is ripe for a challenge also, if...

    Scalia is 71. Last I looked, Stevens is 85 (and he may have gotten older since then). Even if Obama is elected, and reelected, Scalia could probably wait him out.

    If it were Paterson, NJ, they'd just slap a toll on Rt. 80 (which would probably be very lucrative)

    I've been digging for a link, but can't find one. Apparently Patterson is refloating congestion pricing as a way of plugging the MTA budget problems.

    That's right, let's take the days when there isn't too much congestion, and make it just like the weekdays.

    The streets that aren't included will suffer for the streets that are.

    I'm sure that's completely budgetted in.

    Isn't this something that should be in a, um, convention center, of some sort? I've always thought it seemed a bit wacky to do this in a public park

    That won't work in AC, because no one cares. I haven't seen anything down there worth landmarking. At least they originally built stuff in Miami that became worth saving.
