I'm going to miss this shit

I'm going to miss this shit, originally uploaded by Theorris.

The last time I was in New York, it wasn't such a nice experience. It bothers me, of course, that only multi-millionaires could ever live here, but still. I'll take a Romantic notion over horrible, brutal, facts of life. NYC is fun and super safe these days. It is clean and the people are very, very, very friendly.

(Avoid the Disneyland that is Times Square, however.)

Ultimately, however, it is a fantasyland. Outside my hotel I noted some Japanese tourists getting into a van. A young woman was carrying a bag that was imprinted with "NYC Disney."


Luckily the city isn't 100% New York, New York (ala Vegas), but that seems to be how things are working.
