1. agree. I visited the MET a few years ago and there are a lot of interesting things to see and do but there is no way I’d go there now.


  2. We own a house at the outer edge of commuting distance into NYC. We are in far northwest NJ and a there is a bus service down the street that goes directly to mid-town in 1 to 2 hours depending on how early you rise. Right now my wife and I are trying judge to peak of this crazy market and might sell this summer. New Yorkers are paying insane prices to escape. Some houses nearby have sold within a day of hitting the market at above asking price.
    We would then proceed to rent in the somewhat freer state of PA for a year while considering our long-term plans. I still have to show up at work in NJ sometimes.

  3. Lived there the first 35 years of my life, and worked there until two years ago. Even on a good day it smells like ass and garbage. No plans to return unless I absolutely have to.

  4. Guess what happens with cheap flights?

    It makes it possible for the…uh…great unwashed to take flights.

    I’ve had to fly a few times since the coof hit, and it was special. Lots o’ diverse amateurs not exactly schooled in the finer points of etiquette while flying. Like what to do when the flight is cancelled and they empty the plane and reroute everyone. That was special, and something to see. Luckily it wasn’t my flight.

    But we’ve seen more than one chimp-out at the gate posted on youtube gone viral.

    I’ve been flying for work for 30 years and never have seen stuff like this. Good times.

  5. Y’all can browbeat me about the culture and whatever else, but I have no need to EVER go to that place.

  6. What you need to worry about are the folk coming from NY, not intending to return. I don’t think Texas lobotomizes them at the airport.
