New York City will turn into shell of
former self after coronavirus crisis

Imagine New York City five years from now with streets full of abandoned storefronts, closed eateries, and empty buildings. The cumulative effects of the coronavirus may be more overwhelming than the other challenges New York City has had to face during the past two generations, including the aftermath of 9/ 11. It is likely that the pandemic will simply accelerate the trend in the sharp decline of its population and livelihoods. New York City was already losing population before the outbreak due to economic factors and quality of life issues. Around 40,000 residents left between 2017 and 2018 alone. The

Same goes for the State of New York: "New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has caused a firestorm in the Empire State for declaring to a talk radio host that conservatives who are pro-life, pro-gun and anti-gay marriage “have no place in the State of New York.” https://www.aei.org/politics-and-public-opinion/cuomo-says-conservatives-have-no-place-in-new-york/

Back in November/December of 99, I had to work in NYC for about 4 weeks. As a country boy at heart, being surrounded by concrete and hostile crowds drove me nuts. I can see the attraction to living in NYC. Anything you could want is in walking distance or a short subway ride away. Restaurants, shopping, museums and entertainment galore. But it all comes at a high price, literally and figuratively. Nothing is cheap there. Great, you can go to the theater if you can afford to drop a few Benjamins. Which means that your average worker, really isnt participating in the "night life" and culture. The people are on average rude and wont make eye contact. Your living in high-rise efficiencies whose monthly rent will buy you a 2000 sqft home, with yard in Georgia. One can earn a 6 figure income in NYC and live like a pauper. The traffic is atrocious. Parking non-existent. And because one cant afford a vehicle, you have to grocery shop near daily. You dont want to buy more than you can carry. NYC is both spectacular and horrifying.

Poster #4 makes a terrific point. I love visiting NYC for a few days - the entertainment, the food, the wonderful variety of people and things - all make for a stimulating adventure. On my last visit I saw Fiddler on the Roof performed in Yiddish at the Jewish National Theater. What a treasure! And there is a wealth of American history there. But to live in NYC, now that's another story. I have a sibling there and he will never leave. He thrives on the activity. Unfortunately there has been a long-standing pandemic of collectivist thought amongst the "leaders" and those who elect them. Ramona (the Pest)

Given the entrepreneurship of Americans, no doubt other potential business owners will flock to the empty storefronts and start new businesses.

Sadly, and I truly am sad about this...but I just don't care. They got exactly what they voted for and hopefully they, collectively, learned a lesson. However, I won't hold my breath waiting for them to react in a positive manner...

I like the Metropolitan Museum and Bryant Park at Christmas, and The Cucina Restaurant in Macy’s was a nice place to eat lunch. We used to go twice a year for my husband’s work. It was fun and we especially enjoyed getting together at Michael’s restaurant with a fun and entertaining friend. She’s a special person. Last time we were there we were lucky to see Donald Trump announce for president. A great end to our NYC trips before Muncsdad retired. MuncsMom.

Sadly, when those people relocate to cheaper states, they bring their liberal politics with them and foul their new nest. Just look at Colorado - a formerly conservative western state now with a gay governor, and all major state offices controlled by Democrats. All it took was 20 years of Californians moving into the state.

I lived in Brooklyn from birth till I was 35. I saw NYC in its grimy glory during the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. I remember strong and stable neighborhoods, I remember grafitti artists decorating the trains like Jackson Pollack. I remember being able to walk under the boardwalk at Coney Island-until the 80's, when Russian women jogging on the boardwalk were attacked and dragged under the walkway to be raped by blacks. Then the city brought in bulldozers to push the sand in until the space was wholly filled up so as to deny the space for crime. I even remember the huge smokestack with STEEPLECHASE stencilled on it, until it was demolished. I remember the parachute jump actually working, instead of just the structure used as a historical artifact. And I remember how generous NYers were, donating to thousands of charities. But the cancer of liberalism was even then working, rotting it from the inside out. So many years of Democrat Mayors and Govenors (David Dinkens, the worst Mayor until Bill DeBlasio took the crown) destroyed NYC and NY State. Look at how NY rebounded when Giuliani was Mayor and Pataki was Govenor after years of rot-the city went from record crime to being one of the safest big cities in the world-and look how quickly it withered under DeBlasio and Cuomo. NYC can be great again, but we'll have to see if it wants to be great again. Meaning, a conservative Republican in Gracie Mansion and the Governor's seat.

NYC was a hell hole in the 1940s when my parents took us kids there to visit a relative. It looked by Beirut after a bombing. We were warned not to leave sight of the front door. Here it is 2020 and nothing has changed. It's still a hell hole. There is no amount of money in this world that would con me into stepping one foot back in there.

My first response is, Isn't NYC a shell of a city anyway? What does it actually produce but hype and intangibles? For those living there I'd appreciate not being billed for your lifestyle. Out here we pull our own weight. We'd appreciate it if you did the same.

FTA: The pressure of the pandemic, high tax rates, soaring living costs, lack of security, She's speaking about NYC in this sentence but this is Chicago's situation too. If working remotely becomes a permanent option for your job, then why stay in the city? Working from home, in the suburbs or another state, is preferable to living in Chicago. The cost of living, out of control crime and the city, county and state governments have made Chicago unlivable.

Have some pity on the trapped right-wingers whom fortune, misfortune, family history (this was a beautiful city until the late sixties) have now trapped in depreciating homes. A lot of the firefighters who charged into the buildings on 9/11 lived in the five boroughs, esp. Staten Island and Queens. Their families still do. Right wingers in NYC can't do much against the tide. Their misfortune is living in a dictatorship.

SAN FRANCISCO — One of the nation’s most celebrated gay bars is being forced from its home amid the financial fallout of the coronavirus pandemic. The Stud is the longest continually running gay bar in San Francisco and known throughout the country as one of the bohemian, gender-bending, anything-goes institutions that made San Francisco into a gay mecca. The 18-member collective that operates the club announced late Wednesday that they had decided to close the bar, though they will look for a new location. “Because of a lack of revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the historic bar will be

Tokyo - Crushingly crowded public transport. The world's oldest population. A huge outbreak on a cruise ship. A state of emergency without penalties. It sounded like a recipe for a coronavirus catastrophe, and there were fears among public health experts that Japan could become the next Italy or New York. But it hasn't happened. The country hasn't exactly escaped unscathed. About 800 people have died and more than 16,000 have been infected in a country of 126 million. But in comparison, more than 90,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. And Germany, which is widely hailed for its coronavirus containment strategy, has

Conservative syndicated columnist Jonah Goldberg slammed Kayleigh McEnany for her role as White House press secretary, calling her “grotesque” on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday.” After playing a clip of McEnany sparring with reporters, host Chris Wallace said, “Unmasking is pretty routine. It’s an effort by people in an administration to find out who a masked person is. It happens in the Trump White House. It happened I think 16,000 times the year before last. What’s a crime is leaking it, but unmasking isn’t. In addition to which, I have to say that if Kayleigh McEnany had told Sam Donaldson and me what questions we should ask, that would not have gone well.”

Harvard Prof. Blames Christianity’s ‘Malignant’
Belief in Afterlife for Lockdown Protests

Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker said Thursday that the push for reopening society from lockdowns comes from Christianity’s “malignant delusion” of belief in an afterlife. Atheists who believe in this life alone are more concerned with health and safety, Professor Pinker suggested in a Tweet, while Christians tend to devalue “actual lives” and live a riskier existence. Belief in an afterlife is a malignant delusion, since it devalues actual lives and discourages action that would make them longer, safer, and happier.
