this is exactly what i have been looking for.

This place is an ISLAND and no one here seems to realize it. A friend of mine was listening to the radio and they had someone on who didn't know that long island was an island. This in itself is pretty sad, but then I told about ten other "New Yorkers" about it only to discover that they too did not know that long island is an island.

The best part about island life has to be the complete lack of contact with the rest of the world. I never have to worry about keeping up with the times, because this place is at least 15 years behind the west coast.

No one knows how to use a computer. I was a janitor at an office and knew more IT stuff than anyone else in the building, including the IT department. If you were guessing that a janitor probably doesn't know a lot about computers you are exactly right. These people were just that stupid.

If anyone tells you that New York is tough or gritty then they are either lying or can't figure out that it isn't 1985 anymore. New York is the safest large city in the country and ranks very highly amongst all cities with a population over 100,000 people. The only scary thing here is the dense concentration of Yuppies and hipster trust fund babies who will pay any price for a dumpy warehouse loft just so that they can send letters back home to their friends with a brooklyn address.

I am so sick of hearing how everyone on the west coast is fake and the people in new york are so "real". I have never lived in LA but i can't imagine it could be as bad as it is here. I have met more people than I can to count that have said I was cool or that we should hang out, but never called me again. Number of times that has happened to me on the west coast, or other parts of the east coast, one.

So don't believe the hype. New York is basically just a theme park for the rich. Where they can live out their "look i'm poor" fantasies. If you are thinking about moving here don't. Really. If you are wondering why I moved here, it was because my girlfriend, who I met in Washington tricked me. And now I finally getting the hell out of this dump truck.

If you don't like what i said then you must be from new york and that means you are an idiot.

back on may 8th 2001, i posted in my blog the following:

new york sucks ass

plane sat on ground at la guardia. it was a complete joke. had limo into the city. too tired to go out. to awake so sleep. tomorrow i get to go into the agency and then a photo shoot. ah the life. if it were only so glamorous.

over the past 14 months people typing "new york sucks ass" into their favorite search engine would come to my blog. many of the posters seem to be very adament about their opinions about new york and the empire state. far be it for me to silence theif voice. so instead i give you the "new york sucks ass" weblog. my hope is that this site will replace mine as the number one place on the internet to comment on new york.

please note that the opions expressed here are those of the posters. not me [unless i leave a post of course].
