Agreed!

we were in KW for fantasy fest and i was paying no attention to the storm whatsoever until it was within 12 hours of leaving. we ended up stranded down there, with 19,500 flights canceled to the NE. Our choice was to wait and fly friday, or drive 1500 miles in a one way rental. Drive we did. Anytime we felt ourselves complaining we qucikly turned to consider what the real victims were facing, and little did we know until we arrived home and saw the utter devastation on tv.

We had not so much as a leaf out of place and we truly feel for all of you who suffered at any level.

In times like these--both the BEST and WORST of some emerge... Neighbors are providing for neighbors, volunteers are doing whatever they can to help, and then some are so self absorbed they complain about inconveniences! Can you imagine the cold, hearlessness of those who complain about the lines we have to wait in for fuel, while there are thousandswho have not only lost all they have, but families are mourning the loss of life and bodies are being recovered a few miles from their safe location?

It puts little inconveniences in perspective... We should all be thankful for all that we have...and the safety of our families and friends. V

NYC, has so much underground, folks have to realize salt water and electronics don't mix. NYC is always in a precarious position. its NYC! lol But it will survive. Truth is, Mother Nature dictates her own path and not much we can do about it. I do think that, down here, many of the homes lost on the Ocean not going to be allowed to be rebuilt. It will be like in Katrina where they said the area too flood prone to rebuild. Everyone thinks I'm nuts, but we shall see.

Most the businesses we patronize, have promised to rebuild. Just a mess! But on the other hand, make me so proud to see how folks pull together in the worst of times.

M-- Correct you are.. Throughout the Northeast infrastructure is aging and in dire need of replacments. Whether it is the small rural communities of NW NJ, the suburbs that surround NYC or the small cities that lay in the shadow of Manhattan, natural gas and water delivery systems are aging and frequently break after the thaws that follow deep freezes.

In lower Manhattan, there are miles of century plus old wooden water pipes that are still in service. However, the gentrification throughout the five boroughs that began during the 80's continues to thrive. Throughout the city, once abandoned buildings are being rehabilitated..the unfortunate consequence is that as the neighborhoods thrive, the rents increase, thus forcing many to move to outer boroughs or to the suburbs.

Regardless of the metric, NYC is thriving with a quality of life much better than the early 70's when it was nearly financially bankrupt.

The reality is, that NYC's infrastructure is indeed rotting from the inside out. But what would an emotion driven non New Yorker know about NYC.

Despite the gentrification of NYC and its boroughs, NYC's infrastructure is seriously antiquated and is in desperate need of attention.

If Fun's friend was referring to NYC's infrastructure, she might have a point that this storm is gonna prove a real test.

If she thinks New York's spirit is rotten, she is nuts. I spend lots of time hanging out on the UWS and find it as vibrant a place as anywhere in the country. The stories are circulating all over the place about mid and up towners hosting downtowners for sleepovers, showers, electric charges, etc.

The friend said she 'thought'.......

So she had a thought, who cares.? if you do not like her thought, don't agree.

Perhaps telling 'that bitch to shut the fuck up' made you feel better.

BLT--- Ignore the ignorance of those who make generall statements and those who share those thoughts. Anyone who would make such an asinine statement that NYC has been in decline is an exemplar of not being informed! Prior to Sandy... be it the richest of neighborhoods or the poorest, regardless of which of the 5 boros one examines, the state of NYC continues to improve from every category.

20 years ago -- neighborhoods like Harlem, Alphabet City, Hells Kitchen, and NoHo or Bronx's Fordham or Staten Island's Stapleton to name just a few were filled with empty, decaying buildings, and are NOW thriving neighborhoods

For the first time in decades, supermarkets, Costco's and other bigger box stores are opening in areas that were once unsafe to visit during the day.

Ignore the ignorance that some spew on SLS forums...they are obviously not informed and have sources who are even less informed..pitiful characters.

NYC was and is the greatest city in the world... And-- although the focus of Sandy's aftermath has been on the Jersey Shore, our great nation cannot forget those who have been impacted across NJ and the boroughs of NYC that were also in the path of the storm surge.

Further to my previous post, I see that the foolish person is a female. Tell that bitch to shut the fuck up! My family is struggling on Long Island as she sits her fat ass in front of a computer talking shit.
