  1. a couple big caveats, one being if in fact there truly is a trend real estate searches are a very weak indicator. also, where ever someone from nyc (or it seems any city) might be moving or looking to move remains urban, not suburban. in other words, people are not abandoning urban areas for the suburbs. thats a myth. the good news about the latter is that means indeed people might be abandoning nyc for cleveland, for example. the bad news is the same trend exists for cleveland and other cities. that is, people might be looking to leave cleveland for another city. in summary it seems its not clear if there is anything here officially trending beyond anecdotal quite yet. so thats a bit of a surprize for me given our building and the west village nyc at least. btw just this morning neighbors who can see into another apt building next to us said the lights are on with many empty apts there too. now i am thinking it might just be our neighborhood, because i was up in wash hts and the bronx today for the first time back for work and it seemed same as ever up there. https://www.curbed.com/2020/7/13/21319909/coronavirus-urban-exodus-cities-moving-suburbs
  2. nyc has definitely emptied out. at least downtown around my way. i see moving vans all the time. street parking is plentiful. our building is half empty. all the young people are gone, only old timers left. streetlife and traffic have picked up lately, but nothing like pre-corona.
  3. massive new development for lic queens on the former amazon annable basin area site: https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-edit-lic-20200712-wcvj23masvd33o2ntwcp36ekfm-story.html

    ny taught me moxie and how to ignore piss smell, but now that i have gotten sick of ramen its time to move to a convent in france and get swole. i dont even know what get swole means, but sounds like it should be put into play here.

  10. i see trump was busy freeing his convicted criminal pals from prison on friday night again. what a coward. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-53373128
  11. brooks bros files for bankruptcy https://nypost.com/2020/07/08/brooks-brothers-files-for-bankruptcy-still-seeking-buyer/
  12. a rare summertime nugget! the ronettes backstage in cleveland (with no ronnie spector, phil would not let her on this tour in one of his nutty, jealous rages). opening for the beatles at the stadium august, 1966
  13. either your head is in the sand or you are totally on board with the rise of far right wing neo nazi symbolism trump is encouraging. at the very least, and lowest, its not as as if his own his own cowardly staff would not promote something like that.
  14. in ny, but it probably could be anywhere with neighboring outdoor street restaurants.
