Default In New York, if you escape the diseased needles, the bicycles willget you

"One needs to walk only a block or two in any direction in America’s largest metropolis to witness the borderline dystopian cesspool that New York City has become. Litter. Garbage. Filth. Homeless people are camped on sidewalks, benches, and storefronts. Drug addicts casually light up and shoot up al fresco. Blaring taxi and limousine horns pierce the air at all hours of the day and night. Bicycles speed the wrong way on one-way thoroughfares (often through red lights), weave through moving traffic, menace pedestrians, and mock the taxpayer-funded Vision Zero street-safety boondoggle."

Oh boy, the hellhole that was New York when I worked there sounds like a paradise compared to what that faux socialist De Blasio has turned it into.

On the bright side - he is turning it back to conservative. Sort of like California where Moonbeam has 46% of the people saying they want to move out of the state. And in case that might have been hyperbole I keep an eye out when riding through areas of moneyed people. In ONE block I counted 11 for sale signs in a state that is claiming that there is a housing shortage.

I hope those people selling their houses in NY aren't moving to California, where real estate is even more expensive due to out of control zoning regulation.

I'm not sure there is a permanent solution to the megapolis: its mere size might be the problem.

It also seems to me that the New Yorkers get fed up every few cycles by the tip wannabe socialists turn their city into, elect a Giuliani workalike, and as soon as he's cleared the crime and other detritus off the streets, allow themselves to be sweet-talked by another left-winger into giving incompetence a renewed lease. The memory of "the people" is pretty short and ahistorical, and that's even more true about the "people's champions" such as their latest darling Alexandria double-barrel, who seems to thrive on her dire ignorance, including of economics, in which she took a degree at what used to be a perfectly decent college.
