Dyker Heights, Bath Beach, Gravesend, Bensonhurst... screw the hipsters and a artists. These are real neighborhoods
You left out .. Marine park - Gerritsen beach
As a fellow Irish person and a great advocate of couchsurfing - having hosted and couchsurfered on many occasions, I have nothing but good things to say about couchsurfing. As I read through your article, I expected that you would have left after your first night of 'hell' as you would see it, but no, you went back to stay 2 more nights. Really, I would appreciate if you would not use couchsurfing as a punchbag for your lack of taking responsibility for your own actions. After all Peter, I always learnt that in life, if we're not happy with something, we empower ourselves by changing it. Perhaps you would like to pen an article on this topic!
As for couchsurfing, I again reiterate to all of those out there who are contemplating joining it - PLEASE do. You will meet the most amazing people and will have wonderful nourishing experiences.
