Looks like nyc is a bore except for all the cool people.

i host many couchsurfers and rarely give keys or let people stay while im at work. get real Peter Geoghegan.sometimes i have time off as i am a commercial fisherman and tree cutter so i have the luxury of being able to show my guest the area, but to arrive with the attitude that your article implies, is ridiculous indeed. as a frequent host and an occasional guest i think you sound like someone i would possibly invite to keep on your merry way after the second night. couchsurfing is not a hotel, hostel, resort, or welfare program. pitch in, make conversation, food, bring drinks, ask questions, etcetera.... if you don't like where your at do some typing and find another host. doubt your old lady will be around next time as she has probably realized you are an inadequate planner as well as a whiner and a self entitled kook.
We are green. As a life long resident of Staten Island I have been composting for 20 years. I have 3 active compost and I collect waste from my neighbors and many of the fancy health food stores in Brooklyn! My father began commuting to work by bicycle in 1978, a tradition I have upheld since 1998. Generalizations and stereotypes don't help anyone.
So please don't resort to Staten Island bashing to make a point. It's unbecoming at best and a stale leftover of pre-Sandy New York.
Williamsburg looks great now.
Whatever, no one wants the fatties other then the brother from the hood, so the selection process sounds great. Nothing close minded about that, look around you for a change.

Kristin...your GoT synopses...fabulous, and a hoot to read. Carry on!
@The Truth: Sorry, kiddo, if you think Manahatta is the living end, you haven't been here long (or perhaps you're just terribly impressionable). As a Manhattan-born expat, the island was happening about two decades ago. Brooklyn stole that thunder a while back, but I cringe at the encroaching Manhattanization going on here.
People, you are Funny and very, very critical! I say love it all and it is a must to work towards making every area of NY a better place, having Brooklyn being one of them! Chill with Love!
well put in your normal, excellent nomenclature Mr. Gallagher. from my own viewpoint
Shimizu, as offered here by Eclipse series offers a necessary link as you mention, from Naruse to Ozu and we are all the better beneficiaries of. the missing link we need to see to completely and understand their culture before they got eat up with occupation of building a world war machine was a collection of warm Sundays and vacationing at summer resorts. none it that much different from our own selves.
fortgreen clinton hills, is a zoo.
I think the two of them have wasted to many years in not working together because of this constant bickering back and forth. They could have accomplished so much more wonderful and terrific music together if they had just been able to get their acts together professionally. When they are on the right page with each other there is nothing better.
Your all in the wrong place. You need to move to London. Americans all over the goddam place these days.
@ Austin, maybe instead of dreaming you could actually read the article and do you have any friends?
avocado is not tastier than eel
I lolz at all the people bitching. This city generates more wealth for its inhabitants and the people making it don't bitch about it on the L magazine web. People move here to follow their dreams, some bust, but hardly all. The stories of grandeur travel far and wide and only those whose dreams are lost bitch about it here.
Never stop dreaming.
Changes are happening don't know if it's for the best, but one thing I will always have in my memories is growing up there in the 1950s and 1960s where the neighborhood was like a family. But with these changes it will never be the same.
This is a little unhinged, and Foer is flatly dishonest.
I was curious enough to have a look at that passage in his book. He backs up his claims with reference to an article entitled "Fish welfare: Current issues in aquaculture," in Applied Animal Behaviour Science vol 104.
So I had a look at that article. It pretty much says the opposite of what he represents it as saying. One of the very first things it acknowledges is that many scientists assert that "fish lack essential brain regions or any functional equivalent, making it untenable that they can experience pain and fear."
So for him to assert "you never have to wonder if the fish on your plate had to suffer. It did." on the basis of that article is total BS.
These photos could be and should be better. The lighting sucks and its the same for all of them
