Born in Queens, I left NYC before it was cool to leave NYC. In 1999 I was 35 and tired of the city kicking my ass up and down the Ave. every fucking day. Fuck NY. Other than 4 good months, all you have left is corrupt cops, insane rents, icy sidewalks in the winter and shit smell in the summer. You used to have danger and excitement. Now everything is pre-chewed. There was a time when NY was for NYers. That time is long gone.
