NY is an amazing place, like for real it's where I'd live if I could live anywhere.
would you want a reference for ssi housing in Manhattan ? I am probably willing to give you a reference, especially if I choose not to live there, and maybe even of I did choose to sign a lease there. I plan to check it out in person first though once this paperwork process moves along, and then have some information about specific location, crime rate etc
At the moment I am comfortable with my folks, but if they suddenly die or something that'd be something I'd be interested in.
NY though has been somewhere I've gone multiple times to visit. Nowhere else is quite as engrossing for me, the culture is so bustling and the constant movement is so me. Even just sitting around listening to music through earbuds while there is so much more than anywhere else I've been, the shows are good shit, and the few times I interacted with locals led to some interesting situations.
I miss it so much, and I'm overdue to get a new New York hoodie to replace my old one.
Stop obsessing over New York. It’s not the great fucking place you think it is. You haven’t seen the poverty, you haven’t seen the ghettos and the starving black families. You only see the good side because you tour the fucking center of New York City.
I lived in New York for 7 years and it was just fucking terrible. Gangs everywhere, drugs dealers on every corner and people shooting up dope and starving families. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows.
You just see the good side because you tour the buildings owned by oppressive billionaires and where the wealthy pieces of shit live.
Stop living in a day dream.
