This brickwork is sort of reddish-brown, I think that's what he means.



This one is definitely brown... he may have a point!

Good luck getting a room at the Dakota, sweetie. You'll most likely live in a tenement that looks remarkably similar to the ones that dominate Roosevelt island.

I'm not that naive, I don't expect to live in places like this! But it's free to walk past them and enjoy. Very few buildings out west can even come close, you must admit.

Have you ever driven around Koreatown and taken a look at some of the buildings there?

Yeah but Koreatown is a dump. And I'd be afraid to get out of my car. Unless it's gotten a lot better lately...

Yeah, if you're afraid to step out of your car in Koreatown, don't bother going to NYC...

In any case yes, it has gotten nicer over the last five or so years. It's actually a pretty cool area; I like it a lot more now than I did when I lived there ten years ago.
