Imagine growing up without trees and grass? Hell there is a "fresh air" program that takes kids out of the city for the summers to live with families in the suburbs. (Suffolk)

Why would they bother with this if the city was oh so perfect and wonderful and the suburbs was such a dump? do us all a favor, pack your bags and move there already if it is so fabulous and beloved to you.
HOBOS! I love that old-timey word. Do the HOBOS out in Suffolk walk around with their belongs tied in a little bandana on a stick they carry over their shoulder?

There is that thing called "Central Park" in Manhattan. Plus there are parks all over the 5 boroughs.

As for the Fresh Air Fund, please note families in NASSAU also take kids for the summer. It is by no means only Suffolk.

Who said the suburbs are a dump?

The ‘70s are over. They've even cleaned up Times Square and gotten rid of those squeegee guys too.

I guess they'll be closing down all of those world famous museums and theaters since there's "just nothing there of interest"...

When are the tourists from all over the world going to find out? I'm tired of giving them directions and snapping photos of them. I'm tired of them standing in my way looking up at the tall buildings. I'm tired of them looking at me like I'm a part of the tourist attraction from their perches atop the tour buses! Why can't these darn tourists have some sense and realize there is nothing worthwhile here? Dummies. All dummies! (Any resemblance to any person living or dead is purely coincidental.

Do you actually speak the english language or? you all take it wayyyy further then it is and go off on hissy fits.

Manhattan is a hole. Queens is overrun with foreigners (as is much of Nassau now) and Brooklyn and the Bronx should just be blown off the map. Nothing you super intelligent know it alls tell me will change my opinion.

maybe if I feel like spending 3 grand a month on a studio to walk outside and see a guy pissing on my building, i'll pick up and rent a big ol closet (oops i mean apartment) in Manhattan. Sorry I like land. Central park is a joke you cant seriously count that.

and when will all the tourists find out? who the hell cares? they are all foreigners too who see NYC on tv and havent a clue. They probably whiped there @ss with leaves before they even came to this country so thats meaningless to me as well. Fcck cares about tourists.

Montauk is a tourist spot too - check it out sometime, unless you need to be surrounded by filth and noise at all times.
