Sorry but 1 & 3 are true.

funny thing is you'll probably get repped because most people on here choose to ignore the truth for whatever reason...

Queens and Staten Island is middle class haven and there are entire neighborhoods that are dominated by Republicans where if you even have a liberal thought, you will get eaten alive in those areas...

In Brooklyn the entire section of South Brooklyn aside from maybe one or two areas are still middle class and republican as well and living in North Brooklyn for a long period of time and still having family there and spending time talking to the people that aren't so blindly left its pathetic (hipsters)... there's actually more Conservatives/Republican Black and Hispanic folk now than there was when I was living there...

Reasons for why this may be true... Those that used to be screwed over due to race were eventually able to get decent jobs and have purchased homes in these areas and now have created a stable working middle class group among the poor or government assisted types...

My final point about your statement... When all you do (since you scream hipster from your posts) is deal with hipsters, live in hipster neighborhoods, do hipster things, you're gonna assume that these are the only people living in NYC along with the rich elitist and the poor government assisted types... However, when you finally decide to branch out and not isolate yourself to the world like 95% of hipster types decide to do... and you take a look at NYC past manhattan and Williamsburg... you'll realize this city still has a strong stable working middle class that isn't going anywhere... Sorry to disappoint you...

This one can be settled with facts.

Center for Urban Research - 2008 Voting Results

NYC went more than 80% for Obama in 2008. There may be a misconception out there that it's 95% liberal, rather than 80%. But it's still overwhelmingly liberal.

Notice that the only really solid red areas outside Staten Island are Hasidic neighborhoods and Breezy Point. Bay Ridge is mostly blue. Even the areas of Brooklyn and Queens with more Republicans are a mix of pink and blue. Most of the city is dark blue.

Re: "If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere"

This is true in some fields, and very false in others.

Oh no, you didn't !


How dare you present facts to anon1 when personal experience and hearsay are perfectly acceptable proof for him?


God damn you people with facts and reasons. Why you gotta burst the bubble?

Looking at how the city voted for one presidential race isn't the way to gauge whose republican or democrat but thank you for deciding the entire cities political stance based on one election... Again we are seeing the intelligence of posters in full display on these threads recently...
