I spend a lot of time traveling. I'm in Manhattan about 5 days a week for work/fun. I must say, Manhattan is a sad sight to behold. Besides the extreme mid-southern sections, its really a decayed borough. This is why I support gentrification. If you cannot take care of where you live, others will move in and do it instead. You know that old saying "don't crap where you eat?"


Do you guys think its safe to say that the MN is the most rundown borough?

Queens is boring compared to the other boroughs [except maybe Staten Island]. Most of the neighborhoods look the same too. Brooklyn ftw.

Default 7/8 of Staten Island is decrepit

I spend a lot of time traveling. I'm in Staten Island about 2 days a week for family/friends. I must say, Staten Island is a sad sight to behold. Besides the extreme southern section, its really a decayed borough. This is why I support gentrification. If you cannot take care of where you live, others will move in and do it instead. You know that old saying "don't crap where you eat?"


Do you guys think its safe to say that the SI is the most rundown borough?

I think you are missing the point of this thread (and similar ones).

How about 3/4 of Manhattan is overrated and an expensive with the smell of urine!

I would say more like 9.9/10. But this is a BK thread..lets stick with 4/5 which is clearly accurate..right?

You've got some kind of issue with 4/5?

Yeah places like Bushwick aren't really gentrified, they're still rundown and full of crime.

Staten Island is too suburban. Why is it still part of the city? It takes like 4 hours to get to Manhattan from there.
