Every city was dangerous back then. NYC was just ground zero... White flight smh. Crazy how they left cities to rot and now they're moving back to them and kicking minorities out. It was all apart of the plan.

what's with the conspiracy theories - if minorities wanted to stay they should have bought property instead of paying more in rent for 30 years. It's not a racism thing it's an education/economic intelligence thing

This is so true. NYC is unique in that some of the best nights to go out (for clubbing) are regular weeknights like Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. While weekend nights usually suck because its tons of NJ people/out of towners going out, super crowded and music is usually generic.

I have friends that relocated to L.A. and they were shocked to see that clubs there close at 2AM. I feel like the NY standard for clubs closing is like 4AM, with it sometimes even extending to 5, depending on how live the party gets.

except that "city that never sleeps" would imply 24/7 and 2 am or 4 am is not 24 hours a day

Weed is legal in DC. Half the city is high. Smoking weed every day and being boring are not the same thing. But I hear ya.

Exactly! You can have a poppin Tuesday night and have late night food options when you're done.

Like you said, weeknights can be better for going out because the places that are stupidly crowded on weekends will have just the right amount of people.

The racism back then was played out in restrictive covenants disallowing minorities from owning in many places as well as being accepted for mortgages despite similar backgrounds to non-minority citizens. I'm surprised you didn't know about this.

I do know about it, but I'm talking about the past 40 years and especially the last 10-20 with the regulations where anyone who worked hard and saved for a down payment could have bought at a mortgage similar to the rent
