Where’s HellUpInHarlem yelling about how “ratchet” the Bronx is?
HellUpInHarlem hates the Bronx as just as bad as supermario.

I haven't heard much from supermario, but HellUpInHarlem seems to have been robbed in the Bronx or something, like he has a personal vendetta against you guys living there.

I wouldn't be surprised if when caught the person worked for a delivery company or utility company.
I have been seeing and hearing about more crimes though in Queens of late. In Whitestone, I've seen photos of cars on cylinder blocks... Something I would expect to see more in the Bronx.

I was downtown this week, and I can confirm that at the shiny new Fulton Street Station, there are at least two homeless people permanently living inside the men's public bathroom

I worked at a shared office space in midtown once and there were a couple of run in and run out theft jobs grabbing a single laptop and running out. We found out later one of the bicycle courier guys had been tipping thieves to easy places to steal things inside office buildings and exactly where to go.

Not sure with riding the MTA during commuter hours has to do with anything. I'd say there are MORE homeless taking up seats on the off hours trains I use the system.

I'm aware police in Europe suppress information and probably for good reason. It helps prevent the paranoid sensationalism like that being showcased in this thread.

On that note... any links to where NYC (Democrats) are suppressing data on crime?

I'm more surprised at the fact that you attempted to use a MTA bathroom...

Who said anything about "commuter hours"? I commented about you likely not using the subways in general. On that note, no I don't have any links. Just use common sense. Not everyone is living in a bubble like some people in this thread.

hah! and yeah I was leaning sideways to not step on the giant puddle of who the hell knows what and avoiding putting my hands on anything

I should have known better, even a brand new shiny stainless steel bathroom in a place with 24/7 security guards in NYC is going to get trashed

Here you are going on the actual data again, GoHuskies, like some kind of reality-based person. Don't you know better? People who want to be scared of black or brown people are going to stay scared no matter what you tell them.

(I ride the subways twice a day at least. I see homeless people who are probably mentally ill all the time. The worst thing most of them do is stink like hell. Which I certainly don't enjoy, but imagine how bad a shape you have to be in not to mind that you smell like that and have some pity in your heart. You see the occasional agitated one, but you also see agitated *******s in business suits.)
