Aside from that we had an awesome time.

Going to NYC on a regular base and have gone there for the last 20 years, we can clearly see how under Giuliani the city looked the best. Under Bloomberg the city still looked ok but not as great as under Giuliani.

But now under De Blasio the city is turning to a city of garbage! Very sad to see.
De Blasio is the worse Mayor in decades. He is undoing all the financial work and stability that Koch, Giuliani and Bloomberg did to get the city's finances in order.

Talk to Trump. He's from the Bronx, maybe he'll help you clean up the city.

There is actually a lot of money in Ozarks especially around the lakes. Of course there are poor drug addicts but you will find many more in nyc.

It is a per capita deal.
The desire to be impaired is not isolated to the metro world of cement and steel. Self control is hard to teach free people, that have all the liberty to partake.

NYC is still a special city to go to.

Hudon Yards opened and the area is looking nice. But for how long as the left and the right agree on one thing about NYC, that DeBlasio has destroyed what was so great about NYC.

And you think Guilianis idea to remove all benches from Penn Station to drive away the homeless worked? Nop. They just pulled up a nearby wall. Meanwhile commuters had to stand.

you've been visiting nyc for 20 years, but Guiliani was last mayor of the city 20 years ago, but somehow you know how it was under Guiliani compared to Deblasio? Not to mention things happen in 20 years time. Guiliani himself is mentally ill now, forget about the people roaming the streets here.
