I haven't read thru' the whole thread but what's so wrong with missing the good old days relative to each person's own nostalgic references? I don't get the "get over it" thing about that.
People miss certain times, no reason to criticize or get wigged out over it. The same person who might post missing certain times are still here, so for all intents and purposes they do move on.
The ones who think they're all so changing and forward could use a dose of "get over it" as well as anybody else. New Yorkers have been changing since back in the day, it ain't nothing new at all.

I think what I find more annoying than anything is people trying too hard, acting fake. I thought NYC was totally unlike L.A. until I came... and found Manhattan especially to be filled with the same kind of plastic people. It was like if you added palm trees it would pretty much be the same thing.

Right, Manhattan - it's 4 other boroughs transplants always seems to push aside. Lol Stay in Manhattan so us natives don't have to bother with you.

Oh and on a side note Apple is planning to add a store in Brooklyn!!!! Call me whatever but Steve Jobs is like my dad :-p Apple Rules!

I was thinking something along the same line. Actually, altho' it's hard for me to explain, in a way that very 'plastic-ness' is sort of what this thread is, if I can say,wanting people to be.

Um, I don't live in Manhattan or anywhere near NYC for that matter. And you don't even know me, talk about stereotypes... sheesh... I didn't like the outer boroughs any better BTW. I guess the only way you could think living like that is great is if you lived there forever and didn't know any better... you have my sympathies

Yeah, I kind of got that from the word "came" which applies to the past. Smfh talk about people who can't interpret outside the box.

And I wasn't talking specifically to YOU - I was talking about the majority of transplants who think NYC is just the smallest borough. Lol

Stereotypes? Which one, where NYer's are "mean"?

You'll live.

Good example of why I will never live in NYC- on my last visit this past fall I took a cab to the airport. There was a credit card machine in the back. At the end of the ride I swiped it and told the guy I'd tip with cash. He started screaming at me with his thick, foreign, curry-soaked accent 'Swipe again! It no read! Swipe!!' I tried it a few times and told him it didn't seem to be working. I was about to pick up my wallet and just pay cash, but he started to scream 'Out! Just get the **** out!' I was so shaken by that I just did as he told me. Got a free cab ride, but the aftertaste didn't sit too well.

Sorry to hear but thats how NYC is sometimes...rough and tumble atmosphere. Sometimes life is so fast paced for us we dont have time for the niceties.

I remember there was one vehement anti-hipster on Craigslist years ago who called hipsters "funpigs". LOL! I burst out laughing because that does seem to be their focus - Fun, play, fun, drink, fun, eat, screw, play foosball, check bank account to see if mommy and daddy added da funds. They're white but will say stuff like "Later, nee-groes" (translation: "Bye for now") and other things that scream "I'm super immature and make no apologies for it!!"
Later Neee gros?? Please tell me you are making it up?
