Do you think New York will start to become "affordable" again?

Quality of life will definitely improve for the middle class since the middle class were literally shunned for the entire duration of this term.

Many people always knew he was off his rocker but the course of events of the last few weeks legitimately proved&confirmed this.

It really is nothing against him but he should seriously seek treatment afterwards: all jokes aside.

We will grow fat on extra-large sodas and smoke in parks with impunity.

The developers being out of control has little specifically to do with Bloomberg.
This will march ahead in any case.

It depends who is subsequently elected in large part. If we elect the idiot Bill Thompson, you will see someone pandering blatantly for votes to anyone with a dollar to donate, bend over backwards for unions, and play racial politics...he will be a waste of a Mayor and set us back 8 years (best case scenario). Quinn will be a kinder, gentler Bloomberg, with less of a focus on penalizing working folks with quotas/fees/fines (hopefully), but still a major panderer and well trained Democrat. I don't have much of an opinions on most others yet...but much will be revealed during the debates and the major idiots will be exposed.

Hasn't Quinn already started in on the food thing? No matter who gets elected, NYC is going to get less affordable and more authoritarian.

The only way the city becomes more "affordable" is if the new mayor makes the city a less desirable place to live. I don't think we want that.

Agreed. Bill Thompson is the absolute worst choice among all the candidates so far. He'll make the city more "affordable" by turning it into a slum. He plays the race card quite often and that disgusts me. Wiener just seems slimy. Quinn is ok, but not perfect by any stretch. I don't think she would push as hard for development as Bloomberg does.

No more than before he was mayor.
