I live in Far Rock and I go out for cigarettes 2 in the morning frequently. Maybe I'm missing your point here....
Hmmm, I dont see that in her post. She is just saying that she can have a nice time hanging out in her hood and in another one. That is basically her opinion and her observations. All valid points. Stop attacking her.

Cyrusjul maybe I'm missing something here but I don't see that because a person is disagreeing with someone else that that is an attack. I don't think that what you quoted is an attack. These 2 posters see things differently.

The thing about the NY forum that maybe different from other forums is that we are passionate about what we think and we NYer's tend to communicate this in speech and I see also in our writing.

I understand, but if SeventhFloor has something to say, then please post somenthing about a particular neighborhood(s) he wants to talk about and his experiences, I welcome that. That is the purpose of this thread I created. But quoting her and judging her that she is saying this....

Which I didn't read it from her post, that is going after her and attacking her personally, by making things up. Let eveybody on this board post their observations. So other people can come here and read about people experiences in these hoods.

in addition people's perceptions are formed by their postion in life, when I was in my 20's I'd do things and go places I'd never go now. People change and their perceptions change. People like the gal from the bronx who thinks living there is great, but she's never lived anywhere else, so she really has no way of knowing that other places can be nicer, she's content with where she is so in her eyes why wouldn't anyone else be content living there, but if she had the experience that others have of living in different places her mindset might be different.
If the bronx is all you know then you can't really understand why other people hold it in such low regard

Where does she lives anyway? It is probably not the greatest area of the Bronx, but it can't be the wost area.

who cares my point is she's not a realist.
you can put her in park hill staten island and she'll be happy because she knows the building wu-tang's from
she thinks every neighborhood is good

let it rest on your souls when some midwesterner moves here and makes the 10 PM news just for the sake of homeownership.

maybe that poor kid who stuck his head out the window in bushwick had parents that were 1st time homeowners. maybe got advice from the forum illustrating just the good and not the bad. who knows.

I see, so there are infact a few places she will avoid. I guess not everything are a garden of Roses for her. Stop judging her.
