This is gonna be a sweep. Joe Lhota doesn't stand a chance of winning. I like DeBlasio a lot, but let's see what he does as Mayor before we label him as "the best mayor in the history of the city."

A socialist pig is what De Blasio is. You can tell by his close friends..."The Working Families" and ACORN. Nuff said!

Don't think the 70's couldn't come back. All it would take is a change in attitude, to go back to the go along to get along mentality that was prevalent then. Entropy is always ready to take over.

The week after Bla takes office. The drug dealers will take a few tentative steps outside and try a few street sales. The pimps will send a few of their hookers out to the strolls they haven't been able to use for years. They'll see what happens. If they did that now (under Bloomberg/Kelly), they,d be up against a wall in five minutes. Under Bla, I'm guessing not so much. And if they get away with it, more and more will hit the street.

so I dont think by having de blasio, wether he is good or bad, NY is never getting back to the 70's.

I believe it was Guiliani that took NYC gave it a good smack in the ass and got it to where it is today, and yes, as much as I cannot stand Bloombrg, he kept it going in the right direction, a bit much with the rules, but nonetheless.....

Any major club in Manhattan is full of drug dealers. They just have to act with discretion. The Bronx is certainly full of drug dealers. Weed is pretty common actually.

As for prostitution, most of that's gone online. And that's where it will stay, under phony massage services on craigslist and backpage. Why wall the streets when you can just place an add online? You are seriously naive if you think this disappeared under Bloomberg, and also naive if you think that this will all just run wild in the streets just because of an election.
