There it is. He’s actually explaining a lot about the subway systems rn and I like it haha
Damn I just saw Senses Fail there back in 2017 and definitely didn't even realize they had closed (for reno I see). I love this venue, glad it's opening back up.
I'd almost be disappointed if it didn't.
Best places to eat (around lunch time) in Chelsea? Was looking at checking out Blackbarn by Madison Square Park.
BLACKBARN - Farm-to-Table American Cuisine in NoMad & Chelsea Market NYC
Williamsburg just became 10x more expensive
good for the peeps that bought property there when the prices started to dip lol
People likely moved out of Williamsburg because of the shutdown. Wild
I’m on the Williamsburg/Greenpoint border and I’m incredibly happy that I don’t have to worry about my commute in anymore, at least it seems that way. I’ve been lucky and my landlord hasn’t raised rent in the 4 years I’ve been here. I like the spot and moved all of my life, this is the longest I've lived in one place.
I’m looking to move to Greenpoint in the next two months! I was nervous with the L and it being hectic but I’m much more at ease now
the real fucking tragedy is the G - never fucking runs when I need it
Los Tacos 1 - probably the best tacos in the city
Los Mariscos - from the same people that own Los Tacos, prob the best seafood tacos in the city
Motel Morris - upscale looking but pretty affordable, more sit-down lunch
Crispo - pasta/italian
Cookshop - american fare/brunch
Del Posto - if your boss is paying
Toro - spanish tapas
Coopers - great beer/sandwich spot
That's a bummer. Hadn't been there in years to be honest, though.
I caught a lot of great shows there. I remember seeing Coheed and Cambria there as a freshman at NYU in 2007 and during In Keeping Secrets I straight out of a cartoon-slipping-on-a-banana-peel-status flew up in the air and busted ass in a gnarly pit. Thought I was about to get stomped into oblivion but some dude picked me up immediately, dusted me off, shook my hand and we went about thrashing like nothing happened. Makes me giggle. Remember that like it was yesterday.
here's a question ive recently been contemplating. I know nothing about real estate really but my question is how come more companies dont just flat out buy out some of these pieces of property in NYC. Are the landlords just not selling because why would they or... what. Like it blows my mind that humongous corporations often have to leave a certain area in NYC because they couldn't afford the rent.
Why don't they just buy the building? And like, who are these landlords and how fucking filthy rich are they?
