Is New York over?

I hate to make my first post so negativ, but I have been very depressed lately over the poor selection of clubs in NYC. Like alot of people who post here (and though I have never posted b4 I have read alot) I started going out in the late 1990s (1999 to be exact.) I like many kinds of music and to go out in what used to be called a Gothic/Industrial mixed crowd, like Contempt or more recently MI7 at Pyramid.

The recent news that MI7 is closing already really set me off. It seems like there is no place for our music any more, and little support for even those nights that try, like MI7. And the fact that it has been raining 4 days and I have a crappy job dosnt help.

I guess the reason I am posting is that I feel so low and like leaving NY 4 good. It seems like alot of what I first saw and loved here is gone, and I am fighting so hard to stay, but 4 what?
I know there are not so many Industrial kids or Goths on these boards but alot of club people and of course the Mother people who helped to inspired me to move here. I was kind of hoping that someone here could argue with me that it isnt so bad as I think.

I live in Brooklyn and I sometimes go out here but there is something about Manhattan and going out in the big town that used to make me really happy. Can anyone give me a ray of light?
