Reply to "Is New York over?"

Firstly let me say that i do think it IS fab how all the ole Jackie crowd have gathered on these boards.... its a great support group, it's also a wonderful forum for discussion/ideas/politics and general world domination! But this is all virtual and we all could (and can)be anywhere.... that's how i feel about NYC... what Betty says is right about making your own fun... and NYC is still a fab place where you can seek out allot of scenes that just don't exist in Kansas! NYC is also the only place where i can make enough money in an easy way to have a decent standard of living.... but i hate more and more the jingoism of this country which is now just xenophobia and paranoia... plus for "the land of the free" NYC is so conservative... from no dancin in the bars to no gays in the parade... to bans on freedom to travel to Cuba...it grinds me down and makes me want to leave.
I think the Era of Jackie 60 was a wonderful time for NYC... when the meat packin district ws just that. It's long since gone and i think might resurge once we have hit another low (eg another wall st crash or terrorist attack)... but don't hold ya breathe.... Defo go seek out other scenes and places.. lend yourself to other stuff and it is often suprising how much fun u can have (believe me... i went to see a friggin B'way show the other day The Lion King... went kickin and screaming...but came out loving it - much to my chagrin!). I was in London all last wk and believe me there ain't anything happening there...
either... stay in NYC to make the Benjamins..but keep the cash to travel freely! (And buy Betty D a beer!)...I say we ALL move to Chiapas! (* Chiapas ...mexican area controlled by an alternative coalitiion, a no-go area for the Government..anarchist running a socialist state ..which promotes freedom of speech, beliefs and sexuality! Seek it out... I'm ready to move!)
