70's NYC was awesome. My dad is always bitching about it but I think this city lost a bit of it's character when all these rich white cunts moved in.

Still wouldn't live anywhere else though

I hope you under 20 fags realize the old cameras that used film were just as super high fidelity as your 25 meg cell phone camera it's simply a matter of scanning them via hi res photo scanners.

Eh, I have a love/hate relationship with Hipsters. They made the North Shore of Staten Island a nice place and the artists are fun, but I see what happened to Williamsburg when the creative people couldn't afford to live there either and now it's boring tech people with few exceptions like the Last Podcast on the Left guys and can't help but think that may be where we are headed

@TurtleCat

Yeah overall they fucking suck though. Delasio sucks rich people cock so it will never happen but I wish we could put a moratorium on Luxury apartment building and letting rich cunts move in and push all the locals out

Culturally void

Unfortunately the 70's ended, now everyone wants to get rid of it

all the sewage and trash on the street

I was born in Caracas, I know what that's like. It's your home, and you'll always have a soft spot for it, but sometimes I wish it wasn't that way.

@w8t4u
That's a bad thing?

It's fucking awful. Why do you think there's so much crime?

lmao, yeah the cultural Mecca of America is culturally void

homogenous culture > multicultural cities

now everyone wants to get rid of it

Well they're not doing a very good job.

Snooze. You're just some scared cuck who is terrified of other people

Wrong, you moron, it's for the exact opposite reason I prefer smaller, tight-knit communities. No one in New York is your neighbor, they're just a rat in the same maze as you. There's no empathy, no connection between people.

Just because you're surrounded by more people doesn't mean you're less alone.

Here's some 1080p footage of New York in 1993, which is 24 years but that's good enough, right?

This. This is why I'm so jealous of Mexican immigrants. Their home lives are often so great because they have family and close communities. Fucking rich people have to prove they're better than everyone else; our individualism is killing us.

That's not unique to Mexicans; That's how all are immigrants are

All I have experience with are Mexicans and Saudis, and the Saudis are all rich asshats who drive American Muscle and keep their wives holed up in their dorm rooms and won't let them out in public.
