  1. Hey the Knicks in very weak NBA Eastern Division should win at least a round in the playoffs and keep attention away from our local baseball clubs not having a great season. And only 4 months until NFL Trainning camps if both teams stink up the joint.
  2. Hey it probably been as far back as say 1968 when either or both NY area MLB clubs was not a top playoff/world series contender at same time.
  3. Man this is the 1st time maybe in my lifetime that the opening of the MLB season here in NY area not be pumped up as normal. Few times circa 1999/2000 both teams were world series contenders or say 1980 Yankees were good and Mets crappy or 1988 Mets WS Contenders and Yanks at best a 2nd-3rd place club. reactions why?
  4. Actually depending on what It is, a broadway show can be fun. Granted it mortage type expensive now but still worth going my young friend at least 1x. FYI. There TXTS that sells Bway shows on same day as performernce at least 25% off.
  5. Hey got a bunch of former residents from the boros here in Hudson Valley as well. Don't forget the Poconos as well. Thus I am Not surprised former new Yorkers are in the Tampa area as well. Other "hot" spot for transplanted new Yorkers around the country include 1)Miami 2)LA/Southern Calif. 3)Va. Beach/Norfolk area 4)North Carolina.
  6. Its same thing in other east coast cities like Washington and Boston. What the point of this VG8? DC in which majority of workers are federal government employees, just like that nyc, tourists from around the world take over that town on weekends. Can't explain why but hey you could visit Fargo, North Dakota and it's 98% "locals" lol. VG8 I thought you enjoyed the big apple being so a famous city around the globe.
  7. What up with cashman and these AARP or near ancient players? And he did not resign Raul and Martin? Wells 5-6 years ago was a good player. Now at best he's a bench player on a good team. Not to mention Jeter's injury and this could be a long season in the Bronx. Saving grace is that the AL East is maybe the weakest it's been in years with no clear favorite. Other than the Sox any of the other teams can win it.
  8. If you looked on Bayview Ave (where start of NY Harbor is)you can see it. Ditto on the wonder wheel and parts of sea gate(before it got washed away).
  9. Actually CI if you count Russian Immigrants was diverse. I never called CI (Great Neck, LI) either but the tone of your thread does make it worse than what it was. Also I am also "mixed" myself. That my point. FYI. IMO Far Rockaway, certain parts of East NY, East Flatbush(no offense to B35) Jamaica, Queens and Long Island City I would consider more of a dump. How could you not beat the views of the VZ Bridge.
  10. VG8 sounding like archer bunker. Yes CI had problems but there goes your riff raff comment again. I was raised there. Not everyone from CI was a gang member. Insulting me. And yes some ppl did visit the neighborhood pass the asument park
  11. reopening of coney island for 2013 season has received national media attention. http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/coney-island-reopens-time-superstorm-sandy-18800492
  12. As someone who grew up in CI (the homes on West 37th across from sea rise apt. towers and sea gate) the area that always was the "hood" was 1)Carey Gardens the PJ"s on West 23rd between Surf and Mermaid and 2)those pj's (forgot name)on Neptune between Bayview/West 31rd and West 33rd St. And yes at one point in early 1980's (like much of NYC) there was a drug/crime problem in CI especially in those forementioned projects.
  13. They may have a Wonder Wheel, but they don’t have a library or a bank. Coney Island residents say Superstorm Sandy wiped out neighborhood basics — and five months later they’re still doing without. “We’re the forgotten Coney Island,” said W. 17th St. resident business owner Edwin Cosme, 52. “There’s more to our neighborhood than the glamor of the rides and the beach and the ocean breeze. “We wake up every day and deal with stress and the conditions that linger after Sandy.” Cosme and other residents are riled about two dozen closures of community centers, social-service agencies and a major clinic. Also, 25% of Mermaid Ave.’s stores are still shut — from bodegas to the McDonald’s and Coney’s only Citibank branch. Cosme closed a Mermaid Ave. electronics store after $60,000 in storm damage; he’s trying to build a bakery in its place. He’s part of a group planning a protest Sunday during the opening of Coney’s iconic amusement area. “We’re still longing for the things that make a community whole,” said neighborhood activist Todd Dobrin who will join the demonstration. As amusement park operators do final prep for their storm comeback celebration, some residents say they’re not ready to party.

  14. Concourse you make a good point. However CBS does not have anyone right now to replace Letterman. Plus Letterman just signed I think year or two ago, an extension and will be at that 1135pm slot for at least another few years. Despite fact letterman is age 65. Hey if Regis can host his morning show until his later 70's, why not Letterman?(Not saying I am his biggest fan)
