All this talk about people moving out of the city since March has got me wondering if anything will change real-estate wise in the long term.

I remember back in 2008-009, everyone was convinced that new construction was going to grind to a halt on account of all the problems in the real estate market at the time, but looking back, the recession hardly made a dent; most builders just kept on building.

Prices went down in 2008-2009 and took some time to rebound. Rental prices have definitely went down.

What's the deal with these guys who modify their car stereo to the point the whole car vibrates? Do they really think blasting shitty music at 150 decibels while riding around in a 2000 Toyota Camry makes them badass?  Cause that shit ain't dope- it's wack.

Agreed, and it's no different than these dudes walking around here with pubes on their faces to appear more rugged/hypermasculine..... They can have all that god damn facial hair, I'm good with what naturally protruded from my face.... Insecurity is a mother', I swear...

I'm all for bumping old school shit, but it don't need to be that damn loud.... Worse than that, dudes be blasting the shit that was wack Back Then....

You had to be there back in the 90s and 00s when we'd have car meetups to show off engine mods and beat upgrades. And it wasn't like out here - fart can mufflers off eBay and shitty AutoZone subwoofers.

You'd have Borla or GReddy catbacks and folks with cushions under the license plates and Dynamat lining the trunk so the rattle did👏🏾not👏🏾happen.

And it was all for show to get the hot girls' attention, and to try getting sponsored by the aftermarket companies and getting appearance fees at SEMA and Hot Import Nights.

Ain't as big in Cali and the South now since the manufacturers started incorporating what we were doing in their OEM builds - 1000+ watt stereos; sharp angle or predator styling to look like what Erebuni, Veilside, and even indie shops like Extreme Dimensions were doing. Plus when we hit $4.75/gallon gas at the end of the Bush years and early Obama years (the majors in Cali closed refineries; Chevron had a huge fire at one in North SF Bay that took years to fix), we just bought better cars and "grew up" or had kids to feed.

Those were the days. But whatever it is here in NY, it's the "Rent is too damn high" version and is too cheap and sloppy.
