My dear beloved NYC exists no more

RIP Ole New York City..Where have you gone and how did the powers that be convert the coolest city in the world into corporate sameness amplified by it’s bland numbing omniscience? I headed to the once great Manhattan on the L from the once great Bushwick, Brooklyn; a dying ember extinguished by astronomical rentals and more unimaginative construction crushing the once verdant creative youth and the glorification of bland.

Where did you go? And why did you leave me?

One recent brilliant March Sunday, walking the streets, searching for the landmarks of the glorious past I discovered that not much remains.

Something remains but it ain’t the same.
