Virtually all of my friends that live in NYC are neither very rich nor very poor
That is awesome that you jog in from sunnyside! I walk in to work but sweat too much to jog and have any hopes of being presentable
Oh I'm a sweaty mess. But we have a gym (which anyone can join but is free for employees). By far my favorite benefit (I certainly use it more than my health insurance).
even cold showers don't help.
It is true that the middle class here is smaller than anywhere else in the country. It is true that price pressures from both real estate and the cost of living are not slowing down anytime soon. But it is also true that calamity has been forecast for over a century now.
“Soon, there will be no New Yorkers,” proclaimed the Sunday magazine of The New York Times in 1907, in an article that detailed how families making $1,000 to $3,000 a year — $24,000 to $72,000 a year in today’s dollars — were being pushed out because of increasing rents, and servants’ wages, as well as the crushing cost of ice and coal. Adjusted for inflation, laundry alone for a family cost $115 a week. A pound of chicken? $8.08. Rent, on the other hand, for a “small, middle-class flat in a decent, but unfashionable locality,” would seem to be a bargain in today’s market, at the price of $272 per room per month.
I might have to consider something like this. Twenty minutes might be doable. If I run longer, it takes me an hour to cool down, meaning the sweaty mess lasts well into the time after I have showered (or reappears after a shower) and have tried to become presentable. And yes, even cold showers don't help.

There are 1.6 million people living in Manhattan and not all of them have a last name of Forbes or Trump nor are they all living in poverty
4 kids and a dog. I knew a couple of people with 2 kids. Most had one or none.
we don't have this giant house neither. and i wish it WAS bigger. but i wouldn't trade mah kidz for nothin.
(In fact, I'd think having a car in London would be more hassle than its worth)
I'll have to figure out how to return the cards.
Any idea if the stuff to do in Greenwich is open on Sundays?
I kept hitting the curb because I didn't have a good feel for how far the car went in that direction.
And, yeah, the freakin streets, man. Why can't you make them just a little bit wider?
