    I lived in NYC from 2006 to 2017. Manitoba's was one of my go-to bars in the city. My friends and I would pop in after weekend record shopping at Gimme Gimme or A-1, or before a concert at Otto's or the LES. In 2013 I had my first date with my now-wife at Manitoba's. In 2017, my family moved to St Louis. I commissioned this piece from Ryan Thomas Monahan and to me it serves as a wonderful reminder to the city I love and the time that I spent there.

    Picture to be found inside a lost locket, stolen from my apartment during a fire after firefighters and Red Cross went through. Around 10 years ago. A police report did nothing. But the kind of person to steal a locket of invaluable sentiment for its relatively small street value is the scum of the earth. Wouldn’t it be a miracle if it resurfaced.

    Instead of making up neighborhood names, why not change the past connotations and reputations of those neighborhoods? If you're renaming a neighborhood, go for something historical. Name them after historical figures associated with the area or Native American names or something. Just throwing my (dumb) thoughts.

    Eventually the whole city is just going to made up of neighborhoods that sound like some weird Japanese-Portuguese amalgam. "I had lunch in NoLIta, walked west to SoHo and then decided to stroll through TriBeCa. My friends just got to SoBro after getting tired of the prices in SoHY and realized they couldn't raise a kid in FiDi."

    Every area already has a name. Whichever PR firm is coming up with these is lazy and it isn't convincing anyone to move there. The only people putting money into these is foreign criminals anyway. Why brand it?

    What if I were to tell you... SoHo and TriBeCa are made up too. SoHo by a real estate developer and TriBeCa was the result of a zoning dispute court case misinterpreted by a newspaper reporter?

    And also... who the fuck cares what they call a neighborhood? If I lived there and told friends/family I live in SoHY... they wouldn't have a fucking clue. So it doesn't matter.

  • BritainRitten
    1 points Jan 17,2019, 11:48am

    All neighborhood names are ultimately made up by people. As more people move into a new area, there is more reason to distinguish one portion of that area from other parts of what was previously called the a singular neighborhood. Take LIC for example, it's considered one neighborhood, but you'd have a very different living experience in one versus another. It would make sense to differentiate them with different names.

    I really don't know if "SoHY" would fit that bill, but so many other NYers react to new names rather close-mindedly IMO, as exemplified by this thread.

    Instead of making up neighborhood names, why not change the past connotations and reputations of those neighborhoods? If you're renaming a neighborhood, go for something historical. Name them after historical figures associated with the area or Native American names or something. Just throwing my (dumb) thoughts.

    Eventually the whole city is just going to made up of neighborhoods that sound like some weird Japanese-Portuguese amalgam. "I had lunch in NoLIta, walked west to SoHo and then decided to stroll through TriBeCa. My friends just got to SoBro after getting tired of the prices in SoHY and realized they couldn't raise a kid in FiDi."

    Every area already has a name. Whichever PR firm is coming up with these is lazy and it isn't convincing anyone to move there. The only people putting money into these is foreign criminals anyway. Why brand it?

    What if I were to tell you... SoHo and TriBeCa are made up too. SoHo by a real estate developer and TriBeCa was the result of a zoning dispute court case misinterpreted by a newspaper reporter?

    And also... who the fuck cares what they call a neighborhood? If I lived there and told friends/family I live in SoHY... they wouldn't have a fucking clue. So it doesn't matter.

  • BritainRitten
    1 points Jan 17,2019, 11:48am

    All neighborhood names are ultimately made up by people. As more people move into a new area, there is more reason to distinguish one portion of that area from other parts of what was previously called the a singular neighborhood. Take LIC for example, it's considered one neighborhood, but you'd have a very different living experience in one versus another. It would make sense to differentiate them with different names.

    I really don't know if "SoHY" would fit that bill, but so many other NYers react to new names rather close-mindedly IMO, as exemplified by this thread.

    If the buses are that close together that they are all 15-16 minutes away, that means they have bunched up with delays. At least one of those buses should have arrived at your location so far.

    Here's a question nobody seems to have asked so far: Why exactly has it closed, and why on such short notice?

    Is its structural integrity really in so much doubt? If so, that's a really big problem.

    I mean, you're getting 30 second headways, that's pretty damn good. They're just not where you are.

    It looks like they tied the buses together to create a train! 😂😂😂

    "Enhanced" means they washed the blood and vomit off the floor and fished the miscarrage out of the toilet tank. Enjoy!

    And the worst thing is that the first bus will be fucking packed because the crowds have been building up. The same crap happens on my regular route (m100/m101)... no buses for 20 minutes, then three all at once
