Glad youre safe. Smooches
It's America. Anytime we are inconvenienced by not having our incredible amenities available to us, we freak the eff out. Also, anytime our routine is broken (no subways, closed roads, closed businesses, etc) everyone freaks out.
Also, those that are being affected by a highly publicized storm like to get on social media and act like they are in Ground Zero to their friends and family around the country. They love the attention and they want you to think that they are right in the middle of all of the chaos and that their lives my be in peril.
martin, you are doing the exact opposite.....which is why I consider you my 'bestie' (aka bff).
That what everyone says to each other. Why wouldn't anyone in New York be safe. It's just flooding. Downtown flooded bad but people who can afford to live downtown are not in financial dire straights.
I am mostly curious about trains. Supposedly salt water ruined 7 tunnels including the n w r train tunnels that go from Astoria where I live to midtown.
Just read this: Almost all the national chains in my neighborhood are closed. Almost all the local, independent businesses are open.
Bc it gets you on diatribes. Hence my purpose.
Martinbot would never do that.
Be careful buddy.
Any place where the employees take the train to work is closed. If a corner bodega is owned and run by a neighborhood family then is it closed. In better neighborhoods the smalls business are run by immigrants from way out rego park or bay ridge and those cats can't ride the trains.
Still very curious if the marathon will run. I can't imagine that it will if the trains don't get fixed. I need to ride an r train to the Staten Island ferry to the start and if no trains, no race.
Any water/flooding on your street? How far is the flooding from you?
Sunday's New York Marathon is still on despite the Sandy super storm that has ravaged the East Coast of America.
Organisers New York Road Runners president and CEO, Mary Wittenberg declared on Monday that the hurricane would have no effect on the race despite heavy rains and wind battering the city.
I like how he decides prior. Awesome.
mary wittenberg is cool i see her at races all the time. she runs about as fast as i do, which sounds shameful because she is a woman and kinda old, but she once won a marathon.
its truly a minor problem for me i dont give a shit, but there are thousands of people from all over the world who have tried for years to get into the NY marathon and trained for years as well. sucks for them if it doesnt run. i dont care though.
no flooding in my neighborhood. only thing i notice is that lots of awnings have blown off and are blowing around, like this last night, right outside my apartment:
