is New York City dead?

NYC seems genuinely out of fashion for the first time in my life, and maybe its history? Williamsburg is a punchline, Manhattan both above and below 14th St is just rich fuxors, seems like everything that used to happen in only NYC or LA now happens in LA or some other ascendant metropolis. I am not particularly worldly or sophisticated or mobile these days so I can't offer much more evidence, this is just my lay observation. What u think?

New York isn't dead.
There are still lots of great things about this city.
The things I value might not be the same things others value, of course.

trife's rich padgett (rip van wanko), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:16 (four years ago) link

I mean, IDK, I was out in bushwick recently on a saturday night and it still seemed happening and teeming with young artsy cutting edge types brimming with energy. However it's been rough for a good amount of time now as far as being a city that young people without a bankroll or a professional job can live in, and that definitely cuts into the creative energy of the city some. I mean I don't even think the bronx offers the kinds of rents today that could be had 20 years ago in brooklyn.

Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:18 (four years ago) link

like if you mean "dead" as in "no longer can birth a 'scene' the way it could in the 60s/70s/80s/90s, that might be true just because rents are so high.

Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:21 (four years ago) link

I think that is what I mean. Although "scene" sounds a little tinny/reductive, scenes kind of matter. A city births a scene which creates stuff that matters.

trife's rich padgett (rip van wanko), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:23 (four years ago) link

Is Paris dead? How about London? Those cities are pretty expensive too, and have been for some time. New York is still a place that attracts ambitious young people, including artists, and I don’t expect that to change anytime soon.

o. nate, Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:25 (four years ago) link

well yeah, I mean a scene as in the beats or the greenwich village folk scene or disco or no wave or whatever. Like the combination of cheap living and high density and educational and arts institutions and economic activity that allows for a scene that actually produces something of worth. Like I just don't think there are many corners of the city left where a bunch of musicians could live close to one another and work more or less full time on their music and pay rent waiting tables part time or whatever. And to the extent such pockets exist, they're scattered at the edges of the city instead of centralized.

Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:28 (four years ago) link

All cities are dead because culture travels faster through the Internet than it ever could geographically.

treeship 2, Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:28 (four years ago) link

Rising rents making it hard for young people to live there unless they're being bankrolled is basically true for all major international cities now. Even Berlin's getting expensive these days.

Zelda Zonk, Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:29 (four years ago) link

But hey, there are always aspiring artists with trust funds, so the city will never die

Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:29 (four years ago) link

i don't know the deal w/rents in NYC but i find it funny when people come out to L.A. from there and rhapsodize about how comparatively inexpensive the rent is here.

omar little, Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:30 (four years ago) link

I don't go out much anymore, so maybe there's some lively cheap shit I'm missing out on.

It's also really hard for some people in late middle age (w/out a LUCRATIVE CAREER) to live here.

ice cream social justice (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:30 (four years ago) link

I'm also old and have a family and work a lot, and I just don't really know what's happening anymore. When we went out in Bushwick, we saw some local DJs/electronic artists in a little club and it was absurdly packed and seemed pretty alive.

Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 22:31 (four years ago) link

I guess another thing I've noticed is that galleries tend to show artists from all over the US and world, and I'm guessing that's more true than it used to be. But that's also an internet-erasing-borders thing.

Here's how I think about New York, after my last visit there last summer:

New York is good and the only actual large city in America on the metric of everything existing there. Big cities are the ones where there is everything; you can tell Seattle is a small city because there are things that are not here.

New York is bad in that it smells of garbage. In the summer, hot garbage.

If more American cities grow to populations in the millions, New York will be more dead by comparison due declining uniqueness. Is this going to happen? Who knows.

I do drive into the city regularly. Many mornings I drive in and drop my wife off at work and then drive home. It helps that we live near the Manhattan Bridge and her office is in chinatown. We also might drive in and park for any number of special events.

You can get coops for this (studios or MAYBE 1BRs) in parts of queens, but most likely in a coop so you have to factor in the high monthly maint fees.

I used to live in riverdale. Nice, quiet, cheap, but very limited nightlife / walkability and a lonnnnnnng ride to midtown.

calstars, Tuesday, 22 March 2022 22:11 (three months ago) link

oh I'm in a coop, but the maintenance is cheap (mortgage + maintenance is less than rent in this neighborhood). from what I've seen, similar units in parts of queens (1 bedroom) are in fact much much smaller, due to the proliferation of post-war construction. pre-war (1930s in this case) seems to allot much more space for a foyer, dining area, etc., plus 'top floor, city view, on the park, 2 blocks from the subway' would I think increase the price somewhat more in other boroughs.

tempted to post this on the queens thread instead but it follows up from this...had a great Queens weekend (except for some fussiness at times from the 5 year old) which involved going to Maspeth on saturday afternoon for a friend's art opening. There's a super cool art gallery called Mrs https://www.mrsgallery.com/ in the middle of residential Maspeth. Not anywhere near a train. We parked down the street and immediately found ourselves across from an amazing Polish market that had hot dishes, tons of in-house sausages and pickles and all kinds of products. There's also a few excellent peruvian spots so we picked up some ceviche for dinner. This polish market is an 11 minute drive from my place in Woodside.

And sunday got food from the AMAZING Bolivian Llama Party in sunnyside. Also just learned about a sunday only nexican restaurant that takes place in somebody's backyard a few blocks from my house.

So yeah, Queens isn't dead at least.

dan selzer, Monday, 28 March 2022 13:46 (two months ago) link

Sounds fun. I always wonder about little places like that (the gallery etc) that pop up in the middle of those residential queens areas that are kind of middle class and don't have tons of commercial space nearby, like will they survive? It's hard for me to imagine Maspeth/Glendale/Fresh Pond/Middle Village being "the next Ridgewood" because they are already not all that cheap and don't seem like they offer a lot of spaces for the kinds of businesses the ridgewick crowd would want.

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Monday, 28 March 2022 13:59 (two months ago) link

we had a good queens weekend too!

we went to the queens theatre (next to the museum) to get the 4-year-old some culture, ie a lightly psychedelic fiberoptic-suited tortoise and the hare performance, then ran around the park for a while. the weekend flushing meadows volleyball and cookout scene was unaffected by the unseasonable weather. then we got Perfectly Fine Italian Food from a the Perfectly Fine Italian Place around the corner from us.

those polish markets are so good at steam table food, there's one by me (hetman deli) with unbelievably large and good cutlets and a pungent carrot salad that i eat by the pint.

bolivian llama party rules, i haven't been to the sunnyside one (which took over from another good bolivian spot) but the one that was in the columbus circle subway station was great.

i live half a block from fresh pond and the yupster stuff has made it as far as forest ave, two blocks east of here. there's one evil real estate developer who's made it his mission to bring the washed concrete and houseplant aesthetic to ridgewood and he's slowly winning.

plus, i mean, i'm here and i'm definitely a middle class boho dickhead.

adam, Monday, 28 March 2022 14:05 (two months ago) link

I feel like, for a lot of people, the coronavirus / WFH has made the boroughs more distinct and cut off. I live in Brooklyn, and have been to Manhattan twice in the past two years. Once for a doctor's appointment, once to take my kid to the Natural History museum.

paulhw, Monday, 28 March 2022 14:36 (two months ago) link

The gallery's been there for a while. They own the building and live upstairs, and make art there as well. I'm sure if they were just renting and expecting to make a living as a gallery in a neighborhood like that it wouldn't be so easy. It's very nice though and my friend Rose's show is fantastic in any case.

Anyway the reason none of those neighborhoods will ever be the net ridgewood is because they don't have subway access. That's always been key. And there's always been outliers. I don't know, I suppose if an art community can grow in Red Hook it can happen anywhere, but they had cheap spaces, and the waterfront vibe, for a long time.

There's actually tons of industrial space in woodside. When I moved here 15 years ago I thought it'd be great to get space and thought it'd be affordable but it wasn't...every HVAC, car repair, printer etc that wanted industrial space close to manhattan and on a bunch of highways knew this was a good spot and it was priced accordingly. But maybe due to pandemic or other forces...there's TONS of empty spaces, which I'm sure people will sit on forever. It sucks, walking by all these rent signs on big industrial spaces. Could be so much cool light industry here. Bring us an Industry City!

Of course there's that weird thing in sunnyside now where the evil guy from Uber started a chain of ghost kitchen buildings, which is a good idea.

dan selzer, Monday, 28 March 2022 14:37 (two months ago) link

Nice accounts, y'all! I was actually enjoying a sunny Queens Saturday the previous weekend - took the bus to Maspeth (by which means it's a very short jaunt from Bushwick), and hiked from there to Elmhurst, Corona and Jackson Heights, plus a sunset stop in Sunnyside. The actual premise was knocking incredibly minor buildings off my architecture to-do list, but it was really just an excuse to be out pounding the pavement and taking in the neighborhoods. Beautiful time all throughout, people out enjoying the weather, street market on Junction Boulevard thronging with activity, etc.

Dan, where'd you get the ceviche? That would be a selling point for my partner to join me next time going over there.

Doctor Casino, Monday, 28 March 2022 15:26 (two months ago) link

Mama Pio in Maspeth. Really nice little place. I wonder about the history of peruvian restaurants in NYC. It seems like there's dozens that are basically knock-offs of Pio Pio, who's main location in Jackson Heights is like a football field of families having feasts. I've gotten that same kind of peruvian ceviche at these places, with the leche de tigre and the sweet potato and big hominy and crunchy corn and onions and I really can't get enough of it. Plus the rotisserie chicken at these places is simply the best. I remember reading that Pio Pio marinated theirs in beer and tamarind. There's a place in sunnyside that used to be called Pio Riko and is now just Riko and it's fine but nowhere near as good as Pio Pio. This Mama Pio is maybe as good or better than Pio Pio.

My funny Pio Pio story is the first time we went I didnt know what to get and I ordered the Matador Combo thinking, well, that seems kinda expensive at 28 dollars but a combo seems like a good way to go. Then they brought out the food and I realized it was like for an entire family. A half chicken. A giant plate of tostones. Rice and Beans. Salchipapas (the french fries and hot dog combo), an avocado salad etc etc.
