I've noticed something over the years that I've never been able to explain and that is the discrepancy between what is shown on TV movies and shows,
even news, when they film things like the subway or parks in NYC (and boroughs) or even just the streets. Sometimes they show subway stations totally
covered in graffiti or litter, sometimes it is the street. I've seen subway trains that are absolutely filthy with trash, graffiti, homeless, etc on
the news or TV/movies but I've never seen this in person. I've been through NYC, Philly, LA, San Diego, San Fran, Baltimore, DC and I haven't seen
this anywhere to the extent that it is on "the tube". Sure there is some graffiti, sometimes it is artwork and not just tagging, and I see some
blocks that are extremely run down that look like a bomb went off, but I don't see miles of homeless or much of what is reported and shown, and I've
been around a lot of NYC, LA and Philly over the years, in many parts of the city and am pretty observant of what is around me.
I have seen some parts of the cities where the sidewalks are totally unlevel, cracked, huge potholes in them, some streets I've seen potholes almost
12"+ deep by 12-15" wide (yeah it was bad, lucky it was residential and near a school with 10mph speed). Some houses are boarded up, others run down
a lot, some trash on the street, but what I've seen on TV is like an order of magnitude worse than what I have seen, maybe more.
Has anyone else noticed this? Maybe you've lived in NYC and you see a report about the subway and it looks NOTHING like what you use in the city,
both in cleanliness and even structure/design (like seat types, colors, etc)? Some of these differences really make me question the reporting and
wondering if they use old movie sets for some of the news reports because they look like they came off a movie set as they are nothing like what is
being used where I've been.
