NYC is on the ropes. The federal govt is going to have to bail out DeBlasio to the tune of billions. And billions.

The scale of the financial catastrophe currently facing state and local governments is so immense that it boggles the imagination.

Overpaid govt employess are nothing new, but when you have an army of them, it adds up.

Businesses are going by the wayside faster than you can count 'em. Crime is surging. Serious violent crime.

What's mayor DeBlasio's answer? Of course! Dancing!


I've said before that DeBlasio and NY governor Cuono are nuts.
They are both clinically insane. We are living in an era where crazy people are running entire states and major cities.

I sent both of them a fruit basket because all of the people leaving NYC are moving out by me and jacking up the property values. Homes are selling in days for well over asking price so good job you two potato heads.

Yeah, it's no joke, the house around the way from me sold in three days, there were nothing but New York license plates in front for the open house and they got $175,000 over asking price. It's nuts.

Unless you plan on moving soon, you might regret the high property taxes that are sure to come along with the exodus to your areas.

Higher, they're already high. I can buy you a nice sedan every year with what I pay in property taxes.

I used to live in Illinois, believe me when I say I understand what property taxes could pay for.
For many there, taxes are right on edge of becoming more than their actual mortgage!

Ohh that sucks! I guess it does remove any notion that we really “own” the house we are in.
At least they still let us paint and decorate it like we want.

I'm on the historic register so there's some qualifiers with that too.

Ohh nice, you must have a little gem!

I miss old house woodwork, attention to detail, and the overall quality of old homes.
I once lived in a very old house. There was an electrical fire.
The plaster walls were so well built and
insulated, it put the fire out before it could spread. Try that in today's houses.

Augustus and Jag,

I want to respond to your comments in a way that mayor deBlasio would be proud, so if I can get my webcam working, I'll reply via interpretive dance.

I still think its all part of the plan for grabbing real estate at rock bottom prices for TPTB

DeBlasio's answer ... is about as useless as this video.

I think it would be a good long term play since you can get office/retail/residential properties on the cheap.

#1 Get rid of baby boomers (this is beneficial two fold, no pension, and real estate)
#2 Scare their kids (middle aged people) from living in the city
#3 Buy up the city property cheap
#4 Wait for Covid to resolve
#5 Sell/rent city property to the grandkids of baby boomers for elevated prices.


We've seen this on a smaller scale on most coastal areas that get hurricanes.
Florida is a perfect example.
Storm comes in, people swear they will never live there again. Developers buy land/properties cheap and hold on.
People always,............always come back...
For NY and other cities, Covid is merely a hurricane for some opportunity for others...
