General NY thread. You know the drill.
Random post, sorry.
But guys who live in upstate NY, how is it there? Is it hard to find jobs?? I plan to move upstate form NYC ... either upstate or some country like like Iowa or someting. ..
BUT HOW DO YOU LIKE UPSTATE NYY??
315 here. It can be nice, although my town is a tourist trap during christmas, and a feminist trap all year round. I find jobs pretty easy, haven't had to look for one in a year and a half. Over all I like it, lot of country roads to drive on when you need an escape.
585 23/male I like to wear girl clothes and get high.
Its not bad, but NYC and Albany basically have us in a stranglehold. We can't really do anything that we want that goes against the city even though were basically a different state.
That being said, taxes suck ass, but cost of living is probably a bit less than down there
Just bored with my everyday life and would love to talk and maybe meet some new people. Possibly, but not likely, a girl even?
We get a lot of people in the 25+ threads, but these thread themselves are pretty abysmal.
Still, fuck it. Into art/reading/music. Would be into making a pal or hookup.
Rich people live EVERYWHERE in NYS. The difference in the NYC area is they all live on top of each other like rats in a cage. Where as upstate is spread out so you have the poor towns and the rich towns.
Fuck that noise I'll leave, I'd rather be broke and not in the city, then be in be anywhere near the city, too close as it is. I'll fucking leave NYS before I move any closer to the city. As it is I may leave regardless, upstate is dying because Albany and you fucks downstate have no clue whats good for the rest of the state.
I'm in 607 but it's huge
Love it but basically what >>23168975
Not far from Oneonta but I can't help ya with that.
Not socially awkward
Would like to find a cool girl to catch a movie with or something. Cool with just hanging out casually and going from there
>Not buying a nice acreage innawoods with some trails to boot, plopping down a double wide and a septic tank, going shooting, fishing, hiking and ATVing, and if necessary come down to NYC or Philly once per month
New group for empire staters
if my picture interests you lets meet
We're better than that New York.
Looking for chill/smoke/drink/vidya/hangout opportunities and good people to share em with in NYC and lower westchester.
Down to chat with non locals too so dont be shy if your interested.
No preferences, all welcome.
I know, I know. It's in Williamsburg. But maybe we can overlook that and grab a drink, smoke a joint, and hopefully not get caught in the storm.
Not really you used to be able to get traditional foodstuffs from every country in their prospective neighborhoods. Now that they've forced the locals out with insanely high rent and taxes you can't get good traditional food anymore.
dude, The Wetlands closed when you were 16
There are a million authentic Latino, Asian, etc. restaurants, you don't have to look very hard
Almost every bar I've been to in the East Village and Lower East Side has been dark, and the music they played varied but was usually good
Exactly this fucking guy almost gets it, except I only go to the city for funerals.
I must admit there is a lot of white trash inbreds up here in various areas and it's starting to get to me, but on its worst day it's better than nyc or orange county. People are sheltered, and generally never leave their shit hole white trash towns. They have no idea how much fun they could've had growing up.
Exactly, it's a gigantic shit hole that ruined this whole state. I did have fun going there to get drunk and see live djs, but other than that it's worse than the worse white trash town i've seen.
If anyone wants to chill i'm down. I've been in this area for a couple years and I need a wingman.
No car, but would love to go down to the city, someone willing to pick me up, and make a trip? I can contribute (as of now) max $250. If more is needed I can save and chat/plan until we decide to go. Leave your lik if interested.
Supposed to be going to the city via limo for friends bday on Saturday. Where the good cloobs at? Where are all teh pretteh womenz?
Have you seen Sunset park near bay ridge? Check out some of the non-gentrified and non yuppieville neighborhoods in brooklyn.
Hell, head over to 8th ave china town and pay attention to the houses around the area. Or head to barclays and check the way people live once you get >10 blocks away from it.
a... real woman??? in 315??? my age????
lets smoke a bowl sweetcheeks
"A bit" less? Are you retarded? The cost of living in NYC is completely insane, and the "stranglehold" thing goes both ways. I've got nothing against upstate New York, but we really should be two different states. It doesn't make any sense.
I honestly wouldn't mind sleeping in a car ... I just want to take a trip with someone. and money shouldn't really be an issue in a week or so. Just a little tight right now is all.
I sit in my room and make minimal techno, go to shows, play vidya, do drugs, dance,
I'm not interested in guys romantically/sexually.
I'm also from 315 but finally moved away from that shithole, but visiting is relatively easy, so yeah.
People with your logic are the reason this state sucks now.
"lets not do something beneficial for millions of people living upstate because of something as retarded as an asymmetric shape."
so you'd really want one state that looks like the left image and one state that looks like the right image? do you know how retarded that would look on a map???
also it wouldn't be mutually beneficial, if anything it'd be mutually detrimental
I drew the borders at the counties where the Metro-North lines end, figuring that was a fair way to determine what was part of the greater metropolitan area
but yeah, it'd look hideous and it'd be economically disastrous, especially since upstate is where most of NYC's food comes from
Utica/Herkimer area, never really been to watertown. Add me on snapchat so i know you exist
do you have a kik? I'm close to NYC and I can provide you a place to stay for the weekend, I know it's a lot to ask of someone to take that long bus ride solo but it can be a great trip and I can help you out with any expenses down here
1. It looks stupid
2. Upper NY would be screwed because it won't be getting all the tax money that comes in from NYC, Westchester, and Long Island, it'll basically become a shitty third-world state like Alabama
3. Lower NY would be screwed because it won't have access to the food, water, land, and resources of upstate, so the cost of living in NYC and the greater metropolitan area will become even more prohibitively expensive
4. It looks really fucking stupid, like a retarded drawing of a pentagon with an erection
The shape has nothing to do with whether its beneficial or not. And, you do realize that downstate would still get those commodities, but unlike it us currently, they wouldn't be shafting us, basically stealing it from upstate, and giving us nothing in return for it.
Take the fucking cannonsville reservoir, NYC commissioned the flooding of the town to make way for the city's water supply, and yet the folks living up near there have absolutely nothing for it. And, there's nothing being build or done anywhere close to the reservoir because NYC passed laws prohibiting any sort of logging or commercial gain being done close to the area. How I anyone's right mind is it a good idea for upstaters to give away their natural resources for free to folks living 150+ miles away, and act like they live in a separate state anyway? The least bit that NYS could do would be to compensate people living in upstate for paying for the downstates water, food, taxes, and anything else that's taken from us.
You get a ton of tax money from NYC and the surrounding areas, that's what you get out of it. If you took away all that money, you'd be left with one of the poorest states in the country. It'd become a shithole with no real infrastructure, like one of those crappy Southern or Midwestern states where all the drinking water has lead in it. And yes, of course the people downstate would still be getting those commodities. They'd just have to pay more for them, which would really suck because things are expensive enough down there already. Everyone would be worse off.
>and act like they live in a separate state anyway?
Who fucking cares? This is about as relevant as the shape of the state
I wonder if upstate would be ruined by all those dumb rednecks who think fracking is a good idea
Parts of upstate are already West Virginia tier, imagine how it would be without that NYC revenue
Almost scary to see Forest Hills here since it's the upper middle class/rich part of Queens.
Anyway, looking to clean chat only, maybe about restaurants and such. I am in Queens myself, 28/f. Snap is xbyneptune
Page 10 now?
For shame New York. For shame
18/f in 631. Only If you're young looking, attractive, and kinda fresh looking, gold chain/one diamond earring/snap back type shit hit me up. You have to be close and 20 or under. Respond with kik and maybe a pic. <3 Long Island boys
You do realize that the tax money is seen as pretty much nothing to those who lost their homes when they built the reservoirs, not to mention the flooding, and constant threat of flooding due to the reservoir. When was the last time that you traveled around one? The city does the bare minimum for maintenance on the roads, despite that being part of the deal mind you, and continues to use the DEP outside of their jurisdiction.
You're implying that the price for said goods and water would go up while simultaneously saying that the tax we get is killing you. You do know that the price of food and such would lead to the people making it, getting more money for their work right, as well as you no longer paying tax to upstate.
Wow ad hominem much?

21, M, 718/Brooklyn. Always looking for a nice woman to get to know, but also interested in bro friends.
More specifically looking for people down with the alt right movement, because I feel so isolated from everyone else around here.
Kik is PerfectlyCalm
Looking for LI/NYC folks.
Down to travel if need and down to do just about anything. Drinking, playing vidya, or even just going to see a movie or show. I'll do whatever.
What's a good bar to visit in NYC if you've never gone drinking before? I'm probably gonna spend the night out alone in a few weeks and might as well take the plunge.
its really relaxed. like they sell 3 dollar pbr's and genese beer. they have a shot wheel where you pay 5 bucks and the bartenders spin it to see where you land and you have to do/drink whatever it says on the wheel.
its kind of really guy-ish though. thats all i wanna say i dont want to spoil the rest haha
