Is it time to leave New York? It seems NYC is done for. Only getting worse by the day with a mayor who encourages and defends chaos caused by hate groups and criminals. What is the foreseeable future of this city and is it better to try to relocate as many are doing currently?June 21, 2020 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #1874975
Just like giuliani came after dinkins I wouldn’t be surprised if a exceptionally good right wing mayor will come after deblasioJune 22, 2020 12:02 am at 12:02 am #1874979SchnitzelBigotParticipant
What chaos? And history never repeats itself, regardless.June 22, 2020 12:04 am at 12:04 am #18749821Participant
All the white voters left NYC. All that’s left are unions gentrifying communists and blacks.June 22, 2020 12:04 am at 12:04 am #1874980som1Participant
it was time to leave long agoJune 22, 2020 12:04 am at 12:04 am #1874981JosephParticipant
Dinkins was a historic disaster. Dinkins makes de Blasio look like a saint.
The old Italian and Irish families moved out of New York as the criminal elements were moving in. That vote is now long gone.June 22, 2020 10:48 am at 10:48 am #1875073Someone in MonseyParticipant
Having left NYC several years ago, I can certainly urge it in the affirmative. However, then the question becomes, where to? If you rightly perceive the collapse of NY’s structure, what do you do in the face of the widespread chaos of the past few weeks? Seems like it’s either Israel or Idaho. Will you be happy in Idaho? Obviously, there are more choices than just Idaho. My point is that, at this juncture in history, making aliyah might be the best possible (perhaps only) move, assuming it’s right for you. The reality is that any other move is just a short term solution, especially with the ongoing degradation in Western society in general. Be bold.June 22, 2020 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #1875137HealthParticipant

Right Now Israel is Not better than the US. The Chilonim have No MORALS At All, while the Xitans in the
US have Some! I can’t understand every Time something Bad happens here the Zionists come out.June 22, 2020 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #18752291Participant
Health America also doesn’t have the righteous people that Israel does. Stop hating. It’s not healthy.June 22, 2020 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #1875260GadolhadorahParticipant
New York’s demise has been predicted on multiple occasions, only to see it rebound. Each time they say “its over” but I have no reason to believe it will be much different this time around. New York will be back in a year or two (likely with new political leadership) but sadly neither the Knicks or the Mets seem to have much a future.June 22, 2020 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #1875289

-I think Curtis Sliwa of the Guardian Angels and Radio Host is running for MayorJune 22, 2020 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #1875336Someone in MonseyParticipant
Health, #1, I’m no Zionist. Living in Eretz Yisroel, or being positive about the concept, is not necessarily Zionistic. There is a little something called the Torah, which has a little something to do with Eretz Yisroel. #2, you note that I said, “if it’s right for [him].” Odd that you don’t grasp that that’s clearly a suggestion, nothing more. #3, if EY is so imperfect, how do Torah Yidden manage to survive there? Obviously, the medina is not to be trusted, but be serious – there is a huge Torah population that lives as best they can, just like here.June 22, 2020 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #1875372
Sliwa is a joke for mayor
He’ll lose in the primary
And anyways his boss Catsimitedes is running alsoJune 22, 2020 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #1875378JosephParticipant
We need another William F. Buckley Jr.June 23, 2020 9:10 am at 9:10 am #1875455akupermaParticipant
It is possible that Covid19 will seriously weaken the attraction of large cities. First, the biggest risk factor for Covid19, other than being old, is urban living. Second, the “lockdowns” demonstrate the advantages of teleworking and distance education, so we can expect more resources to be invested in industries that telework (and for sponsoring companies to move to states that do not tax non-resident teleworkers) which will seriously hurt big cities, and especially New York City, whose economy is based on industries that can easily go entirely online, thereby avoiding New York’s high taxes and high rents.
