    I have to be in the city early Friday morning for a meeting, so I'm looking to rent a hotel Thursday night. Anyone got any non-gross hotel recommendations they can give ?

    My meeting is on Wall Street but I'm game to stay pretty much anywhere from MSG down

    There are plenty of decent places downtown so my suggestion is to stay near your meeting place to avoid any potential problems.

    Back to pizza for a second. I finally made it to Roberta's on Sat. Believe the hype regarding the pizza.

    Last minute question: I'm visiting NY with my wife and we're both Habs fans. Can someone guide us to a sports bar (preferably cheap due to our budget) where they'd show tonight's game against Arizona? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Good luck in the rest of the season! Have Panarin and Zibanejad in my hockey pool.

    Plug Uglies on 3rd. Have not been there in a number of years, however.

    I swear getting a seat in the dining hall by The Garden is an impossible feat whenever there's any form of a game on. Here's to having a girlfriend who loves the Cinnamon Snail there

    Is Gerry Crosby's closing? My wife is back to work and walked by today and said the place is all packed up...

    Not sure. But there will be many places that do not reopen. I have seen and read on the store fronts already. Shame

    Well, the Pandemic accelerated the trends already seen in New York City regarding retail space that we've been discussing here... High rents, coupled with low margins on sales means it's tough to make a living doing retail. If you are a bar / restaurant in Manhattan, you've pretty much just lost all your foot traffic (no office workers; no tourists) for a year. An increase in the minimum wage for staff doesn't help the bottom line.

    I expect a lot of empty store fronts when I start making regular trips back to the City.

    I think we won't really know the fall-out from Covid for a few years. I expect commercial real estate to take a pounding.

    NY is an absolute mess right now. So little of it is being reported in the media right now. No matter what side of the fence you are on, it's actually baffeling to me that some of what has transpired is NOT headline news. What is being reported? Anything that fits the agenda of either political party.

    Forget about Covid19. Good luck to anyone not traveling in a group to go to a game, a broadway play, etc. NY has regressed to how it was in the 70's. It's disgusting!

    If you are still a New Yorker, be safe out there, and be very careful of your surroundings. That is the new reality.

    Yep, I spoke about this when I visited in March. The condition of the city is shocking compared to the mid 90s - early 2010s.

    Not really sure how it can rebound from it either.

    From a Real Estate Standpoint, the surrounding areas are lit up like a Christmas tree. Long Island in one hotspot. Westchester another. The Hudson Valley is likely next. Long Island happens to have a fairly large population of people that have already reached retirement age of 62 years old. I believe it's approx 28% of the homeowners in both Nassau and Suffolk. For everyone of those people that want to get out of New York, is another person that wants to buy and get out of the Boroughs or Manhattan. Same for Westchester. If anyone planned on retiring down South, your window is closing. Prop Values are going to surge with the amount of people exiting NY. Where will this leave Manhattan and the Boroughs? The Residential Property Values are going to tank. The Commercial Value's which were among the highest in the World are going to be available for penny's on the dollar. Restaurants, are going to be few and far between. Who will be joining GYM's now? And where does it leave the Sports teams? I hate to say it, but who is going to buy season tickets right now to the Rangers?

    I have worked in the East village for the last few days, Its a free for all in some spots. Watched several business just randomly get tossed over. Many just closed and plywooded up. The old Jewish kinish place was closed to the public and only doing online orders. Appears that it was broken into and vandalized

    People on the street are doing whatever they want right now, nobody is going to stop them and they know it. I wouldn't recommend intervening either, you're very likely to get punched at a minimum or beaten, and at worst stabbed or shot.

    We're in zombie world, need that COVID vaccine so people can come back and restore order

    Sorry. I’m not into compelling. I’m into the actual every day.

    Then you will probably find the 10 people shot last night, or the 11 year old the other, or the would be college freshman the other, or the baby that was slashed in a stroller fairly actual. Whether that is enough for you to be compelled is entirely up to you.

    As is the pure amount of shootings when compared to last year. Compelling? Who knows. Actual? Does not get much more so.
