    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

    He's basically enacted a catch and release policy, where no one is held accountable. I think he's arguably the worst mayor this city has ever seen.

    I do not think that there is anything arguable about it. I do not care if you lean left or right, it is impossible not to see what is going on in NYC right now.

    The other day, saw a group of teenagers biking/skating. Suddenly one of them took what looked to be a coffee cup and just threw the contents at someone wearing a suit, yelling the usual racial obscenities that you might imagine come along with that.

    Last time I was there in November, just didn't feel as safe as I have ever since the mid-90's. It just seems like it's getting worse. It's becoming Dinkins era bad.

    That said, Charlotte is getting to be per capita even worse crime wise than NYC. Similar policies, similar politics.

    I just spent 4 days visiting my family & the city looks like it's regressed to pre-Giuliani type filth. Penn Station was full of homeless sleeping on the floors, which was never tolerated in the mid 90s-late 2000s before I left. While having a couple of slices at Joe's, there was a dude harassing people for spare change while they were eating inside the store. The employees at Joe's didn't notice or didn't care & that's a separate issue, but the fact the this dude was so bold is telling. Living thru the 70s, 80s & early 90s the city was in rough shape, but I've never saw begging done inside establishments.

    Walking around downtown from the LES to the Meatpacking District, I don't think I saw any police presence at all. Same in Penn after the Ranger game on Saturday night. Kinda scary considering how overcrowded the city feels.

    The previous day I took my GF into Queens to show her my old neighborhoods of Bayside & Flushing. I honestly thought I was driving in a 3rd world country. It's absolutely sickening what happened/is still happening to that area. Single family houses torn down so 3-4 family homes could be built in their place extending from property line to property line. Traffic is a giant mess & there's absolutely no place to park anywhere. Everything looks disheveled, overcrowded & just dirty. Growing up & even well into my mid 30's, Northeast Queens always resembled Nassau County more than it did the rest of the borough, the Bronx or Brooklyn. Not anymore.

    On a positive note, Saturday was my first time at MSG since the renovation was completed. Last time I was there was opening night in 2011 when they had only completed the lower bowl redesign. Inside, other than the iconic ceiling & the location of the entrance towers, the building is completely unrecognizable. The sight-lines are fantastic, the amount of restrooms, bars, etc is terrific. I have seasons for the VGK here at TMobile Arena, & MSG blows it away. The best part is the pedestrian traffic that used to obstruct viewing has obviously been eliminated. Nothing worse than having seats in the old Orange/Yellows or Greens & having people walk past you the entire game blocking your view. I'm really jealous that the building didn't look like this when I was going to hundreds of games back in the 80s, 90s & 2000s.

    Di Blasio is trash but the city is undeniably a safer and better place than it ever has been on the whole. LOFL at comparing current day to Dinkins

    And building multifamily properties is not sickening, we need more of it and more high density living in general.

    More housing units are needed for the people that already live here.

    So that makes it a good idea to mutilate existing neighborhoods?

    Regardless, this discussion is moot. The soul of Bayside, Fresh Meadows & East Flushing has been permanently torn out.

    Yes, but that has nothing to do with Di Blasio and everything to do with his predecessors.

    And frankly since the idiocy of his bail reform, the numbers are going the other way. And not in a good way.

    You know, Blasio got his start in the Dinkins administration. In fact, one his first acts in office as mayor was to rename the municipal building after Dinkins.

    But no, De Blasio is not Dinkins - he is John Lindsay.

    He is horrendous. An absolute disaster. And so too his his wife. And she is trying to run for office as well. And will probably get elected.

    I actually got into it with her once, her car almost ran me over in the crosswalk at Broadway and Reade when she cleared the box. She tried to tell me off when I was walking on the green, she's a real piece of work. She literally burned one BILLION dollars on her personal "thrive" mental health initiative which basically vanished and nobody knows where the money went

    One of the worse disgraces. Blew the money has no metrics to be able to show results and cannot account for one penny.
