Times Square becoming worst place on earth
NY Post ^ | July 13, 2014 | Michael Gartland and Stephanie Pagones

Posted on 07/13/2014 8:29:40 AM PDT by BlueStateRightist

It’s called the Crossroads of the World, but these days it’s the Worst Place on Earth. Traffic, tourists, construction, commuters and a seemingly endless array of cartoon characters, nudists and hawkers, add up to a nightmare on the Great White Way.

Anarchical anything goes. Just the way DiBlasio likes it.

Look up anarcho-tyranny. That’s the way Obama likes it>>>>>>>

Anarcho-tyranny

Francis argued that the problems of the managerial state extend to issues of crime and justice. In 1992, he introduced the word “anarcho-tyranny” into the paleocon vocabulary.[38] He once defined it this way: “we refuse to control real criminals (that’s the anarchy) so we control the innocent (that’s the tyranny).”[39]

In one of his last essays, he explained the concept:

What we have in this country today, then, is both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws) and, at the same time, tyranny – the enforcement of laws by the state for oppressive purposes; the criminalization of the law-abiding and innocent through exorbitant taxation, bureaucratic regulation, the invasion of privacy, and the engineering of social institutions, such as the family and local schools; the imposition of thought control through “sensitivity training” and multiculturalist curricula, “hate crime” laws, gun-control laws that punish or disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens but have no impact on violent criminals who get guns illegally, and a vast labyrinth of other measures. In a word, anarcho-tyranny.[38]

They wanted DeBlasio, the Marxist.
I hope they get it good.
Looks like the change they wanted is bearing fruit.

Getting what they voted for, and it’ll get a whole lot worse. I worked in that Midtown mess for a long time. Glad I moved away from the craphole 25yrs ago.

They’ll certainly pay for the DiBlasio vote, but this actually started under Bloomberg, who closed some streets in the center of Times Square to deal with the crowds and make it more of a walking-mall type destination for the tourists. The aggressive cartoon characters overran the place before DiBlasio was sworn in.

It is now a horrendous experience to walk or drive through.

I agree. The current state of Times Square with its ever increasing violence is a good thing. Perhaps SOME of the left will wake up. Perhaps enough to swing elections back to producing livable results.

I remember when Times Square was full of porn shops, and drug dealers were standing in long lines along the walls hawking their wares...

Overrated, expensive, cluttered, glitzy on crud stained concrete-—a morass of foreigners gawking after vapid midtown vanities of little lasting value.
They can have it...pony up the cash suckers as NYC drills deep into the multi-diverse wallets as a univeral equality of extortions.

After I got married I took my wife to NYC for her first visit. She was born and raised in Rochester.
While driving thru the Times Sq area for the third or fourth time my wife asks me,"Why are there so many women standing in the doorways ... it's not raining?"
I said they were waiting for the bus. She followed that up with - "I'm seeing the same women over and over. What time does the bus come?"

I used to walk to get places in NYC, but with all the smokers flushed out on to the sidewalks from the non-smoking buildings, my clothes would have holes burnt in them, my lungs would ache, and I would smell like an ashtray by the time I got to my clients.

Times Square was impenetrable.

I tried the subways, but they were slow, and only got me part way. I tried taxis, but there was no place to put my feet.

I gave up and let that market go. I don’t go in to NYC, or D.C. They are crap holes.

Leftists do not wake up. They get mugged and lose their la la land myopia.

Hah seems like a perfect scene for an alien movie where they walk thru this area and go unnoticed. Did I miss this movie already?

If Bloomberg weren’t a crazy in so many ways, like restricting the size of soda containers, would the next-election result have been as extreme as DeBlasio is?

The idiots were gorging on Obama and obviously wanted more. Bloomberg was a stepping stone.

No, they'll just move away from NY to Florida and bring their failed liberal ideology with them.

Loony liberals prefer the porno, sex shows, and grindhouse violent cinemas of the 70s and 80s to the “crass commercialism and capitalism” of the “Disneyfied” Times Square.

As if selling sex and violence wasn’t crass capitalism.
