I think it will be years and years and years before NYC comes back. Without all the hustle and bustle, the people who once lived there will no longer have an interest. There will continue to be a movement out of NYC. Why pay exorbitant cost of living rates for nothing? DeBlasio screwed up so badly in the long term health of his city.
It’s a phenomenal thing to witness in the short term, and enormously painful and vexing to speculate about in the long term-—but those are the facts, and all the Dem chickens finally came home to roost, and it’s their doing that they DESTROYED one of the world’s great cities. It has no appeal EVEN FOR TOURISTS> there is no way Governor and Mayor can ever bring it back because they don’t even recognize that they killed it.
