Earlier today I surfed by the Inwoodite, an online spot for news in my hood, and found out that first, gunfire must be a lot more common in my neighborhood that I thought. And second, that like, Inwood is like “3 steps more ghetto than Harlem ever was.” (see number 43)
I guess my moving checklist back in January should now be expanded to five items.
- Stay in Manhattan. -Check.
- Find, at least, a 10 by 12 foot space to rent. -Check
- That won’t leave me broke at the end of the year. -Semi-check.
- Dump roommates. -Check.
- Move to ghetto. -Check.
4.5 out of 5. Not too shabby, if I say so myself.
On a side note, it took me 2 hours and 15 minutes to ride the F and A trains home from Coney Island on Saturday night… On a brighter note, Mermaid Parade photos coming soon, stay tuned. :)
