*Everyday Chatter

The battle of the food fetishists vs. the leather fetishists continues--as wholesome "family" entertainment claims Meatpacking. [Villager]

At a Fashion Week event, what happens when you put baby yunnies in the front row--"They were told three times to stop slouching, stop texting and stop making phone calls." [Awl]

Literature dies at a book party for "twitter wit." [NYP]

Hashing: Where jerks run around the Lower East Side in a "never-ending quest for beer, food, good times and beer." [EVG]

...After all that, if you're still not convinced the city is in the shitter, save the date on 9/28: Don't miss the third installment of Vanishing City at Dixon Place, complete with Bowery visuals and live cabaret. [DP]

I don't need anymore convincing that this city is in the shitter, but after this thread if there's anyone with any doubts, those should now "vanish". NYC is dead.

Nice to know someone feels the same.
I used to think it was just me, but I've gone past that point. It just has to be an objective reality, not an opinion. How can anyone walk around, or look at what's happened, and not see it or feel it? The shallowness, and the sheer hollowness just echoes everywhere I go.
