We’ll admit, we sort of enjoy it when Andrew Sullivan freaks out.
Last week, the beardy gay uncle of the blogosphere vented about his move from DC to New York:
Just to walk a few blocks requires barging your way through a melee of noise and rudeness and madness. And a glance at your bank account shows a giant sucking sound as the city effectively robs you of all your pennies at every juncture. When you’re there for a few days or a week, it can be bracing. But living with this as a daily fact of life? How does anyone manage it?
DCist has mourned Sully’s departure from The Diner in Adams Morgan.
Sullivan’s readers, meanwhile, have been of two camps: those that propose Andrew move to Brooklyn on account of all the walkability and beards, and those who say Manhattan is unfairly maligned. And because New Yorkers like nothing more than sharing their opinions, Andrew has also rounded up New Yorkers’ practical feedback to his initial post.
Wonkistan has been vocal about its support of DC, but we didn’t realize New York needed defending! Amanda, a resident of Manhattan, enjoys weekend trips to Brooklyn but would like to state for the record that her borough is freakin’ great. It did take her an hour to commute ninety blocks to work this morning, and her wifi is slower than can be believed, but for now she’s sticking with this glorious little island.
