We were in Manhattan 4 days end of April, 5 days end of May 2021.
The graffiti, the garbage, the beggars, the number of absolute crazy ……., all from one group. On our last day there, Memorial Day, we came across a guy (totally crazy, 1st wite guy) that we crossed the street to avoid. I would have walked holding Charles Manson’s hand then dealing with this guy. De Blasio should be arrested and taken to court for the crimes he has committed against NY and its citizens.

Here’s a thought – maybe the people should quit putting Democrats in charge!! From the Governor’s office to the NYC Mayor – QUIT VOTING DEMOCRAT!!!

The last time NYC was moving in the right direction, Giulliani was running the show. With morons like DeBlasio, it will continue to get worse. I guess Dem voters have to have a loved one killed by Dem policies before they learn the truth.
