If you can't beat'm...

If you can't beat'm....
MOVE to JERSEY CITY !!
seriously...
How much more sludge, ice, garbage, traffic, and general ""UGH"" do we need to endure ??
..before we finally declare triumphantly,
 "I"VE HAD IT !!" ?
In this particular metropolis which I have the extreme DIS pleasure of inhabiting......
There are...
ya ready ??
800 MILLION+  RATS just beneath the streets !!!
Piles of weeks old Garbage COVERING the once-beautiful, tree lined avenues...
People in HOARDS exiting the subways with generally MISERABLE MUGS on....
a MAYOR who REALLY DOESN'T GIVE A SHIT !
Policemen meeting ticket QUOTAS in true "NAZI esque" fashion...
CRIME...
and DIRT...
and STEAM rising up from the debrited manholes...
BLAH<<<< BLAH>>>>BLAH>......
and then....
you need only drive THROUGH THE HOLLAND TUNNEL...(5 minutes literally)...
and as if it were a TWILIGHT ZONE moment...
you land on the "other side"...
and there are..
CHILDREN LAUGHING and playing on the beautifully manicured streets...
GORGEOUS PENTHOUSES for HALF the price !!
FABULOUS restaurants and cafes...
and GENERAL GLORY !!
and you wonder, scratching your head,
"WHY DID THIS TAKE SO LONG TO REALIZE ?"
and you pack up those ridiculously valuable trinkets
 which you've acquired over a lifetime's sojourn...
AND YOU HEAD OUT !!
FEET FIRST !!
And the rest, my friends, REMAINS TO BE SEEN !!
