usedHONDA Posted May 29, 2007 Share Posted May 29, 2007 I finally came back after a 6 day vacation to New York. I originally came for a wedding, but I thought it would be cool to make a real vacation out of it. It was much different from what I expected. It is the most ghetto place I have ever gone to. More ghetto than anyplace I've gone to in Orlando (and Orlando has the worst crime rate in the country). More ghetto than what I've seen in Manhattan. That place is so poor that Wal-Mart went out of business! It's so poor that the condemned buildings were being looted out! It's so poor that the casino has been loosing business! It's so poor that the fast food joints were boarded up! It's so poor that the Adult Movie store went out of business! It's so p-- I guess I should stop with my wise-cracks, shouldn't I? But most of that is still true. I never saw a Wal-Mart, over 40% of the houses and buildings were abandoned, half of the fast food places went out of business (and still not demolished), and same thing with the "Adult Movies" store. Here's some more info: The population is over 60% Indian, I had the most expensive car within 10 miles (07 Saturn AURA; $20K), whenever you get lost you always end up at an abandoned store called "Betty" (I think it's cursed), and everybody looks at you when you drive by a specific run-down Indian restaurant called "the Taste of Southern Asia". Miscellaneous funny happenings: I found some spare car keys in the trunk of my rental I got a fortune cookie that said "You will get what you want with your charming personality" (I'll upload a picture of it later) I was one of 4 people that was staying in the hotel (and it's one of the most popular) Some numbers: 6 days $1200+ out of my pocket 29.4 MPG (I love that rental!) 150+ miles $3.189 per gallon for gas 50-something TV channels 500 condemned buildings 3290184.3 Indians (from India) 0 computers 7.2MP camera on manual mode 2 SD cards (an old 128MB and a half-full 1GB) 600+ pictures 10 AA alkaline batteries 0KB spared :twisted: Pictures coming soon (I won't be in them)!
