Viagra seizures The Good Old Days

Viagra seizures To say Ed Koch was the quintessential New Yorker would be a huge understatement. Viagra seizures Everything about Koch was New York, viagra seizures his accent, viagra seizures his brashness and his combative style all New York. Viagra seizures Sadly those of us of certain age see that kind of New Yorker fading away.

Viagra seizures The New York of the Koch era was one of the most exciting times the city ever witnessed, viagra seizures good and bad. Viagra seizures I was 20 years old when Koch took office, viagra seizures working for Salomon Brothers a pretty big financial institution at the time, viagra seizures headed by a flashy trader named Mike Bloomberg, viagra seizures in fact I worked in the computer room at 1 NY Plaza. Viagra seizures On some weekends I’d come in to do an overtime shift where I’d stay out all night, viagra seizures mostly in the East Village at Max’s Kansas City, viagra seizures and head to work and grab a two hour nap on some big executives leather couch until one of my shift mates would wake me up, viagra seizures but I digress. Viagra seizures The Koch Era was the last of the gritty, viagra seizures nasty days of New York. Viagra seizures I’m just glad I grew up then.

Viagra seizures I laugh when I see folks get on the subway and anoint themselves with loads of hand sanitizer, viagra seizures I think of the days of subway trains decked out in graffiti and who knows what else. Viagra seizures With all the uproar over gun control and curbing of violence, viagra seizures how about growing up in an age where 2, viagra seizures000 murders were the norm and riding the subway after 10PM meant you had better be armed with some sort of weapon to survive the trip. Viagra seizures I get a real kick out of going to Time Square with my kids to go to the theater and look around at the Disney-facation of the area. Viagra seizures It’s kind of hard to articulate this without sounding like a complete asshole, viagra seizures but I do miss a lot of the nastiness and out right debauchery of the old 40 Duce.

Viagra seizures I guess it’s because there were no big wave of tourists coming to see the sites and the neighborhoods were still full of neighborhood people. Viagra seizures I grew up on a block in Brooklyn where everyone on the block knew everyone. Viagra seizures During the summer you could hear the TV’s blasting Mets games and Highlander games on to the streets with the familiar cry of “Yo Whad’s da Score??? “ . Viagra seizures The moms and grandmas would take their folding chairs outside to sit in front of the house or under a tree after the chores of the day were done. Viagra seizures Kids played in the street all day and night. Viagra seizures That was New York. Viagra seizures That was the New York that Ed Koch governed and governed so well because he was one of us. Viagra seizures Koch would tell a heckler to “shut the hell up” and it was fine because hey that’s what we do, viagra seizures when Bloomberg does it, viagra seizures we say, viagra seizures “look at this little pampered prick, viagra seizures who does he think he is”? It’s not just the fact that Bloomy is out of touch with his constituents because he’s a rich guy, viagra seizures it’s also because he’s not one of us, viagra seizures he wasn’t born here didn’t grow up here and that makes all the difference.

Viagra seizures I think about all the hot dogs and orangeades I devoured as kid at the stand at the 42 St Subway station while transferring  from the Sea Beach line (N train) to the IRT Flushing Line (7 train) to  get to Wiilets Pt/Shea Stadium. Viagra seizures I doubt that stand would have gotten an “A” rating back then. Viagra seizures Same with Dave’s Luncheonette that was on Canal and Broadway where you could get a hot dog in a natural casing (great crunch) a knish and a chocolate egg cream at 3 in the morning. Viagra seizures That’s all gone and sadly a whole generation has missed out on what gives New Yorkers such a hard shell.

Viagra seizures Sorry for the old guy trip down memory lane but with Ed Koch passing away yesterday it just conjured up so many memories of the era where this city was unruly and imaginative, viagra seizures filthy and cutting edge, viagra seizures menacing and remarkable. Viagra seizures Just like Ed Koch I am and always will be a proud New Yorker.
