Viagra premature The Good Old Days

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

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

Viagra premature I laugh when I see folks get on the subway and anoint themselves with loads of hand sanitizer, viagra premature I think of the days of subway trains decked out in graffiti and who knows what else. Viagra premature With all the uproar over gun control and curbing of violence, viagra premature how about growing up in an age where 2, viagra premature000 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 premature 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 premature It’s kind of hard to articulate this without sounding like a complete asshole, viagra premature but I do miss a lot of the nastiness and out right debauchery of the old 40 Duce.

Viagra premature 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 premature I grew up on a block in Brooklyn where everyone on the block knew everyone. Viagra premature 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 premature 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 premature Kids played in the street all day and night. Viagra premature That was New York. Viagra premature That was the New York that Ed Koch governed and governed so well because he was one of us. Viagra premature Koch would tell a heckler to “shut the hell up” and it was fine because hey that’s what we do, viagra premature when Bloomberg does it, viagra premature we say, viagra premature “look at this little pampered prick, viagra premature 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 premature it’s also because he’s not one of us, viagra premature he wasn’t born here didn’t grow up here and that makes all the difference.

Viagra premature 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 premature I doubt that stand would have gotten an “A” rating back then. Viagra premature 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 premature That’s all gone and sadly a whole generation has missed out on what gives New Yorkers such a hard shell.

Viagra premature 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 premature filthy and cutting edge, viagra premature menacing and remarkable. Viagra premature Just like Ed Koch I am and always will be a proud New Yorker.
