My new/former neighborhood is on here but there’s no way that the median income is what they say it is.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Little Italy but I wouldn’t live there. Rent is crazy expensive, parking sucks, and they really fail to mention that while you’re paying $1000 a month for your studio you are directly in the flight path for the airport that is literally next door. The descending planes look like they are mere feet above your roof.
There are better neighborhoods here
Their recommendation in SF is Cow Hollow
“The median rent in Cow Hollow is $1,344, with residents averaging a median income of $36,119.”
and if you can do basic math, you’ll know this leaves you exactly $3 for the MAC pro store in the neighborhood, but fortunately the bars are teeming with young IT douchebros who will want to get you wasted!
literally everyone I know in SF hates Cow Hollow.
Most people in Chicago feel negative good about Wicker Park.
You will literally spend half as much in rent in pretty much every neighborhood* in Philadelphia.
(*Sans Center City. And Old City. But that’s all. East Passyunk? Check. Fishtown? Check. NoLibs? Check.)
As a Chicagoan, IF Reckless Records and SubT moved out of Wicker Park I would never set foot in that neighborhood again. It’s the bleached asshole of Chicago. (I am pretty sure I stole that from somewhere).
Greenpoint is #1!! But fuck the Girls connection. Probably the reason my rent is $200 more expensive for a smaller place than it was when I lived on the same block that they “live” on.
How is Clarendon even 500 miles within a list like this?
Mandatory Record Store Day prep.
“As of the 2010 census, the United States consists of 11,078,300 Census Blocks. Of them, 4,871,270 blocks totaling 4.61 million square kilometers were reported to have no population living inside them. Despite having a population of more than 310 million people, 47 percent of the USA remains unoccupied.
Green shading indicates unoccupied Census Blocks. A single inhabitant is enough to omit a block from shading.”
I’ve definitely done myself a disservice by not discovering Life Without Buildings until today. Record Store Day purchase, here I come!
Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better!
(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)
Smithsonian tackling the fact checks.
— If that hype quote doesn’t summarize what makes the ridiculous nature of comics so appealing, what does?
There’s a little bit of Inspector Norse inside all of us.
*SLOTHS THAT ARE SQUEAKING*.
Maybe it’s a bit more of a bleat? Regardless, this is probably the best sound I could imagine them making.
