so far really really upper and really really lower isnt that hip.  but yes, eventually everywhere in manhattan will be totally unaffordable.  and i cant wait to live there! 

i almost bumped into Joan Allen tonite after I came out of The New World.  there was a mutual 'excuse me' and then she was gone.

i saw DEBRA WILSON when i went to see The New World.

i keep hearing how all these places used to be seedy and are now hip. i don't know anything about neighbourhoods and shit, so what i wanna know is exactly what part of manhattan ISNT hip now? i mean, even if there are parts which aren't hip, surely that only guarrantees they will be in like a year or whatever, right?

that's a good point, and i made a similar comment when i first moved up here.

basically what i've learned is that every neighborhood offers something different, so you could make the argument that one neighborhood is just as "hip" as the next. for example, chelsea is very gaycentric. east village is very college/punk-rock-centric. west village is more of a mix of NYU kids and Wall Street yuppies/sex and the city-girls. i guess it's all a matter of taste.

guess that didn't really answer your question, huh. the two neighborhoods that are undeniably the hippest are the west village and the meatpacking district (especially the latter, which is a perfect example of what was once seedy but now trendy). the non-hip parts-- financial district (post- 9/11 everyone cleared out of there, although there is a wave of ppl moving back and you can still get a really good deal around there), upper east side (where all the old people live), and times square (biggest cluster fuck/tourist trap of the city).

so yes, upper east, times square, and financial district are definitely not the hippest in my book. will they be in a year?

times square-- hell no. it's like disney world and it's probably going to stay that way
upper east - some people love it up there but it just ain't for me.
financial district - possibly. if enough ppl move down there it could be fun. it's probably one of the most beautiful parts of the city. bad thing is you can't find a bar or restaurant open passed 9.

east village. you can still get a decent deal on a apartment that is actually pretty big (for NY standards). plus, it has the highest concentration of great bars and restaurants that are for the most part considerably cheaper than the rest of the city.

She's probably telling her friends she almost bumped into Spike Jonze.

Have you ever met someone famous/NY hipster?

Maybe?
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

I met Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick on Friday night.  They were both in a hurry.

i got to talk to owen gleiberman today. he's a phenomenally cool guy, but i wouldn't be surprised in the least to learn that he hasn't the slightest recollection of my name.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

I met Michael Ian Black at Cornell University last week after he gave a "lecture" which was really basically him doing a solo stand up type deal.  He was really cool and nice, and signed my copy of Wet Hot American Summer.  I'm sort of a huge fan of his and Stella, so it was a lot cooler for me than it sounds.  So cool that i posted about it.

So this is kind of a short question long answer I imagine, but if you get the time, what are the apartment prices like throughout NYC?  Studios, one bedroom, two bedrooms.

Don't link me because I can find that stuff on the Internet.  I'm asking you because you live there and you know what's real right.  Right.

Yeah that thread.  Or he can pm me.  Way interested.

I'll get it back on track by saying that Muhammad Ali lives in Berrien Springs Michigan and I went to college there for a year.  One night I was hanging out in the dorm with some friends and a girl comes back from a gas station (there's like three in the city, it's super small) and says all nonchalant that she saw Ali there.  We head on over hoping that he's still there and he is.

He's with a friend from Kentucky, a real swank red-tanned white guy who's driving Ali around in a blue Mustang, right.  And this is 2002, so Ali's Parkinson's is readily apparent - he doesn't say anything the entire time, walks slow.  It was almost that I wished I hadn't seen him like this you know.  But fuck if he's not awesome.  He's probably as excited that we're excited to see him as we are excited to see him - he poses for pictures, puts our fists against his face and the like.  We're there for twenty minutes or so watching Ali chew bubblegum and take it out of his mouth to show us how big it is, the Kentucky guy going "Hey, look what the Champ's got" when he does this.

It was a weird night.
