i sure know how to pick 'em!

Places to live, that is . . .

First up, we have South Williamsburg, where I lived from Summer 06 to Winter 07. And where people were and still are stabbed on a regular basis. And where groups of thugs will shoot a young guy they don't know in the face. I actually feel lucky that the worst that happened to me was forced-entry burglary.

And now, my current nabe, Clinton Hill. I haven't been mugged yet (yeah I'm a bit of a pessimist), but a couple months ago I witnessed some kids chase a guy riding his bicycle and chuck a basketball at him to knock him off and presumably steal his shit.

Aaaaand, now I'm going to put a large wad of cash in my wallet and head up to Williamsburg for a haircut. Wish me luck!
