Thread: Give Us Back New York!

    Angry Give Us Back New York!

    For over 200 years, we’ve watched our proud city evolve the wrong way. But the bell has chimed! The time has come for New York to be returned to its righteous owner: The Netherlands!



    Thank you for your co-operation.

    In theory I like these IDEAS (but if the summertime stench of garbage on NYC sidewalks is any indication of what we'd have to look forward to then this plan will need a LOT of re-thinking -- Anyone been to Venice in August ???) ...

    Wallstreet - was never meant to be a street:



    Times Square, now reachable by boat and filled with authentic Amsterdam canal water,
    nutrified by stoned British tourists since decades - how sweet would not the scent...



    eh, nevermind ...

    The Dutch guys sent me one of those teeshirts. I must say - most of their ideas sound great, especially about canals.

    Hey, if the Dutch took over things here, then maybe they could build a brand new Zuider Zee across Long Island Sound. Then, I could get to and from Connecticut a lot easier. Cool.
