as much as i bitch and moan about the lack of in-unit laundry or having to haul my groceries home with me on the subway, having had the opportunity to live in this city these last few years has been pretty fantastic. i’m going to miss it a lot.
Manhattan is a city divided by power: uptown thrives and strengthens on electricity and wifi and artisanal cheese, while downtown grows meaner and leaner with each passing day in the dark. There are 1.6 million coexisting on 23 square miles with a clear, dangerous divide between them, and power likely won’t return until the weekend. The center cannot hold. Chaos is imminent. And so we ask: Who will win the inevitable Uptown-Down Civil War of 2012?
i love the graphic. can’t we all just get along?
