Brooklyn is the new Manhattan. Essentially all of the young people are moving there because Manhattan is so expensive. There are a lot of great new places and restaurants opening there, so it's a really nice area.

I don't know anything about projects in other areas though. I imagine like most things in the city, they aren't easy to get in to either.

So where are the very bad neighborhoods in NYC today? Most of the Bronx, I'd presume, is still awful, though I know nice enclaves like riverdale exist. Hard to picture northeast Brooklyn as not scary, but again, my info is very out of date.  Have the scaries all fled to Newark and East Orange or what?

East Harlem, Washington heights, the Bronx, etc are still sketchy. But places like Greenwich village have a lot of crime too, mostly theft and property crime. Midtown is the same way. I don't know Brooklyn crime wise. I had a friend who lived there this summer and didn't have any trouble though. NYC is a pretty safe place generally for a big city.

If they would offer $11.04 an hour for the same job at the Salt Lake City International Airport, a western Delta hub, I would jump on it without question.  For now, though, I think I am better off doing what I'm doing now.  I still want to talk to the recruiter, though.

Working at Xerox right now until I find something better and more stable.

Bushie's moving to New York? This could be movie of the series.

Extremely doubtful, unless Delta Air Lines offers way north of $11.  I would probably require at least $17-$18 to make that big of a move especially just 4 1/2 or 5 months after I moved from Oklahoma to Utah.

This is no less ridiculous.

I don't think someone like you should be presented with an alternative... stay away from temptation.

How so?  New York City is not a cheap place to live.  $17 may even be on the lower end of comfortable living in NYC, no?

$17/hour in NYC is equivalent to about $10.68/hour in Salt Lake City.

Sheesh, I'd have to make well over $50k/year to get the equivalent of my current income in NYC. And apparentely Minneapolis and Salt Lake City are almost equivalent, with SLC being very marginally more expensive.

Exactly my point.  That is the lowest I would ever think about accepting in New York City or Los Angeles or one of the other major cities.  I would really like to have at least $20/hour to go to the Northeast.

If you want a really big city, then you should go to Chicago, which is really f**king cheap. In fact it's cheaper than SLC.

Many and most of the housing projects in NYC you aspire to get out of. There are waitlist for these things because  some of the newer ones haven't gone to crap yet and a deluge of hipster hayseeds want to pretend to be a New Yorker for a while and drive up rents for poor, working people.

NY is much safer now and Ill roll through neighborhoods I wouldnt have dreamt of venturing into 15-20 years ago. However, there are still some very rough neighborhoods. East New York,Brownsville, Flatbush, Queensbridge, South Jamaica, a few of the Rockaway ones and vast swaths of the Bronx. In Manhattan a couple of the projects down in Lower East side are rough and crime riddle projects around Washington heights, Harlem up north.

Basically look at the NYC murder map put out by NYtimes a few years back and worst areas are always around the projects.

I'm not real crazy about Chicago, especially with high number of homicides in the city.

You're white and not a drug dealer, so that shouldn't be a worry.

Why are you telling yourself you still work there?  When was the st day you worked?  How many hours did you work last week?

I last worked on Thursday.  I got 32 hours last week.  I'm confident I'll get 40 hours this week as they are expecting it to be a little busier this week.

I am going to give Xerox the rest of January to produce 40 hour weeks (through February 1).  If I have not worked 120 hours between now and 13:30 2/1/2013, I will start looking again.  As I mentioned earlier, we are getting further removed from the Holidays, so things should pick up.

I just took a drive into the east benches of the Salt Lake Valley into a town called Cottonwood Heights.  It was striking to me that I only had to drive 4 to 5 miles east of my apartments to get into the benches.  In fact, the Walmart I shop at generally is in the bottom end of the bench.  That was very surprising to me.  My apartment sits near the low point between the Wasatch and the Oquirrh Mountains to my west.
