We keep seeing posts how the UWS in particular and NYC in general is declining. But does anyone here live outside of the UWS and just... not agree? I'm in the West Village and while obviously things are *much* different than before, the overall "feeling" is... just fine? People are walking around, restaurants are delivering, the parks are still great, I haven't seen one homeless person shit and/or spit on me... It's definitely quieter but I don't feel like I'm living in the apocalypse. Is it just my neighborhood?
