An award-winning news site covering the East Village of NYC
Wow, it's that time again. Welcome incoming Freshmen!
Thanks for the warning!
Oh hell, my crocodile moats aren't ready yet!
too bad they can't be handed a list of rules of conduct - like speaking softly, no roof parties, no vomiting in the street, santacon is not an accredited course, pretend to respect your neighbors, etc. etc.
They should just the East Village 'Student Village'. Now I understand why rich people wall themselves off uptown.
Did you kill the Rizzo Pizza story? That's unprecedented, no? You should write a story about it!
The Yearly Plague
I'm sure everyone here was so wonderful and polite when they were 18- rules of conduct? speak softly? are you kidding me? blue glass you really need to get a grip- that is totally ridiculous- maybe integrating them more and being less dismissive might be helpful- how about invites to help with community gardens or helping tutor local schoolkids? but that would be positive and productive- can't have that now can we? perhaps the mayor should make these homeless shelters instead of dorms- would you like that instead?
Thanks; I won't try to go to Trader Joe's for a couple of weeks.
Great, now Seamless can start gouging our local mom and poo shops even more s NYU yunnies fire up their culture of numbness devices.
@ 1:01Wow. I didn't remove the post… I can't find it either — of real. It's just gone.… It had so many good comments too. Ugh. It seems like several other posts are missing too...
“when they were 18- rules of conduct?" That not the problem. As illustrated by the New York magazine article, “The School That Ate New York”, NYU is basically making the EV, the LES, Stuy Town and Peter Cooper a one company town. And that company is NYU. And that is not a good thing.
Yes a plague and only in NYC would this be a.negative. So much hostility.
And NYU students are.not hostile to the neighborhood.3:32 pm must live in this giant condo complex in. the upper floors. that has soundproof. So much self-illusion. Only a NY yunnie in search of fresh.meat to take advantage of with unlimited drinks to timulate his. numbness.
3:32 pm has hijacked the. Rizzo post because it disrupts. his self-delusions.
Self delusions? I just think that its not the end of the world and this hostility is ridiculous. That's all. Maybe you need to look in the mirror. Maybe seeing these kids makes you realize your only accomplishment in life was scoring a crappy rent.stabilized apt. They don't bother me. At night I go out and enjoy the city. Yes I put windows in my apt that keep the noise out. You should stop projecting your anger and bitterness about.your problems on the young and the.successful. I didn't realize this was a quiet old age city now. Sorry.you can't afford to move to Florida. I'm going to go out and have a good.time. Sorry if anyone who actually has a life keeps you awake. Cheers.
Lord help us. As much as I complain about them, the twentysomethings who live in my building and are a few years out of school are just as bad.
To those who say "get a life" etc, etc.. the East Village used to be pin-drop quiet at night, even with/in it's former "gritty" reputation/glory. It has nothing to do with "old people" or being jealous about some young person's success. Those type of "deal with it" comments are indicative of who lives there now. Ugh, another school year starting. The EV is bad enough already without adding hundreds more students.
as someone that lives a few apartments down from this dorm, the first weekend of school is the noisiest and usually disturbs my sleep with whatever chanting and music they do for orientation. but the NYU kids are far less obnoxious or dangerous than the lowlifes that walk down the block to get to webster hall.
True but NYC has added over 1 million residents since those days. Tourism has doubled from 27 million to 54 million. Successful cities are crowded and busy. Buffalo is pin drop quiet at night. So are lots of other places. I remember it quiet. I also remeber the central park jogger and the TSP homeless campground and the.kid who got killed on the train going to the US.Open. Lets bring all that back. You can have your mostly quiet nights. Quiet except for the screams of someone being stabbed/raped.etc. Ah the good old days.
Anon 9:50: people are still being stabbed and raped in the EV, and quite often recently, it seems. I don't think bringing in NYU et al means better living conditions. All else (stabbing & raping) being equal, I prefer the neighborhood without these kids - aka quiet nights without woooooo parties on the rooftop next to me.
Have fun paying off those student loans and living in your parents basement until you're 60. Better study real hard as there's a million of you kids all competing for the same six jobs. No pressure.
Most of the biggest douchebags entertaining themselves in the EV DON'T go to NYU. While I think that NYU (and Cooper Union) as institutions have been very bad neighbors, I don't blame their students.
Privileged, drunk, condescending, loud, ignorant, vomiting, and soon to be your boss when they take over daddy's firm; what's not to like?
If I had to choose between raucous young people, on one hand, and crotchety old people who don't even know where the noise is coming from, on the other, I'd choose the young people. If the crotchety old people had their way, the East Village would be a gated retirement community, with no amenities!
Anon 7:19 I do not desire to be kept awake at 3 in the morning knowing I have to work next day to pay my rent stabilized not rent control rent to keep a roof over my head. Are they young yes successful to be determined forking over Daddy's credit card is not a measurement of success.
Greedy colleges are to blame. They have no place left to put these kids so the treat the East Village, West Village, and LES as an extension of their campus. There are just too many college kids in the neighborhood.
why are people not ashamed to be so prejudiced against old people (just wait) and moderate income people in rent regulated apts. They are your teachers, your crossing guards, people make everything work for those of you who are rich. They are the people who kept this neighborhood going when the City abandoned to drugs. You are saying more about yourselves than others you look down on,
It's not all bad, now that these loudmouthed brats have their thousand-dollar and up bicycles parked all over the place my trusty 2-wheeler is completely unmolested, it is worth less than the valve-stems on their swanky rides. Tough life, being a student!

5...4...3...2...1..."Sorry you can't afford to move to Florida”. Ah. Yes. Nothing like the classics.
"I go out and enjoy the city""I put windows in my apt that keep the noise out""I'm going to go out and have a good.time"I. I. I. = Me. Me. Me. All About meeeeeeeeeeee.This dude is probably the 44 y.o. still being funded by mommy and daddy and who loves the new lunch menu at Boulton & Watt. All about him, egotistical, self-focused and vain.You know how you can tell a narcissist? Just asked them. And he just answered it. "they don't see narcissism as a negative quality -- they believe they are superior to other people and are fine with saying that publicly..."Those who think they are already great don't try to improve themselves. And narcissism is bad for society because people who are only thinking of themselves and their own". And he's probably from Florida who now thinks he owns the EV and NYC.
8.24.14, 8:12 pm ... THANK YOU!!!Exactly. But just try explaining narcissism to a narcissist...they get so confused!
