It was a very different city. Dirtier, more dangerous, but also more interesting. More people could afford to live there so it was more diverse, more creative. Now there are "ghost buildings. Entire apartment buildings of multi-million units bought as investments by over-seas buyers looking to hide money. No one lives in any of them. That’s the New York of today.
