    Cleveland is not “a basket case” and has not been for at least 15 years.

    The reason it’s changed is Giuliani. All those policies you named were his but you neglected to mention his name. Not sure why.

    New York definitely needed to be cleaned up but what it is today is a sanitized, gentrified version of its former self…I’ll take the gritty New York of the late 80’s early 90’s any day

    What’s really sad is “Escape From New York” was actually filmed in St. Louis because it looked more shelled-out. St. Louis: Where Bad Things Happen to People who Usually Deserve It.”
