Quoting Filmgirl26:

I hope I am replying right this time. I am new to this site and blogging. Anyway, I am not too sure about West 10th street and Bleeker but I think it is still safe enough. I mean I would not go out anywhere in NYC by myself at 3 am, but that's just me. But otherwise, it is probally safe enough during the day. Anyway, I was born in midtown at Roosevelt-St. Luke's hospital on West 59th street. And when I was a kid I lived on West 57th street between 8th and 9th. That area and the building I originally grew-up in has gotten much nicer in the past 10 years (wish I still lived there, actually). It is a great area! I also lived in midtown later on west 47th street for a little while. Sometimes that area can be tiring because there are always a lot of commuters and tourists, but it is also so easy to get around there because it is right in the heart of the city and it is certainly lively. I think I like midtown best than any of the places I've lived so far.



You are replying "correctly" indeed.  You've got the hang of the thing for sure. 

It's been so long since I've set foot on Manhattan Island [or is the actual island called something else?  I forget] that I have no idea what your area of midtown is like now.

But once again, I wish you the best in finding a home in Manhattan that suits your needs and wants most miraculously well.

Hi Edna,

 

Thanks a lot for your response. Sure, you can e-mail me on here. Sorry, I am no longer a paying member (just here for the blogs now - you will find many of us are, lol) so can't initiate e-mail but if you e-mail me, then I, of course can respond.

 

I think it will make for an interesting project. Look forward to your e-mail.

 

Liv.



Hi Liv,

 

I will email you and we should chat! But just so you know, your project must be copyrighted for me to look at it for legal reasons. I write my own stuff and in case I had something similar in the works it could cause problems. But I will email you, but you should hold off in mailing me the actual idea or script until we figure out what is the best way for me to hear your idea legally. But I will email you now, and thank you for thinking of me! -Edna

I belive in airports. If the airport of a city is good, it's a good place. I've never been to NYC just explored its JFK a few times. And in spite of my observations I still hope the city is magic :-)


hahaha  I have heard of many spotters over the years  but airport spotters definitely tops them all!;-) ... 

 

 


V...it is called a fluffer.....;-)

Regarding property prices ,yeah the same thing in London...it is crazy how expensive it is. And spacewise I truly think it beats New York in price per sqf... or even Monaco where I lived like a queen compared to London...hehehe 

 Liv  does your project with FilmGirl involve getting her to come to London and document the monumental indie meeting of all the MM folk? ;-) I can chip in to sponsor that...  and we can definitely get a couple of imaginative people involved to discuss scriptwriting... 

So now I understand why your posts show up so late Liv, I guess you concluded that dating sucks here and is not worth paying anymore...? ;-)... 

 

 



I have a dog. I run my own finishing school and I take prisoners

Might you be interested in working on a film project with a rather intriguing story line?

I have been there.  Accidentally wound up downtown, at least more downtown than I wanted during morning rush hour.  Yes I was in a car.  Not the best way to be in New York.

 

I was there previously on an interview trip, much more pleasant.  This back in the day when companies flew you in first class and really wined and dined you.  Got an offer, but did not go to work there.

~~ Filmgirl ~~

 

 

 

New York, New York, The City where I " Grew Up " back in the seventies. The mémoires of which would take a book if not several, to tell it all. It was the good ole days in The Art Capital of the world or The Concrete Jungle when Times Square was Times Square and not a Disney Place. Wilder than The West at times with Seven Bank Hold-ups on an average day. Great Movies that portrayed a life for survival of the fittest. " The Taking of Pelham 123  , Dog Day Afternoon , Taxi Driver, etc...Blackouts in the subway, Stuck in elevators, Junkies and Cops shootout in the middle of the night, Stumbling over freshly shot m..f.. 's in the communal bathrooms of roach infested security " studio " apartments where the kitchens were converted from a closet in the room with enough space to brew a cup of coffee and a slice of toast and no ice box either.  Summer humidity to melt your socks and bloomers.  Bitter cold Winters to test your cardiac pump and endurance for cabin fever.

 

Aah !  but life began again in the Spring. The Village Chess Tables with my Russian friend Boris, cussing at every bad move.  Jam sessions on Sundays in The Park. 34th Street Block parties, Carnegie Hall, Apollo Theatre, Bagel Nosh in mid-town or Dim Sum in Chinatown for brunch with The Massive New York Times of course. Balmy evenings in Little Italy that even blind folk could easily find, with the pungent aromas of Garlic, Pecorino Parmesana and Roma Tomatoes wafting in the air of the narrow streets. A hole in the wall place with a bunch of wise guys sitting in the corner laughing and planning their next hit. Real Sicilian Pizza, oozing with extra virgin olive oil and a fine Barolo for starters. Sidewalk gambling until day-break.

 

To be continued.........

 

P S  :  I do not have any tatoos but often think of having one engraved on my butt,

 that simply says ...." Made in New York " .

 

 

 

~~ S L ~~

 

 



Wonderful! Wonderful imagery!! SL! But really LOL about the made in New York butt tatoo! Hand over my eyes there, lol!!! :)

 

Liv.

~FG~.. .Wow, that's great. NYC is a great place for a career in the arts , be it in film or whatever. I'm not in the business but know lots of folks in it from coast to coast. Always fun going out with them and partying ...although the work is laborious. I don't envy anyone in the BIZ, the long hours.



Yeah, the long hours can be tough on getting enough sleep. I tend to thrive working more long hours for some reason than working 9 to 5 though. Especially if I am doing something creative.

Quoting Voyager54:

~Film Girl~  So...are you involved in Film?  I have friends in the 'biz' in both Manhattan and LA. A friend of mine from here won the Tony for Best Actor in Jersey Boys and another friend does is the director for the International Film festival. I'm supposed to be doing something with them regarding a charity thing with Millenium Magazine, but ,to quote from an old Sex Pistols song I've been pretty vacant lately.

Anyway...Manhattan...unless you have $20 million for a reasonably decent apartment or condo, living there relegates one to either a shoe box or a rabbit hutch. How's that working out for ya?



Hey there, 

Yeah, I am involved in filmmaking. I produced and directed an indie project that aired on PBS and I am producing a comedy feature film now. I would give you my website if you wanted to check it out (I could always use moral support..lol) but they don't let you posts websites on this site. Anyhow, your friends sound really interesting. I would love to hear more about them! I liked your proifle picture with the dog - I wish I still had one! But anyway, yes, Manhattan is rough like that sometimes. You have to make a choice sometimes between how big an apartment you want or the location you want in life sometimes!

Quoting Curious2078:

Hi, Filmgirl.  First, if you want it to be clear to whom your posts are responding, when you respond click on "quote."  That way we'll all know whom you are responding to.

Second.  No, I don't miss NYC much.  I do miss trips to the Met Museum, and the Whitney.  I think the visits cost something phenomenal now compared to the free entrances that were available to me back when.  I love both of those museums.  And I always wished I could afford the Broadway shows.  I kind of "miss" them in the sense that I always wanted to be able to go but rarely could afford it.  I still wish I could afford them.  I'd love to see the  current "Death of a Salesman," but, no way.

Where were you born in Manhattan?  So few of us were actually born there.  That's why I'm curious.  I was born in a midtown hospital named, believe it or not, "Gotham Hospital."  It was somewhere between 38th and 48th Streets.  It suffered a terrible fire two weeks after I was born and the remaining structure was turned into a welfare hotel.  LOL  Lucky I "came out" when I did.

My area of the Village was very "cute."  I haven't been there in over 20 or 25 years, not sure without checking my records which I'm not wont to bother doing.  Recently, though, I heard that where I lived is no longer a safe neighborhood.  When I was there--on West 10th between Bleecker and West 4th St.--it was the safest place in Manhattan for a straight woman.  As close as it was to Christopher Street, which we all called "Gay Boulevard," with its constant parade of gay men of every stripe known to man, especially the macho ones, saddled with whips and chains and other accoutrements of the S & M lifestyle, the muggers and other felonious types avoided the neighborhood like the plague.  So many of the gays were men built like brick s**thouses and as powerful as lions.  And they were always willing to come to the defense of any damsel in distress.  I used to go out at 3 in the morning to a deli around the corner from me for whatever I had a craving for with no worry about my safety at all.  

As I said, I've read that that situation has changed in my old neighborhood dramatically.  Very sad indeed. 

Oh, and BTW, all of us who ever lived in Manhattan all wish we had bigger place. 

I wish you the best in finding that. 

And I apologize for the font size change:  I've tried but I can get these last few lines to go back to what I started with.

Hi there, I live on the Upper West Side. I was born in Manhattan too. I use to housesit down in Greenwich Village when I was in college for this friend of my moms for like almost 6 monthes. I thought the area was so cute down there!

Thanks for the compliments on my picture. But never judge a book by its cover...LOL. Just kidding. I actually wish I had a bigger place. Its a one bedroom, but I am not too happy with the building management. But I am trying to take positive steps in my life to acheive more of what I want now. So where are you living now? Do you ever miss NYC?

Whereabouts are you living in NYC?  I lived in Greenwich Village for 15 years.  On West 10th St. between Bleeker and West 4th.  Also, I was born in Manhattan. 

 

You photo suggests that you've got a pretty cool place to be living in in the Big Apple.  Far better than the joint I lived in. 

 

So, what's your complaint?  Cockroaches?  Money?  What?  As far as I can tell from your photo, you're doing pretty darn well.
