MOVIN’ ON UP OUT

MOVIN’ ON UP OUT

To the East Side.

Anyone know any reputable moving companies in New York City?

    I’m of the mind that there are no reputably moving companies.

  2. iocaste Says:

    I was fine with a company called Moving Man.

    Seriously? East Side?

  3. Dawn Summers Says:

    yep.

  4. ugarte Says:

    Flat Rate Movers was good to me. I can’t believe that you are going from the ECB to the most boring neighborhood in NYC.

  5. F-Train Says:

    The UES? And you call yourself a New Yorker? For shame.

  6. dawn summers Says:

    Big picture people: I am leaving my mother’s apartment.

  7. Petitedov Says:

    Ooh, congrats!

  8. Karol Says:

    Yeah, seriously you faux Brooklyn snobs.

  9. Charles Says:

    Sounds like someone is a little sensitive about their current environs – and putting on airs to boot. When did “faux” replace “fake”, Karol?

    Probably after you became all Manhattan.

  10. Dawn Summers Says:

    hahaahaahahaaaha

  11. Pearatty Says:

    Whoo Hoo!! Is it that walkup?

  12. Dawn Summers Says:

    yep

  13. Pearatty Says:

    How big is my room, for when I come to visit?

  14. Ken Says:

    I’ve used Ace Moving & Storage twice.

  15. F-Train Says:

    What’s that expression about taking the girl out of Brooklyn…? =D

    Here’s what you Brooklyn transplants don’t get: it’s the dream of people living in real Brooklyn to someday live in Manhattan. Not forever, but certainly for awhile. And while the east side is ‘boring’ what with its low crime and lack of graffiti, it’s exactly what people who grew up in the hood are looking for in their grown-up neighborhood.

  17. dawn summers Says:

    yeah, yeah, now address the real issue of fake becoming “faux,” frenchy.

  18. Charles Says:

    Yeah, yeah, that’s what I thought growing up in Queens, too, Karol. Then I realized that three years was enough and retreated to the boroughs. You’ll retreat too.

  19. F-Train Says:

    Further proof about the girl and Brooklyn. See, Karol’s last comment.

    I was just slamming the UES as a crappy neighborhood in its own right, based on my 11 years of living in NYC, but fine, fine, let’s play this out:

    Are you telling me that you have to go into Manhattan, specifically to the UES, to find a low-crime, no-graffiti neighborhood in New York that’s within your price range? I think you’re not looking hard enough, either in Brooklyn or in the rest of Manhattan.

    Yes, it really sucks for you that you grew up in a shitty neighborhood. Let’s all shed a tear now as you thump your chest and proclaim your “realness” based on your tough Brooklyn upbringing. None if it changes the fact that the UES is the suck.

    Sorry to be the one to break it to you.

  20. Karol Says:

    Yeah, yeah, that’s what I thought growing up in Queens, too, Karol. Then I realized that three years was enough and retreated to the boroughs. You’ll retreat too.

    No doubt. If and when I have a family, back to Brooklyn I will go. That’s what my ‘for at least awhile’ means.

    And ‘F-train’, you can take your 11 years and…

    I like the upper east side. It’s the cheapest rent in Manhattan. I like the staid calmness of it. I like coming home to it. I don’t need where I live to be wild and crazy and dirty and ugly. That’s for you ’11 years’ people who need to have that authentic NY experience to write home about to your friends. I’m happy to live somewhere safe and calm and nice and not have to worry about being killed. You’re right, growing up in BK in a bad neighborhood made me appreciate what I have now. I don’t see being poor as cool and I don’t aim to live somewhere ugly but hip. You learn to leave that to the transplants who don’t know better and who think the F Train is some kind of badge of honor when I used to take that shit home at 15 from the Limelight. Get back to me in another 11 years.

  21. dawn summers Says:

    wow…so basically, we’ll be blogging about abortion and the upper east side from now on.

  22. F-Train Says:

    That’s for you ’11 years’ people who need to have that authentic NY experience to write home about to your friends.

    Overgeneralizations and stereotypes for the win! Good job!

    Seriously – are you really this ignorant? I was always willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, despite some of your more dubious pronouncements, because you are a friend of Dawn. More and more the evidence piles up that I shouldn’t.

    In any event, please feel free to continue making ridiculously broad generalizations about people you don’t know and mindlessly beating your chest about how. fucking. awesome. you are because you’ve lived in NYC your whole life, as opposed to those “unauthentic” people who haven’t. It’s kinda funny. In a sad way.

  23. Karol Says:

    Dude. Review your first and second comment and try to calm down. Why dish it out if you can’t take it? And, honestly, I have never need the benefit of your doubt. But you’re right: I am fucking awesome.

  24. Karol Says:

    First and third comment, my bad.

  25. F-Train Says:

    I’m plenty calm. =D I don’t know what I “can’t take” or what I “dished out”. If you think I was somehow personally offended by your Brooklyn comments, you’re wrong (proving once again how very little you know about me). I just have a very low tolerance for ignorance and arrogance of the type that you repeatedly display.

    Hmm, sound like anybody else we know?

  26. Karol Says:

    (proving once again how very little you know about me)

    You mistake me for someone who wants to know anything about you though, honestly, have you ever met such a person?

    In the future you should consider what you say and who you say it too and wonder if you’ll be able to hear what they say back to you.

    I’ll leave it here, I don’t want to hurt your feelings any more than I clearly already have.

  27. dawn summers Says:

    umm…karol, f-train does not have feelings. he is a mean, mean man.

    f-train, i’ve always known that you and rick are the same person.

    now, back to commenting about me and how awesome i am. see, pearatty.

  28. F-Train Says:

    *yawn* karol. you still squawking about this?

    at least now I remember why I’ve spent the last six months ignoring you. thanks for reminding me.

  29. Pearatty Says:

    Boy Dawn, you are the awesomest awesome girl ever. I’m so glad you are getting a neat apartment so all your friends can come over for parties and meet each other in . . . oh. Never mind.

    (Except the first part is still true.)

  30. dawn summers Says:

    :)….your room is all prepped and ready.

  31. Pearatty Says:

    See folks, that’s how it’s done.

  32. Karol Says:

    Her ‘room’ is ready, huh? Odd since it’s a one bedroom.

  33. Pearatty Says:

    Well, sure, that’s what she told *you*. 😉

  34. dawn summers Says:

    So’s your face, red head.
