Ugh, What Am I Going To Do With All These Stilettos Now?

"It’s no secret that New York is having a bit of an identity crisis these days. Wall Street lost its swagger during the crash and hasn’t gotten it back despite the market’s broader recovery. Big banks are adding employees in Bangalore and Salt Lake City while cutting them in Manhattan. New York City’s budget wonks expect the city to add only 67,000 jobs this year, a sluggish number that faster-growing cities like Denver and Austin will look upon with pity. The city’s culture seems to be changing, too: Greenpoint and 'normcore' are in, stilettos and pinstripes are out; junior bankers now get Saturdays off; 'work-life balance' is no longer a euphemism for sloth."

Have to say I devoured all of the stuff in that NY Magazine feature shamelessly — if there's something I enjoy more than people doing a good job bashing Brooklyn, that would be them trashing San Francisco.

I have my reasons! Think you've banned me from commenting here! Still like and read you guys anyway!
