#2

hot
smelly
dirty
urban
expensive
big
pointless
consumer central
boring
dangerous
american


#3

Just like in Friends I reckon.

I’ve never been to Berlin either. Do we need a separate thread for that too?


#4

but if you can’t handle me at my worst


#5

I reckon it’s good but a bit disappointing


#6

I’ve watched so much Sex and the City that I don’t feel the need to go.


#7

Streets are filled with people stepping out in front of cars and shouting “Ey ah’m walkin’ here!


#8

Massive cliche for people with zero originality


#9

reckon the novelty would wear off quite quickly


#10

Berlin but expensive, less German, less Döner and more millionaires.


#11

London


#12

Surely that’s Jaywalking though, so anyone who does do that gets pulled over by a cop (eating a doughnut)


#13

Don’t think I’ll ever be up for going you know. The idea of doing so makes me feel exhausted.


#14

I reckon the subway is louder, dirtier, and more difficult to navigate than the Underground. Also I reckon you get more eccentric individuals riding in your carriage than you would on the Underground


#15

There’s at least a dozen places I’d go to in America before I’d go to New York I reckon


#16

Its the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine


#17

Also that all the residents are very direct and self-assured


#18

Probably run into these guys on the subway.


#19

There’s loads of doner


#20

Been to Old York which is decent but not so good I’d travel all that way to go to the rebooted version…
