Yes, it is NYC. Culturally, financially, economically, and diplomatically. You are just mad you can't afford to live in Manhattan!

Nordic countries are nice for what they are but they are not powerful nor influential.

As should others. Use the "Report Post" button (the red triangle icon below a user's avatar for those who don't know) and move on. I have. I hope others will too.

On SSP can be seen that the Spire/antenna is already protruding the scaffolding installed to rise it.

And then I come here, looking for information about that, but all I find is this non-related nonsense

Don't worry, I'm sure the mod will deal this soon.

There will always be someone working down there no matter the weather. But all exterior work will halt soon if it hasn't already.

Tell me where the hypocrisy is? Judge me from today's actions.

I was simply refuting a ridiculous argument that NYC is the center of the world. I was defending myself from being attacked in being called a person who is too poor to live in NYC ( a ridiculous assumption) and a city booster from Chicago, a city I don't even know very well.

Are you talking about a couple of times in the past where I happened to use a poor choice of words? That was the past, I've grown, learned my lesson and moved on. However I've never come in here trying to troll intentionally.

Get outta here, you're a troll and your previous comments are racial. You're just wasting space with your unneeded comments

Anyways, it's snowing very hard right over here in NJ
