Ignatz commented on Bloomberg says it's too soon to judge WalmartNew York City is absolutely NO place for Wal-Mart or ANY giant box store. It is dense and walkable. And we LIKE it that way, and we want to KEEP it that way. That's why we LIVE here. If we wanted a lifestyle of giant stores and shopping malls, we would live in the suburbs for a lot less money. Why do you think we are willing to pay these ridiculous rents? Because it ISN'T like the suburbs, that's why. Why does Mayor Bloomberg want New York City to be like the suburbs? We are the URB. Not the SUB-urb.
