The Future of the City Is Childless
America’s urban rebirth is missing something key—actual births.
A few years ago, I lived in a walkup apartment in the East Village of New York. Every so often descending the stairway, I would catch a glimpse of a particular family with young children in its Sisyphean attempts to reach the fourth floor. The mom would fold the stroller to the size of a boogie board, then drag it behind her with her right hand, while cradling the younger and typically crying child in the crook of her left arm. Meanwhile, she would shout hygiene instructions in the direction of the older child, who would slap both hands against every other grimy step to use her little arms as leverage, like an adult negotiating the bolder steps of Machu Picchu. It looked like hell—or, as I once suggested to a roommate, a carefully staged public service announcement against family formation.
"Sisyphean attempts" :mrgreen:

The "East Village" where I grew up (otherwise known as the Lower East Side), was not typical then or now.

Also there's a certain class and racial blindness. Poor non-whites in the neighborhood have plenty of children.

I think it might not be quite the same today as you remember it. (Disclaimer: I've never actually lived there myself. I stayed there for a couple days once a long, long time ago.) Anyway, my understanding is that it has gentrified and poor people would not be able to afford to live there.

I was back there in April. Very gentrified indeed.
My mother still lives there, you see.

All the old tenements have been condos for the last 20 years at least.
However there is still public housing, and that doesn't get gentrified.

The public school I went to is now de facto segregated as never before.

A neighborhood entirely not typical of anything.

When actual temperatures aren't high enough to make scary graphics, use heat index instead!

Almost awlawys.

It's messy and it smells.

Especeially if you're a homosexual.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
