Coming soon to a soon-to-be hellhole near you, as ever-more New Yorkers flee the cesspit they created to begin the process all over again in your hometown.
It’s the Great Black Tar Way.
A cluster of junkies has turned Broadway into a shooting gallery, injecting drugs unhampered in broad daylight and then shuffling around in a zonked-out stupor, seemingly oblivious to the Midtown bustle around them, The Post has learned.
If that wasn’t enough, the addicts are peppering the area with used syringes, turning individual planters on 40th Street and Broadway into mini needle parks.
“They’ve taken over the tables, blatantly using needles and shooting up heroin all day long,” said a local worker who asked that he only be identified as James. “There’s no police action, there’s no reach-out. There’s nobody preventing this, and you know we’ve had multiple calls to 311 but nobody really responds. It’s becoming a real problem.”
He called his own 311 calls “futile exercises.”
The Post spotted several of the spent needles dumped at the scene — and even caught one of the vagrants shooting up out in the open on Tuesday afternoon, with no one stepping in or saying a word.
The accompanying pictures are…well. Hate to say it and all, because I still have plenty of friends in NYC and its environs, people I love and care greatly about. But the sad, sorry truth is this: New Yorkers twice elected the asshole primarily responsible for The City’s current sad collapse into misery and chaos. They should now be forced to enjoy what they voted for.
I suppose the ship already sailed on that Big Beautiful Escape From New York-style Wall idea, eh…?
She’s shooting up heroin but wears the Mask, but then pulls it down.
The utter futile irony, sarcasm and parody of that one picture is worth a thousand words.
Plus the police officer 10 feet away all masked up and ignoring her.
This was never about people’s health.
Who are they to bitch? San Fran got them beat by a country mile.
I remember going to SF many times in the mid ‘80s and even then there were no-go areas, like the Tenderloin District. And North Beach at night was a crap-shoot if you didn’t know which clubs and restaurants to patronize.
Been to NYC a number of times and as far as I’m concerned the only thing it has going for it is great food.
The WuFlu has closed the restaurants.
I stand corrected. True dat.
