Never hit a New Yorker, even in Sacramento

Nari was in town to attend her sisters wedding.  Shortly after she checked in to the hotel, she realized she’d left the dress she planned to wear to the wedding on her bedroom door in her apartment in New York

She was told there was a Macy’s less than two blocks away from the hotel.

She was walking up a slight slope as two young men riding down on a scooter crashed into her and three other women, knocking them all to the ground.  She didn’t know the other women  One woman started to cry, holding her leg, her friend was comforting her demanding an apology.

One of the men on the scooter said, they (the women) should have moved out of the way!    Nari ,who is five foot two Bronx Queen, punched him in the face.  She said she wished he would have tried to hit me back  I’d a dragged his bitch little ass all over  Sacramento” 

He did apologize…..a painful sorry!

Four women? This wouldn’t have happened in New York!  Those two little bitches crashing into us and blaming us? Oh hell…..   And those girls doing standing there doing nothing  after what those two did?  They didn’t even try to help us off the ground.    Is this how people are in California?

My mother used to work in Manhattan and one of those crazy bicycle messengers crashed into a old man at a bus stop and didn’t apologize , my mother! who is smaller than me and the other people at that corner beat the living shit out of that messenger. When she got home, we were shocked, we thought ,somebody had attacked her. Her clothes were torn and her hair was messed up.  But she said, she got him!

We look out for each other in New York.   I got to get out of California before I get put in jail! she laughs.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
