No Big Apple!
Amsterdam, the city which I call home, is no Manhattan! Buildings and houses are in rough shape, businesses sit empty and the city is, in my opinion, depressing. After visiting NYC, Amsterdam's problems jumped out at me this morning as I drove around. I know, there are nice areas of the city...those areas aren't what I am talking about here.
Waterfalls hidden behind fences and old factory buildings are commonplace. How about using some of the trillions of dollars in bailouts to beauty our cities?
Amsterdam is crumbling below us. Will the Northeast return to its beautiful state?
