Tropical Storm Irene's swipe at the Big Apple proved Sunday that New Yorkers can be a tough crowd to impress. "I slept through the whole thing," said James Trager, a writer who said he was nonplussed by nature's display of fury that took place outside his windows overlooking 58th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in Midtown. "Nothing. It's exaggerated."
Boring! Nothin to see here concerned friends and family. It's a weak ending to all the hype. My state of emergency sleepover cohorts are sorely disappointed. Our survival skills were not tested. The skies are grey - in our unheroic hearts
New Yorkers were, however, very impressed with what we in Seattle could only see as a joke of an earthquake.
