I agree - I didnt mean to use that as proof for anything - just a recollection of the good ole days.<quoted text>
In fainess the Squeegie guys are pretty annoying.
I remember driving into the city in the 70s (as a kid with mom and dad) and them coming up and putting dirty water on the windshield.
And there were stories that if you didn't pay them they would scratch your car.
You obsiously get more NYC news up there than I get down here. so I will defer.
I also remember (farther back)- school trips to Broadway and sneaking away to buy fake IDs in Time Square; homeless peeing everywhere; and general paranoa about being a white boy from the burbs and attracting muggers...Oh - the good ole days
