New York City’s first real hot spot—the city’s original “hot spot” of the 1970s—was a dive bar with a reputation for getting a good crowd.
But now, with its digital boom and an influx of tourists, hot spots are being built all over the city.
The only problem is that it’s hard to tell if it’s really a dive.
The article below is based on the author’s experience at one of the new hot spots.
The following is a condensed version of a longer interview with the author, which has been edited for clarity and length.
This is part two of an interview.
In the first part of this two-part series, we interviewed Michael Pachter, a former writer for the New York Times.
Now, in the second part, we’re going to ask some of the people who’ve built the new, hot-spot-heavy NYC.
What you need to know about the city’s hot spots: When the Internet was invented in 1991, the idea of a place like The New York Hotel was that it was a place where you could hang out and relax and have a nice, chilled drink.
But when you look at The New Jersey Hotel, which is a dive now, there’s a sense that it has a more intimate feel to it, that it feels like a small, intimate, social place.
In the 1980s, the city had a lot of money, and they needed more places to stay.
They had a need to be near people.
Hot spots were the last thing they needed.
And in the 1990s, that was one of those things where people started taking it upon themselves to create more of a social atmosphere and a place that people could be together and not be separated from one another by the world.
So, the next logical step was to create a hot spot, because you couldn’t have an actual dive bar and have an authentic place.
And what happened was that the dive bar culture kind of grew up.
You’ve got the underground dive bars, the dive bars are always around.
And then in the late ’90s, a lot more people started going to dive bars.
And so, that became the next trend.
It was a trend that just kind of took off.
The first thing that I thought was, “Wait a minute.
The thing that’s really amazing about New York is that every single time I go to The New Yorker, I’ve always got people looking at me and saying, “Oh, this guy is a real asshole.”
It’s not like it’s a new thing.
The same thing is true in other places like London or Amsterdam.
You just get this sense of, “I don’t want to hang out with this person.”
The fact that these places are becoming increasingly popular is just really, really cool.
When I started to write about New Yorkers, I’d been in New York for 20 years.
And I’d just moved back to New York after a long time, and I was very much aware of how different the place was than where I was.
It’s kind of like the American version of Paris, or London.
So I was always interested in the differences between the two cities, and this was something that I just really wanted to get into.
In 1991, I had never been to The Jersey Hotel.
And when I went to the hotel, I went straight to the bar.
I went in, I got the beer, I sat down, I waited.
And that was it.
I was a regular customer.
I had been in a hotel, and there were no socializing, and no parties going on.
And if you’re in a dive, you have to be at least on the edge of the bar to really make any kind of noise.
It just seemed to me that this was not the kind of place that a lot or even most people wanted to go to.
When the website for The Jersey opened, it was an immediate hit.
People were coming up to me saying, “[The Jersey Hotel] is so awesome.”
And I was like, “This is really good.
This will probably make it into The New Statesman.
“So, after a while, the website was becoming a really popular place.
There was a lot less people coming to the Jersey Hotel that I was seeing at that point.
And the hotel started seeing more and more people coming in and out.
And people were finding other ways to stay at The Jersey, like the outdoor pool, the hot tub, or the rooftop bar.
So that kind of changed the perception of The Jersey.
The website became very popular.
People started calling the hotel in New Jersey, “The Jersey.”
But they were very much on the outside looking in.
People would come up to you and say, “You know, I love that this place is really cool.”
They were actually making fun of me for being a tourist.
But the idea was that they were trying to
