Patti Smith to Young Artists: Don't Come to NYC

No really, don’t come. Apparently, there was a cheap time to live in New York city called the 70s and 80s in which it was magical and crack was rampant. Now go somewhere else like Detroit and watch a city burn. 

There is absolutely no way to live here at all. Don’t try it. Take the advice of an old lady who still lives in NYC.
