Jennifer Rubell: Well New York is a lot less dangerous now than it used to be.  Or I perceive it as less dangerous than it used to be.  And I think it’s gotten a lot harder for people to move here and start here.  And I don’t know.  You know people are always talking about the demise of New York, whether it was rotting in the ‘70s when I was growing up; or now that it’s filled with hedge fund people and artists can’t afford it.  So I think that New York being in the process of failing in some way is a big part of the city’s narrative.  And it’s good to know that it’s still going on, just in a completely different format.
