We couldn't get NYSC to come here; people tried.

It's not about residents underestimating the appeal; it's about numbers and outrageously high commercial rents in JH compared to other neighborhoods.

Part of that could be that NYSC isn't doing well. I think part of it is that they over-expanded too quickly. In Manhattan they feel almost as ubiquitous as Duane Reade or Starbucks (yes, hyperbole, but dang they are everywhere). I'd love a NYSC to come in to the neighborhood - JH residents would flock to a gym that offers classes, towel service, etc. I went to the one in Sunnyside - which actually isn't the most convenient location for that neighborhood - and it was always decently full. But as mentioned, I've been told commercial space rent isn't much different than Manhattan rents. What gives? That's just nuts.
