Last week’s East Coast earthquake may not have been strong enough to knock down buildings or even rattle subway riders, but it did manage to shake one thing free: the hoodest NYers we’ve heard in a long time.
While everyone else flooded Twitter and Facebook in response to the earthquake, I tuned into NY1. When they were reporting on the latest landmarks being evacuated and whether or not New York could really handle an actual earthquake, they were taking calls from the front lines. Yes, real New Yorks who felt the “erf” shaking underneath them. Here are just a few gems from yesterday’s broadcast:
“I felt the earf shakin.”
“I thought I was dying and sh*t.”
Ahh, New York. Got to love it.
