BREAKING: I’m Moving to Mexico — Mexico, NY, that Is

Welcome to Mexico, NY

Welcome to Mexico, NY

Go figure.

After all these years living in regular New York (i.e. Manhattan, what else?) I just learned there is a town called Mexico, located in the northeast part of Oswego County, New York.

According to the always-reliable Wikipedia, the Town of Mexico has a population of 5,197 and contains a village also named Mexico. What’s more, there’s a Mexico High School (once called Mexico Academy,) a Mexico Middle School and even a Mexico Elementary School.

¡Ajúa!

¡Ajúa!

 

This fact opens up amazing opportunities for this blogger, who can no longer afford to live in regular New York and misses the thrills of living in a place called Mexicou. After all, Mexico, NY officials claim, this town is “A great place to live, work and play.”

That might be so, but before making such a radical move, this blogger will be embarking on a serious investigation of Mexico’s taco-situation, which will ultimately make or break the deal.

Stay tuned.

    OK I have to quibble with your “Manhattan, what else?” side-sneer. I lived in Manhattan twice. As a grown-up, with a good job, dating lovely sophisticated women with graduate degrees, going out to the suitably noir-ish post-apocalyptic holes in the wall on Avenues B and C, thinking we were sumthin’ else. It was pretty okay. But I lived in Brooklyn for three years when I was younger and tougher and could go toe-to-toe with young black whippets at the top of the key or out on the wing on a fast break……and ya know what? Brooklyn is one helluva town. Maybe I like the me that lived in Brooklyn better than the me who lived in Manhattan, but I kinda like the Brooklyn I lived in better than the Manhattan I lived in. Particularly when I hold it up to the light of the Mexico I live in now. What else? Brooklyn, Mamacita, Brooklyn. One helluva town. And I’ll guarantee you they have better tacos than whatever you’re seeing for $17.99 in Chelsea.

  2. Brooklyn? Are you kidding me? No one can afford Brooklyn! (I’m in the “Mexican” part of Manhattan so still cheap tacos) ¡Ajúa!

  3. LOL Yes you should check taco-situation. it is one of the most important things! Greetings!
