    OPSU in Goodwell Ok still teaches manual machine skills. 1646 miles from the City, is that far enough?

    There is nothing like that here. All factories in LIC have become expensive housing for yuppies.

    Just about all the large factories in this state are housing something else now Nelson. Either that or they have been abandoned. Some even have some of the machinery in them.

    When I was a kid, Long Island City (LIC) was all factories. People used to work in them. Eagle electric, Sony, Swingline Staples, X-Acto, Chicklets....
