Nosebleed takes its name from the prevailing motto of that sensibility, that we wouldn’t go up there (up
being anything north of 14th Street ) because we’d get a nosebleed. It is redolent of all the provincialism that
makes New York City so myopically special, where neighborhoods do matter and where the global view remains
much the same as Saul Steinberg’s classic New Yorker magazine cover, View from 9th Avenue, where the details
of the city end at the Hudson River as the west gapes beyond like an insignificant wasteland. Make that drawing
looking up from Fuse and you’ll see a similar void outside the center of our universe. Downtown may have been
colonized by money and gentrified into something way white and polite, but the attitude persists. These are the
artists of that particular place of mind.  – Carlo McCormick
