Doing what New Yorkers do best

I'm all for good causes, supporting our public schools, helping with the education of our children, etc. Still, given this recessive economy, is this the best time to be encouraging people to go shopping? And check out the walk-off line for this Fund for Public Schools ad..."help support public schools by doing what New Yorkers do best -- shopping." Really? Is this what people think we do best? What does this say about what NYC has become?

Seeing this prompted me to revisit Jeremiah's shopping essay from July. Maybe we should be encouraged to save some money.

Spotted on Avenue C near 8th Street. Note the "this is light pollution" graffiti.
