Ex-Gawker editor Choire Sicha to write a nonfiction book on some 20-somethings trying to live and work in NYC. "If you’re fascinated by something you can get close to it — that’s always been true about New York," he told the Observer. "But I also feel like the $1.99 breakfast sort of went away, and the room for rent in the East Village went away too. The cost of entry became prohibitive with the last little boomlet we had, in a kind of extreme way." He went on: "I had a million jobs when I moved here and what I see happening among my younger friends, and among people I’m interviewing who are kind enough to give me their time, is there’s nowhere to go."
