ICYMI: Bidding farewell to NYC after 2 days (heh):

I take pride in knowing that I lived in New York when it was still gritty. When you could still ride a Ferris wheel in the middle of a giant toy store. When you couldn’t walk across Forty-second Street without getting hassled by crowds of topless painted women. When the M&M’s store didn’t have a limit on the number of pounds of candy you could smuggle out in your conference’s complimentary tote bag. (The New Yorker)
