Looking at "a non-delirious New York" (Jeremiah's Vanishing NY)

Remembering First Avenue's La Focacceria (With Leftovers)

When EV rents were $40-$70 a month (Ephemeral NY)

B-day wishes for Legs McNeil (This Ain't the Summer of Love)

From the forgot-to-follow-up-on-this department... A reader asked if I knew anything about a fire on Third Street and Avenue B last week... No, but I did see this Thursday evening on that block...

And if I catch the jokester who put this mag front and center at my newsstand of choice....

"Save America"? From what? And even if America is dying or whatevs I don't think a beauty queen who failed out of four different state schools will be the one to fix it for us. Nice teefs, though.

Also I'm calling shenanigans on "the untold story ... in her own words!"

The story is called Going Rogue, Palin's the author ergo they are "her own words," and I hardly think a story that's sold upward of a million copies can be considered "untold."

Shut up, low-budget Sarah Palin magazine.
