I envy the wrath aimed at lustful pols who sully New York’s Runyonesque reputation by draining its fleshpots into the hotels of DC.
To preserve it, City Journal should lobby City Hall to make the Seven Urban Sins as compulsory as recycling.
Mirth at the sight of freezing smokers.
Adding houses to existing suburbs or entablature to East Side garden walls.
Obtaining cabs by outrunning women with strollers.
Opening car doors into the paths of foulmouthed bicycle messengers.
Imposing a trans-fat fast on thy neighbor.
Aiming pothole water at pedestrians while driving.
Encouraging urban delinquency by voting for politicians.
