If you think New Yorkers are pathetic and deluded, how about the folks in DC? And LA - City of the Fallen Angels?I love Santa Monica though, so leave them out of it!

QuoteNEW YORK?The deadline for submissions for the city's micro-apartment program has ended, with 33 proposals received.Announced in July, the competition is a pilot that could set the stage for reducing the minimum number of square feet for an apartment in New York City. Micro-apartments are expected to be between 275 and 300 square feet, but could be even smaller if design teams can fit a bathroom and a window in the space.Current regulations stipulate that apartments be no smaller than 450 square feet, though anecdotal evidence and city officials suggest that smaller units already exist.

A proper NYC pizza is meant to eaten by hand, whether home made (I am experimenting with a pizza steel in place of the pizza stone, which is not as sturdy as one might think) or from/in a restaurant. The problem arises around the middle if the topping is too moist. It may then cause the crust to get soggy and lose structural integrity, inviting the use of tools. This could be viewed as a definitional problem, in that a pizza with a soggy center is not a "proper NYC pizza", but if it is encountered in a proper NYC pizzeria, then this sounds nit-picky. Which is not to say that I stand up for our current mayor, who has big shoes to fill and so far not much to show for himself.

QuoteOriginally posted by: edouardPizzagateDo New-Yorkers really eat pizzas with the hands?(even) In my humble circle we use a fork/knife.When I lived in Oman I never ate with knife and fork .. the steel destroys the taste.Use right for eating, not left hand. In NYC you eat pizza and drink Schlitz in the bar while watching the ball game
