The Morning News

The Morning News has an absolutely fantastic piece about New York by Magdalen Powers up now. It's a beginner's guide to New York, and it's absolutely fantastic. Check it out.

Which reminds me: does The Morning News have a monopoly on writers with really cool names? Magdalen Powers. Claire Zulkey. Rosecrans Baldwin. Tobias Seamon. Yancy Strickler. Woodwyn Koons. I mean, those are just really cool names. That, and they can all write really well.
