Couldn't you have just carried it while you were out and about?

Too much trouble. No meetings with any bigwigs today, so who cares.

Taxi wasn't even an option?

No. Trains, train platforms (worse) and city streets.

I remember you posting it, but I figured it was the Post acting like the anti-DeBlasio tabloid that it really is.

But it really was very noticeable this weekend. Big change from a year or so ago when I would spend a lot of time walking the neighborhood.

Interesting point about landlords.

In Bronxville village, a bank of shops went out of business in the 2008-2009 crisis and bubble burst. They've sat vacant ever since. I don't think there are any other vacant storefronts in the village. Certainly not like what JPod describes on the UWS.

But nothing ever opened in any of them. (I think there are four.) I later overhead some men talking about it. Apparently, the spaces are all owned by the same landlord and he was asking a massive rent that nobody was willing to pay. He preferred to just wait until he could get someone to bite and apparently could afford to do so. The village government was annoyed because they wanted those properties to be used (of course the man still had to pay the taxes, but he could afford to do that and wait).

It appears that at least one of them will finally get a new business, seven years later.

Sounds kind of like the dynamic he describes.

There should be an app with a collection of cafes and restaurants that don't cheap out on the AC. I have gone to three places that are sweltering inside.

If Manton what hope is there for the rest of humanity? Well, I for one am taking a stand! You can pry my three piece suit out of my Cold. Dead. Hands.

Don't you mean, hot, clammy, dead hands?

This should flip a large segment of the climate change deniers
