What a great city, I love the way many people (natives) seem to me to be irritable, proud, loud, but deep down truly friendly and would rather bark at you so you actually know what the deal is than be cool, detached, or uncaring (which to me is what is offensive). As well, I appreciate the real, truly expansive, bedrock "liberality" in that it feels like there is room for everyone, and I love how it feels like you are entering a separate, unique universe when you enter the city - I've always had interesting experiences depending on how I've arrived. Yet, at the same time it's too vast of a city to be pegged like I'm attempting to do. Not to mention that every dive I went in I heard some semi-epic/epic story and a beer bought for me as an visiting aficionado of the city.

Also, people always focus on the hard urbanity and mix of people but there is a stellar alchemy of geography/geology/environment/climate and infrastructure that is sort of overshadowed.
i've read this 4 or 5 times ,it's excellent and spot on and brilliant really

The fact that the Cardinals fell to the Royals is causing far more gnashing of teeth in St. Louis.

^ Awww, the Cards should be used to gnashing their teeth, especially after the three game sweep they recently suffered at the hands of the (currently division-leading) Reds...not to rub it in or anything

By the way, awesome Gotham City phototour!!!

Great atmosphere. The palette on the evening shots looked very Whistlerish:

That's an interesting observation.
