Or, We Need Immigrants for, What, Again?

David Bouhadana, who somehow manages to be an award-winning sushi chef in New York’s East Village despite being a Florida native of French-Moroccan descent.

“Libertarianism, like most libertarians, is all about someone else paying for their ethnic dining habits. It’s why they are no longer of any use to the Right.”[1]

“What makes America great is, therefore, less about productivity than about population, less about Google and Stanford than about babies and immigrants.”[2]

The last time I was in New York, in the mid-2000s, I heard that there was finally an answer to one of the most puzzling problems of the metropolis: why can’t you find good Mexican food in New York? Read more …

Make Cities Great Again

Times Square, New York by Arthur Clifton Goodwin. Late 1800s.

Arthur Clifton Goodwin, Times Square, New York, late 1800s

1,384 words

James Traub’s history of Times Square in New York, The Devil’s Playground (Random House, 2007) provides – perhaps unintentionally – an excellent case study illustrative of when and how American cities went wrong.

In March of 1960, the New York Times ran a long front-page story under the headline ‘Life on 42nd St. A Study in Decay.’ Read more …

bill-de-blasio-celebrates-mayoral-victory1,480 words

With Bill de Blasio recently being sworn in as New York mayor, following a campaign that included a fair amount of “reverse dog whistling” about how “racist” the highly successful policing policies of previous administrations had been, we can expect to see a return of faux-naivety and political interference in the battle to control crime in Gotham City.  Read more …

More on Henry James & H. P. Lovecraft 
The Princess & the Maggot

Henry James, in a 1913 charcoal sketch by John Singer Sargent.

4,592 words
