Perverse principles

With the advent of a Premier League season involving the locals just a matter of weeks away, I was struck by the all-important question…

What do you stand for?

Just what is my local city all about? What do we have to offer to the visiting hordes of demented football fans over the next 9 months? Everyone should be aware of the excellent shopping and nightlife, but what about sampling some unique street food?

Then there is our stylish way of preserving historic buildings…

Our principled way of looking after endanger species doesn’t present any conflict with the pursuit of commerce…

This is a place where you can get sea-sick just by standing still and looking at some of the buildings…

But, we are proud of the fact that our great historical heritage stands tall (well, tall-ish) in the face of the advance of bland modernity…

Until we speak again, don’t let the dark gloomy clouds of potential defeat obscure the important decisions…

  1. It does make one a bit seasick, still pretty cool (even though it’s not my taste). Really the building being preserved, that ones cute. The castle looking building is pretty neat too. I’ve been showing friends around the Lower East Side and Chinatown lately. So many of my favorite buildings are gone. I love the Federal Row houses because they are cute and some of the oldest you can find. Sign.
