I heart NY

Most if not all of you know that I have an interest in "old" New York, whether it's my nostalgia for the bygone days of the Automat or my disappointment that the city destroys beautiful historic architecture to turn itself into a giant suburban mall. Sigh. Well, I'm not alone. I found some great blogs about what's happening to NY that I added to the nav but also want to directly pimp out to y'all.

Jeremiah's Vanishing New York
. This is great site chronicling the city's changes. It's also a little depressing, but that's the point. Learned a new word, too: Yunnie.

Lost City. Another site dedicated to discussing the loss of New York's architectural and cultural history.

This stuff reminds me that I need to post more about the Automats.
