A sampling of Mr. Trump's New York City triumphs.
Too good to miss:
I read this after a day in downtown Los Angeles where a few glimmering "skyscrapers" (many of them more hotels than office towers from their markings) loom over a tiny section of the city center. The buildings are too spread out to block the slightly gray-tinged sky. I remember 15 years ago flying over Los Angeles on a day of deep fog; only two towers peaked out from the city center. Would more protrude today? I don't know.
Yesterday I was using public transportation, then on foot -- an experiment that failed I think. Two hours each way from the airport at LAX to downtown is just too much time and hassle for tiny savings of money and good feelings about caring for the planet. There is indeed something to be said for congestion or at least something to be said against sprawl.
