The New York City subway is just an endless churn of deeply upsetting, stomach-turning news today and I think we all deserve a break. Therefore, I am pleased to report that we will be taking a little field trip to Toronto, where instead of belligerent subway rats who crawl all over your face, they have polite Straphanger Squirrels who just want to take a quick peek out the window, thanks.

Ninety two years ago, when Mulberry Street hosted NYC's first Feast of San Gennaro, there certainly wasn’t anyone hawking fried mozzarella balls coated in falafel, or boozy gummy bears, or disturbingly realistic Shar-Pei puppy ice creams. Here in 2018, however, we do things a little differently, and the huge crowds that packed into Little Italy for the feast's first weekend were treated to an astonishing array of things to eat and drink, from the reassuringly old fashioned to the confoundingly newfangled.

Walking up to the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum in Manhattan is startling. It’s set back from East 61st Street, so after passing bodegas and restaurants and a parking garage, suddenly there’s a stone wall topped by hedges that gives way to an ornate gate.
