Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes …

… Leaving New York to Find the American Dream in Philadelphia - The New York Times. (Hat tip, Dan Bloom.)

Well, we're pretty settled, since we own the house we live in, and it just keeps increasing in value. But for various reasons — taxes, stunningly inept politicos — Philadelphia may well prove a liability eventually, and we could take ourselves elsewhere if necessary, probably upstate, where we used to vacation and have friends.

Bok, by the way, is just eight blocks due south of us.
Bok is topped by two rooftop bars with dynamite views of the surrounding rowhouse neighborhood, where, in a scene straight out of “Rocky,” vendors at the outdoor Italian Market still burn cardboard in garbage cans for heat in the winter.
Literally so, since Rocky  was partly shot in the Italian Market, off of which we live.
