« #7 Train Extension in Doubt | Main

Unaccustomed as I am to public blogging....

Why blog? Everyone blogs, or perhaps it only seems that way. On the Internet, to blog is to be. I had to have a blog.

What to talk about? This blog is about my passion for New York City ... its restaurants, its neighborhoods, its transit system, its theatre, its opera companies, its museums.

Along the way, I'll probably editorialize about politics, law, travel, and other topics that interest me. After all, it's the Supreme Blogger's Right to follow fancy's whim, and write as one pleases.

Yet, I do hesitate. Blogging seems so hopelessly self-indulgent. The Internet is full of blogs read by no one, serving no purpose but to satisfy the blogger's desire to see himself talk.

But I decided to give it a try anyway. Whether anyone's reading is beside the point ... but hopefully somebody will be.
