Update…

So, my dreams of warbling Christmas carols like a torch singer in the streets have been dashed. There’s a monsoon today.  And one predicted for tomorrow as well.

Also, several readers have pointed out that there are in fact many other fine neighborhoods in New York City and that my staunch defense of the upper west side might be overstating things a bit.

Sorry everyone… 😦  I can only say I was feeling feisty.
