Londonist is one of thirteen in the worldwide Gothamist network. Once a week, the editors of each site - from SFist to Shanghaiist - compile some of their most interesting posts into a neat digest. Check out what's been going on elsewhere in the ist-a-verse:
Chicagoist played tourist in its own city by spending half an hour on the famed Michigan Ave (with magical results) and then scoped out the crumbling architecture of Gary and East Chicago, Indiana towns that stand in the shadow of Chicago.
DCist asked whether the design of a new public library by famed British architect David Adjaye was ugly or not.
Bostonist considered the implications of an "Idiot" like Curt Schilling running for Senate.
Shanghaiist was appalled by extremely racist comments on main Chinese internet portals about Lou Jing, a half-black contestant on an Idol like show, especially when we saw how much of a sweetheart she was.
Phillyist was taken aback when Britney Spears opener Kristina DeBarge only performed three songs during her Philadelphia set and surprised that she actually appeared to be singing, rather than lip-synching.
Londonist wondered if it was really necessary for a local council to smother a vintage piece of Banksy art/graffiti in black paint, prompting accusations of vandalism.
SFist posted a simple photo of an out-of-order emergency phone on the Golden Gate Bridge, which sparked a heated discussion over suicide and the famed bridge.
