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:
Torontoist took a look at their city hall's new green roof; when it's finished in the spring, it'll be the whole city's largest publicly accessible one.
Bostonist interviewed John Hodgman about his role in the Boston Book Festival.
Shanghaiist found out that a lot of people in China have a lot of trouble defining what "communism" means.
Chicagoist was a little surprised when an atheist billboard went up near downtown and nobody seemed to notice.
Seattlest heard and was saved by the Gospel of Jay-Z.
LAist went from the sublime to the ridiculous: They went day trippin' to the gorgeous Channel Islands National Park and found a 5-star Yelp review for Top Chef Fabio Viviani's not-even-open-yet restaurant.
SFist was sad to see a second dead blue whale wash ashore in two weeks.
Londonist celebrated its 5th birthday with copious cupcakes and general revelry.
DCist followed the ongoing controversy of the Bloomingdale neighborhood's 'Boxer Girl' mural, which neighbors either seem to love or hate.
