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:
Gothamist learned that Vespa owners are resorting to illegal measures (okay, scraping off their vehicle ID numbers) to keep their scooters on the street, not that it'll help.
Seattlest indulged in some Washington State-sponsored earthquake disaster porn.
Torontoist checked out the planned designs for a forthcoming subway station in the northernmost part of their city, which looks an awful lot like how people in the 1960s imagined things like subway stations would look today.
Bostonist celebrated our beer epiphanies, just in time for pumpkin brews.
Shanghaiist worried about the state of Chinese youth after a cellphone video showing a vicious schoolyard beating in Shanghai was uploaded to the internet. According to one survey, one in four kids in China have faced similar violent incidents.
LAist found out just how crazy the subway in LA can get thanks to a video called "Crackhead Hooker Maces Kid."
Londonist attended a vigil against hate crimes, prompted by the recent death of the victim of a homophobic attack.
DCist visited the Washington Humane Society to get some ridiculously adorable photos of some of the pets currently there waiting to be adopted.
