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 thought it was awwww-some that their street artist pal Posterchild asked his girlfriend to marry him by means of street art.
  • Seattlest was thankful for all the ways that Washington sports doesn't suck.

  • LAist was all about being thankful this week, and our editors gave much of their thanks to Los Angeles itself.
  • DCist scratched their heads when a crazy guy stopped traffic downtown to demand $200 million while standing atop a U-Haul van, throwing Molotov cocktails.
  • SFist questioned this footage showing a BART cop using (excessive?) force again.
  • Bostonist's outing to a Sonic Youth show was ruined by bad sound, so we came up with a plan for better rock shows in 5 steps.
  • Chicagoist gave thanks for being alerted to the newest epidemic sweeping schools in the Midwest: ball-tapping.
  • Gothamist was stunned when a man was killed for a seat on the D train and wondered about being locked in a subway care with a murderer.
  • Londonist had a preview of the clean and spacious new £800 million ticket hall at Kings Cross, before it inevitably becomes deluged and dirtied by hundreds of thousands of commuters.
