Want to know what New Yorkers kvetch about?
I couldn't resist this pictograph from an article in month's Wire magazine about the history of 311, the number to call when you are disturbed about something in the city. The service just celebrated its 100 millionth call, and they receive 50,000 calls a day! Why to do New York.
Do you remember the Maple Syrup Mystery smell that first hit midtown? The story in Wire shows how the City figured it out. --> http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/11/ff_311_new_york/all/1
