David Byrne: One Percenters Are Killing NYC's Unique Sex Smell: Gothamist

Former Talking Head and timeless Renaissance man David Byrne has written a cogent essay about how New York City is increasingly becoming an unaffordable playground for the very rich, with little room for a thriving middle class to call the city home. Like many of us, Byrne’s a little freaked out about upscale homogenization of the city, which is killing its “multi-ethnic makeup… other cities might be cleaner, more efficient or comfortable, but New York is funky, in the original sense of the word—New York smells like sex.” All this time we thought that was only the river.
