FEATURES
Single in the New City
Love by the Numbers Everything got more serious after September 11. Including, say the results of an exclusive New York Magazine-MetroTV poll, New Yorkers' attitudes about sex and relationships. Ariel Levy dissects the data. Sex Outside the City Thinking of escaping to the suburbs to find love and happiness? Read Susan Dominus's report from Connecticut's bar scene before you do. The Ultimate Aphrodisiac In Manhattan in the past couple of years, it seemed there was nothing sexier than a big bank account. Laurie Sandell looks at what's happened to those happy bachelors now that their bulging wallets have shrunk. Plus: In Search of the $60 Date, by Emily Gitter and Ben Kaplan. Blonde on Blonde Candace Bushnell is as thin and stylish as her TV alter ego, Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw. And as she goes through her life, clubbing, dining, smoking, drinking, dating, she can provide the same kind of running voice-over about the meaning of it all. Ariel Levy visits the night princess and finds that not much has changed since the Candace show debuted, back in the days of Studio 54. "And that's," Candace says, "a good thing."
