Who’s your favorite New Yorker, living or dead, real or fictional?
What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in New York?
Sacco Pizza (819 Ninth Avenue, between 54th and 55th) is most consistently my favorite place in a hurry. Low-rent but the best thin-crust pizza in the city.
In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job?
Compile, write, and edit the day’s news, while hopefully influencing young people on our staff.

Brandon Davis Haunts New York … Permanently?As if the violence in Union Square and excess of exposed, mottled flesh on the streets didn’t make this Halloween scary enough, Brandon Davis was apparently also haunting New York. The Daily News knew for sure it was the Oilcrotch, and not someone wearing what would have been a mind-bogglingly brilliant costume, because they saw the dude terrorizing an employee at the New York Costume shop.
After one of the bimbos with bratty Brandon told him the feathery, glittery mask he was trying on looked bad, we personally saw him throw it across the counter, hitting the cashier.
The News hopefully suggests that Davis won’t be in town for long, but didn’t he just say he was moving here to start an art dealership? Which means maybe he wasn’t visiting at all, maybe he has already moved in. Mwahahahhahahaha. Now that’s spooky.
