One-bathroom man goes to town: Yesterday, the New York Times offered a profile of de Blasio family values.
De Blasio has announced that he and his family will live in Gracie Mansion, not in their row house in Brooklyn’s Park Slope. In a standard bit of piddle, the Times was a bit concerned about what that decision meant.
Is de Blasio really a man of the people? Inquiring minds want to know!
For ourselves, we were struck by a sidebar chart, entitled “Comparing 2 Houses.” Part of the chart said this:
NUMBER OF BATHROOMSSay what? This family of four has been living with only one bathroom?
PARK SLOPE: One
GRACIE MANSION: Eight
Given our knowledge of High Gotham Values, we’d call that a notable point.
