Great news about Armondo's lobster! If you are a neon lobster enthusiast, you should check out Lobster House on City Island for the king daddy of them all. They even have free valet parking for your boat.

Important information from Gothamist today about the latest census report. I've not had a chance to check the original report, but appears that the wealthy in New York got wealthier, and I suspect there are more of them. This confirms what I've noticed for the past year, that the economic crisis really hasn't derailed the great project of turning this city into a playground for the rich.
