Room service for a city
By Dave Winer on Wednesday, July 07, 2010 at 2:06 AM.

A picture named bike.jpgOkay it was 103 degrees today. permalink

And as I write this, at 2AM, it's 87. permalink

The single-word description of summer weather here is: Sucks. permalink

But there's something that compensates. permalink

Every apartment in NY, and there are a lot of them, has room service. permalink

And get this -- it's cheap and the food is good! <img src="> permalink

At first I felt guilty for using room service at all. In the various places I've lived delivery of something as mundane as food is not only rare, it's unheard-of. In NY, you can place a $10 food order, and it will be at your door in 1/2 hour. To me, half-native and half-transplant, that's pretty amazing. No, it's very amazing. permalink

On another note, Jeff Cheney, an old friend from SF, swears by Village Pizza on 8th Ave and 13th St. I tried it a couple of months ago and still preferred Ray's on 6th Ave and 11th St. But I stopped in there after an apointment today and got a meatball hero. It was so freakishly hot outside, the sandwich was still warm when I got home. And what a sandwich! A masterpiece. I couldn't believe how good it was. And the slice I had while I waited was pretty awesome too.  permalink

I think what's happening as my initial awe-of-NY fades, it's replaced by another level of awe. How many levels are there? I'll let you know. permalink
