If you want to know if you’ve got the makings of a CoolTown, see what people are willing to associate with your town. It’s not a coincidence that the biggest TV hits of the last three decades: The Cosby Show, Seinfeld and Friends, were all set in New York. Why? Because not much happens in the suburbs, except the 10:00 local news headlines, and that to me isn’t worth watching.
As for the Manhattan-based Man of Steel, since evidence shows that cities are safer per capita than suburbs, he can enjoy a reverse commute.
