Around NYC is a roundup of noteworthy local stories the StreetEasy editorial team read this week:

The late, great Anthony Bourdain on New York City and his favorite places therein (Eater NY) — The onetime Upper East Side resident had a typically unvarnished take on his former home: “For an area as affluent as mine, and presumably as sophisticated, it’s a wasteland for food.”

A list of 101 things to love about NYC … from 1979 (Gothamist) — Surfaced from The New York Times by Gothamist, it contains such timeless nuggets as “Being nostalgic about things in New York that never were so great.”

Those beautiful subway ads celebrating Pride and condemning bigotry have returned (Curbed NY) — “No bigotry, hatred, or prejudice allowed at this station at any time.” Sounds right to us.

The high price of being Kate Spade (The New York Times) — Columnist Ginia Bellafante remembers another great New Yorker lost this week, whose brand “rejected both the old hierarchies and entitlements and the newer tensions of the meritocracy in favor of an ethos that implied you were already someone — here and now just as you were.”

The best and worst neighborhoods for street parking in Brooklyn (Brick Underground) — Should you decide to torture yourself looking for street parking, this guide will help you narrow your search.

How the cardboard box was accidentally invented in NYC (6sqft) — Well, this is an unexpected addition to the list of things invented in NYC.
