Friday’s Headlines: #LGM Edition

Let’s play two.

Our editor took a well-deserved self-serving day off yesterday to watch the Mets in a double-header against the Nats, and he picked right because not only did the Metsies sweep, but it was a super-slow news day for the mainstream media. Let's get right to it:

    • Here's one argument to make when privileged elites complain that the city "is going to hell": The latest Census figures make it clear that people really want to live here. (NY Post, Gothamist)
    • Speaking about how people feel about the city, the Times is conducting an unscientific poll.
    • Carmageddon is upon us. (amNY)
    • In case you missed it, the Daily News followed our spellbinding map of how rich neighborhoods have better tree cover with an op-ed about how climate change is indeed a racial justice issue.
    • Lime, the scooter company, will have a "scooter academy" today from 10 a.m.-noon on the Yates Avenue Open Street (between Burke and Adee avenues. You gotta learn, Bronx residents, because scooter-share launches on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Streetsblog was jam packed with stories:
