Susan Reimer 's column on elevator etiquette omits the cardinal rule of etiquette I saw riding a multitude of elevators over the years in New York City ( "Elevator etiquette dropping fast," May 16). In Class A office buildings like the Chrysler Building, men - in that hard-boiled, the faster-the-better city - have preserved an act of unexpected politeness. No gentleman steps into an elevator before a lady in New York. Ladies board first. How 1886! Eileen Pollock, Baltimore - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

Shocking bulletin from the Big Apple: New York is officially agog at the Jets signing of Tim Tebow. "Linsanity" is so yesterday. Now it's all about "Timsanity. " The New York media is reacting to the Jets' controversial signing in its usual under-stated way. The New York Daily News has a cartoon of the Statue of Liberty on its cover. The New York Post ran a front-page headline that blared: "GOD HIM!" And it's all Tim Tebow, all the time on talk radio and the TV sports show.

FACT: New York City's Bill de Blasio ran on a progressive platform of "tax the rich," government welfare-ism and strident unionism in his successful bid to succeed Mayor Michael Bloomberg. OPINION: Mr. de Blasio is the new hope and change for America's depressed liberals. He is the anti-Giuliani, an aggressive progressive intent on remaking NYC into a progressive mecca. It's all back to the future - a David Dinkins era redux replete with familiar class envy rhetoric. Such a vision should strike fear in the hearts of any and all who live, work, visit or play in the Big Apple.

The world's nicest NFL Player met the New York media Monday and charmed everyone in the room. And considering the room was the cavernous Jetsindoor practice facility, crammed with enough TV cameras, tape recorders and notebook-wielding reporters to cover a papal visit, this was no small feat. At probably the biggest news conference ever held for a backup quarterback, Tim Tebow said all the right things to the howling jackals of the press, as you knew he would. He was folksy and humble and open and aw-shucksy, just what you'd expect. How many times did he say he was "excited" to be a Jet?

Did you really doubt them? Did you watch the New York Yankees run circles around the Orioles on Sunday night in the first game of the Division Series and just assume that the O's would wilt at the first sign of the legendary Yankee mystique? If so, you probably need to “Buckle Up,” because they're headed for the Bronx all even in this best-of-five playoff and their World Series hopes are still very much alive. The rest of this round will be played at Yankee Stadium, beginning with Game 3 on Wednesday night, but don't let the address intimidate you because the Orioles probably won't.

ATLANTA -- I should have known better. For all the money I spent to make sure she enjoyed her first trip to New York City, her favorite thing was the revolving door at the hotel. Not The Nutcracker performed by the New York City Ballet. Never mind that it was George Balanchine's classic choreography or that the staging was awesome or that the ticket prices were stratospheric. It rated only fourth on her list. (And I think that was just to spare my feelings.) Still, she had a good time.

If hearing there's a Tim Burton exhibit at New York's Museum of Modern Art conjures up visions of a bunch of movie stills, costumes and assorted props — well, you're probably going to be disappointed by the show that wraps up its five-month stay in the Big Apple on April 26. But you'll probably be the only one who's disappointed. While plenty of pieces will call to mind movies like "Edward Scissorhands," "Batman" and "Alice In Wonderland," plenty have nothing to do with what's been shown on screen during Burton's 25 years as a feature-film director.

You know the beverage industry is running scared when it feels driven to mount an all-out campaign against a New York City law passed last year banning the sale of super-size sodas and sugary drinks. But it's beyond shameless when that effort includes arm-twisting support for its cause from a group representing the very people who would benefit most from the law. Yet that's what played out in a New York courtroom last week, when the city's NAACP branch took the industry's side by arguing that the ban on sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces, which was strongly endorsed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, would unfairly hurt residents in African-American communities.

Choosy diners know that among the myriad offerings in pay-by-weight buffets, they are likely to find much that is mediocre and maybe a few reliable comfort food picks. Big Apple Tree Café runs a pay-by buffet and operates a sandwich counter at Baltimore and South streets. The café serves breakfast and lunch in a quadrant of the city teeming with government and private office workers. It sits within a couple blocks of the U.S. Post Office and Courthouse, the MD District Courthouse and City Hall.

NEW YORK -- "Dubya" buttons and Gore/Lieberman pins written in Hebrew can't compete. Yankees hats and Mets jackets are the show-your-pride apparel of the moment in a city in a chest-thumping tizzy about the subway World Series. But button-seller Alan Carier, with typical New York City bravado, says, "I'm a capitalist -- I belong to the green party." Mr. Carier is not talking Ralph Nader, but the green bearing the likeness of Lincoln and Jackson. Since he began hawking Election 2000-related buttons in August, he says $1,000 is a good day in the business, with the Dubya (a.k.

To Kenny Callaghan, barbecue is like religion. "If you're Roman Catholic, you don't go to a synagogue," said Callaghan, the executive chef and barbecue czar at New York's Blue Smoke restaurant. "If you're from North Carolina, you don't understand what Memphis barbecue is. " As barbecue lovers know, different regions of the U.S. cherish their distinctive barbecue traditions, and Blue Smoke is famous for bringing those traditions together on its menu. In 2002, to help the various barbecue factions gain an appreciation for each other, Callaghan invited five renowned smokers and slatherers from around the country to showcase the best of their respective regions.

Snow birds may flock to Florida or other points south to escape winter's chill, but culture connoisseurs wrap up tight and head for Manhattan. Yes, autumn in New York conjures colorful foliage in Central Park and even a famous song — Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra sang of "glittering crowds and shimmering clouds" — but winter brings its own magic, especially for arts denizens. The city tallied a record 48.7 million visitors in 2010 and while the winter can be slower, many consider it high season here for lovers of music, dance, theater and museums, especially given the city's famous plethora of options.
