    Maybe the Jersey pollution has given y'all a better immune system.

    We get our topflight immune systems from riding the subway. It's like a giant mobile Petri dish. Back above ground, breathing a healthy blend of formaldehyde, napthalene and roasted garlic probably helps preserve us.

    Without reading the article, I'd give four reasons:

    1) you can walk everywhere and often you have to walk quickly

    2) proximity to health care -- you can usually find a doctor withing a couple of blocks of work and/or home, so going to the doctor isn't as big of a deal.

    3) tons of gyms within a few blocks of work or home.

    4) easy to find healthy food at any hour.

    Not true. The last unicorn in New York was gunned down outside Umberto's Clam House in 1971.

    A life worse than death? Only on the days Katz's runs out of brisket.
