NYC Stoops and Horse Manure”

Many suspect it, but I have definitive proof that people’s minds really are in the gutter.


In almost 2,000 posts over 3 years covering everything from Twin Cities real estate to Federal Reserve monetary policy to geothermal energy, the City Lakes blog post getting the most attention on Google at the moment is this one: ‘Manhattan Stoops and Horse Manure.’

The post, discussing an anecdote from the book SuperFreakonomics, is ranked #1 on Google for that (admittedly unusual) search query.

Try it.

(Odder still: the last flurry of hits on the City Lakes blog looking for those key words were all from Poland, about 6 a.m. Central earlier today.)
