Today it was announced, in the New York Times:
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is proposing to cut property taxes by roughly 5 percent and eliminate the city sales tax on clothing and footwear as New York enjoys the bounty from its booming economy and real estate market, city officials said yesterday.
Wait wait wait... repeat that! NYC hopes/plans to eliminate the city sales tax on clothing and footwear !?! When's the next flight?
Gosh, I *heart* New York.
