The Heroes and Villains of New York City 

We are all familiar with the larger-than-life characters who exist in New York, rare creatures of shrewd vanity who, with chameleonic guile, rise to a certain kind of prominence--in the tabloids, on the blogs, on TV--and then descend just as quickly. These are not heroes; nor, really, are they villains. Heroes, to us at least, are those who make sacrifices (money, fame, security, time, in some cases, sanity) to make the world a better place. Villains, then, are the inverse, those who sacrifice a better world to gain money or fame or security... Obviously, there are many more New Yorkers who deserve to be lauded for their heroism or called out for their villainy, but these are the ones we have chosen.
