Miscellaneous 11.17

Fellow seekers of hygge,

Marathon runners snake through streets lined with trees, ablaze with autumn leaves. Mayoral candidates court the citizenry, reminding us to exercise our sacred democratic mandate at the local level. Commonwealth expats affix to their fair-isle sweaters pins that resemble the bright red poppies of Flanders Field, in remembrance of the Great War.

November has come to New York City. Miscellaneous — Athletics’ no-frills round-up of the cultural items that inspire us each month — is here to spice up your autumn like a cup of fresh chai.

Stay tuned for more globetrotting editions of Miscellaneous in the coming months.
