Even when Gothamist is half way around the world, we cannot get away from timely NYC topics. Yesterday, we wrote about the MTA's demand that F Line Bagels remove any MTA-related signage and decor from the premises, plus pay a fine, and a few hours later, we wandered into a "New York style deli" in a trendy Hong Kong neighborhood... that had a huge subway map and Metrocard behind the counter! Of course, the subway map is on its side, which makes it pretty difficult to really read, but we're sure that if the MTA's lawyers could find a way to convince an Asian country that copyright infringement was wrong, they would.
