Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer had the unfortunate realization earlier this week that many of the bus signs along Fifth Avenue identify the cross streets as being on the west side, and his epiphany has set off something of an existential crisis over Central Park. The Times looks into whether it falls on the UES or UWS, in the process questioning the provenance of another UES institution, the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The result is a lot of consternation and one bombshell headline, "Central Park Appears to Be on Upper West Side." [NYT; previously]
