What a Zoo

The New Yorker's Patricia Marx investigated what happened when she brought unusual pets (a turtle, a snake, etc.) to iconic public places (The Frick, Balthazar, Chanel). Turns out, they get let in, and at a real estate open house in Soho, the broker didn't bat an eye: "The real-estate agent ... went on about the granite countertop and the home office that could be converted to a nursery, but ignored the snake, which had got stuck in my hair tie. Maybe a serpent is one of those things that it's best to put up with when you're trying to sell a $5.2-million three-bedroom." [NY]
