Thanks for reading this week's SN&R.

On the cover: David Watts Barton always wanted to move to New York City. Last year, after half a century in Sacramento, he finally did. And, of course, he bumped into dozens of former 916ers living in the 212; this weeks' feature story profiles former Sacramentans in NYC--and what both city's can learn from each other.

Also this week: Cosmo Garvin profiles Sacramento's astronaut, Raheem F. Hosseini looks at Sacramento city school district's plan to shut down 11 elementary schools, Jonathan Mendick goes noodle for ramen, and Andrew Bell hangs with up-and-coming woman emcee Century Got Bars.
