Biting the Big Apple

NEW YORK -- -- People are traveling to New York City with the aim of killing themselves in a phenomenon researchers call "suicide tourism," a Manhattan public health expert reported Monday.

Research reported in Washington at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Assn. suggests that one in 10 suicides committed in Manhattan since 1990 have involved nonresidents.

(My friend Ryan asks: Do they come to NY to die or are they so disappointed that they kill themselves?)

New York. The greatest city in the world!? =D
