New Yorkers. They may not notice the bags of wet garbage lining their morning commute, the cockroach hiding behind their $8 box of cereal, or even blink an eye when an ambiguous liquid falls from above onto their shoulder, but they always keep an eye out for a buzzworthy scandal. Particularly when they can talk about it like they heard the latest from the New York Times, rather than Perez Hilton's Twitter feed. After all, there are two types of people in New York: the people that make the headlines and those who pretend to care. However, the city's scandals weren't always all about what celebrity ate gluten or how f*cked the L train is. Check out this guide for the scandals that rocked New York into the city equivalent of that jaded bitch who wears sunglasses on the subway.
