Brick Underground released its annual holiday tipping guide today, based on a survey that the site does. A couple of the revelations:  in doorman buildings, 65% of residents tipped a total of $250 to $1,000 to doormen and super; and owners tend to tip more than renters. (Brick Underground)

Some of the confetti that flew at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was made up of shredded confidential documents that could be placed back together. It included police officers’ social security numbers and the identities of undercover officers in Nassau County. “The Nassau County Police Department told PIX11, via a written statement from its commanding officer for public information, Inspector Kenneth Lack, ‘The Nassau County Police Department is very concerned about this situation. We will be conducting an investigation into this matter as well as reviewing our procedures for the disposing of sensitive documents.'” (WPIX)
