Hitotoki NYC launches with tales of celebrity sunburns and Vietnamese sandwiches.

As of midnight last night, Hitotoki New York is up and running, with eight excellent stories crossing three boroughs, and bringing together an unlikely cast of characters, well, unlikely in any place other than New York.
