NYC praised as most vegan-friendly in US

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Manhattan's skyline never looked so appetizing.

The famed skyline was rendered in a vegetable sculpture Wednesday as part of an award given by an animal welfare group.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals declared New York the nation's most vegan-friendly city. Actor Alan Cumming was on hand for a City Hall presentation and praised the city's commitment to vegan restaurants.

PETA commissioned the vegetable skyline, complete with a Chrysler Building made of radishes.

Several City Council members also attended the presentation. One suggested the council adopt "Meatless Mondays" at City Hall to highlight healthy eating.
