I think it is a sarcastic reference to New Yorkers' careless attitude towards others. It's a written form of Sienfeld's last episode.

You think they were just playing with the Metropolitan Diary editor?

I have never met a real New Yorker who bought anything at Magnolia Bakery.

Where is the Magnolia Bakery anyway, and why is it iconic? I'd never heard of it until that Lazy Sunday video from SNL, and until I read the above letter from this bad person I hadn't heard of it since.

Yes, I think the Editor just didn't catch on the underlying sarcasm. They were probably visiting and might have been on the receiving end of the indifference.

The original Magnolia is on Bleecker & West 11th St, but they've opened up several branches since then. It got famous from product placement on Sex in the City, which was a television show back in the 90s and early 00s.
