While much of New York City turned to the tabloids this morning to read more about the Upper West Side preschoolers apparently stabbed to death by their nanny (who then turned the knife on herself), the real action was all happening elsewhere: at UrbanBaby, where dozens of superrich New York parents have been dishing out theories and advice for 18 hours.
UrbanBaby is the 4chan of rich New York parents — a fast-moving, anonymous, and troll-heavy message board dedicated to yuppie childrearing — and it would be hard to invent a subject more perfect for its commenters than the tragic death of two kids at the hands of their nanny. But it's more than just car crash-style entertaining — it's also useful!
