Zee Blizzard of 2010

As it turns out, there’s a bit of snow in the Northeast right now. So much, in fact, that news stations have taken to calling it Blizzageddon, Snowpacolypse, or, the PC version courtesy of CNBC, The 2010 Winter Storm of Epic Proportions. Whatever branding you fancy, it’s pretty clear that NYC is buried. All airports […]

Summer Sunsets on the High Line

When people think of New York City parks they think Central Park, naturally.  Last summer, however, one of the most unique parks in the world opened on the West side of our little island.

The City of Summer Street Fairs

NYC: Umbrella Graveyard

Thousands of NYC umbrellas died this weekend. Trash cans and dumpsters overflowed with the deformed rain shields, as it has been raining since Thursday night, only stopping intermittently today and yesterday.  Hurricane-like winds blew my friends and I down streets and I found myself screaming like a 12-year old girl at a Justin Bieber concert.

Spring, is that you?

In New York City there is an overwhelming amount of skepticism.  We are skeptical of the cabbies that transport us around town, the supposed market rally, and the dentist that says we have two cavities. And right now we are skeptical of the weather. The weather has been in the 50-degree range since Saturday but […]
