Best things to do in NYC this winter…

I think that cabin fever may be the easiest thing to catch for New Yorkers during the winter, especially winter 2014!  Temperatures in the low 30′s, grey skies, inches of snow followed by days of rain, it’s all enough to keep anyone hiding inside for the season.  New York City’s best iced tea wants to […]

Iced Tea in Brooklyn — Bboy Style

Brooklyn’s best breakdancers deserve the best iced tea in Brooklyn.  Enter, Heart of Tea.   Not to brag, but we did something magnificent with our final weekend in August.  Mind-blowingly good.  We drank lemon iced tea and had a hell of a time at the Lucky 7 Bboy Battle in Brooklyn.   Usually, you’ve gotta […]

Best of 2012: New Songs for New York, 6-10 Explained

Let’s start with the New Songs for New York playlist:   Spotify is missing The National, but it’s a complete list otherwise and one you can absorb easily as you walk East 7th.  So do.  This part of our New York list, 6-10, is the cool down.  It’s quieter.  Not that we want you any colder […]

Happy Weekend: Johnny Depp Makes Grilled Cheese and Weezer

This is not your happy weekend post

But it should still make for some happiness.   Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, 1965.  Comeon.  You love that.  We love that.  But we daresay our Happy Weekend image is even more happy-making.  It may or may not include Johnny Depp.  (It will.)  There may or may not be a song accompaniment.  We haven’t […]

A Picture and a Song, Manhattan

Thinking about making this a feature of sorts, but the kind of quiet feature that speaks for itself.  A picture and a song.  Listen and look and think your own thoughts.   First, Cat Power’s Manhattan, off her new album Sun:     Then:   You and your secret life.

Happy Weekend, a Musical Toast

Our new Lady New York. Graffiti, skyline, such great heights. And she’s got a dose of cowgirl in her. It’s a strange, fun, almost off-putting video. But it’s also weirdly compelling, the kinda basic, old school visuals when paired with the Now sound.  Which is about right–that’s our New York. Go dancing tonight.  Hydrate, but […]
