    After a banner year that included several local store openings, Organic Avenue is scaling back. The Long Island City-based company is laying off 38 employees from the kitchens where its all of its juices and most of its food is made, and a source says it's because of upcoming menu revisions. Apparently, "the changes in the menu require the realignment of the brand's resources." [Crain's]

  • Has Your NYPD Precinct Ramped Up Enforcement Under Vision Zero?

    Stephen Miller
    26 Jan 2015 | 1:23 pm
    Which police precincts are devoting greater attention to traffic enforcement under Vision Zero? Streetsblog crunched the numbers from NYPD to find out how different precincts stacked up in 2014 compared to previous years. The stats show that police are, in general, devoting more resources to enforcing the most dangerous traffic violations on surface streets. But the baseline level of enforcement was so low that many precincts are still issuing fewer than one speeding or failure-to-yield ticket per day. Since August 2011, NYPD has released monthly totals of moving violations, broken down by…

Also, why do people think it’s cute when a dog rides transit on its own, but when kids walk by themselves in their own neighborhood, it’s labeled neglect? We discuss parenting and the growth of confidence that comes from going out on your own for the first time. Finally, we have some news about the future of Talking Headways — while Streetsblog can…

    With more than two feet of snow expected to accumulate on NYC streets in the next couple of days, this city is about to get blanketed by nature’s traffic calming. Sneckdown fever won’t be far behind. To get things started, we’re reposting the classic 2011 Streetfilm that introduced the phrase “snowy neckdown,” a concept that really caught fire last year with the debut of the #sneckdown hashtag. One thing to keep in mind is that sneckdowns are not at their most photogenic during the snowstorm or immediately afterward. It takes a few days, maybe a couple of weeks,…

Inside, scads of original details appear untouched, including what looks like wood work with the original finish, and everything looks to be in tip-top condition. We like the 1880s fireplace, bold wood work and ironwork, and the sleek modern kitchen with door going out to a deck. There’s also a pier mirror, central air, two wet bars, original shutters, and elaborate built-ins. Set up as an owner’s triplex over a two-bedroom garden rental, it looks slightly narrow in…

Acme Smoked Fish, a standard-bearer of the form and certainly the largest producer in New York City, makes over 5,000 pounds of whitefish salad every day. Wolphram Alpha tells me that's the equivalent of 1.3 small cars or 40% of an elephant. Of fish-mayo salad. Every. Day. Read More

Seed, Later Stage, etc. all mean different things to different people. That’s where the confusion comes from. I wrote a post explaining how we think about seed last June. Here’s the important part from that: The first step you need to climb is building a product, getting it into the market, and finding product market fit. I think that’s what seed financing should be used for. The second step you need to climb is to hire a small…
  • Some Thoughts On Seed Investing

    Fred Wilson
    25 Jan 2015 | 6:01 am
    We (USV) raised a new venture fund at the start of last year and started investing it in the spring of 2014. It is called USV 2014. We have made six investments in it so far and five of them are seed investments. That’s a very high ratio for USV and we do not expect that ratio to continue over the life of the fund. In fact our next investment will be a classic Series A so we are already lowering the ratio. But it is a bit of a return to form for USV as half of the initial investments in our first fund (USV 2004) were made at the seed stage. In our core early stage funds (as opposed to…

    The entrance of Uber into the ridesharing market disrupted more than just the taxi cab industry, it has shaken the financial ecosystem that was supported by those who owned and loaned money for the once-coveted taxi medallion business. It’s a trend seen over and over again in the platform businesses: new players enter and destabilize one side of the platform, which creates the beginnings of the death spiral from which some never recover. The hit to the prices of taxi medallions during the past year alone shows the true impact of what happens when a free-enterprise system joins an industry…

  • NYC Taxi Medallion Prices Crashing, Down Over 25 Percent

    7 Jan 2015 | 1:30 pm
    Taxi medallion prices continue to fall under pressure from new taxi competitors, including Uber. New York City individual taxi medallions, whose owners must drive a taxi for at least part of the year, fell to $805,000, down 23 percent from 2013’s peak of $1.05 million. Corporate medallions, which may be owned in fleets, traded on average at $950,000, down 28 percent from their peak. Many cities require the purchase of a license called a medallion to operate a taxicab. Restricted supply of medallions has caused them to rise in price for decades, though prices have declined in the last two…

    21 Jan 2015 | 8:01 am
    This year, 2015, marks the 50th anniversary of one of the pivotal moments of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and '60s, the five-day, 54-mile march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, led by Martin Luther King, Jr., and completed by thousands of enormously courageous individuals, both black and white, local Alabamans and from all over the country. Here are two terrific ways to commemorate, and celebrate, the historic Selma March, both of which, by the way, also serve as excellent "primers" of that era: the people, the tactics, the reasons for the fight.
