    4 Aug 2014 | 8:30 am
    Twitter told me that Coolhaus was parked next to Bian Dang last week, and when I saw how long the Bian Dang line was, I decided I would have ice cream for lunch because I’m an adult and that’s what adults do: eat whatever they want for lunch. Right? Right… even if that’s a $6 [...]

    A reader sent to me this photo of a lovely old Delicatessen sign that was uncovered during construction on a storefront at Broadway and 103rd. Can't make out the first word—that is, the name of the place. Lovely font on the sign.
  • ANOTHER Giambelli's Memory

    Brooks of Sheffield
    25 Jul 2014 | 3:49 pm
    I have to say, Giambelli's must have been some place. I wrote about it's closing, after 50 years on E. 50th Street, five years ago. And the comments and memories keep flowing in. Makes me hurt inside that I never went there. This one came the other day. It's from "Peniche" in New Zealand (!). Just read and marvel:...We used to dine at Giambelli regularly in the mid 1970s. One evening we arrived to find the restaurant gutted for renovation. As we turned to leave a diminutive, but immaculate gentleman on the sidewalk introduced himself. 'I am Francesco Giambell...please!' and indicated a…
  • The History of the Valley Candle Company

    Brooks of Sheffield
    3 Jul 2014 | 1:00 am
    A couple years ago, I posted an item about how the television series "Miami Vice," in 1985, was allowed to blow up up an old business on Columbia Street called the Valley Candle Company.I didn't know much about the company when I wrote that post. Since then, however, I've been contacted by a descendent of the company's founder. That was Saverio DellaValle, pictured below. (Hence, the name of the business.) Saverio came to Brooklyn from Naples in 1905. He made religious candles and delivered them to the churches in NYC. An open-minded businessman, he also made candles for the…

    A reader who has been very good about spying old wooden phone booths in the City and sending me shots of them, has done so again!This was taken inside the Harmonie Club at 4 E. 60th Street, a club I did not even know existed. The Harmonie Club was founded in 1852 and has been in its handsome McKim Mead and White designed building on 60th since 1904. "Jacket and Tie are Required. Shorts, sneakers or tennis shoes are not permitted at any time." My kind of place.

  • An Extended Vacation

    Fred Wilson
    14 Aug 2014 | 3:29 am
    Starting tomorrow and for the next six weeks, the Gotham Gal and I will be on an extended vacation. Every year I take the last two weeks of the summer at the beach with my family to celebrate my birthday and take advantage of the last days of the summer. I will be doing that starting tomorrow. Then in late August, we drop our youngest child, Josh, off at college. That moment will mark the end of a very important part of our lives, the active in-person parenting phase, and the start of another phase where it will be mostly the two of us living together without our children at home. Neither of…
  • Graffiti

    Fred Wilson
    13 Aug 2014 | 5:09 am
    I love Graffiti. I realize that at some level, graffiti is vandalism and represents disrespect of property rights. And it doesn’t feel great when our building gets tagged. But there’s something about sitting outside eating on the street staring at street art. This was our view on Monday night. Graffiti is creativity expressed in public, for all to see. It’s rebellious. It’s leaving your mark on the world. I feel most at home in cities and neighborhoods that are filled with Graffiti. I think there’s a linkage between creativity, innovation, and rebellion. And…

    I wrote this in 2011. I think it’s as true today as it was then. It’s interesting that Marc Andreessen, in the video I posted over the weekend, also links the word Bubble in his mind to the Internet bubble that we all lived through. I guess for a certain cohort of investors, that is a very definitive moment in our lives that we will always be scarred by. ——————————— In all the posts over the past year or so outlining my thoughts on the financing and valuation environment in the internet sector, I’ve avoided…

    If you had read Satoshi’s white paper back in October 2008, you would have said “there is no way this can work.” There were literally hundreds of reasons Bitcoin could not and would not emerge as a new form of money. Coming up on six years later, Bitcoin has overcome many of those issues and every day looks more and more like some form of financial value. What remains unclear, though, is if Bitcoin will predominantly be a store of value (like gold) or a medium of exchange (like the dollar), or both (the best case for Bitcoin bulls). And one important factor in determining…

    There is only one company to date that the Gotham Gal has made an angel investment and subsequently USV has invested in and that is Kitchensurfing. I was not involved in either investment decision. The Gotham Gal made the angel investment herself. And because I was conflicted, by virtue of her investment, I recused myself from USV’s investment decision. So I don’t know as much about this company as many others in the USV portfolio. But I know this much, it’s a fantastic service. Last night we had a dozen people at our beach house. The Gotham Gal is a great cook but she…

    Uglyduckling is the newest addition to the many adorable shops and eateries along Smith St. This street is a favorite of mine — so naturally when searching for a nice place to grab a drink/grub after a crazy week at work, my friend and I wandered into Cobble Hill. Only 2 weeks old, the Uglyduckling offers a diverse selection of American /Gastropub cuisine as well as a nice wall of craft beers on tap. It has a cool, hip vibe with the mismatch wooden panels on the wall, giant tv screens, vintage lighting and chalkboard artwork to name a few. There’s not a whole lot of seating but…

During their interview, the band revealed that they were indeed working on new music and even putting together a fourth album! The next album will be a little more personal, but with a different sound. Niall stated: “I think it’s going to be a little bit more edgy. But obviously we feel like we’ve got some really good songs and we are happy.”  Meanwhile, Liam added: “We’ve all taken a hand in the writing this time, and we’ve…

    Taxi drivers will get a chance to test out new safety technology as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero pedestrian initiative. The Taxi and Limousine Commission Thursday backed a one-year study on black box data records to log hard braking and speeding, a driver alert system, automatic speed limits, and cameras in the city’s fleet. “While most TLC drivers are safe drivers already, they drive so many miles each year and are such a big part of the city’s traffic flow that any improvements to their driving habits could help change the tone of driving in New York…

    Postcard of Thomas Edison with an early phonograph, ca. 1888.Where would we be without Thomas Edison? As James noted over on his personal blog the other day (which you can read at http://jamesnevius.blogspot.com), Edison is responsible for so many inventions that define modern life: the light bulb, movie projector, and phonograph among them.Today marks the anniversary of Edison's introduction of the wax cylinder phonograph in London in 1888. At a press conference there, Edison played a recording of Sir Arthur Sullivan's "The Lost Chord," presumably on a machine very much like the one Edison…

    Fans of the Postcard Thursday feature will realize that this is the second time we've featured Grant's Tomb. But as pointed out in our first article, Grant's Tomb was one of the most popular tourist attractions in late 19th-century New York, so it's not surprising that it featured in a number of different postcard views.We're highlighting the memorial again because yesterday was the 129th anniversary of President Grant's death on July 23, 1885. The tomb you see in this postcard is not, actually, the original. After some wrangling about whether New York was going to be the the general's final…

    On July 17, 1938, Douglas Corrigan took off from Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. He'd filed a flight plan intending to fly west to Long Beach, California (from which he'd arrived a week earlier). Instead, Corrigan flew east and, supposedly due to a faulty compass and thick fog, found himself 26 hours into the flight approaching Ireland instead of Long Beach. The stunt earned him the nickname "Wrong Way" Corrigan and a place in history.To this day, it is unknown if Corrigan made the transatlantic flight by mistake or if he had been planning to pull the stunt for some time. In 1935, he'd been…

Foster Grant was also the first company to correlate wearing sunglasses with the idea of “being cool” and in the 1960′s they were worn by celebrities including Elvis Presley, Anthony Quinn, Raquel Welch, and Mia Farrow.

While there are lots of wonderful things for us to experience together in NYC now that she's older, like edgy museum exhibits and Broadway shows, at times I miss the days when she went gaga for anything frilly, sparkly or fancy.

A new report shows that on a per-square-foot basis, New York is half price compared to some other favorite cities of the rich. The Knight Frank Wealth Report shows that the tiny, tony principality of Monaco remains the most world’s expensive real estate market. The report found…

If you are in the mood for an outdoor activity, the Downtown Boathouse and Manhattan Community Boathouse operate three piers along the Hudson River and one on Governors Island.  The locations come fully equipped with single and double kayaks, life jackets and they even offer lockers to store your personal items such as phone and wallet (free of charge, of course.)

    By Seth Fera-Schanes New York City restaurant week occurs twice a year; once in the late winter/early spring and a second time during late summer.  Due to the popularity of these events, each restaurant week runs approximately three weeks which definitely helps with getting reservations. The premise is simple, participating restaurants offer a special three course menu and prices are set at $25 for lunch and $38 for dinner.  Note that many places will also offer wine pairings or “supplements” to a meal which will increase the cost.  For the uninitiated, a supplement to a meal…

    By Denise Oliveira Getting a free haircut and color in New York City sounds impossible, right? Not so. If you’re willing to act as a ‘hair model’ for a stylist-in-training, you can get high quality services at brand name salons including Aveda, Bumble & Bumble and Cutler. Each salon has its own rules for who can participate in the ‘hair model’ program (for example, some want curly hair, some want colored hair) and how much it costs (at many, the customer pays absolutely nothing, and at others, there is a small charge.) Of course, you have to be somewhat…

    Peter Greenberg, “The Travel Detective” and the Travel Editor for CBS News, is no doubt a man of the world—who also keeps a foothold on Long Island. I was curious to hear this multiple Emmy-winning investigative reporter’s take on “the island” (Long Island) I know well… about the good and perhaps not so good. Q. You have a house on Fire Island. Do you have other connections to Long Island? A. Well, you can’t have a place on Fire Island without being connected to Long Island.

    Wilmington, Delaware’s Riverfront Wilmington, Delaware, had always been that Amtrak station between Philadelphia and Baltimore that I’d never visited. Until now. Surprisingly, a three-mile ride from downtown Wilmington is a transformation into the wide-open picturesque Brandywine Valley—the nearly immediate scenery change is akin to opening a curtain into a new pastoral world. Montchanin’s “barn” The Brandywine Valley Village of Montchanin is a step back into a simple, elegant time in American history—and the DuPont family legacy.

    Girl carrying clouds in El Hato, Guatemala Rarely does a written story make me laugh out loud, but “The Day I Did Not Meet Kenya’s Prime Minister” did just that. So, I emailed the author. A few months later, I met Luke Maguire Armstrong, a guy who, in the midst of hitchhiking from Chile to Alaska, got happily stuck in Guatemala for four years. Since then, we meet whenever he breezes through New York City. I wrote about life on the road while traveling pretty much constantly for 20 years until mellowing into “home life,” which now means taking 10 disconnected trips a year—with each…

    Bermuda is a quintessentially British island of palms. It was there in 1999 that an eccentric self-styled Bermudian traffic supervisor taught me something about crafting a singular life mission. Located far enough off the coast of North Carolina to forego NASCAR fanaticism but close enough to New York to attract weekend warriors, the breezy 21-mile fishhook island showcases pink sand beaches separated by limestone cliff-rimmed coves—and wealth. Churches and colorful stone and cedar architecture distinguish the rolling landscape, while convoys of white-collar tourist duos live out…
