    A proposal by LAVA would add curved balconies to Sydney's Sirius apartments, a housing project that may soon be put on the market and be threatened with demolition.

    30 Jul 2015 | 12:30 pm
    The world's first "5¢ Woolworth Brothers Store" opened on 18 July, 1879 in Harrisburg, PA, the brainchild of Charles Sumner "Sum" Woolworth and his brother Frank.

When the Montréal-based retail tech company Lightspeed found that it had outgrown its former digs, it sought new space in the 1,000,000-square-foot Gare Viger, a former chateau that, after a developer's renovation, has become a pretty rad mixed-use workspace. Designed by 19th-century architect, the Chateau Viger was once an operating train station and hotel. In 2012, a developer acquired the site from the city of Montreal (which purchased the building in 2006) and turned it into a center of commerce and business. Lightspeed's offices…

The challenge for the architects wasn't the natural environment but the park's not-so-meditative function: recreational tourism. Their solution was a winding pathway and plaza that separate the chapel from everyday tourist traffic and can host large ceremonies. The chapel, named the Capilla Santa Ana, uses its single gabled hall to frame a far-reaching vista of rolling hills. The interior was…

  • Our Culture Is Dead. (No, Really)

    Douglas McLennan

    Thanks to the “massification” or “democratization” of culture, we can all claim to be cultured even if we have never read a book, listened to a symphony, or attended an art gallery. Eliot said that “higher culture” is the domain of an elite. Vargas Llosa is in favor of putting an end to “morally repugnant” elites which are at variance with our egalitarian ideals. In doing so, however, we achieve “a pyrrhic victory” whereby we dumb down and become too all-inclusive: “everything is culture and nothing is.”

    “It is an oft-repeated idea that philosophy in its modern, professional form has become detached from what was, in ancient times, a founding ideal: to teach people how to live well. In today’s university, the emphasis is on the search for the truth about whichever subject lies at hand, regardless of how, if at all, such truths change what you do when you leave the classroom. So while students often report finding philosophy “therapeutic,” they do so in passing, somewhat guiltily.”

    Eater NY critic Robert Sietsema gives two new places a first glimpse. The public’s appetite for small expensive pizzas cooked in a wood oven along Neapolitan lines seems only to be growing. When these pies first appeared here in 1996 at the Flatiron’s La Pizza Fresca, they engendered little response from New Yorkers, who thought their own bigger, lusher, cheaper pies were sufficient. But gradually, these pizzas caught on, with their smokiness, glove-like softness, and more austere and refined toppings. Soon, such newfangled pizzerias as Franny’s, Una Pizza Napoletana, Motorino, and…

    A city hearing yesterday brought the controversy to a head. New York diners might see little salt shakers on menus at chain restaurants as soon as December. Earlier this summer, Mayor De Blasio proposed a measure, which would require chain restaurants to post a salt icon next to menu items that exceed the daily recommended limit of 2,300 milligrams (about a teaspoon worth) of salt. The proposal, which is part of the city's efforts to reduce the premature mortality rate by 25 percent by 2040, has stirred controversy since it was first introduced — but things became especially heated…

Tomorrow marks the start of Oak's "deep summer" clearance sale at their Bond Street store, where merchandise—including pieces from recent and past seasons, as well as one-of-a-kind-samples—for up to 80% off retail prices. Last year, at least the first time around (because they held a second sale last year), we found funky pieces from Cheap Monday, Kai Aakmann, and Jonathan Simkhai at legitimately affordable prices, though they weren't super accessible in bins on the floor.

The little store on 54th Street has been in sale mode since the beginning of the month, but this final phase upcoming phase is worth the wait: Last time shoes went up to 75% off, prices started at $195 and most of the merchandise was around $250. True, that's more expensive than their semi-annual sample sales, but shopping the boutique is a whole lot less scary and won't have beastly lines. If you stop by next week,…

It was a Faustian bargain that put some transit and safe streets advocates at odds. But Tom Fucoloro at Seattle Bike Blog reports that Inslee found another way.

But with cost declines (Albert’s chart) and carrying cost declines (my chart), solar makes more sense today than ever. The other chart worth looking at is home energy prices over time. Your payback on solar depends a lot on how much you are paying for alternative sources of energy. This part of the analysis is not as easy. It depends on what kind of…

  • Growth vs Retention

    Fred Wilson

    Entrepreneurs always ask what the one number they should focus on for raising money. I always say “90 day retention numbers for your acquisition cohorts”. There’s a common view in silicon valley and around the tech sector that growth is the one thing you should focus on. But it’s hard to grow if you are churning your users. And if you are paying for user acquisition, as many startups do in search of growth, then retention/churn becomes even more important. This issue was highlighted in a Forbes post on Homejoy, which apparently had a retention problem. A former…

In public equity when you get nervous about a stock, you can usually sell the position and move on. In private equity, you are stuck with the investment. So anxiety sets in. Entrepreneurs might mis-diagnose anxiety as something else. If your investors are all of a sudden meddling in the business, you might be seeing anxiety. If your investors are asking for endless amounts of data, you might be seeing anxiety. If your board meetings…

    22 Jul 2015 | 4:44 pm

So, on Wednesday, he filed a petition to put many of his taxi medallion-owning companies into bankruptcy. Medallions are the licenses many cities require to operate taxicabs, and their limited number has made them increasingly valuable over the last several decades. As recently as the summer of 2013, the kinds of medallions Mr. Freidman owns were worth as much as $1.2 million, far above the $739,000 of debt per medallion that…

When Pop gave up trying to make me work on the boat, I gave up playing baseball in the sand patch by the Wharf, and tried my hand at selling newspapers, a job my father…
  • Postcard Thursday: The Beginning of the Canyon of Heroes

    Michelle and James Nevius
    9 Jul 2015 | 9:23 am
    Since tomorrow the U.S. women's soccer team is being feted with a ticker tape parade, we searched our archives high and low for a postcard of a parade up Broadway, but came up short. (An internet search revealed that few, if any, commemorative postcards of parades have been issued.)Here, instead, is the image of the building that marks the beginning of the so-called "Canyon of Heroes": the Alexander Hamilton United States Custom House on Bowling Green, which sits at the foot of Broadway in the Financial District. Designed by Cass Gilbert and built between 1899 and 1907, the building is a…
  • Postcard Thursday: Manhattan Sightseeing Cars and the Times Tower

    Michelle and James Nevius
    2 Jul 2015 | 9:20 am
    Happy Actual Independence Day!Today's postcard was mailed exactly ninety-seven years ago on July 2, 1908. It depicts what was then one of New York's most noted skyscrapers, the Times Tower, which had been erected a few years earlier in Times Square. Today, that building's been so altered that it is virtually unrecognizable, but billions of people around the world know it well: it's the spot where the ball drops on New Year's Eve. (You can just see the pole sticking out of the frame at the top of the image.)This image, however, isn't about the Times Tower -- it shows the fleet of sightseeing…

    Sarah Stillman
    30 Jul 2015 | 12:40 pm
    On the night of May 27th, Charnice Milton, a twenty-seven-year-old journalist, was heading home from an assignment. She’d stopped to transfer buses in Anacostia, in Washington, D.C., after covering a neighborhood meeting for a Capitol Hill paper called the Hill Rag. According to police, Milton took a bullet aimed at another passerby, in a neighborhood that’s seen much of the twenty-per-cent increase in homicides in D.C. from this time last year. Her killing remains unsolved.See the rest of the story at newyorker.comRelated:Hemingway as the Godfather of Long-FormHow to Stay Safe When the…

    Richard Brody
    30 Jul 2015 | 11:01 am
    The art of Marlon Brando is that of the flesh made word. He was possessed of extraordinarily powerful, complex, and contradictory emotions, desires, and ideas, which he transmuted into a similarly complex range of speech, both in manner and in substance. Not only did he bring a singularly beautiful artistry to bear on the texts of others, but his own words are themselves works of art. In 1973, Norman Mailer wrote about Brando that “Sometimes he seemed the only player alive who knew how to suggest that he was about to say something more valuable than what he did say.” When Brando said what…

In recent years, Cacciola has made tintype portraits of soldiers, steelworkers, and brass-band musicians.

    Like the robot in a movie slowly discovering that it is, indeed, a robot, it feels as though we are living in the moment when white people, on a generational scale, have become self-aware. It’s one of the strange byproducts of the Obama era that many white people have begun to understand themselves in the explicit terms of identity politics, long the province of those on the margins. The nature of whiteness isn’t a new discussion, by any means, but it has never seemed quite so animated. There are the honest accounts of privilege and pride, shame and tears, what it means to be an ally or…
