  • Richards Shines In Game 1 As Rangers Maintain Home Mojo Over Flyers

  • Lichtenstein’s Playoff Preview: Nets Will Get Past Raptors, But It Won’t Be Easy

    18 Apr 2014 | 4:06 am
    By Steve Lichtenstein » More Columns Contrary to many popular opinions, the Nets did not tank the final week of the regular season to avoid a particular opponent in the playoffs. No, there were too many variables outside of the Nets’ control that affected the top eight slots in the Eastern Conference for Brooklyn to have any such master plan. I guess that’s what you get when you lose four of your last five games—all to teams with sub-.500 records — like the Nets just did.

  • Determining Price Differentials for Floors & Views

    7 Apr 2014 | 5:41 am
    A seller recently asked what is the price differential for each floor in a Manhattan apartment building? In Manhattan there are many variables in determining the price differential for each floor. A beautifully renovated apartment on a lower floor can sell for a higher price than an "original condition" apartment on a high floor. The parlor floor in a townhouse may be worth more than the 4th floor if it's a walk-up. A 10th floor apartment facing the back will sell for less than the same apartment on the 5th floor directly facing Central Park. Unless the building owns the air rights over…

But subsequent occupants of the address—either out of deference to the lovely signage, or out of laziness—have left Louis' name up there, ensuring that the former proprietor has not entirely passed from public memory.I've passed…

    Preservationists Elizabeth Finkelstein and Chelcey Berryhill will teach a class next week on how to research the history of any wood frame, stone or brick townhouse or apartment building in Brooklyn. Making use of digitized, online resources as well as other repositories in Brooklyn and Manhattan, “Research Your Historic Brooklyn House” will cover how to research the history of a building and find what it looked like originally and who lived there. Renters and homeowners both welcome. Particular attention will be paid to finding historic photographs to show to an architect or…

For the next 40 years, the neighborhood remained undeveloped and was a dumping ground for all kinds of things, including bodies. The body of a baby was found here in 1846, seen abandoned by a…

    17 Apr 2014 | 10:30 am
    Huge and on a corner, this gem of a Greek Revival house at 15 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights was built in 1834. The proportions are impressive: It’s 25.5 feet wide with five stories and 39 windows. It has beautiful marble and wood Greek Revival fireplaces, dentil crown molding as well as the other moldings one would expect, tall windows on the parlor floor, and pier and mantel mirrors. There are also views of the harbor and bridge. A kitchen and bath don’t appear to have been updated too recently, but they look pleasant and usable as they are. What we can’t figure out is…

    [Photographs: Max Falkowitz] Everyone talks about Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao, the famed soup dumpling house in Flushing that many consider to serve the city's best. But its next door neighbor Canton Gourmet, which looks so much like Nan Xiang you could think they were the same place, gets no love. That's a shame, as it has a specialty all its own that should send the hungry and curious racing to its doors. The menu devotes a full page photo to the Famous Garlic Aromatic Crispy Chicken ($12), a wide platter of hacked-up bird that's worth a trip all its own. Wings, breasts, and legs are heavily…

And that's a shame, because some of New York's best eating experiences are the ones that get precious little love. So be it a diner with a killer roast beef sandwich, a street cart off the beaten path, or a little Italian place that's still (perhaps blissfully) undiscovered, tell us: what restaurants in the city deserve more attention than they get, and what…

    It always makes me happy to see my daughter Emily send a tweet, my son Josh repost a song on SoundCloud, and my daughter Jessica post something to her Tumblr. They aren’t always so keen to use the services we back at USV, but they do come around to them from time to time. But I think the biggest kick I got in this area was a few weeks ago when Jessica and three friends launched this Kickstarter. It was funded quickly, over the course of a weekend, and they don’t need more money so if you are in the giving mood today, you might want to find another project to back. If you live in…
  • The Difference Between Large Funds and Small Funds

    Fred Wilson
    16 Apr 2014 | 4:27 am
    I have always been a “small fund” oriented investor. Both models work if executed well, but they are different. With small funds, you only need to find a few good ideas a year to get behind. That is true in hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, and probably many other asset classes. With large funds, you need to get behind every good idea every year. There are some investors out there than can execute the large fund model. I imagine you can list them and so can I. But there aren’t many who can. There are many investors out there that can execute the small fund model.
  • Cryptography

    Fred Wilson
    15 Apr 2014 | 3:19 am
    So much of what interests me and consumes the tech industry these days relates to Cryptography, and in particularly public key cryptography. The list would include Heartbleed, NSA spying on citizens, and of course, Bitcoin and Blockhains. And yet, when I hear people talk about Cryptography or when I read about Cryptography, my eyes tend to glaze over because I never studied Cryptography and am a self taught coder. So I need to fix this. I want to bone up on Cryptography. Where should I start and what should I read?

After transcribing the talk, she reached out to me and suggested printing the entire thing as a Q&A. I was nervous about that because I was pretty candid about things in our talk as it was on background. But after reading the transcript, I understood why Alyson wanted to run it in its entirety. I ran it by the Gotham Gal and my partners and they said it was OK. So I asked her to change one thing where I felt I was not…

    The Gotham Gal moved to WordPress this week. I mentioned it in a post mid week. She maintains a book list on her blog. She’s a huge reader, at least a couple books a week, many times more than that. And she lists her favorite reads for all to see. It used to be a TypePad widget on the sidebar but in the new UI, it’s an entire page linked to off the main header. On TypePad, she could enter a book name, an ASIN, or an ISBN and the book and link to Amazon would automatically be added to the list (with her Amazon Affiliate ID attached). I spent about an hour yesterday trying to…

  • Summer for a student journalist: Struggle Edition.

    Carla Vianna
    17 Apr 2014 | 7:30 pm
    With four days left in the semester, there is one thing on everyone’s mind: summer. But for that segment of the student population that call themselves journalism majors, something else gets in the way of summer-time thoughts: internships. As a journalism student, the biggest asset to a resume, besides a degree, is internship experience. For those that aren’t aware, the internship battle field — and yes, I call it a battle field — is highly competitive. By competitive I mean thousands of journalism students with more than enough clips, reputable internships, stellar…

  • More cabbies testing positive for cocaine and marijuana

    30 Mar 2014 | 11:54 am
    Taxi drivers took to cocaine or marijuana at unusually high rates in 2013 — more than doubling the number of cabbies who got sacked for drug use a year earlier, records show. There were 51 hacks who lost their licenses after testing positive for controlled substances last year — a significant hike from the 20 who were canned in 2012 and 34 in 2011. This year, 16 drivers have already had their Taxi and Limousine Commission licenses yanked for failing their annual drug test — including one who tested positive for a party-hardy mix of coke and weed. “The ingestion of any controlled…

    Nissan is recalling just over 1 million cars, SUVs and vans because the front passenger air bags may not inflate in a crash. It’s the company’s second recall to fix the same problem. The recall affects the NV200 Taxi van, Altima midsize car, Leaf electric car, Pathfinder SUV and Sentra compact models from the 2013 and 2014 model years, Infiniti JX35 SUV from 2013. Also covered are the Infiniti QX60 and Q50 SUVs from 2014. In documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Nissan says the vehicles’ computer software may not detect an adult in the passenger seat.

The accused scammers were slapped with bribery charges and were expected to be arraigned later Wednesday in Queens Criminal Court, said Queens DA Richard A.

    Today's postcard is appropriate for the middle of Passover: a street scene on the Lower East Side, showing vendors and shoppers along Hester Street. The architecture of this block (just west of Essex Street) is very similar to what one sees today. The building at the far right still stands, and the large edifice three-quarters of the way down the block is an elementary school that continues to welcome students.Notice the wood-frame house, third from the right; until 2007, that building (or perhaps a similarly built successor) housed Gertel's, the beloved kosher bakery. After Gertel's moved…

After taking command of the Niagara, the British expected the Americans to retreat; instead, Perry pressed the attack, and by 3:00 p.m., the British had surrendered--the first time in history that an entire British naval squadron had surrendered.The figure seated in the boat tugging on Commodore Perry's coat is his brother, Alexander,…

When Congress first met, 225 years ago, its headquarters was in Federal Hall at the corner of Nassau and Wall streets.Here's a view of Wall Street (not, technically, a postcard) from 1847, showing how the street had developed in the 70 years following Washington's inauguration. Rising up on Broadway is the familiar tower of Trinity Church, which at the time would have been brand new. The building flying the large American flag is what we today call Federal Hall National Memorial. It was also relatively new,…

    A few weeks ago, I moved to Inwood, a neighborhood in the northernmost reaches of the island of Manhattan. I was immediately struck by its friendliness, with many people introducing themselves and asking if I needed anything. In the little time I have been here, I have stayed close to home and have left only when it was time to go to work.I like walking up and down the hilly streets and rambling down past the baseball fields to Spuyten Duyvil Creek with its views of ducks, geese, and the pretty Henry Hudson Bridge. I have seen several Red-tailed Hawks flying about the hills, and a Snowy Egret…
  • Sea Longing at the Cunard Building, 25 Broadway

    9 Aug 2013 | 11:12 am
    The Cunard Building at 25 Broadway, while no longer housing the grand "Ticketing Hall" for the great ocean liners, still evokes dreams of a long voyage at sea. Designed by architect Benjamin Wistar Morris with Carrere & Hastings and completed in 1921, the grand neo-Renaissance building at the top of Bowling Green solidified the company's position as a leader of transatlantic travel and  commercial shipping. In 1917, the company had built an equally impressive European headquarters in Liverpool.The Great Hall, once a bustling scene for those making arrangements for sea voyages,…

    10 Most Expensive Real Estate Markets By Robert Frank To most people, New York City has become an otherworldly real estate market. It’s the town where a skyrise condo just sold for more than $50 million — and it was only that cheap because it was raw space. But to the global rich, New York is a bargain. 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…

    13 Apr 2014 | 3:49 pm
    So, what is the point of pick up? Get laid with as many girls as you can? Bring home every girl you met on friday night? I think pick up is good if you want to improve yourself as person to get more self confidence and independent but you should be yourself because if you try to pretend something who you really aren’t you will get a girl only for one night. Yeah, of course if one night stands is your goal than you can  try to pick up drunk girls… But does it make you happy? I know sometimes when you trying to pick up girls is very hard to be honest and real version of yourself.

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…

Being from this storied metropolis means being somehow connected to the water—whether it be intrepid boating, prying open seafood, or wearing nautical-inspired clothing even in winter. Locals also don’t pronounce the ‘t’ in Baltimore. A relaxed gap between north and south, the hometown of Frank Zappa and John…

We’ve had our share of great bagels here at EVV, my mom keeps sending me coupons for Auntie Anne’s, and I can always grab a big soft pretzel from a street cart or something, but Sigmund’s has them all beat.  That’s for two reasons.  The first is that great soft pretzels are really hard to find, making them sort of novel. The second is that these pretzels are freaking fantastic. Sigmund’s is a small bar and café on 2nd Ave. that has an…
  • Otto’s Tacos Has Some Damn Tasty Tacos

    Photo from Steady Mobbin’. I don’t get to eat tacos very often; I never order them when I go to a Mexican restaurant even though I love them. And if you go to Taco Bell, you’re eating low-grade food wrapped in a semi-stale tortilla. And even when I do find myself getting tacos, the portions are minuscule and they try to make it seem “valuable” by giving rice and beans. Don’t get me wrong, I like rice and beans. But when I want a taco, I want a taco. I know where I’m going to get tacos from now on: Otto’s Tacos. As their website says,…

    We don’t judge here at East Village Vibe.  But you’re more than welcome to—which is why you might want to attend Mr. Nude York (nsfw link!) this Thursday at 1 AM at The Cock (29 2nd Ave. b/t 1st & 2nd Sts.), a gay-friendly dive bar that features, shall we say, a mom-unfriendly atmosphere on the daily. Daniel Nardicio hosts and that means it’s gonna be an awesome show.  Nardicio is known as one of the best party promoters out there, and he specializes in gay nightlife.  It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Mr. Nude York was a huge success in its first two years. And now he’s…

    Back in December, I wrote about 10 Bond Street‘s development. While the building still won’t be open for people to move in until 2015, sales were expected to start in the first quarter of this year. And voila, we are right around that time and the first units are available for sale. As a reminder, this building is seven stories tall and has 11 units including one townhouse with a private garage, one penthouse with terraces, and nine two- to three-bedroom units. Despite there being eleven units, only a few of them are currently open for sale. The four units currently available are…

    LOOKING GOODby Tracy KalerLinda Pagan and I pose in our Sunday hats at The Hat Shop in SoHo."Leave everyone wondering which is the more interesting piece of work... you or your hat." --UnknownI hated hats as a child. My mother has a video of me sporting a hat –– probably at the age of about two years old –– then tearing it off my head and tossing it to the ground. I think I cried while doing it, too. (Not sure if I cried because I was mad about wearing a hat, or because I realized my head was cold without it.)As I grew older, I developed an affinity for hats of all kinds. I…
