  • 3/29 CBS2 Sunday Morning Weather Headlines

    29 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    By Mark McIntyre, CBS2 Meteorologist/Weather Producer Brrr! It sure is cold out there! You’ll want to bundle up if you’re heading out for errands or a morning run with temps in the teens and 20s. In terms of sunshine, today will feature a whole lot more of it compared to yesterday. Unfortunately, we’ll only warm to 45 degrees– a good 10 below normal. A breeze out of the north/northwest will make it feel worse, more like the upper 20s. (Credit: CBS2) Monday is when the real “warm up” arrives as we hit the mid-50s, but of course it’s with a hitch:…

  • Authorities: Call Reporting Hostage Situation In Clifton, N.J., Was A Hoax

    28 Mar 2015 | 8:40 pm CLIFTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A massive police presence at a group of stores in Clifton, New Jersey, Saturday night was sparked by a hoax call, authorities confirmed to CBS2.

  • Mighty Mies: How Mies van der Rohe's Design for a Bacardi HQ in Cuba Became Berlin's Iconic Neue Nationalgalerie

    Rachel B. Doyle
    27 Mar 2015 | 3:30 pm
    Photo by Achim Kleuker via Stone Ideas The Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, long considered to be Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's final masterpiece, opened in 1968 on a barren stretch of land not far from the border checkpoints of the Berlin Wall, which was just seven years old at that point. It was not the first time the monumental building with its elevated glass pavilion had been uncomfortably close to the vicissitudes of history. Van der Rohe originally designed a version of the building for the Bacardi rum company's headquarters in Santiago de Cuba. However that building was never completed,…
  • Mighty Mies : Mapping Mies van der Rohe's Most Important Buildings

    Rob Bear
    27 Mar 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Photo via IIT/Flickr An influential early modernist, one time director of the Bauhaus, and developer of the International Style, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe would have turned 129 today, had he not passed away in 1969, of course. By way of celebration, there's a map of his seminal works below, but let's kick things off with a few fun facts. Did you know that the great master's first name was originally Maria? Or that he adopted the patrician-sounding "van der Rohe," but was forced to use the Dutch spelling, as "von" was restricted to true German aristocrats? Or that he is he rumored to have…

  • Curbed Chicago: Mies Makes a Case for Preserving Glass-and-Steel Boxes

    Sally Kuchar
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:52 pm
    [Photo: Chicago Architectural Foundation]The maxim "less is more" has become synonymous with Mies van der Rohe's design approach, shorthand for the power of focusing on the pertinent details and the experience within a space. But for those tasked with repairing and restoring the architectural icon's masterpieces, the phrase could easily refer to the amount of work they need to perform to bring modernist buildings back to their former glory. A cynic may question the true challenge of restoring a steel-and-glass box; it's a relatively new structure, so it's not like restoration experts are…

    “If you’re video maker who’s had a video flagged and you want to dispute it, the process is Kafkaesque. The copyright holder alone decides the outcome: It can uphold its claim. It can agree that your video does not infringe its copyright. Or it can do nothing at all for 30 days, during which time all advertising is suspended. Most likely, your video eventually is returned to you—but by that point, the damage is done.”

    They're restoring an 1880's oyster barge and bringing it to Red Hook. The team behind Grand Banks, the idyllic seasonal floating bar in Hudson on a restored 19th century schooner, may bring another floating restaurant to NYC. Alex and Miles Pincus and restaurateur Mark Firth recently acquired the last intact New York City oyster barge in the country. The 1880's barge has been docked in New Haven for some time, but the team plans to start dismantling it on Wednesday and moving it to Red Hook. The trio isn't quite sure what will become of it once it's moved and restored, but it may be…

It definitely doesn't mean that the store will smell like the lingering remnants of delicious carne asada and fresh guacamole.

Using a tool developed by the University of Virginia Demographics Research Group, Michael Andersen at Bike Portland shares these charts showing where housing growth has happened relative to city centers. The dark brown lines show the number of occupied housing units at one-mile intervals from the urban core in 2012, and the orange lines show the distribution in 1990. The gap between the lines tells you where housing growth has happened, and there is huge variation between regions. In Denver, for…

They called this set of regulations the “Bitlicense.” I have been following this issue closely and participated in public testimony before the DFS back in January 2014 that was a precursor to creating these new regulations. While these regulations will only apply to businesses operating in New York State, they will naturally be a precedent for many other states who seek to regulate virtual…

    20 Mar 2015 | 4:04 pm
    New York City’s taxi industry is gearing up to propose a cap on so-called black cars as the number of Uber cars outpaces yellow taxis for the first time. The proposed cap, which is still being drafted, seeks to halt the growth of livery cabs, also known as black cars, until city officials can study the impact they are having on traffic, parking and pollution, said Tweeps Phillips, executive director of Committee for Taxi Safety, an industry group. The planned cap comes on the heels of new data showing that the number of Uber cars in NYC has outpaced yellow taxis for the first time.

    The rise of Uber is destroying the traditional taxi business, according to this compelling chart from data compiled by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission. It tracks sale prices of taxi “medallions,” the expensive licenses that give companies the right to operate a yellow cab: The data was compiled by Donut Shorts, a Twitter account for investors. Stocks that track the taxi business are down too (more on that below). The scariest part — for taxi companies — is the bottom part of the medallion chart, where the blue bars indicate sales coming from foreclosures.

Heads turned in the business media and beyond. “Medallion profits point to taxi fightback,” blared the Financial Times. “Uber does little to hurt yellow taxi profits,” crowed the New York Post. Financial analysts seemed to agree. “The media and…
  • NYC Taxi chief: Cabs that respond to tech competition will survive

    20 Feb 2015 | 3:12 pm
    New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission Chair Meera Joshi speaks Friday morning at the New York Law School. The yellow cab industry is perfectly capable of recovering from a 25-percent decline in the value of taxi medallions despite the onslaught of competition from upstarts like Uber, Taxi & Limousine Commission Chair Meera Joshi insisted today. Speaking at the New York Law School in Tribeca, Joshi said medallion prices — which peaked at $1.05 million in 2013 before falling to $805,000 late last year — were in an “artificial bubble” created by a few outsized…

    26 Mar 2015 | 12:51 pm
    Fire engines race to the scene of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, March 25, 1911Yesterday was the 104th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, one of New York's greatest tragedies. We've dug up some interesting images from the Library of Congress: above, this photo evidently shows a horse-drawn fire engine racing to the scene of the fire. Below is a crowd of union supporters marching on May 1, 1911 (which is still Labor Day in most of the world, just not the USA). On one of the Yiddish signs is the number 146 -- the number of victims of the fire.May 1, 1911, Labor Day…

    12 Mar 2015 | 9:08 am
    This year marks both the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and the 200th anniversary of the conclusion of the War of 1812 -- and the subject of today's postcard is significant to both.Pictured above is Castle Williams on Governor's Island (erroneously called Castle William in the caption). The fortification was designed by Jonathan Williams, the chief surveyor of the army, and named for him in 1810. Williams is also honored in the name of the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn, the street plan of which he laid out in 1802.One of many fortifications built in the run-up to the…
  • Postcard Thursday: The Vanderbilt Mansion and Plaza Hotel

    Michelle and James Nevius
    5 Mar 2015 | 8:54 am
    Today's postcard again takes us back to the era before 1907 when messages had to be crammed on the front of the card because the back was reserved solely for the address. You can also date this card as being before 1907 because the building on the right is the original Plaza Hotel. It stood on the exact same spot as the current incarnation, but was only around from 1890 to 1905, when it was demolished so that Henry Hardenbergh's new hotel could be built.The mansion at the left of the image is the most impressive of the many Vanderbilt mansions that formed a sort of "Vanderbilt Row" on Fifth…

  • The Wonder of Learning: A Free Reggio Emilia Exhibit for Kids to Explore

    As a parent of two young daughters who attend a Reggio Early Childhood Center called Amazing Magic Beans in Sunnyside, Queens, I was beyond thrilled to hear about The Wondering of Learning: The Hundred Languages of Children exhibit. In previous years, Reggio exhibits have designated a small interactive area for kids due to space constraints. We lucked out this year with two different discovery-based ateliers in large open spaces where children can play and explore to their hearts' content. We went as a family and the girls had so much fun, we literally had to drag them out of there at closing…

    This simple idea is a great way to re-use all those plastic eggs the Easter Bunny may leave behind. All you need is a permanent marker to turn those eggs into these learning games.  There are so many different ways to make this game fun for your child. You can practice uppercase and lowercase by drawing the letters on each side of the egg and matching them.  Or, you can discover compound words by writing each half of the compound word on each end of the plastic Easter egg and see how many words you can create. Get some hands-on experience with word families by writing the endings on one…

    The New Yorker: Everything

  • A Calculated Risk

    Steve Coll
    28 Mar 2015 | 9:00 pm
    In 1974, the Ford Administration conducted nuclear talks with Iran. Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, heir to the Peacock Throne and an American ally, had asserted his country’s right to build nuclear power plants. Henry Kissinger and Brent Scowcroft sought a deal to reduce the risk that Iran could ever make an atomic bomb. They had to manage a restive Congress. A secret White House memo summarizing the problem noted that “special safeguards [that] might be satisfactory to Congress . . . are proving unacceptable to Iran.”See the rest of the story at newyorker.comRelated:Waste Not, Want…

    The other night, as I ate a salad at Blue Hill, in the West Village, a server approached my table with an iPad. “Have you seen this?” she asked. “Chef wanted you to see this.” By “Chef,” she meant Dan Barber, the man behind Blue Hill and Blue Hill Stone Barns, a sister restaurant and farm upstate. By “this,” she meant a photograph of a dumpster, into which a chute was depositing an enormous quantity of multi-colored scraps of fruit and vegetables—the runoff from a commercial food processor. The experience felt something similar to being shown a picture of what would…
  • Trapped in an Artistic Life

    Richard Brody
    28 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    Noah Baumbach, whose new film “While We’re Young” opens this weekend, has become the master of a genre unto himself: the personal counterfactual. In “Greenberg” and “Frances Ha,” and now once again, he looks to his own experience and character, and then films dramas that walk down the road not taken or that leave himself out of a story that involves him. “While We’re Young” is an imaginative fiction about a filmmaker who is like and unlike Baumbach in ways that determine the movie’s content, tone, and style. It’s set in the world of documentary filmmaking, one that…

    John Cassidy

    Shortly before the dreadful crash of Germanwings Flight 9525, I happened to be reading part of “The Second Machine Age,” a book by two academics at M.I.T., Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, about the coming automation of many professions previously thought of as impervious to technological change, such as those of drivers, doctors, market researchers, and soldiers. With the advances being made in robotics, data analysis, and artificial intelligence, Brynjolfsson and McAfee argue, we are on the cusp of a third industrial revolution. From what I’ve read of their book, Brynjolfsson…
  • On Not Totally Seeing a Total Solar Eclipse

    Lavinia Greenlaw
    28 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    There were only two places in the world from which this year’s total solar eclipse could be seen on land. One was Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago north of the Arctic Circle, and the other was the Faroe Islands, which lie halfway between Scotland and Iceland. The Faroes bring to mind Edmund Burke’s definition of the sublime: “tranquillity tinged with terror.” Volcanic in origin, the islands are scattered over the water in roughly the shape of an arrowhead, erupting out of the sea in imposing basalt cliffs. But their light and landscape are muted—mellow greens, reds, yellows, and…

So, why make the airline your vacation ally?

When people say it has sugar-white sand (actually fine quartz flakes) and emerald colored waters, believe them. The upland estuaries that have been feeding these beaches for millenniums creates this sugary magic. On the opposing sides of the Emerald Coast’s beaches, the sand turns back into, well, sand.

Even better, it was June, thus blissfully offseason. The last time I visited the southern beach town of Krabi—1987 in backpacker mode—it was mostly Euro-backpackers, when $5/day covered food, thatched-roof camping, and whatever party mode you fancied.
