    Left turn bans and added pedestrian space proposed for Broadway, Dyckman Street and Riverside Drive. Image: DOT. Click to enlarge DOT should begin work next month on long-awaited improvements to a dangerous Broadway intersection in Inwood. Pedestrians are forced to negotiate long crossings while watching for drivers coming from different directions simultaneously where Broadway meets Dyckman/200th Street and Riverside Drive. There were 128 crashes there from 2010 to 2012, resulting in injuries to three cyclists, five pedestrians, and 10 vehicle occupants, according to DOT.  Last fall…

  • State Interference in Nashville BRT Could Have National Implications

    Annie Weinstock
    23 Apr 2014 | 10:09 am
    Annie Weinstock is the regional director for the U.S. and Africa at the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy. Nashville’s BRT project, the Amp, would devote a small amount of this asphalt to transit. Photo: Wikimedia Last week saw the quiet death of the misguided, Koch brothers-funded Tennessee Senate Bill 2243, which would have effectively banned real bus rapid transit in Tennessee. The Senate’s outrageous overreach, attempting to prohibit transit from using dedicated lanes, was conferenced with a far milder House bill, and the compromise allows the use of separate…
  • Big Cuts in Store for Seattle Transit After Voters Reject Ballot Measure

    Angie Schmitt
    23 Apr 2014 | 8:20 am
    Photo: Oran Viriyincy/Flickr It looks like Seattle’s Prop 1, the ballot measure that could have fended off major cuts for Seattle transit, did not win a majority of the votes in yesterday’s election. Counting will likely go on for a while now, but early returns show Prop 1 failing by about 10 points. Passage would have prevented Seattle Metro from cutting 17 percent of its service, secured through an additional annual $40 car registration fee and a 0.1 percent sales tax hike. As Martin Duke at Seattle Transit Blog put it, “The impact will be most severe on the…

  • Lost City: San Francisco Edition: A Good Sign: Marquard's Little Cigar Store

    Brooks of Sheffield
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:00 am
    "A Good Sign" hardly seems to do justice to the former Marquard's on O'Farrell and Powell Streets in downtown San Francisco. How about "A Really Good Sign," or "A Great Freaking Sign!"?Marquard's Little Cigar Store certainly didn't have a little sign. The sprawling signage—more of a marquee/awning/canopy than a sign, really—embraces the entire corner. Sadly, the sign is all that remains of Marquard's; there a rinky-dink hat shop in that corner space now. The building was erected in 1907. The cigar shop and newsstand (note the neon New York Times sign) went out of business in 2005, but the…
  • What Newspaper Lobbies Should Look Like

    Brooks of Sheffield
    22 Apr 2014 | 1:00 am
    Everyone who works at a newspaper should begin the day by walking into a building like the Chicago Tribune's. Perhaps it would remind them of the potential nobility of their profession and how journalism can be, and should be, a pillar of Democracy.The Tribune Tower was erected in 1925. It is the work of New York architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood (who went on to build the McGraw-Hill Building), who beat out famed Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen a famous 1922 contest to win the assignment. (Many at the time thought the modernist Saarinen should have prevailed over the more…
  • A Memory of Brooklyn's Happy Hour Movie Theatre

    Brooks of Sheffield
    21 Apr 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Over the years, I've heard a remembrance here and there of the Happy Hour Movie Theatre, or of two movie theatres that lined Columbia Street that that Brooklyn thoroughfare was a bustling shopping district (the other was the Luna, currently being replaced by a condo tower). But this is the most detailed account I've ever been sent: The Happy Hour movie theatre was located at 225 Columbia Street. During the 50s & 60s every kid in the neighborhood was there every weekend. They had a section in front for all unescorted kids so that the adults could watch the movie in peace. For your 40…
  • A Good Sign: Rizzo's Fine Pizza

    Brooks of Sheffield
    21 Apr 2014 | 1:30 am
    Old New York Pizzeria's often have good signage, but typically not of the neon sort. Rizzo's Fine Pizza in Astoria is a happy exception. That's got to be one of the peachier neon signs I've ever seen on a slice joint. And how many pizzeria's chose to describe their cuisine as "fine"?Rizzo's was founded in 1959 by the brothers Joseph and Salvatore Rizzo, along with their brother-in-law Hugo Lupi. Squares are the order of the day here. Rizzo's specializes in thin-crust Sicilian, an unusual pizza genre.

  • Rents Soar While Income Falls in Brooklyn

    23 Apr 2014 | 6:30 am
    Average rents rose 77 percent in Brooklyn while city wide real median income fell 4.8 percent from 2000 to 2012, according to a report out from the city comptroller described in The New York Post. The increases were the largest in any borough. A story in the Times implied that meeting Mayor de Blasio’s stated goal of keeping or creating 200,000 affordable units will not fix the problem: In an interview, Mr. Stringer said numeric goals were not enough. He noted that the Bloomberg administration spent $5.3 billion of city money and leveraged another $18.3 billion to both create new…
  • Community Boards Scuffle Over Atlantic Yards

    23 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    Three community boards are fighting over jurisdiction of the 22 acres that make up the Atlantic Yards development. Most of the complex, which runs along Atlantic Avenue near the intersection of Flatbush Avenue, is technically in Prospect Heights, with a small section in Park Slope. But the Community Boards don’t exactly follow neighborhood lines, so bits of it belong to CB 2, 6, and 8. Why it matters is not really clarified by a story examining the matter in detail in The New York Times. The CBs are responsible for things like trash pickup, liquor license reviews and noise complaints.

  • Yes, One of NYC's Best Black and White Cookies is in a Midtown Salad Bar

    Niko Triantafillou
    23 Apr 2014 | 12:00 pm
    [Photographs: Niko Triantafillou] One of the best black and white cookies I've had this year didn't come from a 100-year-old bakery or a famous Lower East Side institution. It came from Dishes, the upscale sandwich shop and salad bar in Midtown East. Dishes' own Black and White Cookie ($2.50) features a standard glaze that's dry to the touch but delightfully soft when you bite into it. You can easily distinguish between the chocolate and vanilla halves, and as you'd expect, the chocolate is super sweet rather than dark. The cookie base is soft but not to the point of crumbly cake, a style…

Since opening a year and half ago, it's become one of the borough's very best in genre, an exclusive club that counts beloved favorites including Bate, Ebe Yie Ye, and Papaye among its members. The banga soup alone was unique enough to warrant special mention, but as I've discovered, there's a lot more going on here. While West African immigrants to the Bronx hail from all over the region, the majority hail from Ghana. Accordingly, most…

  • Why Restaurants Should Keep Their Bread Baskets

    Andrew Coe
    22 Apr 2014 | 2:00 pm
    [Photographs: Andrew Coe] The scene: a trendy Brooklyn restaurant recently opened by a rambunctious former Top Chef contestant. The menu: small plates, mostly vegetables and seafood, often raw. Conspicuously missing: bread to wipe the sauce off the plates. The outcome: a considerably lighter wallet and a stomach still wondering, "When do we eat?" In an article in the latest The Art of Eating, Ed Behr states that contemporary chefs have a "disinterest in the role of bread." He bemoans this, because he loves bread, understands bread's central place in Western culinary culture, and believes that…

  • Counting The Hits

    Fred Wilson
    23 Apr 2014 | 3:29 am
    Venture Capital is a hits business. All of the returns come from the top cohort of investments. So figuring out how many “hits” there are over a given time period turns out to be a useful exercise. Aileen Lee posted her attempt to do that on TechCrunch a while back. I countered with a post of my own on the topic. Those two posts started William Mougayar on a long process to figure out what the right number is. This week he published his findings. William has found 235 global “tech” companies that were started since 2000 that have gone on to be valued at north of…

    Yesterday the news broke about our most recent investment, CrowdRise. I wrote a bit about it yesterday on I thought I’d add some thoughts here as well. Many of our best investments came to us over time. We did not invest the first time we met them, or the second, or the third. CloudFlare was like that, SoundCloud was like that, Behance was like that. Zynga was like that. FeedBurner was like that. And CrowdRise was like that. I told the story of how I met them in 2010 and we did not invest until 2014 in the post yesterday. Many things, like wine, get better over time.

    Fred Wilson

    Sam Altman, who is now running YC, has a good post on employee equity that has been making the rounds this weekend. He makes four observations about employee equity: - employees don’t get enough - the requirement to exercise quickly upon leaving is painful - the tax treatment of options is closer to salary than stock - companies don’t tell employees enough about their stock and related information I generally agree with the latter three points. But I am not sold on the first point. We have seen some of our portfolio companies make very large grants to early employees and that ends…

    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…

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.

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.

You may remember that Wang chose to show his AW14 Collection at the Navy Yard this past February, to mixed reactions from fashion insiders.  Some felt that the commute to the Navy Yard was too far away and the transportation situation (in heels no less) was a hassle.  As stylist Ann Caruso was quoted saying at the time,  ”I don’t even go over to…

    Raven Snook
    23 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    My kid turns 9 this year so over the past decade I've thrown four parties at home, booked three party venues, made my mother-in-law do all the work once when I couldn't face it, and attended countless birthday bashes for my daughter's friends.

Luckily in NYC there are plenty of actual kids' party experts willing to share the tips, tricks and wisdom they've picked up from hosting hundreds of children's bashes every year. So if there's a…

  • NYC Roller Rinks: Where to Roller-Skate with Kids Including 2 Brand-new Brooklyn Rinks

    Raven Snook

    Back when I was growing up in NYC, I remember going roller-skating in Central Park during the summer. I'm not talking about Rollerblading—there was an actual rink with roller skates to rent, not just the enthusiastic Dance Skaters. In fact, there were indoor and outdoor rinks scattered throughout the five boroughs. It was the '80s after all. However, over the past few years, New York City has been seriously roller-skate challenged with only two rinks—one at Riverbank State Park, the other indoors at Staten Island's RollerJam USA—in all five boroughs. But…

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.

    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,…

    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.

The NY “TravFest” hosts panels, interactive discussions, and hands-on workshops dealing with hot-button travel topics and trends that will inspire and enhance your travel planning.

  • How One Guitar Will Save The World
    4 Apr 2014 | 12:33 pm
    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…
  • Keep It Sweet
    28 Feb 2014 | 8:15 am
    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…
  • Southeast Asian Countries Collectively Cultivate United Tourism Model
    15 Jan 2014 | 4:00 am
    Southeast Asia’s 10 countries are bonding…like Borneo Hornbills The idea of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts is not lost on Southeast Asia. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) resonates the European Union’s regional solidarity for reciprocal benefits. Held in member nation Malaysia, the 33rd annual ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) will take place January 16-23. In developmental terms, Southeast Asia’s 10-country amalgam of incredibly diverse cultures poses several challenges, one of which is its diversity. ASEAN member states range from wealthy Singapore and…
  • Baltimore, Maryland
    9 Jan 2014 | 7:54 am
    Baltimore’s Inner Harbor Baltimore is a legendary brick empire that redefines urban renewal. After sliding from a manufacturing stronghold into a depression of near irrelevance, the port cities’ grand factory landscape has been reinvented into an industrial-chic hotspot. 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…

    East Village Vibe

  • Gelato and More (But Mostly Gelato) at Fresco

    Jay Miller
    23 Apr 2014 | 5:57 am
    Photo from Yelp. It was about 60° out. That could only mean one thing: Ice cream. I was hanging out with Jacob and we agreed that the best way to celebrate spring was to give winter the middle finger by eating ice cream way too early in the season. But Davey’s was closed and we’d been to most of the other great East Village ice cream parlors. But we hadn’t been to Fresco Gelateria yet. Fresco is a café rather than a simple parlor like Big Gay Ice Cream or Lula’s Sweet Apothecary. They have tables and chairs, power outlets, and a menu including coffee and pastries. We noted the…
  • Strong Drinks and Comfy Chairs at Shoolbred’s Happy Hour

    22 Apr 2014 | 6:02 am
    Photo from Shoolbred’s. Jacob and I really love happy hours because they’re the best way to relax on the cheap after a long day at work. So when we caught sight of Shoolbred’s deal on the way to the bus we had no choice but to go in. After all, one does not simply ignore a two-for-one special on all drinks. Yes, you read that right: All drinks. Shoolbred’s is run by The Church Group, a small chain of elegant bars that includes Ninth Ward—a favorite of mine—which is just a block south of Shoolbred’s. So it should be no surprise that Shoolbred’s is fantastically well-accoutered,…
  • Stay Frosty with Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra

    21 Apr 2014 | 6:03 am
    Photo from The Bjorkestra. You guys! It’s finally, like, warm! Ish. It’s warmish. But that means it’s the perfect time to chill out with an Icelandic sensation’s cover band. And The Bjorkestra isn’t just a cover band; it’s a jazzy big band with an impressive array of genres and recording credits. They’re a New York original, taking Björk’s mind-bending spread of styles and reinterpreting them in even more new ways. Björk is an incredible artist who started performing when she was 11 and whose discography includes just one hit in the Hot 100 … but six Top 10 Dance hits,…
  • 75 First Avenue Looks to be Underway

    18 Apr 2014 | 6:03 am
    Photo from Orange Management. More development is beginning in the East Village as 1st Ave. b/t 4th & 5th Sts. is turned into a new building. For those unfamiliar with the area, this residential building will be directly to the left of the Rite Aid if you’re across the street from it. It’s been nine years since Anthony Marano, an ex-Corcoran broker, bought the property for $3.5 million. Originally, he had wanted to put a 14-story building there, but the zoning board gave him a big, fat no. Clearly, he’s back again and this time, the building looks a little more…
  • Sun Ra Arkestra at DROM Tomorrow Night

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:05 am
    Photo from the Sun Ra Arkestra. I don’t know exactly what the Sun Ra Arkestra is supposed to be but their website is basically from 1999 and claims to be the “Home in internet of the Sun Ra Arkestra directed by Marshall Allen”.  That’s charmingly quaint so I went to do some research.  And what I found was that they were formed by a guy named Sun Ra (born Herman Poole Blount, legal name Le Sony’r Ra). Sun Ra was crazy. He was a fantastic jazz musician but controversial due to his “eclectic music and unorthodox lifestyle.”  Oh, and that unorthodox lifestyle?  Yeah, he…

    A Theatre Review by Rori NogeeViolet opened at the American Airlines theater on April 20. {credit}Amidst the glitter and glitz of Aladdin and the epic power ballads of Les Miserables, sits Violet, a quiet, intimate gem where acting and story take center stage over spectacle.

Concert just last year.The story occurs in 1964 and centers around Violet (Sutton Foster),  a young woman from North Carolina who bears a scar on her face, the result of an axe blade…

    THE BBQSStraight from the outer boroughsby Tracy KalerIt's no secret that the Brooklyn food scene has exploded over the past few years. In fact, you'll find a diverse selection of eats in most every neighborhood in the borough of Kings. We've featured eateries in areas like Carroll Gardens, Prospect Heights, Bay Ridge, and Greenpoint, right here on Tracy's New York Life. Likewise, with the array of scrumptious places to dine and imbibe in our great city, sometimes choosing our next meal out is one of our biggest challenges.

  • My Favorite Spring Blog Posts of All Time

    by Tracy KalerSpring is in full swing!Spring is my favorite season in New York. In mid-April, blooms begin to add accents of color to the dull, gray cityscape. By early May, the city is in full green with daytime temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s. Meanwhile, early morning and nighttime numbers linger in the 50s, ideal for sporting a spring coat.With Easter, Passover, warmer weather, and the changing landscape around town, New Yorkers emerge from their apartment cocoons and fill the streets, parks, shops, and sidewalk cafes.Spring also provides a host of topics to blog about.

And if Monkey doesn't understand that or his smoking, she can just eat a banana for all he cares. My friend Joey Allgood was so kind as to draw a cartoon for this week's Subway Story.
