  • Three Great Cheap Places You Should Know About: Don Pepe Tortas and Other Awesome Cheap Restaurants

    Robert Sietsema
    30 Jul 2014 | 1:15 pm
    Every few weeks, Eater's critic Robert Sietsema shares a few of his favorite budget eats around New York City. Here, now, are three more great cheap restaurants you should know about: You won't find cemitas there, or pambazos either. In fact, the only sandwich available at Don Pepe Tortas & Jugos is the mighty Mexican torta: a submarine-shaped telera roll overstuffed with a bewildering catalog of fillings, many ceremoniously cooked on a broad flat griddle known as a plancha. Don Pepe and his minions, who labor behind a small window surrounded by seductive, brightly lit sandwich pictures, turn…

    Photo via Bowery Boogie There's been a mass exodus from Orchard Street's Pink Building ever since Waterbridge Capital bought it for $27 million last summer. JFK Restaurant Supply picked up and moved to Canal Street, Jodamo downsized from two floors to one, Modern Decor crossed the river to Brooklyn (291 Avenue S), and Cellini Uomo moved further up the block to number 133. The reason for the flight? The building is possibly being covered to a "Chelsea Market style enterprise," Bowery Boogie reports, complete with "11,200 square-feet of high-end shops, and luxury living to match." · Lower…

    The Designer Collective sample sale kicked off this morning at 114 Stanton St., with up to 80% off threads and accessories from indie and local labels including Collina Strada and Lindsey Thornburg. Because the goods on offer aren't mass-made, some of the garments still boast triple-digit price tags; but we think this sale is totally worth shopping for the one-of-a-kind finds. Plus, some of the designers are in-store to man the sale themselves, so they're available to answer any and all questions. The sale is organized by designer, with each rack holding garments from a different label. We…

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:03 pm
    A witness to the aftermath of a Hudson River Greenway crash that sent a cyclist to the hospital says NYPD officers, including personnel from the Collision Investigation Squad, said they did not intend to investigate the cause of the collision, explaining to bystanders that it was an “accident” while blaming the cyclist. By declining to determine what caused a collision between a bus driver and a greenway cyclist, NYPD failed to take steps that could prevent future injuries.

  • Will Missouri Voters Go Along With the Highway Lobby’s Money Grab?

    Angie Schmitt
    30 Jul 2014 | 1:21 pm
    Next week, Missouri voters will decide on Amendment 7 — a three-quarter-cent sales tax hike to pay for transportation projects that would be the largest tax increase in the state’s history. Construction industry groups have poured millions into convincing Missourians to pay $5.4 billion over the next 10 years. Will they bite? A coalition of pro-transit forces is urging them not to. Thomas Shrout, a long-time St. Louis transit advocate, is heading the opposition, a group called Missourians for Better Transportation Solutions. Shrout says the tax fails on a number of levels. For…

    Haystack, the latest app allowing drivers to sell access to a parking space, blazed across the Internet this month after Boston Mayor Martin Walsh threatened to ban it. Valleywag called it a “scourge.” The Awl compared it to profiteering off access to clean water. The haters have it wrong though: The apps aren’t screwing over the public — local governments are. Following on the heels of MonkeyParking, Haystack is a recent Baltimore-based entry that borrows heavily from car service Uber for its look and feel. If you’re new to the grey market of…

    Buenos Aires is fast becoming one of the most admired cities in the world when it comes to reinventing streets and transportation. Just over a year ago, the city launched MetroBus BRT (constructed in less than seven months) on 9 de Julio Avenue, which may be the world’s widest street. The transformation of four general traffic lanes to exclusive bus lanes has yielded huge dividends for the city and is a bold statement from Mayor Mauricio Macri about how Buenos Aires thinks about its streets. More than 650,000 people now ride MetroBus every day, and it has cut commutes in the city center…

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.

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…

One of them is that getting “third party validation” by going outside of the current investor syndicate to find a new lead is good for the investors. I have come to believe this “wisdom” is nothing more than lack of conviction on the investor’s part. What “super powers” do VCs have that allow them produce above average returns year after year after year? Well you could argue that some of us have the ability to see…

    The Museum of Modern Art presents the first comprehensive retrospective of Sigmar Polke (German, 1941–2010), encompassing Polke’s work across all mediums, including painting, photography, film, drawing, prints, and sculpture. Widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of the postwar generation, Polke possessed an irreverent wit that, coupled with his exceptional grasp of the properties of his materials, pushed him to experiment freely with the conventions of art and art history. Constantly searching, Polke studiously avoided any one signature style or medium; his method…

    Uber announced it will be temporarily offering cheaper fares for its low-end UberX service in New York City, making it cheaper to use the popular car-hailing app than a traditional yellow cab, the company claimed in a blog post on Monday. The move discounts prices by 20 percent, and follows similar price cuts in a slew of other cities including San Francisco, Chicago, and Atlanta.

    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 Thursday: Grant's Tomb (again)

    Michelle and James Nevius
    24 Jul 2014 | 7:49 am
    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…
  • Postcard Thursday: "Wrong Way" Corrigan

    Michelle and James Nevius
    17 Jul 2014 | 9:08 am
    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…

    1856 Campaign Poster for Millard FillmoreToday marks the 164th anniversary of the inauguration of former New York State comptroller and Alec Baldwin lookalike, Millard Fillmore, often considered one of America’s worst presidents.Fillmore, a Whig congressman, was vice president under war hero Zachary Taylor. Fillmore had been picked to balance not just the north-south axis (Taylor was from Louisiana) but to add someone with political experience to the ticket. Fillmore was a good middle-of-the-road candidate: he was opposed to slavery, but not a firebrand like New York senator William H.

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. The 85th Anniversary party was held at The Blue Room at the Gansevoort Hotel Park Avenue and was…

    Perched atop The Water Club on the East River of Manhattan lies the perfect  place for outdoor drinking and dining and it’s totally worth checking out, its called The Crow’s Nest.  While The Water Club is a fancy schmancy white table cloth restaurant, The Crows Nest has a casual laid back vibe with terrific drinks and a small but delicious food menu, plus you get the same sweeping river views. While many of Manhattan’s best outdoor spots get super crazy and crowded in the summer, somehow The Crow’s Nest manages to escape much of the outdoor party crowd chaos.

    30 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Nothing says summertime fun like bubbles, but add a little color and take your bubble play to a whole new level. This simple project is a little bit art, a little bit science, and a whole lot of fun. Little kids love the anticipation of watching the bubbles burst into blooms of color. You can also experiment a bit with mixing colors each time you blow a new bubble. This is probably the one time my daughter was not sad that I burst her bubble!. read more

    Seeing Theatreworks USA's annual FREE show at the Lucille Lortel Theatre is as much of a rite of summer for me and my kid as hitting the beach, the pool and the playground. But I was a little worried when I heard that this year, the family theater company was going to musicalize The Lightning Thief, the first novel in Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. My kid doesn't get into fantasy stories so she's never read the books about the 12-year-old demigod and his pals. I figured this show just wouldn't be her kind of thing. Boy was I wrong.

    Fishing is a classic summertime activity but it can only be done outside of NYC, right? Wrong. My husband and I have been fishing with our nine-year-old son in the five boroughs since he was a preschooler. It's relaxing and a great way to bond, plus it teaches patience (you definitely need it for this sport). Not only does NYC offer different kinds of fishing experiences (freshwater, salt water, catch-and-release), there are organizations that even supply the rod, reel, tackle and bait so all you need to bring is a good attitude. Children under age 16 don’t need a license to fish in…

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.

    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.

    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…

    PIZZA BY THE BOROUGHby Jerry Del Priore The "M.O.R." at Denino's Pizzeria & Tavern in Port Richmond, Staten Island.  {credit}Whenever I have a hankering for delicious pizza and my appetite is up for the challenge, more often than not, the brick oven variety gets the call. While New Yorkers are familiar with the great brick oven places in Brooklyn and Manhattan, in particular, Staten Island seems to fall by the wayside, unless, of course, you’re from the borough and know where to go. For me, if I am on the island, I can’t pass up eating at old favorite Denino's…

    by Tracy KalerBanksy's "Hammer Boy" at 79th and BroadwayYou probably remember all the fuss over Banksy and the impression the artist left on New York City last fall. The UK-based street painter spread his controversial work around town for 31 days, and no one knew where he would strike next, which was part of the intrigue. He kept New Yorkers guessing, watching and talking, and the media following his every tag.Read more »

    IN MY NEW YORK KITCHENby Tracy and Mike KalerMoules Marinière are inexpensive, quick, and an easy, yet delicious supper.Sunday evenings are relaxed in our house and we almost always eat in. The great thing about mussels in white wine is that they are quick, easy, and inexpensive to prepare (even in New York City).So first, let's start at the beginning. And that's with wine. Before we start cooking, we like to sip a glass. Often in the summer, our go-to wine is a French rosé.I am usually the cook in the family, but Mike does a top-notch job with mussels.

    THE BEST OFby Tracy KalerIn New York City, a certain amount of neighbor noise is inevitable, but how much is too much? {credit}Have you ever lived next door to a noisy neighbor? I've experienced the screaming-at-the-top-of-their-lungs neighbors, the barking-dog-from-the-yard-at-all-hours neighbors, and the occasional-loud-music-playing neighbors.
