    Not that Memorial Day Weekend is particularly devoid of sales (here's a bunch of 'em), but this one's extra-exciting—Dover Street Market is holding a rare sale beginning on Monday for its spring and summer collections. While we're sure what kinds of discounts to expect just yet—last year's included 30% to 40% off designers like Nina Ricci, Juyna Wantanabe, Ann Demeulemeester, Thom Brown, and Simone Rocha, for reference—we do know this can only mean one thing: They're getting ready to clean house to undergo one of its biannual store overhauls, the last of which took place this…

    Among the changing retail scene in Brooklyn is the Atlantic Galleria mini-mall rising in Boerum Hill, which Brownstoner reports is well on its way. Taking up a significant portion of this complex will be two chains that'll likely be simultaneously loathed by a community that places an emphasis on its independent businesses and well-attended for offering good services at affordable prices: Blink Fitness and Michael's. Both the budget gym chain and the craft store have been expanding in the city recently, with Blink locking down its tenth Manhattan location two weeks ago and the…

    When City Council members Mark Levine and Helen Rosenthal withdrew a bill that would have made the entire Central Park loop car-free for three summer months, the assumption was that City Hall was preparing to lead on the issue. “The council members have been working with the administration on this, and things are moving forward outside of the legislative process,” Rosenthal spokesperson Stephanie Buhle told Streetsblog in April. Last year, DOT repeated the Central Park plan from 2013, which cleared the loop north of 72nd Street from late June until Labor Day while allowing drivers…

    Stephen Miller
    22 May 2015 | 10:41 am
    Mayor Bill de Blasio made a visit yesterday to one of the city’s more car-dependent areas, on Staten Island’s south shore, to tout an additional $242 million in his budget for street repaving. The additional money will bring the city’s repaving plan to a total 1,200 lane-miles through June 2016, a 20 percent boost over previous projections. That street might be smoother, but will it be any safer?

    Angie Schmitt

    Complaining about traffic is practically a sport in Atlanta. Which makes sense, since traffic in the region is absolutely miserable. Image: ATL Urbanist What’s interesting, says Darin Givens at ATL Urbanist, is how infrequently the people complaining about traffic mention the primary cause of that traffic — the region’s notorious sprawl. He says: You can’t expect good alternatives to car travel to happen unless the built environment is accommodating to safe pedestrian and bicycle mobility. Atlantans often seem to have trouble understanding that relationship between city…

    Unlike in Mexico (not to mention LA, San Francisco, and Chicago), New York lacks a quality tortilla industry. The corn isn't the same. The nixtamalization process, which breaks down the gluey hemicellulose in corn, is different here, and the common practice in Mexico of using a natural alkaline called tequesquite, isn't a thing here. But New York has an upside: great sandwich bread. Read More

This bit from the post rings so true to me: So there’s the pattern: tech companies build dominant market positions, then open technologies emerge which erode the the tech companies’ lock on power (this is sometimes an organized rebellion against this corporate power, and is sometime more of a happy accident).  These open…

    Gene Freidman Taxi king Gene Freidman — who controls 900 yellow-cab licenses — hatched an 11th-hour deal Tuesday with Citibank to prevent the seizure of his medallions. Citibank sued Freidman in March to foreclose on 90 medallions to recoup $31 million in overdue debt. On Tuesday, Justice Jeffrey Oing said the time had come for Freidman to pay up or face foreclosure. “I’m inclined to sign the seizure order at this point. The fire is turned on,” Oing said. “You can’t say I have not given you a lot of time to work this out. That’s it.” The two sides then bickered over how…

    Instead of a postcard today, a stamp -- and a remarkable one at that. On May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first person to fly nonstop from New York to Paris. To honor that achievement, the U.S. Postal Service issued the above airmail (or "air mail") stamp on June 11, just three weeks after the historic landing. That was the same day Lindbergh received the Distinguished Flying Cross, but five days before he collected his $25,000 prize from Raymond Orteig for making the flight.The competition to be first to fly across the atlantic, known as the Orteig Prize, was sponsored by hotelier…

  • Passages: Inside the PATH West Concourse at One World Trade Center, and Beyond

    Teri Tynes
    17 May 2015 | 11:33 am
    For a taste of New York City in the near future, I recommend a walk through the new West Concourse of the PATH station at One World Trade Center.The concourse constitutes one of the first open sections of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, a multi-use complex built by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and designed by Santiago Calatrava. The most prominent above-ground features of the hub are its big combed white wings, poised at angles upward as if to take flight. The white ribbed wings are hard to miss from nearby streets in Lower Manhattan. Enter the PATH station on…
  • East Side to West Side: A Spring Walk in New York's Central Park

    Teri Tynes
    8 May 2015 | 4:00 am
    A funny conversation to have with either a West Side resident of Manhattan or an East Sider is how little they visit the other territory. Ask a West Sider about life east of Lexington Avenue or an East Sider about what happens on Columbus Avenue and then watch the puzzled look come over their face. It's understandable. For those of us who live here, we tend to stay within the neighborhood, whether for shopping or dining or entertainment. Venturing to the other side usually means a doctor's appointment, and it's a hassle figuring out how to get there.Chilling on Cedar Hill on the east side of…

  • On the Western Frontier: A Walk to the Whitney Museum of American Art and the High Line

    Teri Tynes
    25 Apr 2015 | 6:28 am
    This walk encompasses the new Whitney Museum of American Art and the High Line. The museum sits at the south end of the High Line in the Meatpacking District on the western side of Manhattan, affording views of the Hudson River. Just to the north, the Chelsea Gallery District straddles the High Line, so the elevated park affords convenient access to tangential art strolls. The north end of the tracks, self-seeding and intentionally bereft of plant cultivation, winds west to the river and then over to the vast urban redevelopment project known as Hudson Yards and to the Javits Convention…

    The New Yorker: Everything

  • Why Are There So Many Shuttered Storefronts in the West Village?

    Tim Wu
    24 May 2015 | 8:23 am
    At the end of this month, the House of Cards & Curiosities, on Eighth Avenue, just south of Jane Street, in the West Village, will close its doors after more than twenty years in business. It was, admittedly, not a store whose economic logic was readily apparent. Along with artistic greeting cards, it sold things like small animal skeletons, stuffed piranhas (which were hanging from the ceiling), and tiny ceramic skulls. Nonetheless, it did good business for many years, or so its owner, James Waits, told me. Its closing leaves four shuttered storefronts on just one block. With their…
  • Easing the Pain of War with Country Songs

    John Donohue
    24 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    This year, in honor of Memorial Day, there’s a concert on the West Lawn of the Capitol. Among the people headed to Washington, D.C., for the holiday is Bob Regan, a songwriter from Nashville who has penned hits for Keith Urban, Jake Owen, Trisha Yearwood, Tanya Tucker, Billy Ray Cyrus, and other country stars. Lately, Regan has been spending a fair share of his time with veterans. He’s the founder of a group called Operation Song, which pairs veterans with songwriters as a way of working through their pain.See the rest of the story at newyorker.comRelated:Why Are There So Many Shuttered…

    The news that, in a week of contemporary-art auctions that saw more than a billion dollars’ worth of art sold, the record for the price of a single work sold at auction had once again been broken—this time, with a hundred and seventy-nine million dollars spent on a so-so Picasso, from his just-O.K. later period—couldn’t help sending some observers, with what is technically called hollow laughter, back to 1980 and the conclusion of Robert Hughes’s great synoptic history of modern art, “The Shock of the New.” There Hughes wondered at how a “spiralling market” had made for “a…
  • The Quest to Reproduce the World’s Oldest Shipwreck Beer

    McKenna Stayner
    23 May 2015 | 8:58 am
    In the summer of 2010, Christian Ekström, a diver from the Åland Islands, an autonomous region of some fifty-seven thousand isles off of Finland’s west coast, began searching for a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea, based on a tip he’d received from a fisherman. The Baltic’s temperature is unusually consistent (between about thirty-nine and forty-three degrees Celsius), and it has a salinity level that is less than a fifth that of oceans. Its coastal waters are also treacherously shallow. All of this makes it particularly well suited to sinking ships, and then, once they’ve sunk, to…

    22 May 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Witanhurst, London’s largest private house, was built between 1913 and 1920 on an eleven-acre plot in Highgate, a wealthy hilltop neighborhood north of the city center. First owned by Arthur Crosfield, an English soap magnate, the mansion was designed in the Queen Anne style and contained twenty-five bedrooms, a seventy-foot-long ballroom, and a glass rotunda; the views from its gardens, over Hampstead Heath and across the capital, were among the loveliest in London. For decades, parties at Witanhurst attracted potentates and royals—including, in 1951, Elizabeth, the future Queen.See the…

    According to Chelsea Now, the NYC DOT plans to install "six to ten split-phase traffic signals in Hell’s Kitchen as well as tweak traffic flow in the surrounding area in order to ease rush hour congestion. The signals are also known as Protected Only Phase Signal (PROPS), a term coined by Community Board 4 (CB4) Chair Christine Berthet." The signals "separate the allotted times for pedestrian crossing and vehicle turning, the combination of which leads to a large share of traffic collisions." Other Vision Zero initiatives being proposed include: Exempting city bus drivers…

    According to PIX11, local business owners and truck drivers complained to PIX Investigates a few weeks ago about the lack of parking spaces available on 38th Street between 8th & 9th Avenue.  The cause of the parking problems?  New York City traffic enforcement agents (the same agents that issue parking tickets) were illegally parking their own private cars on this particular block.  Agents were apparently displaying parking permits in their vehicles to avoid being ticketed.  However, business owners claimed those cars were creating problems by causing extra congestion…

The top ticket issuer is a speed camera located on the Shore Parkway in Coney Island off the Belt Parkway.  It issued over $2.75 million in tickets last year - 100 times…

    According to CBS, New York City Councilman Vincent Gentile has introduced a bill to paint the city's curbs red in No Parking zones at fire hydrants and bus stops to make them clearer for drivers. "New Yorkers usually don’t carry a tape measure with them to measure how far away they are from a hydrant or whether they’re within a bus stop,” Gentile said. “Why can’t we go back to what we used to have and revive the old system where you actually paint the curb by the fire hydrant or the bus stop, showing where you cannot park?”  Gentile has not yet estimated the cost of the…
