You’ve got the best chance of falling in love based on a Missed Connection at the Morgan Avenue L train station, followed by Bedford Avenue and Lorimer Street, according to a recent Craigslist study. To rank the stops, the forumla used was “the number of Missed Connections ads mentioning a particular station divided by the […]

Lazy-ass census workers covering Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick, Greenpoint, and Williamsburg had until July 10th to survey approximately 97,000 households in the neighborhood, but they weren’t even cutting it close.

Last night Reading Rainbow and The Beets played at Knitting Factory, for an L Mag late night show. When we arrived the bouncer informed us that the DJ had called out sick, so Reading Rainbow had gone on early. No matter. The show was great — both bands have fantastic energy, with Reading Rainbow harmonizing […]

I unfortunately missed the Zaza set, although heard from some folks that they were one of the better sets that night. DOM rocked it, with trippy projections on a big screen behind them (that would also flash “DOM” […]
