Image via Urban Daddy Berry Park has been in the making for months now and according to a post on Urban Daddy, this Friday was suppose to be the big day. I just called, however, and the grand opening has been moved to the 17th. Woo is me. With 15 (!!) beers on tap, “beer-infused […]
Brooklyn kiddos collectively filmed, cut and produced a film about smaller Brooklyn kiddos: In New York City’s changing Lower East Side, a group of older Puerto Rican women are brought together with a group of inner city youths to create an original play from the stories of their lives.

MoMA has one of my favorite websites; it’s pretty, has intuitive interface and lots of fun flash.

Get off the internets and go do your American duty of spending money and roasting in the sun on this July 4th at Williamsburg Walks. Bedford between N4 and n9 are a pedestrian mall with seating, tables, vendors and all sorts of fun things. It’s going on right now and patriotic as ever.
This took a few listens (and views) to grow on me, but now it will be making its way onto a rooftop party playlist sometime soon. Download the song (for free!) here. According to their Myspace, they will be here August 15th, but it doesn’t look like they have a place to play figured out. […]
