Woohoo! It’s a short work week! I was really scratching my head on Monday as to why we’re still celebrating President’s Day. After all, the one we have in office now is a total ass clown and the ones who founded the country thought it was cool to own people. It might be time to […]
Well here’s a novel idea. New Yorker Parker Shinn has started a Kickstarter to fund a pontoon bridge across the east river during the L Train shutdown. He estimates that costs could be completely covered by a $1 toll and notes that people (and military) have been using pontoons for over a 1000 years. Shinn […]
We’re still very sad that Rye is closing tomorrow. Now we’re learning that the classic diner Garden Grill is closing as well. According to Karasakalides, landlords Chris and Donna Siafakes — who are also the owners of iconic Greenpoint doughnut shop Peter Pan — haven’t given him a lease in five years, making it impossible to plan for the […]
Nothing pithy or illuminating to say this week, just more metal. Not that anyone’s complaining… WHAT TO HEAR: At the vanguard of this week’s releases are Harakiri For The Sky and their sweeping fourth full-length, Arson (Art of Propaganda). Widely regarded as one of the most redeemable post-black-metal acts in the infinite yawning maw of […]

The MTA and DOT announced their plans for increased ferry service at a Community Board 1 presentation on Tuesday: during rush hours (which have yet to be defined), the plan is to run 8 boats per hour in […]
Love is in the air … or not. Let’s face it – Valentines Day is one of those holidays you either love, or love to hate. It’s totally okay to be one of the many New Yorkers who is still swiping left, waiting for that special someone. And if you there wasn’t a heart-shaped box of […]
There are approximately 5 bookstores in all of New York City, so we’re excited that Williamsburg is becoming a mecca for book readers. We already have Spoonbill & Sugartown and Book Thug Nation and we can now add McNally Jackson to the list. They opened over the weekend at 76 North 4th Street: After more than a decade as an independent […]
It’s the dead fucking smackdab center cut of winter and we’re all hurting a bit on the inside (and probably outside too). But don’t worry, it’s a new week with new metal and This One Goes to Eleven is packing a few blunt implements to help knock the frost off. Let’s go.

We told you a few weeks ago that Little Neck on Grand Street had mysteriously closed. We’re happy to report that Andy Bodor, a former co-owner of Cake Shop, will be booking shows at Wonders of Nature on 131 Grand Street in the same space. They’ve released a schedule, with their first show this Friday featuring folk artist […]
Another wintry Wednesday has me bundled up indoors. I actually just returned home from St. Cloud, FL, where I was on assignment covering Dirtybird East Coast Campout. As you can imagine, the snowflakes are especially shocking to my system today. But perhaps even more shocking was my experience on-site.
