Radar Image Times Square

NYPD in Bright Neon

Times Square is dead. But you probably already knew that, unless you like shopping for huge quantities of Peanut M&M's and spending your whole paycheck at Bubba Gump Shrimp & Cheese Factory (or whatever it's called). But don't brush it off all the way. Besides Jimmy's Corner, which we can never say enough good things about, you can still feel that New York hustle and bustle in this part of town. There are ...

Lunching on the Upper East

"Want to hang out in the Upper East Side?" That's a question you don't hear too often, but almost all New Yorkers still find themselves there at some point. Even if they live in hipster Brooklyn. I guess we can thank The Met and Guggenheim. If you do find yourself in the 'hood at lunch time on ... Continue

Radar Image Graffiti Wall of Fame

Outdoor Museum for the People

We don't need to tell you graffiti has a long history in New York. Historians may point to cave drawings and scribbles on walls in ancient times as the beginning, but we know it really all began here in NYC. Although you won't catch many freshly painted subway cars these days (like in the '80s), you can st ... Continue

"The Clock"

Whenever I'm meeting someone in Midtown, I never pass up the chance to say, "Meet me at the clock in Grand Central." If you know what that means, then you've been living in New York for awhile. There's something special about waiting to meet one single person surrounded by thousands upon thousands of darting commuters and photo-happy tourists. Amid the swirl you can check your i-Phone for an email you don't really need to read, or take a few moments t ... Continue

Think Italian, Buy Local

I love all food, but if I had to pick one type of cuisine, Italian would be near the top of the list. Luckily, New York still has plenty of excellent Italian food stores to help me stock up on everything I need for nightly feasts of pasta, sausages, cheese, sparkling water, olive oil...you get the picture. Buon Italia, Di Palo, Alleva, < ... Continue

Soup Counter with a Side of Challah

B&H is one of the last cozy, old-school diners in Manhattan (think Cup & Saucer or Eisenberg's). Every time I sit down here, I'm thankful it's still going strong. They say good things come in threes, and here, in no particular order, you can always rely on: a seat at the counter, a filling bowl of mushroom barley soup and a huge slice of homemade challah bre ...

Masonic Rock

The Brooklyn Masonic Temple just has so much going for it - filming location for Boardwalk Empire, backdrop to the weekly Fort Greene Flea, site of the occasional killer concert, and - of course - lots and lots of Masons! But it's the concert series, curated by Masonic Boom, that really gets us. It's only a handful of shows a ... Continue
