Extraordinary photos capture the true spirit of New York City at night - Sploid

My heart.
"I try not to focus on the fact that I could never afford the house in which I grew up, and think instead how lucky I was to have lived there in the first place."

My Brooklyn, Then and Now - NYTimes.com (via rubenfeld)

"Modern apartment buildings on one side of Flatbush Avenue stare down at scruffy check-cashing and uniform stores on the other. In Red Hook, working tugs share the waterfront with spectacular views and a museum on a floating barge. In Prospect Heights, you can have grits in the morning at Tom’s Restaurant, founded in 1936, and then cornmeal-dusted skate with baby bok choy and leek confit for dinner at James on Carlton Avenue. In Windsor Terrace, Sunday-afternoon drinkers holding plastic foam cups of Budweiser spill onto the sidewalk outside Farrell’s, where Pete Hamill’s father spent many a twilight, while yammering 20-somethings pick from an impressive and rotating selection of craft beers at the Double Windsor across the avenue. I’ve happily stood at each bar when it was three-drinkers deep."

This is so, so great.

Indeed. Lovely.

A visualisation of a random NYC taxi’s journeys over the course of a single day in 2013. The way the taxi speeds up and slows down is quite fascinating to watch.

Super fascinating. Or just fun to watch the little dot drive around the city. Your call.

We sent Yo-Yo Ma and many of his close friends from all over the world to a theatrical props warehouse in Brooklyn to jam and it is ridiculous

This is a must-watch. Absolutely stellar. 

Been really into joyous things lately. I like watching, and then being a part of, other people’s joy. I like using the word ‘joyous.’ Like the blue Lego spaceman from The Lego Movie. Happy happy happy.

These dudes are having a great time.
