RIP Roseland

Aww man. What a bummer.

Getting my ass kicked at a Flogging Molly show in very early 2013 and kinda faking my way into shooting a Spoon show in 2007 are some of my fondest concertgoing memories to date. I’ll kinda miss this pit.

A fascinating history of New York City on the eve of the 350th anniversary of its renaming from New Amsterdam to New York.

Ichiro hit a big home run tonight and received this priceless reaction from Derek Jeter.

who needs stars when you’ve got the Oyster Bar?

For real though.

“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.”

"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.
