Cruise Lines Court New Yorkers With More Ships, Better Value

Cruise Lines Court New Yorkers With More Ships, Better Value Apr 20th, 2012 at 3:00PM: New Yorkers and most of the upper east coast of the United States have had few cruise ships to choose from. Traditionally, cruise lines sailed most of their ships from warmer, southern ports, which added the cost of a flight to a cruise vacation package too. Now, cruise lines are positioning more ships from upper east coast ports with a special focus on the New York market. The end result is,...

Lifelong New Yorkers are unreliable for directions

Lifelong New Yorkers are unreliable for directions Jan 10th, 2010 at 12:00PM: Don't ask New Yorkers for directions. Don't get me wrong, we're more than willing to help. But, you could wind up with some bad information. A recent poll of lifelong New Yorkers conducted by New York Pass, an attraction discount card, shows that most of us don't have the city's basics nailed down. Less than half of New Yorkers think the Top of the Rock is atop the Empire State Building: 41...

Accusations traded between police and detainees in Antigua

Accusations traded between police and detainees in Antigua Sep 11th, 2009 at 9:00AM: Six Carnival cruise ship passengers hit and choked the police. Or, the police punched the passengers in the face. A week after the half dozen New Yorkers were arrested, the only thing that's clear is that both sides say they're right. While on a 10-hour port call in Antigua, the cruise passengers paid a taxi driver to give them a tour of the island. The tour ended at a beach – rather than...

Find a cupcake in New York

Find a cupcake in New York Feb 24th, 2009 at 9:00AM: Leave it to New Yorkers to be picky and demanding. Whether it's upscale meals or obscure vodka brands, we want what we want, and if you don't carry it, you're somehow "lesser." Cupcakes are no different. From my window, I can see the Upper West Side's Magnolia Bakery (one of three in the city), and there are many others. In The Atlantic Monthly, a close look is taken at cupcakes, particularly in...

Tour the world's vandalism

Tour the world's vandalism Feb 9th, 2009 at 9:00AM: Eyesore or art, graffiti is part of any culture's public dialogue. Vandalism is visual profanity, and we all swear in our own f---ing ways. I've been drawn to these wall scrawls for a while, probably since I read Holden Caulfield's concerns about the subject in Catcher in the Rye. My fascination gained momentum while I was stationed in South Korea. A soldiers' bar in Tong Du Chon (the Peace Club,...

Jauntsetter - Travel deals for New Yorkers Jan 13th, 2009 at 10:30AM: New York, New York. You wanna be a part of it ... but sometimes you need to get the heck out of it. Good news! There's a website called Jauntsetter that has travel deals specifically for New Yorkers. They know we're too busy to find them ourselves, and that if no one hands us a deal we might just not go anywhere. I mean, we can get any food you can imagine, and there's always some part of the city...
