In Oaxaca, A Place For Friends

In Oaxaca, A Place For Friends Feb 26th, 2013 at 10:00AM: Sundays in Oaxaca are quiet. The stores are closed; the streets empty. There is buzz around the churches, as families mill in and out dressed in their Sunday best. Near the Zocalo, children play with oversized balloons, pushing them high into the sky. But otherwise, the city is silent. On a recent Sunday, I decided to embrace the calm and seek a quiet resting place where I could sit...

New York City can make you deaf: new study links city noise to hearing loss

New York City can make you deaf: new study links city noise to hearing loss Oct 28th, 2010 at 9:00AM: The locals hate midtown, and we just got another reason why. It turns out that visiting the most heavily trafficked neighborhood in Manhattan could be hazardous to your health. Noise is the problem. Of course, it comes as no shock that parts of Manhattan can be quite loud. People, taxi horns and construction represent just part of the list that can rattle your ears and, eventually, cost you...

Crif Dogs: The Top Hotdogs in New York City

Crif Dogs: The Top Hotdogs in New York City Oct 6th, 2010 at 8:00AM: The various hotdog-and-papaya joints scattered across Manhattan are great for a quick fix, but if you want to truly experience a hotdog's potential, you have to schlep down to the East Village. Tucked away on St. Mark's Place, just in from Avenue A, you'll find Crif Dogs, an establishment that redefines what many consider to be the worst form of meat. The small, dark restaurant has committed...

Flickr's New York: A tale of two cities

Flickr's New York: A tale of two cities Jun 9th, 2010 at 5:00PM: Tourists photograph Midtown and Lower Manhattan, while locals click their cameras in the East Village and Chinatown. So, it's clear: tourists and locals don't mix in New York. Eric Fischer, a computer program, used geotagging data from Flickr and Picasa to plot maps of New York and 71 other cities, using a system he created for determining which shutterbugs are locals and which are from out of...

What German McDonald's thinks of New York City

What German McDonald's thinks of New York City Apr 6th, 2010 at 4:30PM: Apparently Germans really like to visit New York City. How else to explain a new Big Apple-inspired menu of cupcakes, now appearing at McDonald's restaurants across Germany? According to food website Eater, the new German cupcake campaign features sweet desserts named after New York's "tourist hot-spots," including Chelsea, Central Park, SoHo and the East Village. The campaign appears to be a...

Twitter Giveaway: On the Ground with JetBlue in Manhattan

Twitter Giveaway: On the Ground with JetBlue in Manhattan Mar 10th, 2010 at 3:00PM: I was at the right place at the right time. JetBlue occupied the corner of E. 11th Street and University in Manhattan's East Village, giving away free tickets to anyone clad in blue and bearing something plane-related. The crowd rounded the corner, and loud cheers erupted as each victor claimed a voucher for travel. "Any city to any city does have a nice ring to it." The crowd dispersed a...

Undiscovered New York: East Village by way of Japan

Undiscovered New York: East Village by way of Japan Mar 11th, 2009 at 2:00PM: Japan lies more than 6,500 miles away from New York, separated by an entire continent and the world's largest ocean. But don't let the distance fool you - there's no place in the U.S. outside the West Coast that packs more Japanese culture per square foot than New York City. Throughout the city you'll find numerous Japanese restaurants, cultural events and businesses. Although the variety is...
