A visit to Wall Street the day after the crash [PHOTOS]

A visit to Wall Street the day after the crash [PHOTOS] Aug 9th, 2011 at 3:00PM: On a normal day, the small sidewalk on Wall Street between Broadway and Broad Street is crammed with tourists. People in suits cram hurriedly between them to get to their desks. Of course, there's the occasional television truck or nut holding a sign. When the market turns, however, the vibe in that part of town changes quickly. The tourists remain, but they're pushed around by the increase in...

The four locals you don't want to take your picture

The four locals you don't want to take your picture May 24th, 2011 at 8:30AM: So many of my pet peeves really do find their roots in personal experience. I was walking up Broad Street last week, right by the New York Stock Exchange. This part of New York offers an interesting mix. There are plenty of professionals dashing from one meeting to the next, traders from the exchange (identifiable by their jackets) outside for a chat or a smoke, tourists with their cameras...

The most exclusive hamburger in the United States

The most exclusive hamburger in the United States Apr 20th, 2011 at 9:00AM: New York is home to some amazing burger joints. The Burger Joint in the Parker Meridien hotel, a handful of Shake Shack locations and Burger Burger down on Stone Street topped the list for me ... until I found some incredible sliders in an unusual place. Skip all the city's hottest dining destinations, and march yourself down to Wall Street. No, I'm not joking. There's an amazing hamburger at...

Bronx Zoo cobra on the loose takes Manhattan...and Twitter Mar 29th, 2011 at 11:00AM: On Friday, an adolescent Egyptian cobra escaped from New York's Bronx Zoo. The reptile house closed immediately after her escape, and zookeepers are saying she could take weeks to come out of hiding. While we can't vouch for the authenticity of the snake taking Manhattan, you can follow her adventures on Twitter, where @bronxzooscobra has been chronicling the travels of the errant snake with over...

US Helicopter suspends 8-minute service from airports to NYC Sep 29th, 2009 at 11:00AM: New York jet-setters short on time got some bad news last week. US Helicopter, which previously offered 8-minute helicopter flights from two local airports to Manhattan, announced on Friday that it is suspending service. The chopper company offered flights for $159 each way from JFK and Newark airports to the Wall Street or Midtown West heli-pads in New York City, but has ceased operations due...

See the financial crisis on this unusual Wall Street tour

See the financial crisis on this unusual Wall Street tour Apr 28th, 2009 at 5:00PM: It's rare that you get a guided tour through still unfolding carnage. Imagine walking through Aceh right after the tsunami or New Orleans while the rains from Katrina still fell. Lower Manhattan's financial crisis tour doesn't involve as much bad weather or physical danger, but it does give you the chance to learn about the most profound financial disaster in decades in the place where it all...

Making sense of the airline industry

Making sense of the airline industry Apr 27th, 2009 at 4:00PM: The situation is currently grim for airlines, having gone from "bad in January to ugly by March," according to USA Today, mirroring the U.S. economy as a whole. But, some feel that the worst is behind us. At the same time, a decline in business traveler traffic may suggest that we have a long way to go. That's why I love USA Today ... two perspectives for the price of one! Let's make one thing...

US Airways goal: survival

US Airways goal: survival Apr 15th, 2009 at 3:30PM: US Airways offers a story of aimlessness searching for an identity. Its attempts to go low-cost in 2005 never panned not, nor did its hopes of being a global heavyweight two years later. Now, it sits uncomfortably in the middle and has the unfortunate goal of survival. The CEO, Doug Parker, of course, has all the answers. He blames the industry analysts for making too much of the company's woes...

Undiscovered New York: Hidden Wall Street

Undiscovered New York: Hidden Wall Street Mar 18th, 2009 at 3:00PM: It's no surprise New York City bankers are not too popular these days. Between the housing meltdown and the bank bailouts, New York's most famous financial thoroughfare, Wall Street, seems to be in the news a lot, and definitely not for good reasons. Many visitors have long-agreed, regarding the area as a dead zone for good reason. Sure, there's a giant flag down there on the stock exchange and a...

David Byrne of the Talking Heads gives cycling in NYC a boost with his bicycle racks

Aug 26th, 2008 at 3:00PM: PopEater gave me a heads up about David Byrne of the Talking Heads designing bike racks in Manhattan in order to promote bike riding. The bike racks are finished and in place. Each reflect its location. For example, head to Wall Street and you'll find one shaped like a dollar sign. Here is a link to his Web page that shows the racks and where they are located. The video is a clip from this...

New York lecture by serial adventurer

New York lecture by serial adventurer Dec 11th, 2007 at 2:30PM: There's a reception/dinner/talk at the New York Explorer's Club tomorrow by an adventurer who just made a "first contact" in Papua New Guinea. A "first contact," for the uninitiated, is the first meeting between someone from modern society and an indigenous tribe. To put this feat in perspective, keep in mind there are still cannibals living in PNG. Here's a good story in last year's Smithsonian...
