Meatless Mondays are coming to public schools in New York City

Public schools in New York City are starting a meatless Monday program for student lunches. School officials hope the eco-friendly initiative will boost health among the student population and serve as an example for other districts to follow. “People are going to look at this, and they’re going to start to emulate what the New York City schools are doing,” NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio shared. The new program will be implemented in 1,800 schools in the city and was originally tested in 15 schools i...

OMA unveils designs for zigzagging residential towers in Brooklyn

OMA’s New York office has unveiled striking designs for the Greenpoint Landing mixed-use towers—two dramatically stepped buildings that appear to be two jagged halves of a whole. Designed to frame views of Greenpoint and vistas of Manhattan beyond, the project is “a ziggurat and its inverse…carefully calibrated to one another,” says OMA Partner Jason Long. Greenpoint Landing, which is expected to break ground in August of this year, is located in the Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood of Greenpoi...

Trained as a painter and printmaker and entirely self-taught in ceramics, Brooklyn-based artist Cody Hoyt lets his experience with the two-dimensional inform his sculptural work.

This Is A Tiny Hamster Rides Her Own Personal Subway Train

In 2009, Brooklyn photographer Victoria Belanger took Edie, her tiny hamster for a ride on her own personal subway train. Little Edie wandered throughout the car, checked out the distinctive orange and yellow seats and even had a chance to peek outside before having to “stand clear of the closing doors”. “This train is really slow.” Edie rides the model subway.

Shura (aka Alexandra Lilah Denton) follows up her 2016 LP Nothing’s Real with “BKLYNLDN,” a warm but melancholy tune of yearning. A little more R&B-inflected than her previous offerings, the song is rich, slow-burning and a tad sultry. The British singer/songwriter/producer also announced two shows—in Brooklyn and London, of course—for later in the year.

Tools & Craft #126: A Better System for Keeping Tools Sharp

I was wandering around the Metropolitan Museum of Art when it occurred to me: nothing much has changed over the millennia.Before the mid-seventeenth century, steel was not common. Craftsmen had a choice between expensive tools made of blister steel and iron tools that were case hardened to get a steel skin over an iron core. Moxon, writing in 1678, cautions the woodworker buying a saw to ensure that they buy one made of steel, not iron, because the steel ones were vastly superior. In the cent...

Kahlo: It’s Fridalandia in Brooklyn

I enjoyed seeing the Brooklyn Museum’s Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving, but the exhibit was about her, not about her art. (That was its goal, and it succeeded at its goal.) The balance between her life and her art is, as ever, askew. — Judith H. Dobrzynski

Derelict building is wrapped in tin foil to protest lack of affordable housing in Warsaw

Polish-born artist Piotr Janowski has become well-known for turning buildings and even entire locomotives into shimmery art installations by covering them in thin layers of tin foil. Now, the artist is back with Zabkowska 9, Take off —  a building in the heart of Warsaw that has been sitting empty and in decay for years. By wrapping the large townhouse in tin foil, the artist hopes to call attention to Warsaw’s lack of affordable housing, despite the city’s high number of empty buildings. Jano...

Popeye The Vegan

Most people are unaware that Popeye is vegan. I'm sure they also don't know that Lisa Simpson, Bugs Bunny, and Brian Griffin are also vegan. If they can do it, then so can you. Brooklyn based, Popeye the sailor man understands very well that a meat based diet requires 18 times more land than a vegan diet. That is why he's never eaten any. [Author: [email protected] (kane)]

Ambitious New Classical Music Radio Station Launches, Aimed At Young Listeners

“The launch of a new classical entertainment station aimed at younger listeners is based on more than a hunch. Research found that a new generation of listeners was switching on to classical music through different sources, with 48% of under-35s exposed to it through classical versions of popular songs, such as the Brooklyn Duo version of Taylor Swift’s Blank. And 74% of people in the same age group had experienced classical music via a live orchestral performance at a film screening, according...

Tools & Craft #125: Book Recommendations for Those Who Like Making Things

I read a lot and I firmly believe that no matter how indispensable a YouTube video, a blog, or a magazine article can be, the long form of writing - a book - can both entertain and educate the way no other media can.

Now actually I think all the books we stock are worth reading, but I particularly wanted to highlight some personal favorites. I'm including some of the many new books we stock along with som...

Farming insects too much too fast could create an environmental disaster

The potential of insects as an alternative source of protein is promising. But this week, Swedish scientists warned that more research is needed on the environmental impact of mass rearing insects before large-scale production begins if we want to avoid a potential environmental disaster. Writing in the Trends in Ecology & Evolution journal, the researchers explained that there is currently an “overwhelming lack of knowledge” about insects, especially basic things like what they need for housin...
