Charlie Pratt's Prints

I've told this story before I'm sure, but Lord knows where. Many years ago, the photographer John Gossage helped organize a show of photographs by Charles Pratt at the Corcoran Gallery. Charlie, who had died of a heart attack at his gym four years earlier at the age of 50, had been the scion of a wealthy industrialist family. It turned out that John had other connections with the Pratt family, which included helping Charlie's widow Julie publish several books of Charlie's photography. Julie was ...

Ask the Salty Waitress: Why won't the chef let me take a picture of my food?

Dear Salty: I was in New York City recently and dined at one of those expensive, four-star sushi restaurants. It’s my once-a-year splurge. The reservation was hard to secure, and I was really excited to sit at the bar and experience the omakase menu from the renowned sushi chef. Read more...

Flight Review: El Al Business Class (787-9) From New York to Tel Aviv

I have long been fascinated by El Al. Since they became a Qantas codeshare partner in 2017, I have wanted to experience the Israeli national airline. Long had I heard that El Al’s long-haul staples – the trusty Boeing 777-200ER – were not as fresh and comfortable as rivals flying on similar routes. But when El Al took delivery of their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2017, I was set determined to experience their long-haul product. It only took me two-years! (NB: This photo taken of similar p...

Picture Permanence

Back in the saddle this morning—I needed to take yesterday off for personal reasons. I have a few more thoughts about "picture permanence" (PicP)—similar to "print permanence," except that not every picture has to be a print. There seems to me a division in motives for PicP. And that is, do you want to keep your pictures safe and secure for your lifetime, or last beyond it? I can see reasons for either choice. Another consideration is whether we're talking personally or culturally. I tend to thi...

Mark Zuckerberg says his plan to break Facebook in 2 could put its $56 billion business model at risk

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg published a 3,200-word plan to pivot to privacy. His vision is to split Facebook in two, creating a public and a private space for users. It will mean there are fewer ways for Facebook to gather the user information on which its $55.8 billion advertising business model relies. Zuckerberg knows this — but has answers for potentially jittery investors. It's almost a year to the day since Christopher Wylie blew the whistle on Facebook's giant Cambridge Analytica data...

An Honest Review of Gay Dating Apps

Everyone has an opinion on the gay apps. They’ve become so ubiquitous and ingrained in our popular culture, they’re impossible to resist. I remember the first time I downloaded Grindr—shortly after it was released. Once The New York Times writers discovered it, the app world seemed to explode with location-based dating apps. Gay dating wasn’t easy for a long time. I was lucky enough to grow up & come out during the iPhone generation when thousands of new types of apps seemed to be released every...

Amazon will survive the HQ2 fiasco. Its bigger problem is winning over reluctant advertisers

Hello! First, if you're a Prime subscriber, we'd love to hear what you think. Please take our quick survey here. What a week it’s been for Amazon. The company accustomed to being slobbered over by local municipalities got a cold welcome when it tried to expand to New York City, and ended up pulling out. It was another sign that the public's goodwill toward big tech is fading.   Amazon's business will be just fine without New York City. But more crucial to its business, and less publicly, it’s t...

Eye Prefer Paris Photo Opening

Is Apple Cider Vinegar The Magic Ingredient Your Scalp Is Missing?

The Reproductive Health Act of Horror: The Lies Behind Abortion Without Limits

New York has legalized abortion up to birth, and beyond. It is now legal to neglect, choke, or smother a baby that somehow survived the lethal injection and knife cuts designed to kill during the abortion procedure. To put a fine point on it, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) on January 22, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. This law legalizes abortion in New York throughout all nine months of pregnancy, even up to dilation. It repeals the safeguard requiring all ...

Why I Have High Hopes for Snarkitecture's Upcoming Permanent Exhibition Space, Snark Park 

Here in New York City (specifically SoHo), we've seen dozens of popup "museums" come and go as quickly as documentation that they even existed in the first place filters through and disappears on Instagram feeds. There's been a Rosé, "Mansion", a bubble tea "experience" (just drink a bubble tea, there's your experience), and a Color "Factory". Even Refinery29's 29Rooms managed to feel less like an art installation and more like a branded photo-op this year. What we like to think started off as g...
