Reddit map of New York City

New York City is in a constant state of flux. There are few better examples of this than the ever-shifting (and ever-argued-about) neighborhood boundaries, which have a different name or border depending on which resident you ask and which real estate developer is trying to sell you on a property. To try and settle the debate once and for all, a Redditor created an official NYC Neighborhoods Map. The map designates 288 neighborhoods in the five boroughs. It covers the obvious and largely unco...

Play, the Spillian Way in the Catskills

Taking the weekend to explore the Catskills, walk in the woods, chase chickens, feed cows, sniff smelly cheese, do yoga, sit by a fire, tasting hard cider or potato vodka without your list, agenda, and phone is rebelling!

New York the final leg

The thing about New York is that there is such a wealth of things to see that it almost becomes too big a choice to whittle it down. We hadn't made a firm plan before arriving as we figured with 5 days in New York we had plenty of time to mosey around and

what i'm reading: working by robert caro

Fans of Robert Caro rejoiced when we learned that Caro, author of nonfiction histories, was writing a book about his writing process. When the book was published, I'm sure I wasn't the only one surprised by its brevity. At a slim 207 pages, Working: Researching, Interviewing, Writing is the equivalent of a post-it note for Caro, whose books are often described as tomes.I read Working over the course of a weekend, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Not only is the subject fascinating, but Caro's ...

Tips for Visiting The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

A person cannot go to New York for the first time and not go to the Statue of Liberty and we are no exception. We were hoping to wake up early and make our way down to the Battery Park early to book our tickets to enter the crown of the Statue of Liberty. Unfortunately, two weeks of hard travel had taken its toll and we slept in. Read the original post Tips for Visiting The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on The Planet D: Adventure Travel Blog.

Travel: Peel back the centuries in St. Augustine, America’s oldest city

My family finally took a long-awaited trip in December to St. Augustine, America’s oldest consistently populated city in the continental United States, established by Spain in 1565. This enchanting city on Florida’s Atlantic coast, oozing with old-world charm, did not disappoint. Our only mistake was not staying longer and seeing more of the city’s sights and beaches. St. Augustine has earned some well-deserved accolades in the travel industry. In 2018, Conde Nast Traveler included St. Augustine...

This is the Travel Take, where Matador’s writers and editors make the case for their favorite travel hacks, tips, and personal tics. We’re living in a golden age of travel.

Fort Lauderdale's art scene

The idea of going to an art gallery used to absolutely terrify me. Nothing makes you feel like more of a fraud than entering a room full of artists and aficionados, and pretending to be moved by a piece of abstract expressionism that, for all you know, is a picture of an exploded rubber band ball. Enjoying art at the amateur level can be tricky, because many galleries, museums, and art districts feel intimidating to those outside the art community. I had come to terms with the fact that I’d n...

What Staying at the TWA Hotel is Really Like

The Golden Age of flying instantly conjures images of attractive couples dressed to the nines as they board a small jet to whisk them away in what must have seemed like no time at all. Onboard they’re served decadent meals with all the finishes and afterwards they smoke a cigarette while enjoying an after dinner drink in the plane’s lounge. The modern traveler hasn’t experienced this kind of luxury in decades and that’s not likely to change any time soon. This desire to return to a more civ...

Bypass LaGuardia: Seaplane Service Will Challenge New York-Boston Shuttle

Cape Air won approval to start flights from Boston Harbor to New York City, at East 23rd St. in Manhattan. This is a one year pilot program for four flights a day. Currently Amtrak is desirable for its downtown-to-downtown service, making up for slow train speeds by avoiding commutes for passengers looking to travel between city centers. This service offers to cut out the airport transit while retaining the speed of flying, though of course is subject to weather more than train travel. The maj...

Tackling sustainability in sporting events

At the recent Super Bowl, the NFL focused on sustainability more than in past years with its Ocean to Everglades (O2E) initiative throughout South Florida. Efforts included education on invasive species, beach cleanups, food recovery and recycling initiatives. These conservation efforts are part of a larger trend internationally to shrink the carbon footprints of major sporting events. “Sports is one of the few avenues which can unite people of all different races, creeds and social status,” Mat...

Winter view

Our winters are quite mild compared to where I just came from. Still, even though we had ice and snow during my visit to upstate New York, everyone told me that, except for that week, their winter has been unusually mild. I guess I was in the right place at the wrong time. A winter view of our little hamlet from out in the vineyards. January and February are normally our coldest months. But not this year. We haven't even been close to seeing snow so far this year. We usually have a snowfall or...

NGO sending on birthright trip

Ta-Nehisi Coates mused, in his 2015 book, Between the World and Me, about the nature of the relationship between black Americans and travel. “It had never occurred to me to leave America — not even temporarily,” he says, elaborating that a friend of his “once said that he used to think of traveling as a pointless luxury, like blowing the rent check on a pink suit.” Black Americans still struggle to find access to the same avenues and institutions available to other Americans. We have been ba...

Home again

As many of you already know, one of my aunts passed away last week. I hurriedly put together a trip back to upstate New York hoping that I might see her before the end, but I didn't make it in time. Still, it was good to be there with the family to share grief and memories and to catch up with each other. Clifton Park, NY. By morning the streets were clean, but cars remained coated with a layer of ice and snow. I am not used to that kind of cold. The travel was eventful. Because it was a last-...
