Best burgers in New York City

Burgers are tried and true, and you can’t go wrong with eating one for your next meal. They’re envisioned by many outside of the United States as the standard American food, and we within the US embrace that wholeheartedly. In New York City alone, you can’t walk a few blocks without passing a place that includes burgers on its menu. As the home of Shake Shack, we’d be remiss not to mention it, and while the now-international chain is delicious in its own right, there are plenty of other place...

Locked and Loaded: Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud Discuss Their Classic 1988 Hip-Hop Debut

In the late '80s, they rode the cresting wave of the hip-hop duos. Likely born from the synergistic energy produced by seminal acts like Eric B. & Rakim, Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud were one of many rap duos competing for a place at the DJs turntable. They hit one nifty cut out of the park with the snappishly urban strut of "Do the James", a jam that tipped its hat to the legendary James Brown as well as the hyperkinetic basement hip-hop parties that were especially popular in the Bronx at th...

Strange blue light in New York City

It looked like a scene out of Independence Day just before the aliens descended on New York City. A strange blue light flooded the night sky over NYC around 9:12 PM last night, and New Yorkers gazed with wonder and a little fear. Bill San Antonio, who was watching the phenomenon from a terminal at LaGuardia Airport described it to The New York Times as “a sort of unnatural, fluorescent shade of blue.” Yiota Andritsakis, a resident of Astoria, said, “We thought it was a U.F.O.” Aliens att...

Bright light in big city mystifies New Yorkers after transformer fire

"There was a boom and a bang and a flash of light," said Jim Long, a spokesman for Fire Department New York. The blue flashes that briefly lit up the night sky in the Astoria area of Queens, New York, shortly after 9 p.m. (0200 GMT) were caused by a power surge and electrical "arching" and sparked a transformer explosion and a small fire, said Con Edison spokesman Bob McGee.

Louise Goffin: "I'm Paying Homage to Everything I've Ever Loved"

None Thirty-nine years after she made her first album, the vibrant, slightly pugnacious Kid Blue (Asylum, 1979), Louise Goffin is back with a new one, All These Hellos. It's been a career of overcoming hurdles, living down (as well as up to) the expectations that come with music industry parentage, sometimes taking a step to one side and playing for other people (Bryan Ferry, Tears For Fears), and then coming back center-stage with another strong album. Sometimes, her albums struggle to get...
