NYC's pizza Godfather on pizza

You think you know New York pizza. You’ve seen it in movies, waited in lines for the trendiest pies, heard all of the cliches, and eaten too many dollar slices to count. But few people really know the city’s full connection — both past and present — with pizza. Brooklyn native Nino Coniglio wants to change that. Coniglio is like a relic from New York’s past, despite being in his 30s. An old-school Italian guy with a religious respect for the pizza trade, he’s more than just a pizza expert. He...

"You don’t have to kink-shame or say that people are creepy because of what they enjoy doing," said Charlotte Taillor, who had hoped "to have a nice relationship with a nice community of woke people."

The hoped-for "nice community" was Bedford-Stuyvesant, and Taillor had moved in with her "kink collective," which runs "bondage workshops and other fetish events for the B.D.S.M. (bondage, dominance, sadism and masochism) community." The quoted article is "When the Dominatrix Moved In Next Door/A 'kink collective' in a residential area of Brooklyn has upset longtime residents and resulted in a culture clash and gentrification struggle all wrapped up into one fight" (NYT).But the battle on Quincy...

Guesty, a tech platform for property managers on Airbnb and other rental sites, raises $35M

The growth of Airbnb — and likewise other platforms like Booking.com, VRBO and Homeaway for listing and renting short-term accommodation in private homes — has spawned an ecosystem of other businesses and services, from those who make money renting their homes, to cleaning companies that make properties “Airbnb-ready”, to those who help design listings that will get more clicks. Airbnb has seen some wild success so far, but it turns out that being a part of that ecosystem can be a lucrative busi...

As Bay Area moves left, some conservative voters move out

Retired engineer Stewart Tagg spent four decades in the Bay Area — appreciating the blue skies, good schools and strong economy. But in recent years, his home changed too much for his liking: higher taxes, an open immigration policy and no end in sight to the state’s liberal direction.  Tagg, 69, sold his San Jose home and moved his family to Arizona in 2014. He used a simple calculation to justify it: 70 percent politics, 30 percent taxes. “I’m a good old Republican,” Tagg said. “I just saw the...

My Partner & I Make $165,000 A Year — & We Saved $65,000 To Buy A House

Nearly 10 years ago (!), I found myself in pretty much the same situation as the woman featured on this week's episode of Money Diaries: The Podcast: My fiancé, now husband, Ken, and I were trying to simultaneously plan a wedding and buy our first apartment in Brooklyn. It was stressful to say the least. And two years into being a mother who also holds down a full-time job, I still have to say that first-time home-buying mixed with wedding planning is more insane than raising an infant.I also d...
