My nanny immigrant mother

My mother arrived in New York two weeks before she turned 22. It was 1988 and her first time on an airplane. Her uncle’s ex-wife and her two cousins greeted her at the airport; they drove her all the way across the country to where they lived in Washington State. My mother, like many Moroccans, migrated to the United States on her own under a tourist visa. Like so many other immigrants, she was searching for a better life. *** People often ask me, “Where are your parents from?” or “Where did y...

The Best Coming-Of-Age Movies

Growing up is hard to do. Before "adulting" — that is, clumsily impersonating our role models and pretending we have our lives together — became a buzzword, we "came of age." The action is still the same: staying out too late and trying to "find ourselves," or building a new life in a strange city.The best thing about coming-of-age movies is that you can watch them and get a better understanding of yourself today. The awkwardness of getting older is more than acne and puberty, and more than the...

These images of a ridiculous bus line caused by NYC subway delays show just miserable the state of public transit has become

On Tuesday morning, mechanical and signal problems resulted in delays for over six MTA subway lines used by commuters in NYC. The delays began a little before 5:30 a.m. and continued throughout Tuesday morning. Twitter users posted photos and videos of a line wrapping around a block in Astoria, Queens for the M60 bus that resulted from delays to the N train. Delays have become an epidemic for the New York subway system, as just 65% of trains reach their destination within five minutes of th...

Gowanus Inn in Brooklyn: A Hotel Inspired by 1950s Americana

The design of the Gowanus Inn & Yard, a new 76-room hotel in Gowanus, Brooklyn, near Park Slope, was inspired by a subdued 1950s painting of a middle-class American family by San Francisco artist Robert Bechtle. Savvy Studio, an architecture and branding studio based in NYC and Mexico, translated the painting’s muted colors and familiar feel into a design for the hotel that is “authentic, simple, and real,” says studio strategist Pierre-Olivier Carrier: “It is about blending functionality with d...

A Warm, Minimalist Duplex in Brooklyn by Architect Elizabeth Roberts

When a young family, headed by an “amazingly creative couple,” according to their architect, bought half of a period townhouse in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights, they saw the potential in their petite duplex, despite its decrepit state from years of neglect and a “careless, 1980s renovation.” They thought it might someday become a simple and elegant space, and had fallen hard for a mature, flowering dogwood tree in the backyard. When architect Elizabeth Roberts was brought on board, she tore down w...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle.

A 24-year old got a mysterious disease where her body attacked her brain — and scientists are learning it's more common than they thought

When she was 24 years old, Caroline Walsh started having disturbing symptoms, like forgetfulness and sudden behavior changes. Doctors incorrectly diagnosed her several times before she was properly diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis, a disease in which the body attacks itself and targets the brain. New research suggests the disease may affect up to 90,000 people each year. There's a blank year in 26-year-old Caroline Walsh's once-spotless memory. She's pieced parts together from stories ...

My new Nintendo Switch addiction is the $15 farming simulator that turned one guy into a millionaire

"Stardew Valley" is a farming simulation video game for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. I've been playing it on the Nintendo Switch and loving it: It's the perfect game to play in the console's portable mode. The game is charming and relaxing: While it's not action-packed, it's extremely rewarding to cultivate your farm and get to know the townspeople.  The game was developed by one guy, who's now a multimillionaire after its smash-hit success.   Look, I love "Sup...
