Lime launches 100 e-mopeds in New York City as Mayor de Blasio reveals plan to fully re-open by July 1

Weeks after Lime became one of the first companies to win the bid to operate e-scooters in New York City, the micromobility giant is bringing e-mopeds to the city’s streets. This will be the first company to host multiple modes of micromobility sharing in NYC. On Friday, Lime will release 100 electric mopeds onto the streets of Brooklyn, with planned expansions in Queens and lower Manhattan in the coming weeks.

Steal This Look: A Danish Kitchen/Dining Room with Vintage Charm

Owners Johanne Landbo and Lukas Filip Fernandes of a 1927 townhouse in Copenhagen source most of their decor from vintage finds. “We always use the Danish vintage page called ‘The Blue Newspaper,’” says Johanne (it’s called DBA). “We spend a lot of time going on auctions and Facebook Marketplace and make sure that the things are just right for our place before we buy it. It is very rare that we buy items from new, as we like the personality the things get from aging. It feels more alive and adds...

Kitchen of the Week: A Parlor-Level Fort Greene Townhouse Remodel for a Creative Family (Luxe Marble Included)

Remodels are sometimes more like surgical procedures—with architects cutting and extracting and stitching with precision so as to completely transform a space without altering its bones. Such was the “series of surgical interventions” required to upgrade the parlor level of a historic townhouse in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, for a pair of creatives with two young sons. The space was divided into small, cramped rooms with little space for the family to be together, work, and—someday, again—entertain, ...

Industrial Revival: Atlas Repurposes a 1920s Abandoned Factory into a Creative Hub

“Deciding to restore the original windows was more-or-less a decision to compromise on energy-efficiency,” says Joseph. “We offset that by buying into a solar CSA, and currently all of the energy consumed by the building is solar generated.”As more and more city mice head for the hills, a rustic Brooklyn has emerged in the scenic Hudson River towns north of NYC. But industrial Newburgh, across the Hudson from happening Beacon, has until recently never been part of that scene. A once-booming indu...

It Takes Two: A Pair of Brooklyn Heights Apartments Reconfigured Into One, by Shapeless Studio

Lately I’ve spent a quite a bit of time in my tiny apartment fantasizing about how much space we’d have if we could somehow merge with the flat next door. It’s something all city-dwellers dream of, especially these days: pushing out a few walls and getting more room. That’s what a pair of creative professionals recently got to do in real life, in a Civil War-era building in Brooklyn Heights: seamlessly combine two warehouse-like units into one cohesive, serene space, with help from Shapeless Stu...

Steal This Look: A Remodelista’s Minimalist Galley Kitchen in Brooklyn Heights

When my husband, Josh, and I moved to Brooklyn Heights a couple of years ago, we were lucky enough to find a parlor floor flat that hadn’t been updated for a couple of decades, so it was a blank slate. The kitchen in particular needed work, so we called on our friend Malachi Connolly, a New York/Cape Cod-based architect, preservationist, and longtime board member of the Cape Cod Modern House Trust to oversee the renovation. Here’s how to get the look: Photography by Matthew Williams, with stylin...

Kitchen of the Week: A Plain English Interpretation in the East Village

The kitchen in the Manhattan townhouse was brand new, complete with sleek white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. But it just didn’t feel quite like home, which, for the owners, is mainly in London. Their solution: Commission Plain English, the bespoke “cupboardmakers” from the UK, to design a cozy kitchen that reflects their British roots. “The clients were looking for a feeling of their London home when away from home. They wanted to create warmth in a white box, while also ensuring the...

How Much Confidence Do You REALLY Have in Your Blog?

Watch this video I recorded in Brooklyn Heights today: Sweet view, eh? I made a powerful point too. Bloggers sometimes boast of their confidence and clarity.

Before/After: A Remodelista’s Refreshed Parlor Floor Flat in Brooklyn Heights, NY

When my husband, Josh, and I told friends we were moving to Brooklyn Heights from our hometown of 20 years, Mill Valley, CA, they were curious. Why would you move to gray, dreary NYC with its punishing winters and hot, humid summers? But with our two children (actually, young adults) in college on the East Coast, it made sense. And we were curious to experience NYC life after a long spell in CA. We were lucky enough to find a parlor floor flat in Brooklyn Heights that hadn’t been updated for a c...

For the Hostess Procrastinaire: 10 Useful Tips for Stress-Free Entertaining

We needn’t think about entertaining in a binary way: either a fully tricked-out fancy dinner party that requires wedding-level execution or a super-casual gathering that has the vibe of a Super Bowl shindig. There’s room for a bevy of other types of parties, and, to me, the sweet spot resides in that in-between area.

Moving from Boston to New York — 25 Tips You Need to Know

Moving from Boston to New York was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I made the leap after several years of running my own business while traveling the world, and I haven’t regretted it for one second. I grew up in Reading, 20 minutes north of Boston. After college, I lived in Boston for four years: first in Davis Square, Somerville, for two years, then Fenway for another two years. While I contemplated moving to New York in early 2010 (not coincidentally, shortly after Ted Kennedy’s Se...

Salter House: An Artfully Old-Fashioned Shop and Tea Room in Brooklyn Heights

Sandeep Salter has always been a shopkeeper of the most artful sort: Before she opened Goods for the Study and Picture Room with Sarah McNally of McNally Jackson in New York City, she studied fine art and worked as a bibliographer and archivist, and ran a small bookshop out of the MIT Media Lab. But it was while growing up in London that Sandeep first got the idea for her latest shop, she told Vogue. Here’s a look inside Salter House, now realized on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn Heights, next to ...

Jared And Ivanka Poised To Profit From Developer Tax Cut They Pushed

WASHINGTON (AP) — At an Oval Office gathering earlier this year, President Donald Trump began touting his administration’s new real estate investment program, which offers massive tax breaks to developers who invest in downtrodden American communities. He then turned to one of the plan’s strongest supporters. “Ivanka, would you like to say something?” Trump asked his daughter. “You’ve been pushing this very hard.” The Opportunity Zone program promoted by Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kus...
