‘The Devil In the White City’ Movie is Now a Hulu Series From Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were hoping to one day adapt Erik Larson’s fantastic book The Devil in the White City into a feature film, with Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio starring as the notorious H.H. Holmes, thought to be America’s first serial killer. But now, things have changed. Instead of a movie, we’re getting a Devil in the White City Hulu show, and while Scorsese and DiCaprio will still be producing, it’s doubtful their involvement will go much further than that. And that’s...

How to be a PR Rainmaker

Tom McMakin The following is a guest post from Tom McMakin, CEO of Profitable Ideas Exchange (PIE).  Ashley looked out her office window on Broadway over at the Flatiron Building and counted the floors, calculating the approximate number of people who worked there.  It was daunting.  She had been a successful practice lead in a D.C.-based public relations firm and recently had spun out to set up shop in Manhattan.  Suddenly the landscape of opportunity seemed overwhelming.  Her old firm done go...

Immaculately Restored Film Lets You Revisit Life in New York City in 1911

Other than one or two of the world's supercentenarians, nobody remembers New York in 1911. Plenty of living historians and enthusiasts of the city have paid intensive attention to that booming time period when the city's population fast approached five million, but none experienced it first-hand. They, and we, can get no closer to it than watching the footage above, originally shot by a Swedish documentary team which set out to capture the most celebrated places in the world at the time,...

Pristine restoration of a 9-minute silent film of NYC street life from 1911

Last year, MoMA presented a nine-minute short film of locales around NYC that was shot in 1911. This documentary travelogue of New York City was made by a team of cameramen with the Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern, who were sent around the world to make pictures of well-known places. (They also filmed at Niagara Falls and in Paris, Monte Carlo, and Venice, although New York 1911 is the only selection in the Museum’s collection.) Opening and closing with shots of the Statue of Liberty...

My 2017 year-end review

Hello, and welcome to 2018! What a long, strange year was 2017. And what a perfect example of just how tough it can be to predict where life will take you. Twelve months ago, Kim and I were firmly ensconced in our penthouse condo in southeast Portland. We had recently returned from our 15-month RV trip across the United States. After a long stretch struggling to re-acclimate to every day life, both of us had developed routines. She was working regularly at several local dental practices, while I...

The Atlanta mayor’s office announced that for the first time, the peach will drop from the 120-year-old Flatiron Building downtown on Dec. 31. The new site is a […]

CAMERA SHOOTOUT: The Essential Phone puts up a surprisingly good fight, but Samsung's Galaxy S8 still holds the throne

It might seem unfair to pit the recently launched Essential Phone against a smartphone behemoth like Samsung, which for two years running has won accolades for the best camera in a smartphone, even surpassing the last two iPhone cameras. And yet the Essential Phone is a $700 Android device with top-of-the-line specs, which means it's priced and designed to compete with the Galaxy S8. So, after tossing its hat into the ring, the Essential Phone must be tested against even the battle-hardened vete...

Rare footage shows what New York City looked like in 1911

Early 20th century Manhattan looked much different than it does today. Instead of driving in Toyotas and yellow taxis, New Yorkers rode in roofless, buggy-style vehicles. Many of the island's subway lines were elevated above the streets, rather than hidden underground. Steamboats brought over a million new immigrants across waters. That's reflected in a documentary travelogue newly released by NYC's Museum of Modern Art. M ade by a team of cameramen with the Swedish company Svenska Biografteater...

Marvel at New York City in this 1911 documentary travelogue

This film of New York City was shot in 1911, and it is in excellent condition. Everything is in sharp focus. It is as vibrant and picturesque as a Scorcese period film. Almost everyone wears a hat. All the men wear suits and ties. There are all kinds of public transportation - trolleys, cable cars, trains. Lots of horse-drawn carriages, and more automobiles than I would have guessed. From MoMA: This documentary travelogue of New York City was made by a team of cameramen with the Swedish com...

The best breakfast sandwich in NYC is hidden in a popular tourist hotspot

It's hard to feel like a "local" in New York City. We're a city of immigrants, of neighborhoods in constant transition. Even our most famous foods — pizza and bagels — are being reinvented regularly.  Yet, it's food that ties so many New Yorkers to their neighborhoods — that makes a place constantly in flux feel like it has some stability. It's what gives your neighborhood character, and what makes you feel like a "local." Having heard of or eaten at a spot is the social indicator that you're p...

The life of a viral photographer

Sometimes, if we’re lucky, we shoot an image that takes on a life of its own. It becomes bigger than just us or our circle of friends and clients. That’s what happened to New York based Italian photographer Michele Palazzo. Winter Storm Jonas allowed photographers to capture some amazing imagery. One particularly striking shot was Pallazo’s photograph [...] The post The life of a viral photographer appeared first on DIY Photography.

Manhattan's Only Gun Range Is a Right-Wing Safe Space

The Westside Rifle & Pistol Range, not far from the Flatiron Building, looks like some dire conservative prophecy come to life—America’s gun-lovers stripped of all rights, forced to target-shoot in windowless bunkers. To the range’s regulars, that’s sometimes how it feels. While their brethren in Texas or Florida roam free, idly polishing pistols in line at the grocery store, Manhattan’s gun owners are confined to a drop-ceilinged basement, where exposed pipes, peeling rolly chairs, and thrifty ...

Nychos Slays In New York: IKONS Revealed As Never Before

"Scientists, psychologists, surgeons ... in the end we're all driven by a similar curiosity." This month has been a whirlwind in New York for an Austrian street artist/fine artist/illustrator named Nychos, and he's made quite the iconic impression. Anchored by a show that opened last weekend of canvasses and illustrations at Jonathan Levine Gallery in Chelsea named "IKON," and assisted by a co-branded sculptural event with the Vienna Tourist Board, the surreal dissectionist didn't rest there. In...

We went to the top of New York's latest skyscraper to find out how it's being built

Bruce Eichner very much enjoys showing off his latest building. We're in rarefied air, 777 feet above Manhattan's Beaux-Arts Flatiron District — well higher than the golden tops of the Metropolitan Life Tower and New York Life Building a few blocks north. "We're actually looking down on Rupert Murdoch's three floors at the top of that tower there," said Eichner, founder of the real estate development firm The Continuum Company, with a rather professional smile. He's pointing down to the top of O...

The Flatiron District

In 1996, Jerry Colonna and I decided to call our venture capital firm Flatiron Partners (it was code named Acme Ventures). We named it after the Flatiron Building and decided to locate in the neighborhood with the same name. We moved down there a bit later and I immediately was smitten with the neighborhood. I have made my office there ever since. It’s twenty years now. The thing I immediately noticed about the Flatiron district upon moving there was that it was unlike midtown manhattan, where I...

A brief history of The Flatiron Building

A photo of NYC's Flatiron Building, taken in 1904 by Edward Steichen. Fun fact: the Flatiron Building was not so named because of its resemblance to a clothes iron. It was actually named after the building's owner, Archibald W. Flatiron. Ok, not really. But *puts on mansplaining suspenders* the part about the building not being named after its resemblance to an iron is true. It was the piece of land that was so-named, long before the building was even built. A man named Amos Eno owned the pr...
