OMA unveils designs for zigzagging residential towers in Brooklyn

OMA’s New York office has unveiled striking designs for the Greenpoint Landing mixed-use towers—two dramatically stepped buildings that appear to be two jagged halves of a whole. Designed to frame views of Greenpoint and vistas of Manhattan beyond, the project is “a ziggurat and its inverse…carefully calibrated to one another,” says OMA Partner Jason Long. Greenpoint Landing, which is expected to break ground in August of this year, is located in the Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood of Greenpoi...

LGBTQ Brooklyn – A Gay Guy’s Weekend Guide to Brooklyn

This Week in Photography Books: Charles Traub

  My kids love the Beatles. Can’t get enough, really. (My son in particular.) Who doesn’t love the Beatles, though? Right? Those guys might well have been the four most-likable-mugs the world has ever seen. (You’d have to have quite the cold, dead heart not to enjoy some chunk of their canon.) Honestly, I listen to that shit all the time. I love that Beatles channel on the Sirius radio. One time, riding with my son, we actually heard a fan takeover on the station. Some Baby-Boomer-Jewish-guy bid...

Get The Scoop: The Best Ice Cream In NYC

Photo: Courtesy of Il Laboratorio. It takes very little convincing to get us to the ice cream shop. Rocky road for lunch, you say? Don't mind if we do. The only thing harder than choosing a flavor is narrowing down a place to go — especially since New York is home to many must-try confectioneries. So, we spoke with food writer Julia Turshen about our addiction conundrum. She went ahead and curated the best of the best — the cream of the cream, if you will. Ahead, Turshen walks us through t...

Michael J. Schumacher: Composing is Listening

Michael J. Schumacher’s 2002 artist statement on the website of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts is a very succinct summary of his aesthetics: I am interested in context, in defining boundaries and not crossing them. A piano piece is one thing, a sound installation another. The forms are different, the audience is different. The time, the place, it all has to be taken into account. Ultimately, we’re all collaborating with whomever’s participating. But the extremely wide range of Schumacher’s...
