James Gurney’s Living Sketchbook, Volume 3 – Court Report

When I first met author and artist James Gurney some years ago, I had the opportunity to leaf through one of his sketchbooks. Gurney is so accomplished that his sketchbooks often consist of page after page of beautifully realized paintings and sketches, usually in gouache or casein. My immediate thought was that he should publish them in some form, if only because I would personally like the opportunity to look through them at leisure.

3 under-the-radar NYC day trips

New York City has no shortage of things to do. You could spend years there and still not scratch the surface of everything it has to offer; locals are still uncovering new places after living there for decades. But, let’s face it — it can be a formidable foe to take on. And after a few outings of battling the beast, you’ll lose energy, get tired, and potentially burn out. You’ll want to get away from the hustle and bustle for a change of pace. Luckily, there’s more to New York than the five b...

Today's Urban Design Observation: Is It Possible to Break Subway Windows to Escape in an Emergency?

I hate taking the subway and I generally Citi Bike everywhere, including over one of the bridges if I have to go to Brooklyn. But the other night I had to go to Gravesend/Sheepshead Bay, which is out of Citi Bike's docking network. One of the reasons I hate taking the train is because it lacks escape options. Metro-North trains have emergency escape windows, but MTA subway cars do not. Years ago I read about a bunch of people who died in a South Korean subway following a fire inside one of the c...
