NYC's pizza Godfather on pizza

You think you know New York pizza. You’ve seen it in movies, waited in lines for the trendiest pies, heard all of the cliches, and eaten too many dollar slices to count. But few people really know the city’s full connection — both past and present — with pizza. Brooklyn native Nino Coniglio wants to change that. Coniglio is like a relic from New York’s past, despite being in his 30s. An old-school Italian guy with a religious respect for the pizza trade, he’s more than just a pizza expert. He...

Best Irish bars in New York City

New York City is a city of immigrants. From all over the world, people have come here seeking different things, whether it be a new and better life, the American Dream, or just a change. One group of people that makes up a significant part of the city’s population is the Irish, and NYC currently has one of the largest Irish-American communities in the US. The influence they’ve had on the city can be seen in many ways, but one of the main ones that people pick up on immediately is the number o...

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

The Brooklyn Promenade has some of the best views of Manhattan With over two million people living in the borough, Brooklyn is New York City’s most populated part of the city—but strangely, a lot of visitors and many Manhattanites don’t know much about it. Brooklyn’s big culture and attitude is reflected in its diversity of people, cuisine, and even languages. Many of the distinct Brooklyn neighborhoods are recognized as ethnic enclaves, hubs of a particular culture. Brooklyn is easi...

The Faint – “Quench The Flame”

Way the hell back in 2001, Omaha synth-punks the Faint played one of the most exciting live shows I have ever seen at the Brooklyn venue formerly known as Northsix. (It's the Music Hall Of Williamsburg now.) The Faint were some wild-ass wraiths, throwing themselves all around a stage that had been utterly enveloped in … More »

Hinckley says he’s happy ‘as a clam’ but lacks close friends

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — The man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan told doctors last year that he’s never been happier.

Best parks in New York City

While New Yorkers are still cursing the cold winter temperatures and Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog for being wrong about an early spring, visitors can look ahead to the eventual warmer weather. As it comes off so urban and metropolitan, New York City probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think of cities with vast amounts of green space. To the contrary, NYC does both, and it does both well. There are over 28,000 acres of park space all across the five boroughs, so you c...

New York with small kids

Marlon James: ‘You have to risk going too far’

In 2015, James became the first Jamaican writer to win the Man Booker. His new novel is a hotly anticipated African fantasy epic and here he talks about loving the X-Men, coming out and writing about violenceIt’s two days before the US release of Marlon James’s much-hyped fourth novel, Black Leopard, Red Wolf and the prizewinning Jamaican author has an air of baffled, exhausted ebullience about him.

Best wine bars in New York City

New York City is full of dive bars with happy hours, beer and shot specials, and well drinks galore. But sometimes, you just want to have a nice glass of wine and drink it in an establishment that will have more than the house chardonnay. While atmosphere is key, people assume all wine bars are pretentious and expensive, and they’re often apprehensive about going inside if they aren’t knowledgeable enough about wine. Yes, New York City can be expensive, as can wine, but there plenty of places...

Touring the Prohibition Museum in Savannah, Georgia

When you think of the first English settlements in the USA, you think of Jamestown and Williamsburg, but the one that really thrived and became a true city is Savannah, Georgia.

White gold: the unstoppable rise of alternative milks

How wellness upstarts spoiled milk’s healthy reputation – and built a billion-dollar industry from juicing oats and nuts. By Oliver Franklin-WallisIn the spring of 2018, New York was gripped by a sudden, very particular and, for some, calamitous food shortage. Gaps appeared on grocery shelves. Coffee shops put out signs, turning customers away. Twitter and Instagram brimmed with outrage. The truly desperate searched from Williamsburg to Harlem, but it seemed undeniable: New York was out of oat m...

This Week in Photography Books: Douglas Ljungkvist

  For whatever reason, I’ve never been to Sweden. (Though I’m sure it’s a lovely place.) I’ve been to Copenhagen, though, so the sum total of my knowledge of Scandinavia amounts to smoking insanely good hash in the commune of Christiania, watching my brother annihilate my friend Pappy in several games of backgammon. (Yes, he beat me too.) Something tells me, though, there’s more to Scandinavia than hippies and board games. I may not have been to Sweden, it’s true, but my neighbors down the stree...

AK Monthly Recap: December 2018

And just like that, 2018 is over. December was a nice way to end it, though. I spent most of my time in New York with a few quickie trips to Texas and Massachusetts via Connecticut, and longer time in Mass over Christmas. Each year, I try to crank out my final posts of the year early so I can relax — and I’m glad I pulled it off this year. And every year I stay off business email between Christmas Eve and New Year’s. (Though I did get one urgent press request on December 24 with a due date of D...

New York City is using technology that's never been used in the United States to fix a damaged subway tunnel and avoid commuting hell

A New York City subway line that was scheduled to close completely for 15 months won't be shutting down after all, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday. Teams of engineers from Columbia and Cornell universities studied systems in London, Hong Kong, and Riyadh to find a cheaper — and quicker — solution that wouldn't strand 300,000 daily commuters.  "Smart" fiber optic cables, lidar, and "racked" cabling will be used to mitigate further damage in the rehabilitated tunnel.  When New York Gov...

How to save on New Orleans Attractions with the New Orleans Sightseeing Pass

I totally geek out on discounted attraction passes. Why? Because I love tours. They offer you insight into the local history and culture that you may not necessarily pick up on your own. Sometimes you can. You can spend hours wandering and reading plaques, but that can be an exhausting experience. Depending on your mood for the day (and distractions) you may only take some of it in. And you don’t get the local lore and myths woven in – those stories that leave you wondering if you’ve just been h...

2018 Year in Review

I had big plans in 2018, namely to finish a 70.3. Well, we all know how those plans went. 2018 quickly went off the rails, but I did my best to regroup and reframe my goals.

January January was definitely a month of discovery. I started the month with an awesome trip to Disney to cheer for the marathon, but ended the month with a diagnos...
