I don’t care how long I’ve lived in New York, I will always look both ways before crossing the street. As far as I’m concerned, YOU GOTTA. And although this shit seems obvious to me, I get corrected and made fun of ALL THE TIME for this, like only looking one way is some right […]
Let me tell you something honestly. I love Dunkin’ Donuts. DD is there for me when I’m stuck in some random neighborhood and need to rely on a tasty treat for less than $5, and less than 500 calories. (I’m looking at you, egg white flat-bread). DD is legit when I need an iced latte […]
Last year I was looking for apartments with my boyfriend. A broker posted a listing for a “cozy-but-newly-remodeled gem on Grand Army Plaza.” It was a studio for $1600, which I thought was a decent price given the location.
Remember back in August when it was 80-something degrees all the damn time, and everyone was sticky on the subway, leaving ass prints on the bench and whatnot? Yeah–remember that? Remember how we wistfully longed for the days of t-shirt weather and a life so luxurious that we could function outside of the vicinity of […]
New York has the holidays that it loves, and those are generally party holidays. But Halloween holds a special place in most people’s hearts because unlike all the others, it has costumes. This invites the weird, the wonderful, and for some, a reason to spend a lot of money on a sexy outfit that kinda […]
For me, driving is a novelty. Growing up in NYC, about 75% of us never bothered to get a license until long after high school, when the reality of leaving our metropolitan bubble became appealing. These days, I have a license but I still don’t drive (the result of an unexpectedly traumatic meeting of my […]
$1150/800ft – ONE CORPORATE GRINDER SEEKS INANIMATE BLOW UP DOLL THAT DISPENSES RENT AND DOESN’T MIND THE C TRAIN (Trendy Neighborhood) Looking for a roommate to share my three room apartment. Yes, that’s right: bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. THREE ROOMS. How else did you think I could afford this place?
Call the papers! A Dunkin’ Donuts has opened–but not just anywhere. It’s on *GASP* the corner of N 7th and BEDFORD AVENUE!! People are upset. REALLY upset. Why? Because people are ridiculous, that’s why.
It doesn’t get much more obvious than this. We don’t actually need to be told, as children are, that if we see something that transcends the traditional bounds of sketchiness, we ought to inform the proper authorities. A little common sense goes a long way when things get weird. Unfortunately, you can’t always do something […]
As we know, New Yorkers are seriously defensive. People are always looking out when they run around this concrete jungle, knowing anyone, anything is suspect. Seriously, I get that we have an attitude of “GET DA FUCK OUTTA MY WAY.” And maybe yes, at times, we can be a little rude, but there are reasons […]
