  • Living in NYC: The Food Truck Debate By Kamini Ramdeen | August 08, 2014

    Jon Favreau's new film "Chef" is said to be shedding new interest into the food truck industry. Here in Manhattan we are no stranger to the local food truck.

  • Where to Watch The Presidential Debate in Manhattan By Aby Thomas | October 03, 2012

    It may not be a “hot new fall TV show,” but tonight’s televised presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney can be safely expected to have a lot of viewers glued in front of their television screens. In what is the first debate of the 2012 election season, New Yorkers, like every other American in the country, will be eager to hear Obama and Romney square off on issues related to domestic policy. And while the “traditional” way to watch the debate might be to do so in the comfort of your own apartment, New York City has a number of “watch parties” that allow you to enjoy the presidential nominees spar and squabble, while drinking your favorite concoctions.

  • Tavern On the Green Gets New Owner; Opens Fall 2013 By Aby Thomas | August 21, 2012

    There were a lot of tears when Tavern on the Green, the restaurant located within Central Park, shut shop in 2009 after its owners filed for bankruptcy. Tavern was one of New York City’s most cherished landmarks, with the restaurant having being referenced in movies, music, theater and television. As a result, it was no surprise to see a considerable crowd hoping to take over the reins of the restaurant when the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation hosted a site visit in February. New Yorkers waited with bated breath to find out who would be bringing back a restaurant that has provided dining in the city’s most famous park for 75 years.

  • Famous Harlem Rib Joint That Served the Beatles Seeks to Avoid Closure By Justin Spees | January 06, 2012

    One of the things that makes Harlem such a fascinating neighborhood to live in is that while it is rapidly becoming a high-end neighborhood, full of luxury condos for sale, it still retains, not just a gritty reputation, but so much legend and folklore. The neighborhood that birthed the Harlem renaissance, and where jazz icons like Miles Davis used to blow back in the 1940s and 50s, is synonymous with urban New York character, and the mystery that makes the city so appealing to outsiders.
