Photos Capturing the Life of New York City Dogs

New York City dogs are a unique breed. The metropolis offers plenty of stimuli for canines — places to sniff and socialize, including dog parks for the average pup and criminally overpriced doggy day care centers for the pampered pooch. Dogs in the big city contend with tiny apartments and little grass, but their personalities cannot be contained. Life is bustling, and hydrants await. … Read More

Portraits from Brooklyn’s DIY Music and Art Space, the Market Hotel

If you live in Brooklyn, chances are you’ve heard of the Market Hotel. Run by Todd Patrick, the Bushwick venue was a Dominican speakeasy during the 1970s. In recent years, it became a spot for indie music acts of every ilk — including Death Grips, who played with a ten-foot guillotine on stage — but it was never legal. The loft space was also home to about a dozen people. They were recently displaced in order to get the building up to code and resurrect the Market Hotel with legal standing as a new “sustainable, all-ages, open-to-the-community, 7-nights-a-week home for independent music and art.” Photographer Adam Krause, who we first learned about on Cool Hunting, captured their final days at the untamed concert/studio space before its rebirth. Take a closer look in our gallery. … Read More

For Your Calendar: Hang Out With Mr. Met

This week the New York Mets and New York Yankees start what some are predicting will end up being one of the most disappointing summers of baseball in recent New York history, thanks to injuries, bad trades (seriously, Mets, you trade the reigning Cy Young winner?), and the impending retirement of the one Yankee that even Red Sox fans will tip their caps to, Mariano Rivera. All we can hope for is that there are plenty of unoccupied beach houses in Montauk, so we can escape the boredom usually filled up by our beloved baseball teams. But no matter how dire things look, you know you’ll still be itching to catch a game or two. And starting this week, the hardest working mascot in showbiz, Mr. Met, gets ready to take the field night in and night out. … Read More

Helpful (and Hilarious) New York City Etiquette GIFs

Our (and by “our,” we mean the Internet, as a collective) obsession with GIFs serves many purposes: immortalizing catchphrases, making pithy points, creating hilarious juxtapositions, churning out cat superstars. But the GIF can also be an effective educational tool, as evidenced by “NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette,” a wonderful new GIF series by New York-based artist Nathan W. Pyle. “I’ve lived in the city for 4 1/2 years now,” he explains on his blog, “and I’ve decided to start writing down some of the things I’ve learned in my time here.” His notes thus far are both accurate and important — particularly the one about the empty subway cars. (Good heavens. There are certain things you can’t unsee/unsmell.) Check out some of Pyle’s best GIF tips (GIps?) after the jump. … Read More

For Your Calendars: ‘Eyes Wide Shut’

You’ve seen Clockwork Orange so many times that you speak fluent
Nadsat, you think Lolita is a better film than Nabokov’s original novel, you know Full Metal Jacket word for word, and you made a low-budget version of an unrealized Napoleon biopic script. Congrats,
you’re a huge Stanley Kubrick fan. And since you’re such a huge fan of the late director, the next week should probably find you camping out at IFC Center, as the great theater on Sixth Avenue presents The Films of Stanley Kubrick, a retrospective of his most well known earlier works, including all the above-mentioned movies, Barry Lyndon, Paths of Glory, and many others. Some choices are easier than others (who doesn’t want to see 2001: A Space Odyssey on the big screen?), but there is one film of his that has divided just about every type of moviegoer since its release in 1999, less than six months after Kubrick’s death. … Read More
