History Begins Here: Starting a Legacy in NYC

Presented by Cole Haan

Proving that substance is the best style, earlier this month we teamed up with Cole Haan to present the Inspiration Workshop at Wallplay on NYC’s Lower East Side. Against the backdrop of New York Fashion Week, General Assembly teachers helped unlock guests’ potential via intimate classes like Sales Bootcamp and Cracking the Glass Ceiling. The Sketchbook Project inspired us with their mobile library of thousands of artist, inventor, author, and philanthropist notebooks. And evening panel discussions highlighted the incredible stories, successes, and challenges of driven and creative pioneers like the Mr. Gif team and Jerri Chou of The Feast. We hope you came away empowered. If you missed our Inspiration Workshop, check out our video recap and pics of the entire event, and learn why History Begins Here. … Read More

Northside Festival 2014 Highlights: CHVRCHES, Swearin’, Pharmakon

Five years ago, the folks behind Brooklyn Magazine and The L Magazine created what seemed at the time to be a CMJ Music Marathon exclusive to Williamsburg venues, dubbed Northside Festival. Over time, CMJ has deteriorated into a shell of itself: Lower East Side venues brimming with brand parties that wouldn’t even make the radar at SXSW and bills rounded out by major labels’ baby bands. With all due respect to what CMJ once was, the music portion of Northside — which now, in a SXSW-esque twist, includes innovation and film panels — has grown to be a much clearer representation of indie rock (at a time when the genre term has come to communicate very little) — and a cleaner go at music discovery. … Read More

Forget Karaoke: Here Are 10 of NYC's Best Live Tribute Bands

You thought earnest, shameless tribute bands were just for Las Vegas, didn’t you? While New York obviously has a wealth of original music to offer, we’ve been thinking: singing along to live renditions of “Fat-Bottomed Girls” could in theory be a lot more fun than pretending to care about DIIV. It’s time to take a break from nodding to noise bands and take your pick from this fine array of tributes to the classic acts we all totally still listen to, even though we’ll only admit it at karaoke. … Read More

Incredible 180-Degree Panoramas of NYC Churches

We don’t know about you, but any time we walk into a majestic building, one of the first things we do is lean our heads back to take in the ceiling, and to really feel the building’s size and shape. That’s exactly what Richard Silver’s panoramas of gorgeous New York City churches feel like, at least if you add a few degrees of lower back flexibility. Silver’s panoramas, which we spotted over at PetaPixel are actually frankenphotos, consisting of 6-10 photos stitched together in Photoshop — a beautiful way to experience these beautiful buildinsg. Click through to see a few of Silver’s churches, and then be sure to head on over to his website to check out some more of his work. … Read More
