A thousand copies of The Paris Review cover the ceiling of skincare brand Aesop’s new store in Chelsea, New York. Inspired by the literary journal’s New York Headquarters a few blocks away, the Aesop Chelsea store has its walls lined up with black and white photos and letters of The Paris Review’s history.

New York City? Forget the skyline. Photographer Navid Baraty, who has captured an impressive view of NYC from leaning off skyscrapers rooftops 50 floors above ground, recently had his unusual snaps adorning the walls of the Bowling Green subway station. As Baraty told Fast CoExist: ‘You feel the energy and flow of the city — […]
Adults who are old enough to have experienced A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) in their childhood will have feelings of nostalgia when they see this flash mob dancing with a costumed Snoopy in New York. The Peanuts Christmas performance might have been short, but it definitely brings out much of that holiday spirit for busy […]
NYC Taxi Drivers 2014 Beefcake Calendar is a pin-up calendar featuring New York City’s finest. By definition of “finest,” I mean cab drivers from now on, unless the NYPD want to take back the title by posing in their own calendar. Photographers Shannon McLaughlin and Philip Kirkman took to the streets of the Big Apple and took hilarious photos of cab drivers mirroring steamy poses of pin-up models.
New York City is home to a 60-square-foot museum that’s simply called Museum. Housed in a refurbished elevator shaft in Chinatown, this space was founded to celebrate ‘the beauty of everyday objects and the stories behind them.’ These ‘everyday objects’ include everything from the shoe thrown at George W. Bush in 2008 (remember that?), with other rotating pieces such as a collection of tip jars, photos of food that have been rejected from a menu in Cambodia, and different potato chip bags from around the world.
Halloween was a week ago, so now you get to see all of the amazing costumes that showed up on the NYC subway. People were definitely getting creative this year, and thanks to The Gothamist, we can see some of the best costumes spotted in the subway. Whether people were heading to the bar, a […]
Banksy’s latest installation smells of resentment. He wrote an article for the New York Times about the new ‘One World Trade Center’ project being ugly. Actually, he called it “vanilla” and “something from Canada”. The article was supposed to be another installment in his daily ‘Better Out Than In’ graffiti series. But predictably, his article was rejected. And like a sulking kid, he went ahead and made a big stink about it with this mural instead. Go Banksy. His work never ceases to make me smile.
New York is a foodie’s paradise. From Michelin star restaurants and world-class chefs to mouth-watering food trucks stationed on the side of the street—this city is alive with delicious eats, anytime of day or night. But what draws my attention as a self-confessed “college-grade foodie” (aka I never grow old of ramen noodles or pizza) […]
Ladies, did you know that you won’t get arrested if you walk the streets of New York topless? Just putting it out there just in case you plan to join the 80 women who have gone bare-breasted in the Big Apple. Portrait photographer Jordan Matter, known for his series Dancers Among us, spent six years […]
San Diego may still hold the mantle for the biggest Comic Con in the US, but with attendance breaking 100k yet again at Manhattan’s Javits Center last weekend, New York is catching up faster than a speeding bullet. The four-day New York Comic Con ran from October 9-12, featuring premieres, panels, celebrity appearances, surprises, and, of course, lots and lots of people in (often quite elaborate) costumes.
I had the recent pleasure of staying at the beautiful Standard Hotel in downtown Manhattan and be immersed at the same time in the ever-changing cultural and culinary scene that envelopes the East Village of New York. The building is 21 stories high, with 145 rooms, most of which have floor to ceiling windows and […]

That mysterious dark lord of the street art world, Banksy, has struck again, in his typically cryptic, enigmatic way. He’s been expertly fueling the flames of innuendo via his website of late, posting new work in LA and New York and alluding to a possible uninvited (but much appreciated) takeover of the walls of Manhattan with the accompanying statement: ‘Better Out Than In. An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.
