There’s just something about New York City that makes you go to therapy. Ok, not everyone, but a large number of New Yorkers see a psychiatrist and their offices range in size and design, from opulent library-type rooms to tiny spaces in a basement apartment. Psychiatrist Sebastian Zimmerman was intrigued by the different offices therapy takes place in New York City, so he decided to photograph them, leading to his book, Fifty Shrinks.

The next time you hail a cab in New York City, think about the possibility of having a pin-up model as your driver!

What better way to bring a bit of unexpected hilarity into peoples’ lives than by surprising them with a hi-five? There is no better way… that is the best way. Actor, comedian and friendly guy Meir Kalmanson has recently released his video High Five New York.
Some breeds of dog are unfairly stereotyped, and none more so that the pit bull. We look at a greyhound and think racing, associate a chihuahua with socialites and the west highland terrier with monopoly. None of these associations are negative and, more importantly, unlikely to affect the decision of a potential adopter.
Every Sunday in the Big Apple one man is doing what he can to make the world a brighter and more compassionate place. Mark Bustos is a young stylist at a fashionable hair salon in New York City, but once a week he takes to the streets and provides free haircuts to the homeless.

Animal lovers in New York can now rejoice and might even look forward to their deaths if they are so inclined because it won’t be a till-death-do-us-part situation for them and their beloved pets anymore. Starting in August this year, they can make their own arrangements to be buried with their deceased pets – upon their legal deaths of course – within the same pet cemetery.
I’m from London, a city famous for holding millions of people that go to incredible lengths not to talk to each other. The morning commute on the London Underground is silent as the grave, people jammed in cheek by jowl, yet still trying in vain to imagine there isn’t somebody else’s face less then six inches from the end of their nose. It’s depressing, unfriendly, a little shameful and more or less true for every metro/subway/whateveryoucallit in the world.
Start spreading the news! In New York, mothers with deep pockets are now hiring professional organizers to pack their kids’ trunks for summer camp. It sure takes the rough in the rough-n-tumble of summer camps to an entirely different level! What gives? Apparently, these mummies with money want to recreate their children’s bedrooms within their bunks at camp.
Lost At E Minor headed to one of the headline popular festivals of New York City’s summer: Governors Ball, on Randall’s Island, just off Manhattan. With headliners including Outkast, Jack White, Skrillex, The Stokes, Vampire Weekend, and a long, long line-up of acts across the three full days of performances, it’s a huge event on a beautiful island, with an outlook across to the uptown Manhattan skyline.
If you could say anything – anything at all – what would you say to the world? We get to see how New Yorkers go about this task. A man set up a camera and left it alone in Washington Square Park, asking strangers to tell the world anything. What do you think people said to the camera?
The Willard Psychiatric Center closed its doors back in 1995, but after the closure there was a ‘miraculous discovery’. That miraculous discovery was more than 400 abandoned suitcases containing the possessions of their ‘original owners before they were committed to the institution’. This Finger Lakes-area psych center treated patients for ‘chronic mental illness’ and ‘it […]
How this can possibly fail to take off is a baffling thought: Israeli startup Cups has just launched an app that allows anyone to take up a month’s subscription to drink as much coffee or tea in any of its 28 stores or so locations across New York. Cups started in Tel Aviv in late […]
