If you disagree that NYC’s Stop and Frisk program should be ended (or changed),

Read this article about Questlove being stopped repeatedly despite being, well, Questlove!. A few choice quotes: Questlove said his most recent stop was conducted at the base of the Williamsburg Bridge a few weeks ago following an appearance at the hip venue Brooklyn Bowl.

To New York City at Christmas time for today’s Top 200 Photos. photo #145 is: In 2006 I went, for the first time ever, to go see the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center. It was crazy to see so many people there given how cold it was. My takeaway was that the tree always looks […]

MoMA and Family BBQ

On my Father’s Day Weekend visit to NYC I finally got to see some MoMA exhibits I’d wanted to see for months. First off was a Picasso exhibit called “Variations”.

A Daily Photo: The Brooklyn Bridge
