2017-06-28T16:52:00-05:00

(image) Lin-Manuel Miranda might have ditched Hamilton for the bright lights of Hollywood, but he's still using his mega-hit musical to make a political stand. Today he released the music video for "Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)," a track off the "Hamilton Mixtape," and, well, it's not a particularly veiled rebuke on President Trump's polarizing immigration policies: [ more › ]

(image) A gigantic old fashioned neon sign above the bar shouts DRUGS. It lies. There's not an intoxicant in sight at this pop-up shop coming to Elizabeth Street that publicists are branding a "non-alcoholic cocktail bar." There are no highs here: only lemons. [ more › ]

This Rat Dragging A Dead Pigeon Is Really Putting In The Work

2017-06-28T14:45:00-05:00

(image) While some New York City animals exist as metaphors for your commute, labor in the shadow of Pizza Rat, get unfairly pressured to be The Next Big Viral Animal or just flop down subway stairs exhaustedly, New York City's other animal friends are just trying to go about their lives. For instance, check out this rat dragging a dead pigeon around Central Park, pretty cool, huh? [ more › ]

Interactive Play Lets You Cosplay Heroin Addiction On The Bowery

2017-06-28T14:05:00-05:00

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Live In Theater's J & K 1965, a "highly interactive" performance piece surrounding the subjects of a real-life LIFE magazine photo essay about heroin addiction in 1960s NYC. I wasn't prepared to find myself holding hands with a bunch of strangers in the middle of a Lower East Side park as we simulated shooting up. We flexed our left arms and used our index fingers as faux-needles, nervously giggling as the theater director played trippy music on his iPad. We were directed to run in a circle and collapse on the ground while kids playing ball stared at us. It was profoundly uncomfortable, which was, I suppose, the point. [ more › ]

Cellino & Barnes Have Been Fighting For Over A Year

2017-06-28T13:33:33-05:00

(image) Few legal feuds have shaken the TV jingle community to the core quite like the one involving Cellino & Barnes, Injury Attorneys. The law partners and holders of the renowned 800-888-8888 phone number made shockwaves in May when Ross Cellino sued Stephen Barnes in the hopes of dissolving their eponymous firm. And according to a petition released this week, Cellino and Barnes have been dealing with some irreconcilable issues for over a year. Their ad still airs on NY1, but we'll never view it in the same way again. [ more › ]



For One Week, I Kept A Diary Documenting My Subway Commutes

2017-06-28T13:05:00-05:00

(image) New York City's subway system has been having a bit of a rough time lately, and to illustrate some of the problems riders face day after day, last week I decided to document a week's worth of my subway commutes.

In a 7 to 2 vote at Baruch College in Manhattan, the board decided to hike rents on one year leases by 1.25 percent and two year leases by 2 percent. The news of the hike follows months of negotiations, and was largely expected after the nine-member board recommended increases in April. [ more › ]

2017-06-28T11:09:00-05:00

The former wine director at Riddling Widow, Ravi DeRossi's subterranean bubbly bar, opens a different champagne-focused bar and restaurant this Wednesday in the bi-level MacDougal Street space.

(image) This morning the MTA reported "extensive delays" still rippling along the A, B, C and D train lines following yesterday's A train derailment at 125th Street in Harlem. But while many commuters are still attempting to get to work somewhere between reasonably late and extremely late, transit advocates are urging frustrated riders to clear their Wednesday rush hour schedules for a vent session in front of the NYC office of Governor Andrew Cuomo: the man who controls the MTA, despite his recent statements to the contrary.

(image) It seems like just yesterday everyone was freaking out over Williamsburg's first Starbucks, but now the Bushwick/Bed-Stuy area is about to get its second Starbucks, and I didn't even know it had a first one. Either I'm losing my touch, or Brooklyn is. (It's probably Brooklyn, but also maybe me.) [ more › ]

Now, however, Patton has been officially confirmed for the job. [ more › ]



A Negroni Fountain Arrives In Little Italy Courtesy Of A Top NYC Cocktail Bar

2017-06-27T16:04:00-05:00

"SAY WHAT NOW" was the reaction of cocktail aficionado and Gothamist contributor Dan Dickinson when I told him about the "Negroni Fountain" coming to the former Genuine space on Grand Street in Little Italy on Thursday. Dickinson knows a hell of a lot more about cocktails than I do, so let's take him at his word that this is some genuinely exciting news for those who prefer their alcohol in spirit form.
