Photos: Marilyn Minter Explores Sexuality & Femininity At Brooklyn Museum Retrospective


Looking past the onslaught of nausea brought about by the inauguration of Donald Trump this weekend, you may be looking for some sort of artistic counter-programming. It is especially important in light of the fact that Trump and his fascistic cronies/Russian handlers have already insinuated that they want to eliminate various major arts endowments. If you're looking for an exhibit that is counter to everything Trump stands for, we heartily recommend checking out Marilyn Minter's 'Pretty/Dirty' retrospective, now at the Brooklyn Museum.

Trump Just Ended Global Warming By Erasing It From The White House Website

Report: NYPD Response To Emotionally Disturbed Persons Leaves Much Up To 'Random Chance'


(image) When NYPD Sergeant Hugh Barry reached for his gun rather than his taser and fatally shot 66-year-old Deborah Danner inside her Bronx apartment last October, the response from City Hall and the NYPD was swift and critical. Danner, who allegedly approached Barry brandishing a baseball bat, had struggled with mental health issues her entire life. When she was killed, the NYPD was over a year deep into a new Crisis Intervention Team training program, created to teach beat cops how to safely deescalate encounters with civilians in mental crisis. Barry had not trained in CIT; nor did he use any of the tools he has learned in basic deescalation training. [ more › ]

A Brief History Of Delmonico's, New York City's First Restaurant


Until the Delmonico brothers opened their eponymous eatery in 1837, New York City didn't have a proper restaurant, just cafes and inns where diners had little control over what they were served. Delmonico's, New York's first a la carte restaurant on 2 South William Street, favored French cuisine, cloth-covered tables and a printed menu designed by the first "star chef," Charles Ranhofer.
