The brand new Amazon Books opened today in NYC, here is my review (spoiler: I love it)
Being buried in paperwork isn’t really something we experience anymore.
So when you hear what I discovered about The New York Stock Exchange in the 1960s, you might be surprised.
But I felt as if I was let down by The Standard East Village. The lobby was great, but the rooms seemed off-brand. Different from all the others I have stayed at (LA, Miami, High Line). I decided to do some research into how this location was acquired by The Standard.
The Forbes Gallery which was located on Fifth Avenue between 12th and 13th St. in Greenwich Village went dark in November 2014. Then Forbes sold the building to NYU. I want to know: what happened to the art in the galleries?
UPDATE MAY 2017: Found them!! Coming up for auction, GREAT article in the NYT here

I met Mark Fisher at a birthday party recently. His company sounded cool, so I went to visit.
When you call Mark Fisher Fitness late at night and nobody answers the phone, you’re presented with a standard menu tree:
