It's a cold day indeed when you find yourself huddled against what used to be the Rawhide bar, bitterly surveying a vanilla-speckled permafrost of banks and franchises and chain stores. Is it not enough that the pharmacies and Starbucks outnumber the sex shops and watering holes, and have for quite some time?

More specifically, these five are all psychologically and physically damaged. What Smart is up to is constructing a play -- it's another intermissionless 90-minuter -- in which the impaired gather without realizing they're about to help one another heal.
Those of us working to improve the health system sometimes joke that at least we'll never be out of a job, because there's always so much more that needs to be done.
Every year, the start of the holiday season in New York is symbolized by the festive displays in public areas around the city. Traditionally, we look out for the raising of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. However, this year a new digital figure is being added to the mix.

Friendsgivings seems to me like a uniquely 20-something experience, in which unmarried young adults with no children get together to eat, unsure if they're on the right track since they can't afford to fly home for the holiday.
If you're going to have an anti-Thanksgiving, or perhaps looking for something to eat the night after Thanksgiving, it just seems like pizza is the right choice.
As Americans, we have much to be thankful for. As a City Council Member representing the East Side of Manhattan, I am deeply thankful to be a New Yorker. Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for the many blessings that we have, and #GivingTuesday is a time to give back.
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons have been riding high since 1927 when Felix the Cat first took to the skies. As a kid I was fascinated by how these enormous titans were flown through the the narrow streets of NYC, and now as an adult I am fascinated by how they are created. VP of Macy's Parade Studios, John Piper was kind enough to give me an behind the scenes look at the making of these holiday icons. Enjoy the photos!
When I first heard about Barklyn Organics, I liked the idea of it. I've always fed my pups high quality food, but as I poured the 'Catch of the Day' blend, I knew it was different.
My daughter and I were standing in the middle of the baseball field in Inwood Hill Park, looking up at the stars, when something told me to check to see if the decision was finally announced. "NO INDICTMENT" stared back at me, taunting. I fell to my knees, crying. Yet again I was that kid watching an injustice occur right before my eyes and feeling helpless to do anything about it.

In a city that is still recovering from the shock of empty gas pumps in the chaotic aftermath of Superstorm Sandy two years ago, there are obvious advantages to being free from reliance on the island's declining gas stations.
I give it my all, pedaling as hard as I can. My legs burn. I am Karlie Kloss. I am a supermodel. I am a Victoria's Secret Angel and I HAVE WINGS DAMMIT.
There is no script for what to do with our students in situations like these, but I do believe that more than anything else, they need to feel loved and cared for. I ask that, regardless of how you are feeling, we all work hard to maintain safe spaces in our school and show each of our students how much we love them and care for them and that we want to keep them safe.
We now all have the chance to examine the evidence -- released last night -- in the grand jury's decision not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson, who fired multiple bullets into Michael Brown. But the verdict on America's criminal justice system is already in for many Americans: guilty, for treating young black men differently than young white men.
Singles are often grilled about their personal lives in a way their married relations rarely are. When was the last time your sister and brother-in-law were asked to defend their "married lifestyle" to a table of 12?
While teaching his partner dog basic obedience, the dog opened Ernesto's heart and mind to feelings of empathy, patience, pride, responsibility, and loving affection he had not experienced in his childhood or adolescence.
Moments Not Milestones,
Things To Be Thankful For,
Stuttering was always considered a flaw. It was something that I had to live with for the rest of my life. Something that could be fixed -- maybe -- but would take years of effort. Everyone stutters at some point or another but for me it happened more often than I'd like and at times there was nothing I could do to fix it.
Perhaps the call to examine this one case would be understandable if justice came more often, but we've seen these unjust acts in communities of more color for far too long.
