Amazing Footage of NYC Newspaper Strike

Tom Falco | September 1, 2015 | New York
I came across this three-part YouTube film about the New York City newspapers strike of 1945. It was a 17-day event. It's quite interesting to see how people coped, or didn't cope. There were eight daily newspapers in New York at that time and people devoured them.

Blaming the Victims: 245 Years Ago and Today

Rahsaan Hall | September 1, 2015 | Politics
When we as a nation look upon the uprisings in Ferguson and Baltimore, and the marches in New York and Boston, the narrative denies these people the honorific title of patriots. But that is in fact what they are: patriots, people who love and strongly support or fight for their country.

Trip to the Vet

Stanley Ely | September 1, 2015 | New York
About two years overdue, I took my cat Amy last week for a check-up at the vet's. That delay was not because of the probable cost. It wasn't because of the distance, since the clinic is an eight-minute walk from my building. It may have been because the good-looking vet whom I liked has changed jobs and is no longer there.

Rebuilding the Upstate Economy

Andrew M. Cuomo | September 1, 2015 | New York
There have been decades of decline and a parade of politicians promising help that never materialized. It's hard to believe in the future again after so much disappointment. On the other hand, the evidence of rebirth is overwhelming and economic optimism is necessary to make revitalization possible.

'Goodbye To All That' (Apologies to Joan Didion)

Tom Allon | September 1, 2015 | New York
Like a young Joan Didion or a middle-aged Woody Allen, I have had an enduring love affair with my birthplace -- Manhattan, particularly its West Side.

Pity Party Worth Having: How Serving the Homeless Saved Me

Johanna Falber | September 1, 2015 | Impact
The question of homelessness, whether it be a stray animal or person is the same cause for alarm. We don't drive by a stray animal and not stop to help, so why would we not be concerned about a teen eating out of the garbage, or a woman trying to shield her children from the rain?

Revisiting Hogwarts

The New York Public Library | September 1, 2015 | New York
In anticipation of the Sorcerer's Stone anniversary, we researched that ultimate expression of appreciation and came up with a list of 17 things we wish had happened in the Harry Potter books.

Astoria Characters: The Queen of Ice Cream

Nancy Ruhling | September 1, 2015 | New York
Jane McGinn has always had a sweet spot for ice cream. She loves it in and of itself, but her affection for the beat-the-heat summer treat is more than cream deep.

The Black Gold in the Freezer

Liz Neumark | August 31, 2015 | New York
The subject of food waste has never been more popular, generating vigorous discussions about the amount of edible food that ends in the trash. How we create and think about our trash - like food waste - has evolved with the growth of our consumer economy.

The Food Gods Hit Rockefeller Center for Citymeals-on-Wheels

Gary Villablanca Duff | August 31, 2015 | Taste
Charlie Palmer's foie gras mousseline with bing cherries was also a favorite. Light and fluffy, it was beautifully smooth. And who could resist Francois Payard's tasting table full of macaroons? Each was accompanied by a wink and French charm.

Let's Talk Heartbreak

Lodro Rinzler | August 31, 2015 | New York
The thing about heartbreak is that it's a devastating but very honest emotion. Try to name another that straight up tells you what it feels like. With heartbreak it's aptly named: It literally feels like your heart is being torn asunder.

Tasca Chino Expands a Delectable Niche in NYC

John Mariani | August 31, 2015 | Taste
The menu is long with tapas, dumplings (above), large plates, vegetables, paellas and charcuterie, so I just asked Ureña to send out whatever he'd like. We cried "no mas!" after two hours of amazing food.

To Restore Trust in Government, Slow Wall Street's Revolving Door

We need to make sure those who do the people's work in Washington are actually doing it -- not worrying about former or future bosses at the public's expense.

Bridging Two Worlds

Davina Klatsky | August 31, 2015 | New York
The High Line's popularity grew so quickly not just locally but nationally and internationally, that it is now hard to imagine that this verdant world not only didn't exist until a few years ago, but was threatened without ever coming into existence at all.

Hamptons Journal: Food, Glorious Food

Regina Weinreich | August 31, 2015 | New York
Out on Eastern Long Island, real food and real estate rule, somebody who knows recently told me. This wisdom was proven at a special dinner at the Pollock-Krasner House on the waterfront Springs site where the artist couple lived.

Everything Is Rent

Janson Wu | August 28, 2015 | Gay Voices
The opening number about the struggles of paying rent and avoiding eviction, ends with: "'Cause everything is rent." In the case of Rentboy.com, that line takes on new dimensions. For so many LGBT individuals, sex work is a necessity, in order to pay for rent and food, healthcare and so on.

'Live' Murders in Virginia Show Need for Greater Training of Journalists Before They Go 'On-Air'

Sara-Ellen Amster, Ph.D. | August 28, 2015 | Media
Joe Little of ABC Channel 10 News in San Diego had it right. He saw no need for media analysis when it came to Vester Flanagan, aka Bryce Williams, who murdered two people and injured a third on air as his camera rolled. He quickly sent the footage to social media.

Finding Thrills in New Jersey

Helen I. Hwang | August 28, 2015 | Travel
When I was spending my high school years in New Jersey, all I could dream about was getting out and exploring the world. Now that I'm middle aged with two young kids growing up in Europe, New Jersey doesn't look so bad... at least when it comes to thrill rides.
