Kyle Stevens | May 27, 2016 | New York
It's been two weeks since I had my first experience under the electric sky and the only question I have in mind is what took me so long to attend the ultimate party? The Electric Daisy Carnival is one of the biggest electronic music festivals on the planet. The event...

Continuing the Legacy of Harlem Hellfighters

Rep. Charles Rangel | May 27, 2016 | Black Voices
For many years, Black soldiers fought in segregated regiments. While they were fighting to defend America, America was not fighting to defend them. Our community should be proud to be home of the 369th Infantry division, an all-Black army unit from Harlem.

Adam Sobel's The Cinnamon Snail Makes Vegan Food Exciting and Palatable to Carnivores

Brian Kil | May 27, 2016 | New York
Adam Sobel is as authentic and as transparent as one gets. Like the Manhattanite he is, he doesn't mince his words but stays true to his philosophy. He's hilarious as he's insightful, as sharp as he's mellow.

The City of New York has a $70 billion liability for retiree health insurance costs and other post-employment benefits (OPEB), not including pensions.

In Praise of the (Other) Great Spring Migration

Jon Forrest Dohlin | May 26, 2016 | New York
While the migratory movements of birds into the New York region are well known and enjoyed by thousands of nature lovers, another migration is underway beneath the surface of our coastal waters, as fish species also move along with the changing of the seasons. One such migratory species is the sand tiger shark.

Why I Turned Down My Dream School and Took a Gap Year

FlockU | May 26, 2016 | College
So don't feel bad about being unsure, and don't be afraid to change your mind. There's strength in recognizing when something doesn't feel right. Don't believe the hype about having to attend the most prestigious college in order to lead a successful life.

Michelangelo Signorile | May 26, 2016 | Queer Voices
There's little sympathy in the world right now for Gawker, which has engaged in questionable and egregious reporting, but Thiel has a lot confused here.

First Nighter: John Doyle's Stripped Down 'Peer Gynt,' Cirque du Soleil's Broadwayed Up 'Paramour'

David Finkle | May 25, 2016 | Arts
Henrik Ibsen is often considered the father of realism, but the citation is, more likely than not, a result of plays written later in a career that began in1850. It was Ghosts (1879) and A Doll's House (1881), that we think of as having conferred the realist title on him.

'Weiner': A Punchline or a Riff on Politicians' Peccadilloes

Regina Weinreich | May 25, 2016 | New York
Really? Anthony Weiner wants unconditional love. This big baby, as he appears for real in Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg's entertaining documentary Weiner, the former congressman wants to parlay his dick on the Internet and be elected for office. That's the size of it. After having been outed for this...

Sean Bradford | May 26, 2016 | New York
Eats Everything likes to throw a good party. And last weekend in Williamsburg he did just that in what turned out to be a progressive gig through Output. Starting on the roof in the rain, his set moved into the Panther Room and ended with a proper dance party on the main floor.

What I Learned During My Post-College Gap Year

Elizabeth C. Fericy | May 24, 2016 | College
The biggest unexpected benefit from my gap year is that it gave me the time to figure out what I did not want my career to be. During college, I had my whole life planed out. My gap year helped me understand that my ultimate fulfilling career will probably not be so black and white.
