Like any relationship fraught with “issues,” riders of the G train know acute highs (like catching the train just as it arrives at the dank Broadway station at 3am) and despairing lows (like, ugh, having to ride the shuttle bus from Greenpoint to Court Square half the summer). Good or bad, the G knows how to keep things interesting!
The MTA’s full review of the G line, released yesterday and embedded below, made us see our relationship with the G in a whole new light, and like a good couples counselor it finally helped us get some questions answered. Starting with… More →
The insanely popular Wafels & Dinges truck opened its first brick-and-mortar location this morning at 2nd Street and Avenue B, and owner Thomas DeGeest hopes it’ll function primarily as a neighborhood coffee shop. More →
Saturday, The Cabin Sisters played a set at the Grand Victory in Williamsburg. The folk duo has two claims to fame: one is that Zosia Mamet of “Girls” and “Mad Men” is a Cabin Sister. (The other sister is Clara Mamet, an actress on ABC’s “The Neighbors.”) More →
Yesterday, thousands of New Yorkers poured into Union Square to protest the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
We spoke to some of those who showed up in the afternoon, and you can find out what brought them there by clicking through the slideshow above. For many, the chants of “No justice, no peace!” and “The system is guilty, it freed George Zimmerman!” continued into the night and then into the wee hours during a march from the East Village to the Bronx.

Last week, while Tim “Eater X” Janus took home a bronze at the Nathan’s hot-dog eating contest, his East Village roommate and fellow competitive eater Crazy Legs Conti was conspicuously absent from the eater’s table. More →
The 56-hour comedy extravaganza known as the Del Close Marathon took place over the weekend. For the improv nerds amongst us, this was the chance to see some of the country’s most talented improv comedians performing at the height of their craft. For the more casual viewer, it was a chance to stalk celebrities, not to mention a whole lot of hey-you-look-familiar faces, running the gamut from Apatow-film-cameo to “that guy from The Office.” Here’s what we took away from it all. Amy Poehler is busy as hell: More →
AJ Nichols, the bike mechanic who was repairing and selling bicycles out of a basement in Bushwick, is enjoying a new life above ground. The 26-year-old North Carolinian relocated his subterranean studio to a proper storefront and, after decorating it with woodworking scraps from an artist’s dumpster, grand-opened Harvest Cyclery at 606 Bushwick Avenue earlier this month.

The Renegade Craft Fair set up camp in Williamsburg’s East River State Park this weekend, alongside regulars Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea. We withstood the sweltering heat to show you a few of our favorite things, amass a collection of business cards, and to indulge in some ice cream from the Coolhaus truck (which, unfortunately, could not withstand the heat). We may have even come away with a purchase or two – because, indeed, one can always use another bloody tote.
If you missed out on the fair, don’t worry: all of the vendors also sell their wares online, and many of them are based locally in Brooklyn. You’ll find links to their online shops with each image, and the full list of Renegade Craft vendors can be found here.
