When faced with a day like today, you might suddenly feel obliged to tick off the major events of the past year, reflect on what you’ve learned, and be grateful that you’ve managed to make it through (so far– we’ve still got several hours left to go). But if you’re anything like us, you’ll need a little help in navigating the haze standing between you and crystal clear recollection. Hence, a great way to say goodbye to 2015: our end times listicle in which we relive our 20 most popular posts of this past year.
If you’re a regular reader of Bedford + Bowery, then you know The Regulars. Thanks to Joshua D. Fischer’s column, you know where Andrew W.K. likes to bring his own Jaeger, where Jad Abumrad of “Radiolab” gets his Black Sabbath fix, and where Pat Kiernan goes to hang with “real people” in Williamsburg. And if you’re a regular at one of our local bookstores, we’ve got good news: the series — which has also featured Anna Sale, Kevin Corrigan, Jessica Pimentel and, well, some regular folk as well — is now becoming a book.
Today we invite you to download a beefed-up version of the Bedford + Bowery mobile app we launched earlier in the summer.
Aside from looking purdier, the new app allows you to navigate more easily from story to story, watch videos, and read news as it breaks on our site. All without ungluing your smartphone or your tablet from your palm.
That’s all thanks to downtown-based developers DWNLD, who today launched their own app allowing publishers to easily create similar mobile platforms. Best part: you can customize your app with themes that have names like Lafayette and Roebling. (We’re not sure what our theme is, but let’s hope it isn’t some icky Upper East Side theme, because sorry dudes the Upper East Side is not cooler than Brooklyn now).
Get the B+B app by searching for Bedford + Bowery in the app store or by clicking here.
Last week, we celebrated our first anniversary by unveiling a new events calendar and promised still more exciting news. Well, here it is! Get the new B+B app — designed by the downtowners over at DWNLD — to read and share all of Bedford + Bowery’s latest coverage, on the go. For starters, we’ve loaded the app with the 20 most popular stories of our first year. Check em out while you can, because starting Monday, they’ll be replaced by all of our latest content as it goes live. Download the B+B app for free on iTunes or by searching for “Bedford + Bowery” in your phone’s app store.
Okay, no, we’re not going to give you any of the Chanel purses on display at the Pilgrim store. Who do you think we are, Swagg Man? What me meant is that if you like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and sign up for our daily newsletter, you’ll be the first to know next time we see something as blingtastic as this display window — or, say, this golden loo. So, go ahead! We dabble in Tumblr and Instagram, too.
Don’t take our word that you should be keeping up with B+B: The L Magazine just named us Best New Local Blog in their Best of Brooklyn Issue. Aww thanks, guys! And thank you all for following, friending, favoriting, and fondling!
