  1. Inside Superstar Machine, Which Ex-Members Say Is a Cult Preying on New York’s Creative Women

    And I also didn’t bookmark this, but it’s weirdness keeps popping up occasionally.

  2. Don’t Trust Your CMS — Following: How We Live Online

    On CMSs stripping formatting and how troublesome that can be. My first thought is “Why is this CMS so awful that the journalists aren’t writing and editing their own drafts in it?” (via @simonw)

  3. Taylor Single-Pleat Trouser Navy Military Twill by Epaulet | Epaulet New York

    Look quite nice I think. For future reference. Available in other colours. (via Put This On)

  4. The mystery of the white dress shirt — Medium

    Bryan Boyer on closing down their Makeshift Society Brooklyn coworking space. Lovely thoughtful postmortem.

  5. New York: Conspicuous Construction by Martin Filler | The New York Review of Books

    Interesting to read something about all the new, huge, expensive, foreign-investor-owned, residential buildings going up in New York, rather than London for a change.

  6. Why Diners Are More Important Than Ever | Serious Eats

    Partly for the list of NY diners at the end, although the article’s good in itself. Lots of the points defining diners also sounded like British cafes (“caffs”, not cafés). (via Kottke)

  7. The Real Harlem by Darryl Pinckney | The New York Review of Books

    On the changing faces of Harlem over the decades. Gentrification etc, how it’s never a clear, simple phenomenon.

  8. Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York: On Spike Lee & Hyper-Gentrification, the Monster That Ate New York

    A look at the gentrification of New York. Lots of good stuff, and interesting. But it feels a little too biased towards the author’s personal experiences of the recent wave. It may well be true that this is more important and destructive than previous waves but this needs more objective data.

  9. Internet of Dreams - Time and Edges

    StreetView showing the same street both pre- and post- gentrification, giving a hint at its historical importance. Imagine being in the 22nd century and being able to use today’s StreetView. (via New Aesthetic)

  10. My New York List - Journal - Howells.

    No immediate plans to visit NY, but after reading this handy list, I want some. (via @antimega)

  11. Visiting NYC? Where to Eat in New York, The Best Restaurants And More | Serious Eats : New York

    Because one day I’ll visit again, and this looks a good list. (via Kottke)

  12. Henry Beck Rules, not OK? Breaking the Rules of Diagrammatic Map Design (PDF)

    A thoughtful essay by Max Roberts, from 2009, about the rules used in Beck’s diagrammatic London Underground map, and when they’re worth breaking. Well worth a read. (via Blech)

  13. Sohei Nishino - Diorama map London (Detailed info)

    Stunning photographic collage photo-maps of cities. Currently at Michael Hoppen Gallery, SW3 3TD until 2nd April. (via Blech)

  14. Wilderness to brothels to Apple store: the History of Development in one block

    I like this description of one spot of Manhattan and how it changed over the centuries. Although calling the block’s current state “the ultimate culmination of centuries of development” assumes nothing’s going to change ever again. (via @GreatDismal)

  15. An Invisible Empire of Sidewalks and Gutterspace

    The possibilities of fishing in old streams beneath New York, and a man who bought many tiny slivers of land across the city.

  16. Stratigraphies of Infestation

    For both the anecdotes about New York’s rats and the anecdotes about the levels of underground old New York where the rats live.

  17. A unified theory of New York biking | Analysis & Opinion |

    Yes, yes, yes. The same for London too. Cyclist vs car and cyclist vs pedestrian conflicts arise because cyclists act more like pedestrians (ignoring rules) than cars (which by and large obey rules). (via Kottke)

  18. The Jane

    Cheap West Village / Greenwich Village hotel in New York. Small but cute-looking rooms like ship’s cabins.

  19. Walking Off the Big Apple

    “A strolling guide to New York City.” I’m planning a few days there in March, and I like walking around cities. Looks like a good place to start.

  20. Hotel 414 | Official Website

    Cheapish Midtown West New York hotel, recommended by Leslie.

  21. New York Review of Ideas

    Looks like rather a nice new online journal thing, marred only by having its articles split over several pages. Maddening. (via Kottke)

  22. Here & There — a horizonless projection in Manhattan

    I’ve seen these in the flesh and they are very lovely. And a satisfying size. Well done Jack.

  23. Michal Kosakowski » films

    Very, very good silent film about the hours before 9/11 made entirely from clips of movies made before 9/11. Set aside a few minutes and watch. (via Kottke)

  24. Last Call, Bohemia: Entertainment & Culture: vanityfair.com

    Christopher Hitchens on gentrification, New York’s West Village, London’s Soho, etc. (via Kottke, yes I’m catching up on a lot of Kottke)

  25. Matthew Johnston’s slideshow on Flickr - Liberty City vs New York City

    Photos comparing bits of New York with their ‘Grand Theft Auto 4’ counterparts. Amazing and beautiful. Sometimes it’s only the quality of the photos that sets them apart. (via Blackbeltjones)

  26. The Backlot (Watchmen)

    I was trying not to get my hopes up about the movie, but then I saw this and I’m getting very, very excited. Hopefully this won’t all end in tears.

  27. Business lessons from the donut and coffee guy (kottke.org)

    A post from 2003 about a guy on a stand who lets customers make their own change.

  28. A 15,000 year tour of Manhattan

    Great illustrations of what New York might look like at various points after human life disappears. (via Boing Boing)

  29. The Profit Calculator — New York Magazine

    Examples of where different companies’ profits come from. (via Kottke)

  30. Goodbye to All That by Joan Didion

    I read this essay in ‘Slouching Towards Bethlehem’ and loved it (and others). About moving to New York, but some of it reminded me of when I moved to London and how my relationship to the place has changed.

  31. Trevorlittle.com - nyc photos » Power Washing 188 Suffolk St.

    Wow. Shows how dirty some New York buildings have become over the years. The difference is incredible. (via Kottke)

  32. Indie-Film Star ‘Suicide’ Stunner By Philip Messing, Mark Bulliet and Dan Mangan - New York Post Online Edition: Seven

    Hell. Adrienne Shelly, who starred in Hal Hartley’s ‘The Unbelievable Truth’ and ‘Trust’ (two of my favourite films) has “apparently” committed suicide. I was always surprised she wasn’t in more films.
