If you felt the lines at La Colombe were long before, well this Saturday expect them to be much longer.
We live amongst bacteria. In fact, bacteria make up more biological mass than all the plants and animals on earth, and exist essentially everywhere on this planet regardless of how extreme the conditions may seem to us. In fact, it has been calculated that bacteria cells outnumber human cells in and on the human body by a factor of 10 to 1… we are a minority in our own selves.
Because of their prevalence and importance, scientists have undertaken a huge project of mapping the bacteria at every subway station in NYC. Our subway system is akin to a specialized test-tube that each commuter plays a factor in, creating the movement and growth of certain types of bacteria. To find out about the bacteria at your subway station, go here. To learn more about this fascinating project and how it could improve public health and help minimize the impact of possible biological terrorism, go here. And remember, there are more of them then there are of us… so best to know a bit about them.
Here it comes again, bringing us great deals on great food… NYC Restaurant Week is about to begin, and it is starting to take reservations today. Go take a look at the options and go taste something beautiful!
“Still… to this day… only the curious come down here.”
The beloved Williamsburg eatery is opening a new location at 43 Canal Street (between Ludlow and Orchard) this coming Monday. There will be chicken, there will be pies, there will be deliciousness. If you haven’t tried their Chicken Biscuit, which comes slathered in hot sauce and honey butter… then you have not yet truly lived. Make sure you check it out!
Awkwardly named, but brilliantly designed, the SeatyLock is a revolutionary design that solves two common bicycle problems.
1. Bicycle locks are always awkward in shape and weight.
2. Bicycle seats often get stolen.
The SeatyLock creates a functional hybrid solution by creating a comfortable bicycle seat that expands into a durable lock. Two problems, one elegant solution.
After years of delays the Fulton Center Station, the major downtown transit hub that links numerous trains together as they pass from Manhattan to Brooklyn, is set to finally unveil the final components of its massive restoration project.
Pathways have been realigned, commercial space has been integrated, efficiency has hopefully been increased, and to top it all off there is now a giant glittering oculus that opens the station up to the air above. Will we New Yorkers embrace an opening to the sky, or will we miss the fetid embrace of the previous claustrophobic tunnels? Let’s find out on Monday at 5pm!
