Williamsburg: The New Meatpacking District?

According to NBC New York, Williamsburg is regarded as the new Meatpacking District in New York.

Somehow I like living in the dingier South Williamsburg area, away from the yuppification and allure to the bankers. Well, I don't mind bankers so much as the idea that Williamsburg is "the new Meatpacking District." No offense... just like my artsy neighborhood!

See the full NBC article here.

NYC Celebrating Earth Day in Times Square, O-Kay?!

Apparently there is an extended Earth Day celebration in Times Square today, in honor of Earth Day's 40th anniversary. Can you smell the irony in the air?

New York Celebrates Earth Day's 40th Anniversary in Times Square -- NEW YORK, April 22 /PRNewswire/ --

Strange times we're in, indeed. Hmm, I may bike there today to check out the shenanigans. Oh, and did you know April is also bike month for NYC? Now that's a little more Earth Day friendly... See the info on the Transportation Alternatives website!

    Yes, I am BACK! I was on a 6 month or so hiatus, but here I am. Miraculously, Blogger was able to recover my long since deleted blog. Kudos to you, Blogger.

    So the Xx is having a DJ set at Le Poisson Rouge tomorrow, April 22!!

    Tickets are only $10 in advance and $12 the day of the show. Le Posson Rouge is located at 158 Bleeker Street; their motto is "serving art and alcohol." This is sure to be a fun party!
