For a little over a year now, I have done something most people consider impossible: I keep a car in New York City. While it is a place that indisputably hates cars, owning a car here is not actually impossible. Here are a few things to do to make it easier.
Among New York City’s many famous landmarks, the Brooklyn Bridge remains a tourist favorite for its beauty and walkability. Also it’s super dangerous because you could get nailed by a speeding bicyclist at any given moment. Fun!
With public transportation so far-reaching in Manhattan on top of the arduous task of actually keeping a car in the city, gas stations aren’t places that most New Yorkers visit regularly. But for the city’s taxis and the few who do own cars, gas stations like the Mobil Station on Eighth Avenue and 13th Street in…
A friend and I recently booked a hotel room in Washington, D.C., for one night. The room came to around $190 total, or a reasonable-for-D.C. $95 per person. And the parking? $48 plus tax.
A lot of people think silver is a boring color on most cars but they're wrong–they probably just haven't seen a silver car at night in Manhattan. There's something about the way a silver car absorbs the light of the city like nothing else can.
In what is probably a nightmare scenario for a lot of New York commuters, about 50 people were injured this morning when a ferry crashed into a dock in Lower Manhattan, according to news reports.
Answering the question of ‘will it hurricane?' these are some of the coolest cars I found in blacked-out Lower Manhattan. Up top is a '70s Lincoln Continental. Below are the GranTurismo MC Stradales of Maserati of Manhattan and a new Dodge Challenger across the street. Then there's the proud blackout Tesla. At the…
I have no idea what these two creations were doing on Franklin Street in SoPo. It's hard to find words how strange it was to see these out of the corner of my eye, glowing within the darkness.
"I DROVE A SEMI HERE –" I'm talking to a tough guy with a biker mustache working with a group of trucks pumping water out of buildings near the South Street Seaport, deep in the Lower Manhattan blackout. There's a din from the generators running around us, but he's just talking in that loud way that a lot of my…
New York's Fashion Week is a time when skinny people parade around in clothes that nobody really understands and look at even skinnier people in items that could existentially be considered clothing.
The intersection of Manhattan's Essex and Delancey streets has seen more than 130 injuries and three fatalities since 2006. This year, the NYC DOT banned all left turns to calm things down, but even the cops are breaking the rule.
CNBC recently compiled a list of the most expensive apartments in New York City and look whose car is parked outside of One57 and its $115,000,000 penthouse. Yes, it's the $8 million one-of-one Maybach Exelero perhaps owned by rapper/record exec Birdman.
Cars in New York City that aren't lucky enough to spend their days in a $600 per month garage see a lot happen on these mean streets.
Two workers were injured this morning as a car fell down a parking garage elevator shaft on the Upper East Side. It took an hour to rescue the driver, and we still don't know how the accident happened.
Say hallelujah, you entrepreneurial New Yorkers buying unlimited-ride MetroCards and selling subway-entry swipes to tourists. Your "occupation" is no longer considered a felony, according to New York law thanks to New York's Court of Appeals.
Today's 5.9 magnitude earthquake was felt throughout the Mid-Atlantic, but its epicenter—a small town in Virginia—took the brunt of its wrath. What if it had started in NYC instead? We may find out sooner than you think.
If I were an annoying New York doorman or the guy at the bodega who tries to make lames jokes all the time, I'd ask, "Is it hot enough out there for you?" But I won't do that. I'll just show you pictures of the street melting into a giant sink hole.
Getting caught in traffic sucks for everyone. So New York City Mayor Bloomberg and his crack team of engineers are working on a way to both monitor traffic and get you moving, involving more cameras and a lot of microwaves.
UPDATE! When illicit speed racer Alex Roy circled the Island of Manhattan in 2001 he set the known record for fastest time at 27 minutes while reaching speeds of 144 mph over the 24.48 mile distance. For legal reasons, he never released the tape. A new driver's now done it in 26:03. Here's the video.
