Washington Square Park
PLAY
April 21, 2016
Nestled in the heart of Greenwich Village ('the Village,' to New Yorkers), and marking the southern end of Fifth Avenue is Washington Square Park.  With its recognizable arch and and large central fountain, the park has a storied history, and has evolved since its first use a public burial ground to a vibrant community space ...

Four & Twenty Blackbirds
BROOKLYN
April 13, 2016
The promise of pie can brighten even a dreary afternoon, and that's what brought us in out of the rain and cold yesterday. Four & Twenty Blackbirds, a pie and coffee shop located in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, makes old-fashioned pies, some in delightfully modern flavor combinations. With painted pressed tin walls and ceiling and comfortably-worn ...

East River Ferry
April 13, 2016
Before moving to Brooklyn we lived in Midtown Manhattan, far enough from both the Hudson and East Rivers flanking the sides of the island that sometimes long stretches of time passed without a glimpse of the water. The opposite is true of our life now in Brooklyn, where we can see the East River from ...

Hazel Village
April 13, 2016
Is there anything sweeter than a little stuffed animal wearing tiny clothes? A staple in the packages I've sent friends to help welcome their new babies for some time now, the animal dolls from Brooklyn-based Hazel Village are beyond charming. Lovingly made from organic cotton, they can be hand-embroidered with a name or initials and - ...

OddFellows Ice Cream Co.
April 12, 2016
I would argue that while it's important to have a favorite ice cream place, it's perhaps even more important to have a favorite ice cream place in as many neighborhoods as possible. Weekend socializing, errands, and exploring often take us out of our immediate corner of the city, and I like feeling secure in my knowledge of where we might ...

Russ & Daughters Cafe
April 11, 2016
Both my children have an endless appetite for smoked salmon.  Personally, I hadn't tasted smoked salmon until I was a teenager, but living on the Upper West Side, these little girls are fortunate to have sampled some of the best.  While on the Lower East Side to visit the Tenement Museum, we tried Russ & Daughters Cafe, ...

Tenement Museum
April 10, 2016
Our family visited the Tenement Museum (103 Orchard Street) last weekend. Situated on the Lower East Side, the tenement building was home to thousands of working class immigrants between 1869 and 1935.  Through extensive research, 6 family apartments have been restored and now serve as a time capsule of the living conditions of its former inhabitants. ...

Lower East Side food: Doughnut Plant
April 6, 2016
A few doors down Grand Street from Kossar's Bialys is Doughnut Plant, home of some of my favorite doughnuts in the city. The perfect sweet ending to a progressive breakfast (is there is such a thing? There should be!), you'll be tempted to sample every last flavor. Now a mini doughnut empire with four New ...

Brooklyn Bridge Park
April 5, 2016
Much attention has been focused in recent years on developing New York City waterfront parkland for use by the public. In Manhattan, the Hudson River Greenway runs the entire length of the city's west side stringing together a series of parks and redeveloped piers. On the east side of the island, the East River and ...

Lower East Side food: Kossar's Bialys
April 4, 2016
Around the corner on Grand Street from The Pickle Guys is Kossar's, one of the last bialy stores left in New York. For those unfamiliar with the bialy, think of a cross between an english muffin and a bagel, with an indented center traditionally filled with onions. Bialys are baked not boiled, and have floury exteriors and ...
