    Default New York City

    Hi. I'm in New York for a couple weeks. What's good to do? ThinnerAir, Tylerdurder, I'm looking at you.

    Although it's been a while since I have lived here, I have covered all the obvious touristy stuff already and don't need to be doing those sorts of things. But I feel like the music scene especially has changed a lot with so many clubs closing down or moving to Brooklyn, so I'm feeling a little disoriented.

    KATZ DELI
    a few blocks from katz there is a brazilian place, i think its on ave A right before 2nd str. awesome fucking food and the waitress is hot as hell. and on the weekends a samba band comes in and plays. if you go to the karova bar dont put any money in the juke box. the guy plays his ipod. it was funny watching people feed that damn thing.

    Ok.

    Also I am staying at a friend's apartment in Greenpoint. It is a weird mix of Polish families and lurking hipsters.

    Also I just googled Greenpoint and apparently Mae West and Pat Benatar are from Greenpoint. That's some good water.

    Greenpoint is heavily polluted and smells awful if you catch the right wind.
    Check out PS1 if youre here on a saturday afternoon. Its in Long Island City, which is just over the Pulaski Bridge from Greenpoint....its even walkable!
    I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.

    If you want some good coffee, I hear Cafe Grumpy is f-ing delicious.
    Tuesday nights are Movies at the Pool at McCarren Pool. They're free and quite entertaining. a million gallon pool, emptied out for kids to hang out, get housed and watch flicks.

    If you like felafel, go to Mamoun's on MacDougal St near Bleecker.

    Camera Obscura is next friday @ Seaport and Battles the Friday after that if you're into that sort of thing.

    I like the Cooper-Hewitt Museum of Design. They have a good exhibit on design in developing countries.

    Junior's Cheesecake in Brooklyn=the shit!
    Best Falaffel in New York is on 51st Street between 9th and 10th ave.
    He s only open during lunch and not weekends...and hes a bastard.
    Go get cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery (made famous from that SNL skit)
    There is a museum on the Lower East Side called the Tenement museum, which talks about the origins of NYC. I hear its awesome.
    Museum of Sex is overrated but still cool...i guess.
    I love Barcade in Williamsburg. Great pints and cheap video games!

    I <3 PS1. Are they still doing that summer party thing on Saturdays? I want to go to that. I hope they have a courtyard installation with a wading pool this year.

    Haha. Um, I'm posting from Cafe Grumpy. Hi. Now you can come stalk me? They have pretty latte art.

    I am gonna check out this movie night thing. It sounds good.

    These are excellent suggestions. Thank you. I'm a big fan of Mamoun's from when I used to live in New Haven (they have a location there as well). And I almost did an internship once at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum!

    I think I'm gonna miss Battles which is a bummer because they were really excellent at Pitchfork. But Camera Obscura I like too, so that sounds very promising.

    Actually, when I went to Barcade my friend called me on my cellphone and I couldn't hear anything in the bar so I had to go outside, and as I was stood outside this big jeep or hummer drove past and then squealed to a halt and someone was thrown out / jumped out, and there was a bunch of screaming and then the car drove away again, and then the person ran away. It was all very strange. Watch out for those drive-bys, Courney.

    You CANNOT make friends with the rock stars. That's what's important. If you're a rock journalist - first, you will never get paid much. But you will get free records from the record company. And they'll buy you drinks, you'll meet girls, they'll try to fly you places for free, offer you drugs... I know. It sounds great. But they are not your friends. These are people who want you to write sanctimonious stories about the genius of the rock stars, and they will ruin rock and roll and strangle everything we love about it.

    Also don't do drugs. And leave an ounce of blood on stage every night.

    But rock and roll is already dead. We're just here for the last gasp, the final grope.

    51st St is kind of near MoMA, right? Maybe I can make that a joint outing.

    And those cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery are so so good. I used to get one after each time I went for a wax at Eve across the street. I was hoping for a sort of pavlovian response whereby waxing would become pleasurable because it would be associated with the sugar high to follow. The experiment didn't work out so well. But the cupcakes are good.

    Haha. I don't know; I try to avoid proximity to Hummers at all costs. Maybe I should stay away from this Barcade place.

    alot of it really depends on what parts of the city you want to be around.
    i mean, there are a lot of things to do if you are looking to spend a lot of time in manhattan, or a lot of stuff if you are looking to stay in brooklyn. there are also a bunch of things to do in Long Island City/Astoria/Queens (water taxi beach, ps1, etc)
    I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.

    Kaki King is playing at Wednesday the 15th at Spiegletent as part of Bard SummerScape 2007. The whole thing involves lots of opera and plays and Elgar and classic movies and it's very confusing.

    Some sort of website. And another one. But neither of these seem to say anything about Kaki King. PollStar wouldn't lie, would they?
