Not sure why it’s so warm and muggy here in New York City, but maybe we’ll get some properly crisp weather eventually. Until then, let’s just admire the autumnal style of these three cool kids.
Workers replacing a water main near Washington Square Park recently discovered pair of buried brick roofs. Turns out, they’d stumbled onto a pair of crypts, likely connected to a nearby church and dating to the late 18th or early 19th century.
On Thursday, New York’s Taxi and Limousine Commission voted to give the people what they want, which is silence during cab rides: a year-long pilot program will phase out Taxi TVs in 1,000 cabs.
We all know Terry Richardson is a creep, but how often does he get called that to his face? Hopefully plenty, but in case he doesn’t, comedian Jeff Leach did God’s work when he saw Richardson on the street and asked him how it feels to be “an absolute creep.”
The Internet: Now brought to you by a pile of rancid garbage. Literally.

Money magnet Sarah Jessica Parker keeps literally finding money in the streets of New York City, which, in my opinion, is better than finding those dumbass playing cards Berger used to collect, am I right?
Not everyone is down for PDA, which is understandable, but in the case of NYC cab driver Mohammad Dahbi, his aversion to public makeouts came with a $10,000 price. Why?

To those unfortunate enough to live or stroll near NYC's Pranna on a weekend afternoon, the restaurant/club's unlimited drinks brunch deal only causes headaches. Stumbling out of the establishment are patrons intoxicated to the point of unruliness, barfing, daytime dick unsheathing, and other such booze-related…
It's true that children can be very wise. Sometimes they'll just give you nuggets of wisdom when you least expect it. For instance, the other day a small girl told me that no one would ever marry me because I'm too loud. She might be right, but I didn't press. A substitute teacher in New York, however, made the…
