Following Palm Sunday services at St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery, parishioners planted more than 600 small crosses in the church’s East Yard, along Second Ave. between 10th and 11th Sts., then draped them in T-shirts. Each shirt bears the name or names of people killed by gun violence.

The word “sheeple” has taken on a pejorative meaning in some parts. But at Sunday’s Lunar New Year Parade in Chinatown, the sheep were out and proud.

The “Nostalgia Train” operated on the M line between Queens Plaza and Second Ave. on Sundays only, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 28, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Kicking things off, swing dancers in period costume performed […]

Signs of the turbulent times

Signs of the turbulent times

After the Eric Garner verdict and protests and the subsequent killing of two police officers, signs show that it will take a while for the wounds to heal. At left, graffiti on the Lower East Side commemorates Garner and others who were killed by police, including Michael Brown, as well as Oscar Grant, who was […]

Taylor Swift, the heart of it all, and a fish

Taylor Swift, the heart of it all, and a fish

Seen around Downtown in Tribeca this past week were a couple of girls singing Taylor Swift’s “Welcome to New York” while jumping up and down with joy outside the transplanted country/pop crooner’s new loft.
