She's Still She's Still Angie From the Bronx!

hood: The Bronx :]

age: Ugh, I'm 20.

food place? It depends what I'm eating. The best place for Italian is Frankie & Johnnie's in the Bronx, or Carmine's in Manhattan. Hispanic food: Cafe Espanol on Bleeker has the best rice and seafood everrr! oOo and I live for Wonton Garden on Mott, I think. [Ok, I'll admit it: China town confuses me beyond all reason. I just know that it's on the block with the Chase and the bubble tea shop ... lol.]

how would you describe yourself as a new yorker? I would describe myself as a bad New Yorker. First, I'm clumsy, so I can't walk in the 5 in. heels that all of the fashionable chicks wear. Secondly, I have no sense of direction what so ever. I constantly get lost, especially when I'm in the city. According to my brother that's against the New Yorker code lol. The list could go on and on, but the biggest reason as to why I'm a horrible New Yorker: I actually LIKE taking to tourists. Yes, "FOR SHAME!" I know, it's weird. Bloomberg is planning to tar and feather me as we speak.

any nightlife joints you frequent? I'm a bar girl, which /is/ different from an alcoholic. I tend to go to dive bars though. What can I say? The drinks are cheap and the people are fun. If I'm really going to be drinking hardcore, I try to stay around the Bronx or Pleasantville[If I'm getting a ride.] I love Tinkers, Howl's, Mugz's and MacArthurs. Hmm, maybe that's another reason why I'm a bad NY-er, I actually prefer the Bronx to Manhattan.

what is your favorite thing about nyc? I love the people. People watching is a major hobby of mine. I'm not a crazy stalker, it's just cool to see people's clothing and things of that nature. You have so many people in NY that you can see all kinds of different street style. It's pretty cool.

favorite shop? My favorite shop is either Macys or Nordstrom. For some reason, everytime I go in those stores I feel like a kid in a candy shop. Everything's so prim and pretty!

any helpful tips or tricks for navigating the many facets of the city? HAHAHA! Umm, I always try to stay with people that /do/ know the city. If I have to go into the city alone, I always try to hopstop it a bunch of times and make sure I remember where I'm going. Pretty lame "tip," but like I said, "I constantly get lost."

what is a piece of advice you would give someone going to the city? Pretty, pretty please if you are going on the train, hold onto the rail when the train is moving. That's my number one pet peeve. I HATE when people try to sue me as a buffer between them and the floor. If they just held on to the damn pole they wouldn't be flying all over the place!

what is one thing anyone should do in the city? Come to the other boroughs! NYC is so much more than just Manhattan. Try to go to other places like Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx. But don't go to Staten Island or Long Island, they're really lame lol.

Domino Magazine, Plese Explain

Jessi Randall of Loeffler Randall's Apartment ^

Domino was pretty comprehensive for young decorators. With colorful covers and gorgeous places they captured my attention and now its all gone...

In an e-mail interview, Grace Bonney, editor of the popular Web site, called Domino “one of the few magazines that spoke to young women who loved their homes as much as their closets or makeup.”

Please tell me why magazines and newspapers are suffering in this economic time. The one thing i faithfully spend my money on is being taken away from me. I am severly pissed, sad, and disheartened by the folding of Domino Magazine. It makes me wonder...Who's next? Where is my money too? What about my 9 months paid up? They need to spread some information already! I found these pics of the staff of Domino Magazine having a farewell party^ WTF. Who does that. They look so jolly too. Im not as pleased as they seem to be...

Happy Valentines. Want a LIttle Tid BIT?

On this day in History Al Capone, Mobster for the Chicago syndicate, sent a message to Bugs Moran. This was the message ^ On February 14, 1929 Al Capone set in place the bloodiest, and most well known mob hit in history.
Why you ask? In early 1929, Moran sided with Joe Aiello in another attack against Capone. He and Aiello reportedly gunned down Pasquillano Lolordo, one of Capone’s men, and Capone vowed that he would have him wiped out on February 14. He was living on his estate outside of Miami at the time and put in a call to Chicago. Capone had a very special “valentine” that we wanted delivered to Moran.

Team Wayfarer NYC Interview

age- 17 at the end of this month

area/hood- east & downtown

What do you love most about the city? I love that there's always something new, exciting or interesting going on. Also, because I'm such a huge music fan, it's great that my favorite bands will all come here to play a gig eventually.

What is the one place that everyone should go to at least once? Hmm, that's tough. My favorite touristy spot is probably 5th ave in the 50s. That's the cliche "5th Ave" area. And the east south corner ... of the park is nice too. Other than that...I can't help but say St. Marks place in the East Village. It's one of the original punk spots of the city that's been transformed into a tragically hip parallel of Canal Street. (basically, they sell the best fake sunglasses and trendy stuff like that) By the way, never buy anything on Canal.

How would you describe the city? A New Yorker? Frank wasn't kidding when he said it never sleeps. Seems to me that tourists think New Yorkers are rude. Not rude, pick up the pace! haha. We're usually polite. If you want to take a picture of someone in front of the Bloomingdales, it's fine, people will wait or walk around.

Is there a store for record or music that you would reccomend? I went to a Born Ruffians gig in Brooklyn once- at a record store called Sound Fix (or Soundfix maybe) that had a great selection of stuff in the front and a bar/mini stage in the back. It was way cool. In Manhattan, there's always some free promos at the Cake Shop right under Houston St. The Virgin Megastore (on 14th...not Times Square!) has every CD. You're not the same after going in there. So much stuff. Members of The Strokes usually are seen in there too, also Agyness, since they all live in the East Village.

Fave Food joint? Always seem to end up at Haru on Park in the 20s. Small, good, kinda expensive sushi chain. That, and Pinkberry. And soup/scones at Whole Foods, Union Square.

Museum? MoMA all the way. I have a membership card and love going. Modern art, Andy Warhol, the photo floor, architecture's amazing every time.

Store? I'll always love Urban Outfitters and Forever 21, Screaming Mimi's for vintage- Lafayette at 4th.

How would you describe yourself as a ny'er? No idea!

How would you describe street style in NYC? It depends where you are. Very polished and expensive uptown, cutting edgier downtown...but under it all, there's a certain amount of practicality since mostly everyone walks everywhere and winter is annoying cold sometimes.

Where can someone see a celeb? All over! I saw Zac Efron in Columbus Circle once, my mom saw Julian Casablancas from The Strokes on 10th and B'way once. (I will always hate her for it too until I meet him haha) Saw Andy Samberg in the west village outside of Magnolia Bakery and then Scarlett Johansen. Caroline Kennedy in list really goes on. Mostly soho I think...west Bleecker. Hard to say.

Any advice about the city? If you're visiting, take just a day or two seeing the touristy spots. Spend your time wandering around soho and the villages with a map. I think the little places you'll find are more meaningful and memorable. Please don't wear a fanny pack.

parkereloise: new yorker interview

Parker Eloise Does NYC Interview

age: sixteen.

area: long island haha i'm a fraud.

travel: car or train. i dont really mind.

what is it about the city you love most: haha this is going to sound lame but magazines.

where is the best place for international/national magazines: oh well for a one stop trip, any universal news. i like the one on 23rd. i also go to a little place around 23rd and 7th i've nicknamed "tasti-d-light" because it shares a space with a tasti-d-light icecream store. but that place is kinda delayed in comparison to universal. there is apparently this place called "magazine cafe nyc" which is amazing but when i went to the address it wasn't there. and if i just have time to pick up a few issues the hudson news in the train station.
what is one thing you do every trip to the city: besides buy magazines? hmm eat pizza! and ride the subway. haha i think its fun, i'm lame...i'll live
what describes a new yorker: haha people from the city are really cool, i think i can tell who they are by how they walk down the street and dont look at anyone and aren't dressed up because it's not like a big deal to them.. and they walk fast. i like to walk slow, haah i am easily distracted. and i like to smile at people, especially good looking boys. new yorkers don't really do that i don't think.
favorite eatery: serendipity. haha i always go there! or balthazar my dad used to take me there for breakfast like all the time. and ellen's stardust diner. it's like completley a totally lame tourist thing but they sing and i'm obsessed with it
hang out spot: haha i dont have one really now but me and my friend used to go to this weird restaraunt every weekend practically or madison square park i guess you could call that our hangout.
what piece of advice would you give to a visitor of the city: hmm. don't be afraid to act like a tourist, take a bunch of pictures, be embarrasing. you're never going to see any of these people again who cares if they mock you!
