A Night Out with a Difference

Here are a few bars with something unique to offer along with a pint or a lovely glass of wine.

Frying Pan: This unusual  bar & grill was built in 1929 as a floating lightship to guard a place called Frying Pan Shoals 30 miles off the coast of Cape Fear, North Carolina. At some point in the boats history she was abandoned for ten years, and then sank. After three years submerged, she was salvaged and then bought by today’s owners. In 1989 the boat, with a new engine and completely refurbished, sailed to New York City. Today Frying Pan is docked at Pier 66a in the Hudson River Park at West 26th Avenue. The owners chose to restore the outside of the boat to her original look, but the inside maintains a barnacle covered, sunken ship motif.

Floyd, NY: Owners Pam and Jim Carden took a liquor store and recreated a rural tavern the likes of which can be found in Pam’s hometown of Floyd, Iowa. To create such an atmosphere the Cardens added a jukebox with great Hank Williams tunes and songs from the Bad Liver. The premises sport tin ceilings, a rescued 1870s era bar, and even polite bartenders. Even more impressive is the indoor bocce game, sand and all.

Gallow Green: Talk about street theater- this luscious green rooftop bar features actors who never leave character, chatting up the patrons in a decidedly historical manner. Located on top of the McKittrick Hotel which houses the immersive theater extravaganza “Sleep No More,” a night out at this bar is sure to create lasting memories, and make you smile.

Drifting in Daylight: Explore the Art of Central Park

Huddlestone Arch

Huddlestone Arch

From May 15 until June 20, 2015, on Friday’s and Saturdays at 12pm, visitors to Central Park can explore the less well-known north end of the park. The non-profit public arts organization known as Creative Time, along with the Central Park Conservancy is sponsoring a tour which will follow a winding pathway to some of Central Park’s more wonderful features.

Participants will visit the Harlem Meer, Great Hill, and the Conservatory Garden. Along the meandering path a wonderful selection of innovative art works will come into view, created specifically for Central Park and its unique landscape.

The tour is free, and is the key event of the Central Park Conservancy’s 35th Anniversary celebration.

Other features of the north end of the park include Huddlestone Arch, the Harlem Meer and the Loch. Many consider the Huddlestone Arch the most surprising of the park’s many arches. Designed in 1866 by Calvery Vaux, it is built without the use of mortar or any other binding material. Only gravity and pressure are holding this arch together.

The Harlem Meer, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Vaux is a man-made lake which memorializes what was the separate village of Harlem.  Fishing in permitted in the lake and visitors can expect to see turtles, waterfowl as well as fish in the thriving habitat created by the Meer, which means ‘lake’ in Dutch.

The Loch, which is the Scottish word for ‘lake,’ winds through the Ravine. It is fed by a natural watercourse and flows under Glen Span and Huddlestone arches and then connects to the Meer. The stream was also designed by Olmsted and Vaux, and has several dams creating three beautiful waterfalls.
If you haven’t been to Central Park recently, or even if you have, it’s always an invigorating experience to explore the many beautiful features of this incredible New York wonder.

Looking for something a bit different for your date-night? How about trying a little taste of a bygone era when Vaudeville and Burlesque were all the rage?

Founded in 1999 by performer and producer James Habacker, the slipper room is a place where avant-garde performance artists could experiment without fear of being too outrageous, lewd, messy or even illegal. James’ idea was to give performers a space to push themselves as they try out their most fantastic ideas.

It did not take long for the Slipper Room to emerge from relative obscurity to becoming a major player in Manhattan’s downtown theater world and nightlife. Now the show has a reputation as the place to see the most cutting edge performance art; what has become known as New York Burlesque and Variety.

Tickets can be purchased on-line from the Slipper Room’s own website. Shows can be seen 7 days per week, and Variety shows Wednesday through Saturday at 10pm and beyond. The Slipper Room is located at 167 Orchard Street between Rivington and Stanton. The entrance is on Stanton Street.

Big Apple Helicopter Tours to see NYC from a new perspective

Big Apple Helicopter Tours to see NYC from a new perspective

Just imagine seeing all of New York in just 15 minutes! All you need to do is fly above the traffic and noise and buildings to see New York like you never have before. Of course for flying you will need a helicopter, which is a thrill in and of itself.

Your amazing helicopter tour begins at the Downtown Heliport, located near Battery Park and Wall Street. Climb aboard and rise above the crowds and see from on high the World Financial Center, the Empire State Building, the famed art-deco Chrysler Building, the Woolworth Building and the Met Life tower. Then turn away from the island and head to Ellis Island, get a close up look at the Statue of Liberty, and then turn right, and follow the great Hudson River up to the George Washington Bridge near the northern end of Manhattan.

For more information on how you can visit New York via helicopter, contact Viator.

The Holocenter, or otherwise known as the Center for the Holographic Arts, is New York’s showcase for this unique and fascinating art form. Established by respected holographic artists Ana Maria Nicholson and Dan Schweitzer in 1998, the mission of the Holocenter is to “bring virtual understandings into contemporary dialogues around media participation, technology and visual-spatial information.”

The Center has an office at Flux Factory in Long Island, and a public gallery on Governors Island at the Holocenter. The staff of the Holocenter work together with artists, helping them to develop concepts and providing several holography studios. The Pulse Laser Studio is located at Ohio State University, and the New York Holgraphic Laboratories is in Manhattan.

Visitors can attend artist talks, workshops, or see the center’s publications to learn more about holography. The center is now located in a late 19th century house on Governor’s Island with limited hours, so check before you visit.

It is Your Civic Duty to: Visit City Hall

Maybe you can’t fight city hall, but you sure can visit. Located across the street from the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge in City Hall Park, the building has been the seat of the city’s government since 1812. The original building was a marble hall with a cupola, except for the northern side, which was done in brownstone to save money on the construction.

City Hall in 1919.

City Hall in 1919.

In 1917 the domed tower was rebuilt after two fires severely damaged it.  Almost 40 years later, from 1954-1956 the original marble and brownstone facades were replaced with a granite base covered with limestone.  The quality of the restoration inspired critic Ada Louise Huxtable to exclaim that City Hall was now a “symbol of taste, excellence and quality not always matched by the policies inside.”

A tour, which is free, will take you into the space under the soaring rotund which is held up by 10 Corinthian columns. There is a reception space where the mayor visits with important guests, which has 12 paintings of the founding fathers by John Trumbull. With a guided tour offered by the Art Commission of the City of New York, which is also free, you can visit the grand interior of the building. Call first for reservations.

The 9/11 Memorial: Honor Their Memory with Acts of Compassion

Twin Towers Memorial

9/11 Memorial Photo by Svein-Magne Tunli

The sights and sounds of September 11, 2001 will be forever etched in the hearts and minds of all those old enough to have understood the events of that dreadful and fateful day. On that day 2,983 people lost their lives when terrorists with horrifyingly murderous intent smashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York; the Pentagon in Washington DC; and a thwarted third attack which took the lives of all aboard Flight 93.

In honor of their memory and the loved ones they left behind, a memorial has been established on the site where the Twin Towers once stood. In their place are twin memorial pools with the names of the murdered are stencil-cut into the bronze panels surrounding the reflecting pools. Each pool covers almost an acre in area and are the biggest manmade waterfalls in all of North America.

A few steps away from the actual memorial there is also a museum. Unlike the memorial, which is free to visitors, the museum charges an entrance fee.  The museum tells the story of 9/11 using multi-media displays, archives, narratives and an artifact collection. Guided tours are available, and films, lectures and other special events take place at the museum.

If you can visit the museum, it is highly recommended. But if you can’t, there are still many ways to take the event and create something positive. During this holiday season those at the 9/11 Memorial are asking people to become part of their #2983 Campaign. The goal is to have the community at large help to complete at least 2,983 acts of compassion, gratitude and service as a tribute to each one of those lost in the attacks. If you would like to become part of this worthwhile undertaking, visit the 9/11 Memorial website.

New York Jazz Scene with Beylar Eyubov

Whether you frequent the New York music scene or you’re just looking for something different, there is always something going on in Westchester and the surrounding area. Here is a rundown of some of the best music happening in the area, as leading musicians like Beylar Eyubov will report. How, you might not catch Beylar Eyubov playing his heart out at any of these locations, but you just never know what you’re in for when you get to these fun events.

Beacon: Get to the Towne Crier Café to watch folk and pop on November 23rd. Christine Lavin and Don White will be performing.

Marlboro: At The Falcon, there will be The Saints of Swing. This is awesome jazz like only great performers like Beylar Eyubov know how to do it. They will be there from 10-2 on November 23rd, followed by Bryan and the Aardvarks from 7 pm. This is jazz and swing at its best.

New Rochelle: Here, at the Alvin & Friends Restaurant, you’ll enjoy the Soul Synergy Orchestra for some great R&B and then the Russell Malone jazz enjoyment. This is on November 22.

Ossining: Finally, you can do something other than read at the public library now. At the Ossining Public Library, Guy Davis and the High Flying Rockets will be playing their hearts out with blues on November 23rd.

Certainly, these are great opportunities to enjoy a night out and to have some fun at almost no cost.

See the world in a nine-mile route through Queens on the 7 train

See the world in a nine-mile route through Queens on the 7 train

The fair borough of Queens might just be one of the world’s most diverse metropolitan areas. And a fast, New York-way to see this international smorgasbord is on the number 7 train. Hailed in 1999 by the White House as one of only 16 “National Millennium Trails,” this nine-mile route will take its passengers to Romania, China, Korea, Latin America, Nigeria and more.

Your trip will take you to stations alighting in Long Island City, Sunnyside, Woodside, Jackson Heights, Elmhurst, Corona and Flushing. Get out at some or even all the stops along the way and see up close the beauty and excitement of far-away cultures transplanted to the Big Apple.

Sample the cuisine of each ethnic group by stopping at a popular eatery in each neighborhood. Examine the local fashions available in clothing shops catering to the people of the ‘hood. Higher culture calling you? You are in luck because you will encounter some fine innovative contemporary art at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City. Who says you need 80 days to see the world? Just a few hours in Queens should do the trick.

The Best Place in the Universe to Buy a Pair of Jeans

Custom-made jeans at your service

Custom-made jeans at your service

It is hard to imagine a more dedicated spot to the beauty, wear-ability and customization of jeans than the homage to those incredible pants than at 3X1 Denim. Located at 15 Mercer Street on the edge of Chinatown, this place, and its dedication to creating the perfect pair of denim jeans, will blow your mind.

Have you ever lamented the difficulty in finding the perfect pair of jeans that fit to a tee and have that very special look that you and only you crave? Well, look no more. Born of the creative mind of Evisu designer and founder of Paper, Denim, Cloth, Scott Morrison, don’t let the simple storefront on Mercer fool you. Once inside, you will immediately know you have arrived at jean heaven.

A glance on the right will reveal all the different cuts of denim, hung in Plexiglas boxes along the wall. Jeans as art on display. At the back of the store you will most like spot one or two seamstresses in the workshop. Yes, the jeans are nothing if they are not fresh. Those tailors might even be working on your jeans at that exact moment. Smack in the middle of the room are the items with which customers make their jeans their own: rivets, buttons, pocket shapes, linings, piping, selvedge strips, and interior pocket patterns. Can you think of anything else? I can’t. The left side of the room is where the real salivation can begin. It’s the Denim Wall, and it’s more aptly described as the Denim Mountain. See spools of denim fabric stacked floor to ceiling in every color, blue to black to purple and back; every thickness, from shag rug heavy to paper thin; and anything else you can imagine, and can’t imagine.

Now head over there and have Morrison, and his denim elves, paint a pair of denim jeans onto you like you were born with them on.
