Manhattan, New York, NY, USA
No matter if it's an easier way to check in to NYFW or an unexpected way to capture what's happening on Fifth Avenue, we love discovering new iPhone apps.
Meet Cinemagram. It's where photos & video meet to create a new way of looking at things. Just video, select what you want to move & choose a filter.
Note: The app still is new - so be patient with the kinks... it's worth it.
Photographer Steven Siegel shot street photography throughout NYC's five boroughs during the 70s, 80s and 90s. Here gothamist.com published his thoughts on the changes NYC has been through. He beautifully and simply lays out the tradeoffs of change as I think all New Yorkers see (and struggle with) them.
A true New York City secret: Bill Brand's recently restored subway art, Masstransiscope.
Only visible to riders on Manhattan-bound B & Q trains, this flickering bit of urban art gives you a jolt of color (and an unexpected moment of peace) during an otherwise dull & crammed commute.
We love BAM here at BG (we've even collaborated with the Brooklyn-based establishment a few times) - so we're thrilled to discover their newly-launched blog celebrating their 150th anniversary.

Oh, and if you haven't visited their movie theater, you must.

Obsessions come & go. While shoes remain a constant, our latest shoe obsession is that of the chic slipper. Comfortable and chic (with a nudge to the Upper East Side), slippers are a stylish way to glide through the office.
