Art Classes for Beginners in NYC

Drawing and painting is a great wintertime hobby outside the typical hibernation routine, and NYC has a plethora of options. These three are my favorites for their attitude, and their relationship to the city and the art world.

The Story of How New Yorkers Came to Be So Aggressively In Love With Their City.

I’ve spent a total of almost three years in this great city. While that may be peanuts compared to the lifers, born-and-bred New Yorkers are in the minority. People like me—raised in Wisconsin, college in Chicago, recently moved—are the pulse of this city. College grads and immigrants and families from all over the globe come here to work hard for their own futures, and to see the dynamic and sometimes clashing result of mixing so many cultures and backgrounds from both […]

Barney Greengrass: The Jewish New York Deli Experience

New York, I Love You

New York City. How could it get any better than this? Two videos hit YouTube this week, and both serve to remind the 19.4 million people who live here why they don’t leave. How spectacular is a city that can have such schizophrenic tastes? Discussing highbrow publications in one moment, and in the next, riding the subway without pants? See the magic yourself in these two quickies: They say you have to live here for 10 years before you can […]

Gaga’s Workshop at Barneys New York

New York City’s fanciest Fifth Avenue department stores take a populist turn every December and become something for everyone, regardless of budget limitations with the ornate store window displays that are integral to the city’s holiday cheer. Outsiders and insiders pass the windows for weeks after they are unveiled, always to great excitement, and appreciate them for the fashion-centric public art displays they are. This year Barneys took the holiday season as a chance to create something a bit different […]

TKGO on Tumblr

You might have noticed we’ve taken a break from post Shots of the Week, but we have still been out snapping an inordinate amount of photographs. Our primary repository for these images is our TKGO Tumblr: http://tkgo.tumblr.com/. Check it out! Our latest photo is Tara’s Instagram-med croissant sandwich from the delectable Choco Bolo. Tara and I were reunited (finally!) in New York City this past weekend, and the Nolita café location was the site of one our weekend breakfasts. And […]
