Google has inked a deal with New York to replace regular yellows with driverless cabs. As if New York cab drivers didn’t have enough problems (I’m looking at you, Uber), Google has signed a deal with the city of New York to bring their patented driverless cars to the New York taxi fleet. De Blasio has announced that there will be 5,000 driverless cabs on the streets by 2016. Each cab will also... More...

The lights feature same sex couple holding hands to signal when it is safe to cross the street. They were originally installed as part of the contest, but have become so popular that the city has decided to keep them. The lights rece... More...

Miami Beach Bans Alcohol Sale after 2 AM

Miami Beach Commissioners have approved a ban on alcohol sales after 2 AM. The bad news is, you can no longer buy liquor at sidewalk cafes in Miami Beach between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. The good news is, it’s still really easy to get coke there. I jest, but not really. If you have ever been to Miami you know that every five minutes someone walks up to you trying to some fake cocaine, but I digress. The ban ... More...

FLYING SPIDERS IN CHICAGO, YOU GUYS. Every spring in Chicago, ‘flying’ spiders are found outside the windows of skyscrapers. If I ever need a reason not to move to the windy city, flying spiders are it. Each spring, residents of Chicago report finding spiders outside their windows, sometimes as high as 81 floors up. You have to wonder how in the Hell a spider could get up that high, since they... More...

Are You Paying Fair Market Rent in NYC?

A map of average rent prices per subway stop in New York. Anyone who has ever lived in NYC knows that rent is a serious issue here. In New York, it isn’t inappropriate to ask someone what they pay in rent upon first meeting them, it isn’t uncommon for you to have to move to a different borough when the rent rises even though you have lived in the apartment for five years, and it isn’t likely to c...

Freedom Cove is a self-sustaining island in Canada. If living off the grid is your thing (and lets face it, who wouldn’t like to run away from our government sometimes), then you should probably pay attention. Canadian couple Wayne Adams and Catherine King have been living off-the-grid since 1992 in Freedom Cove, a self-sustaining, floating island they built. The Freedom Cove is a totally unique stru...

Beautiful old photos of the New York Subway System. Ask anyone who lives here, the most quintessentially New York thing about New York is the subway system. Nowhere else in the world is there a rail system as dirty, with as many delays, homeless people, subway singers, and fashion whores touching up their mascara on their 9 AM train rides of shame. It is very New York, and it is glorious. The New ... More...

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you’re under the impression that a mullet toss is the literal throwing of humans with mullet-styled hair. It’s not, but I’m betting a lot of the people involved in said mullet toss DO have mullets on their heads. Perdido Key, Fla. is well known for white sand beaches and turquoise Gulf waters. The sixteen mile-long island is home to B... More...

People of Panama City takes trashy to the next level. I may have lived in New York for the past 7 years, but I will always, always be from Panama City, Florida. It doesn’t matter how long you are away, or if you never live there again, if you were born and raised in Panama City you will never escape. Personally, I never want to. I don’t know of any other place that is both so abundantly beautiful and ... More...
