What brought you to NYC?
Some college friends had an extra room in their loft/garage.
What you love about your nabe?
I can buy anything I want on the sidewalk, the girls all wear boots and have bangs, I can eat at a different Thai restaurant everyday of the week, and of course the morning commute on the L train!
I've never been to Marlow & Sons and not said, "This is the best thing I've ever had! Even dessert. But that's probably no surprise. There's also something special about a hanger steak and a beer at Radegast on a Sunday night.
None, but Topps on the Waterfront has a walk in cooler and cheap 12 packs of Schaffer. Both Great in the middle of summer.
Favorite local designer:
Octopi! Anyone who can make yellow faux fur hot has to be #1 in my book.
Favorite NYC band:
Cheeseburger. They never cease to amaze live and the drummer is hot as hell.
Favorite corner to people watch:
N12 and Bedford. Turkey's Nest drunks, tennis players and cute dogs in the park! All at once.
Signature karaoke song
Rock Lobster? I do a killer Fred Schneider and duets/crowd participation songs are always best! Especially when you get to make sea animal sounds. ooo-wwaaaaahhh
Rising from the ruins of war, Neues Museum in Berlin mixes old and new - David Chipperfield turned a pile of rubble into a masterpiece of renovation and rehabilitation.
