Mystico’s, Week of July 17, 2014

Mystico’s, Week of July 17, 2014

Aquarius  A battle between blind trust and gut instinct brews, when a friend asks you to play a small but crucial supporting role in their daffy moneymaking scheme. Pisces  Cultivate fuse box maintenance skills, or the dairy in the fridge will spoil before your outer borough super can make it into town.  Aries  Horizontal stripes, […]

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Week of July 17, 2014

Ask Aunt Chelsea, Week of July 17, 2014

Dear Aunt Chelsea: My parents will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary in a few weeks. I’ve been told (several times) that they don’t want any surprises: parties, presents, vacation cruises…nothing. As an only child, isn’t it my obligation to do something? They’re the only couple in my entire family who is still together (and alive!), […]

An Intimate Epic About Growing Up

An Intimate Epic About Growing Up

BY SEAN EGAN  |  There is, quite literally, nothing like writer/director Richard Linklater’s latest feature. The conceit is simple — the film follows the life of Mason Jr., a young boy from a broken home, as he grows into a young man in Texas. Within this framework, though, lies a quiet tour de force of […]

It’s Melting! It’s Melting!

It’s Melting! It’s Melting!

BY SCOTT STIFFLER    |  Like the noonday sun bearing down on a treat from the Mister Softee truck, time has been melting away the New Ohio Theatre’s Ice Factory Festival — its annual summertime showcase, where emerging and established companies develop their work. Of the six featured Ice Factory productions, three remain. Through July […]

Just Do Art. Week of July 17, 2014

Just Do Art. Week of July 17, 2014

HELL’S KITCHEN KIDS PERFORM MINI-MUSICALS Some kids go to summer camp to sit around the fire and toast marshmallows — and that’s fine, if that sort of thing entertains you. But by the time 10 Hell’s Kitchen kids return from their week in the country, the stories they have to tell will be well-written, thoroughly […]

Letters. Week of July 17, 2014

Pipe down, Aunt Chelsea! To The Editor: Re: “Ask Aunt Chelsea” (advice column, July 3, 2014): Hey “Aunt Chelsea” — are you on crack now? That was the most self-serving, off the mark and, frankly, completely stupid answer I have ever seen in this column, and that is going some. How about a new career […]

Praying for Your Job

BY PAUL SCHINDLER Three years ago, shortly after enactment of New York’s marriage equality law, I had the opportunity for a one-on-one interview with Governor Andrew Cuomo about the hands-on role he played in the fateful final days leading up to that measure’s approval by the Republican-controlled Senate. One critical factor in his negotiations with […]

Making Some Noise About After Hours Construction

Making Some Noise About After Hours Construction

BY ZACH WILLIAMS  |  For those who’ve put down roots in West Chelsea, the impact of ongoing residential development is hitting home — early in the morning or late into the night, often at the expense of restful sleep and normal everyday activities. The New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) allows construction to take […]

Secret Parks of Chelsea

Secret Parks of Chelsea

BY RAANAN GEBERER  |  Like much of Manhattan, Chelsea has a scarcity of green spaces dedicated to nothing more than the simple acts of rest or play. Clement Clarke Moore Park, the Penn South playground, Chelsea Park, Hudson River Park, and Chelsea Waterside Park comprise a handful of options. As part of their Affordable Housing […]

CB4 Strives to Balance Preservation, Progress

CB4 Strives to Balance Preservation, Progress

BY EILEEN STUKANE  |  Real estate development is transforming New York City with remarkable speed. The paradox created by holding onto the familiar while rapidly adjusting to the new was apparent at the July 7 Chelsea Land Use Committee (CLUC) meeting of Community Board 4 (CB4). The possibility of losing a vintage sign on a […]
