Snow Problem At All: Volunteers Dig The High Line

Snow Problem At All: Volunteers Dig The High Line

  With its densely planted landscape vulnerable to rock salt and chemical melting products, the High Line relies upon old school shovels and push-behind brooms to clear snow from its narrow walkways. That’s where you come in, on the morning after a large accumulation. Once the Operations staff rolls out the snow blowers, drop-in volunteers […]

High Line Seeks Volunteers, to Clean and Clear

High Line Seeks Volunteers, to Clean and Clear

With its densely planted landscape vulnerable to rock salt and chemical melting products, the High Line relies upon old school shovels and push-behind brooms to clear snow from its narrow walkways. That’s where you come in, on the morning after a large accumulation. Once the Operations staff rolls out the snow blowers, drop-in volunteers are […]

Frigid Temps Don’t Distract from Confronting Cold Reality

Come rain, shine or Polar Vortex, cold, you can count on seeing Chelsea Neighbors United to End the War on the northwest corner of Eighth Avenue and 24th Street — every Tuesday, from 6-7pm. What began as a response to the Iraq War has grown to encompass Afghanistan and other wars. It will continue, they […]

At Penn South, Fragile Ceramics for a Solid Cause

At Penn South, Fragile Ceramics for a Solid Cause

Face facts, lazy Santa. It’ll take most of 2014 to repair your reputation if the best gift you can come up with is some impersonal piece of functional art from Pier 1 Imports. To the rescue, in the Saint Nick of time, comes the Annual Penn South Ceramics Studio Holiday Sale. It’s a great opportunity […]

Chelsea Voters Weigh in on the Fine Print

Chelsea Voters Weigh in on the Fine Print

When Chelsea Now stopped by West 18th Street’s Bayard Rustin High School on the morning of November 5, there was little tension in the air as to who our next mayor would be. As with much of the city’s electorate, not a single person in our informal poll came to the polls intent on voting […]

General Election Still a Sweet Treat for Quinn

General Election Still a Sweet Treat for Quinn

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn no doubt had once envisioned November 5 as the day she would cast a vote to help make herself mayor. But whatever sadness she might have felt inside, we saw no signs of it as we bumped into her at the PS33 bake sale, just after she voted in Chelsea. […]

Hit the Road Jack: Pumpkin Composting

Hit the Road Jack: Pumpkin Composting

The second day of November may be too soon for all things Santa, but one thing’s for sure: Jack (as in O-Lantern) has overstayed his welcome. But why consign him to the trash heap of history, when yesterday’s carefully carved pumpkin still has a legitimate contribution to make? This year, give your favorite October gourd […]

Art Walk Invites You Behind Closed Doors

Art Walk Invites You Behind Closed Doors

As sprawling and visually appealing as the elevated park its name invokes, “High Line Open Studios” is a self-guided tour of work spaces normally open by appointment only — allowing visitors to gain unique insights into the creative process through a dialogue that strips away the layers between artist and enthusiast. From 6-8pm on Fri., […]

London Calling: ‘Terrace’ Street Fair Set for Sept. 28

London Calling: ‘Terrace’ Street Fair Set for Sept. 28

Every year, the classy pack rats of London Terrace Gardens kick their spare wares to just beyond the curb — and every year, like clockwork, we make the observation that this annual event is gloriously bereft of funnel cakes, overpriced lemonade, threadbare sheets and tube socks of dubious aesthetic value. Held on Sat., Sept. 28, […]

‘Wives’ Eavesdrops on Bronx Bombers’ Better Halves

‘Wives’ Eavesdrops on Bronx Bombers’ Better Halves

Those Bronx-based boys of summer have had their share of drama this season — on and off the field. But year in and year out, some of best action happens behind the scenes, as the players on a “team-within-a-team” experience the rivalries and partnerships that come with being one of the “Yankee Wives.” This Group […]
