At Protein Bakery, a Balanced Life Includes Blondies and Brownies

BY DUSICA SUE MALESEVIC | Fifteen thousand of anything is a lot, but how about 15,000 pieces of baked goods a week?

Hunting for Easter Eggs in the Tale of Trump’s Relentless Rebirth

BY MAX BURBANK | To those of you who read my column on the regular (thanks, all six of you, sincerely), it may come as something of a shock that in addition to being an incisive writer of scathing satire, I am also Sunday school teacher. Admittedly, it’s an odd fit, as my writing demonstrates […]

Eco-Friendly, Ethically Sourced: Small Businesses Worth Sustaining

BY VICTORIA CALI & NICHOLAS ESPOSITO | From our captivating parks to the breathtaking skyline, New York City is a landscape just begging to be painted — but the beauty of our city (and the larger world beyond it) is not necessarily everlasting. We all know by now that decades of our not-so-great actions have […]

Walking With Alejandro

Walking With Alejandro

BY JOHN A. MUDD | Alejandro Medina: I try and let the name roll off my tongue with the Latin flair it deserves. Alejandro painstakingly hobbles along, huffing and puffing, and trying to keep pace with my stride. His legs do not carry him well. He is old beyond his years, and has lived a […]

A Local ‘Wonder’ One Hopes Will Never Cease

BY JOSH ROGERS | A toddler followed her brother and squealed with delight as he held up books she obviously liked. “He asks to come here all the time,” Jordana Blitz, the children’s mother, said on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

Cruising the West Side Highway in a Tesla Test Drive

BY RANIA RICHARDSON | Like many other New York City apartment-dwelling environmentalists, my husband, John, and I do not own a car. Our carbon (ecological) footprint is the size of a postage stamp, and we’d like to keep it that way. But when we came upon the new Tesla flagship in the Meatpacking District, we […]

Food for Thought from the GVCCC: Unforgettable Edibles as Unique as Chelsea

BY VICTORIA CALI & NICHOLAS ESPOSITO | We’re all guilty of it: falling into the same monotonous groove of our everyday eating habits. Why change them, right? But what we fail to fully appreciate is the variety of food at our fingertips — and within easy walking distance. Here at the Greenwich Village-Chelsea Chamber of […]

Max’s Magnificent Torch for the Dreadful Olympics

BY MAX BURBANK Oh lord, it’s here! The Winter Olympics! That magical time when everybody pretends to be wildly passionate and knowledgeable about figure skating, despite the fact it’s the only time they ever watch it.
