L Train Crisis? Let’s Get Real; It’s Mostly Hype

L Train Crisis? Let’s Get Real; It’s Mostly Hype

BY JOHN WETHERHOLD | The closure of the L train is indeed a huge problem if you live in Brooklyn. Not so much In Manhattan. Extremist groups — who want to achieve a vision that only they want — take advantage of this supposed “crisis” to promote a radical agenda. Are they part of the […]

Not Gone, Girl

Not Gone, Girl

BY LENORE SKENAZY | If you’re thinking of writing a bestseller, I’ve got a word of advice for you: Girl. Put “Girl” in the title and you almost don’t have to do anything else, except figure out a plot, some twists, and an ending. And don’t forget to put a girl character in there, of […]

Do Something Meaningful For Supermarkets

Do Something Meaningful For Supermarkets

BY KIRSTEN THEODOS | For the past two years, I have dedicated my free time — when I’m not raising my two young children — advocating for the City Council to pass the Small Business Jobs Survival Act (SBJSA), a bill that would stop in excess of 1,000 small businesses from closing and save 8,000 […]

Kids and the High Cost of Not Wasting Time

Kids and the High Cost of Not Wasting Time

BY LENORE SKENAZY | Every day after school, and all day on weekends, kids run outside… to get to their soccer league, or ballet lesson, or origami boot camp. It’s all good, but here’s what it isn’t: Play. Playing is something else entirely, a chance for kids to make up games, run around, paint a […]

It’s an Even Smaller World, After All

It’s an Even Smaller World, After All

BY LENORE SKENAZY | A new airport is about to open on 44th St., just west of Times Square. It has 17 gates, plenty of parking, 34 gift stores and, of course, planes taking off and landing day and night. Best of all, a ticket only costs $25. That’s because this airport is the jewel […]

Indulging in the Luxury Show

Indulging in the Luxury Show

BY LENORE SKENAZY | If you’ve been wondering what to do with all that extra cash you’re so sick of, I hope you hightailed it over to the Luxury Technology Show last week in Chelsea. Otherwise, you might not be aware of some of the must-haves coming soon — or already upon us — like […]

Scanning for the Future as Sign of the Times

Scanning for the Future as Sign of the Times

BY LENORE SKENAZY | Congratulations, you’re going to have a baby! Would you like to know if, 50 years or so down the line, he or she might develop colon cancer? And by the way, the baby may also have a slightly increased risk of Alzheimer’s. Would you like to know about that, too? Oh, […]

Playboy Belongs in a (Vegas) Museum

Playboy Belongs in a (Vegas) Museum

BY LENORE SKENAZY | Playboy magazine used to be the illicit thrill that men of all ages hid in their sock drawers.  Now it is more like the socks. Even though the magazine recently decided to add naked ladies back into the mix (no nudes, it seems, was bad nudes), it is still hard to […]

Time for Council Action on Tenant Harassment

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | You can’t swing a dead cat in Manhattan without hitting a politician willing to denounce President Donald Trump in no uncertain terms. Among the justified knocks on the new White House occupant is that his agenda will have a corrosive impact on the faith Americans place in the power of government […]

PeopleWay, Yea and Nay: Debating the Fate of 14th Street

YEA: I am a member of Transportation Alternatives (TransAlt; transalt.org) who lives on 14th St., between Seventh and Eighth Aves. I stand for a more people-friendly 14th St., and for a more efficient, healthy, and equitable use of its right of way, prioritizing walking, cycling, and clean public transportation. This is, in my opinion, the […]
