Whether you've made your brunch and open house plans for the weekend or still have a few things up in the air, if you're up for a bit more exploring and enjoyment of the Upper East Side, then you may want to stop by the Guggenheim for an hour or two this Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Even without a keen interest in poetry or photography, anyone with a bit of curiosity as well as an appreciation for capturing tiny moments of wonderment, intimacy, or bliss may find plenty to enjoy at the Guggenheim's current exhibit, "Photo-Poetics: An Anthology" (through March 27).
Featuring contributions from ten different artists, "Photo-Poetics" hones in on the intersection between visual images; our emotional reactions to those images; the stories we tell ourselves in response to those images and reactions; and the feelings that we carry away from the exhibit and hold throughout the rest of our lives, or at the very least, for the next few hours.
Although it's only Tuesday, it's never too early to make plans for the weekend ahead. For many, part of what makes New York City great is the speed and pacing of brunch. Though some restaurants have specific times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; early-bird specials; or menu items that are only available during specific hours, often the best places for brunch keep a simple and open schedule: brunch starts when you arrive, and it ends when you leave.
As we've long ago and without question officially entered the information age, one of the more exciting aspects of looking for an apartment in New York City rests with potential home buyers' ability to look-up a wide array of facts and information.
Want to know what year the building you're considering buying in was constructed? Check out the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Enter the building's address, and you'll get a wealth of information, including but not limited to: the year of contstruction, the square footage for the lot, the total square footage for the actual building, as well as the building's land use requirements and zoning classification.
Want to find out whether the townhouse, brownstone, or building that you're living in, or considering purchasing has any outstanding city violations? Take a gander over to the New York City Department of Buildings. While there, you can also check up on the house's or building's certificate(s) of occupancy.
One of the perks of living in a neighborhood that's awaiting the completion of a new subway line is taking advantage of the new shops, cafes, and restaurants that the train will bring.
Though Phase One of the Second Avenue Subway line is slated to be finished in December of this year (and may be pushed into early 2017), there's still a number of new businesses nearby that have staked out their position within the burgeoning segment of the Upper East Side.
