One of the mixed blessings of being twenty and twenty-one and even twenty-three is the conviction that nothing like this, all evidence to the contrary notwithstanding, has ever happened to anyone before.

— Joan Didion, “Goodbye to All That”

Jamel Shabazz, NYC

These are so great! Click through for more of the awesomeness of the early 80s, complete with plenty of leather and arm-crossing.

BEST PLACE TO HELP A CHARITY WHILE BUYING STUFF

Best of New York: Entertain yourself, Gotham style

(via housingworksbookstore)

As of today I’m officially a volunteer at Housing Works bookstore! I can’t wait to start next week because they are the coolest and everyone should buy books there.

Went to the NYHS for the first time last weekend! The WWI & NYC exhibit was awesome and I learned so many new facts! I think I need to work there at some point in my life.

My favorite Oscars moment:

10 years ago, only five months after September 11th, Woody Allen makes an unprecedented appearance at The Academy Awards (he had never appeared before, and has never since, and that likely won’t change this year with Midnight in Paris) to introduce a montage of films shot in New York City put together by Nora Ephron.

Absolutely fantastic. 

After seeing a Berenice Abbott photography exhibit at the Jeu de Paume in Paris I’ve been ridiculously homesick for New York.

An Artistic Comparison of Paris and New York

As polar opposite as Paris and New York may seem at times, it’s hard to love one city and hate the other. Each is complex in its offerings, diverse in its appeal, and the debate over which city is supreme evidently warrants its own blog. Vahram Muratyan is the author and artist behind Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities, a blog that pits the pride and joy of both cities against each other in a magnificent series of minimalist prints. Through colorful graphics that border on 8-bit simplicity, Paris and New York come head to head, making it harder than ever to choose which city does it best. Read more.

I picked this up in the bookstore the other day and it’s super cute!
