NEW NEW YORK: Michael Pitt

by Jessica Glick

The rain beat down, the reverberating thuds sounded like bullets on the subway window. I saw multicolored pains of glass and graffiti telling me to “do more” when I suddenly realized I was in Brooklyn. I exited on the northwest corner of the street and hoped my way would reveal itself. A man in a [...]

NEW NEW YORK: VIA AUDIO, Natural Language

by Jessica Glick

The howling wind swept the city’s debris into the air creating cyclones of leaves and garbage on the pathway to the garden. The ominous silver tint in the sky stayed behind me as I inched closer to my destination. I easily lost myself inside the tranquil Brooklyn hideaway as I waited for them. I saw [...]

I looked down at the busy New York City street. The honking horns below and the chattering voices nearby faded as I focused on the endless road in front of me. Suddenly stranded in contemplation of circumstance and possibility, his presence redirected my thoughts. After a brief introduction, we walked to a quiet spot surrounded [...]

NEW NEW YORK: Dinco D.

by Jessica Glick

I waited for him at the corner of Bowery and East Houston. As he sauntered towards me, I momentarily returned to the night we first met. It was only a few weeks prior that I found myself on the roof deck of a ship sailing through the Hudson River. Clearly enamored by the view of [...]

BROOKLYN FEAST

by Seth Kushner

New York’s most famous Italian Feast is surely San Gennaro in little Italy, but if you’ve ever pushed through the massive crowds to try to grab a sausage and pepper hero, you know it’s a tourist trap. Less famous and more “authentic” is Bensonhurst Brooklyn’s 18th Avenue Feast, AKA The Fest of Santa Rosalia, which [...]

MY BROOKLYN

by Seth Kushner

Brooklyn–A thriving mecca of 2 million people, which would be the fourth largest city in America, if it wasn’t designated simply a “borough.” I grew up in the Sheepshead Bay, a middle-class, mostly white area of South Brooklyn, which is neither urban nor suburban, but something in-between.  Our two-family attached home, with the front lawn, [...]

NEW NEW YORK: SISSY CLEMENS, WAX POETIC

by Jessica Glick

She opened the door and I momentarily felt as though we were meeting for the first time. It had been about a year since we last saw each other; we often only meet under creative circumstances. However, my feelings of unfamiliarity vanished by the time we reached her white couch. She sat down and I [...]

NEW NEW YORK: SABINE BLAIZIN

by Jessica Glick

I got off the subway at City Hall. I sat down on a nearby bench, closed my eyes, and let the sun warm me as I waited for her. It was one of the warmer days of winter and I felt myself falling back in love with the city. She arrived with a smile on [...]

NEW NEW YORK: LIZ WENDELBO, of XENO AND OAKLANDER

by Jessica Glick

I got off the L train on a familiar street. As I searched for her apartment number, I realized I was nearing a forgotten place. I was suddenly filled with melancholic memories. I would later explain to her that I very briefly lived on the block when she would ask if I knew the neighborhood. [...]
