New York City & Union Square

New York is the most populous city in the United States and the center of the New York Metropolitan Area, one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. Union Square is an important and historic intersection in Manhattan in New York City, located where Broadway and the former Bowery Road – now Park Avenue – came together in the early 19th century; its name celebrates neither the Federal union of the United States nor labor unions but rather denotes that here was the union of the two principal thoroughfares of the island . 5.0/5

As some held Spanish-language signs that said "Your daughter could be number 44" or "Your son could be number 44," the woman reminded listeners that the students in Guerrero defended the rights of their communities, as we are all called to do. advertisement ARTURO CONDE In a vigil in New York City's Union Square on Sunday, a sign said, "Your Daughter Could Be 44," in reference to the 43 teachers college students who disappeared in Iguala, Mexico.

From New York Bike Portraits: 'll be profiling New Yorkers using the newly launched Citi Bike bike share system. First up, Damon. I met Damon at a Citi Bike dock on Broadway just below Union Square. He takes the train to Grand Central from New Rochelle and thinks bike share might replace the subway segment of his commute between Grand Central and his office on Wall St. He says his excitement for the new transit option surprises even him. “I’m never a first adopter of anything. I don’t even own a smart phone. Though I might have to get one now for the Citi Bike app.”

Rather, it was a worldwide mobilization against corporate greed, the assault on our health and environment, and the oppression of small farmers. As the diverse crowd gathered in New York City’s Union Square on an unseasonably cold and rainy Memorial Day weekend – just as they did in hundreds of cities around the world – it was clear that Monsanto and the issue of health and food sovereignty transcends political ideology. People from all walks of life joined together to reject Monsanto and its pesticides, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), and socially and environmentally destructive business practices. However, some might wonder, why ...
  EDITH KERMIT CAROW, daughter of CHARLES CAROW and GERTRUDE ELIZABETH TYLER, residents of New York City's Union Square, knew Theodore Roosevelt practically from birth. As a toddler she became a playmate of his younger sister Corinne, the two girls had been born just seven weeks apart. Edith was born into an environment of breeding, comfort and tradition. But the family finances which would have once labeled them "privileged" if not "wealthy" became increasingly limited. Edith's father's battle with alcoholism, and inflation after the Civil War, changed the family's economic position, but not necessarily its social one. From the time Edith was six years old, she and her parents lived with various relatives.   Theodore Roosevelt's mother, invited "Edie" to join the the younger Roosevelt children for her earliest schooling at the Roosevelt home with Theodore's Aunt Anna, the Roosevelt children's governess. Edith also attended Miss Comstock's "finishing" school, appropriate and proper for a young lady of t ...
The latest trend in shopping, particularly for the holidays, is temporary - literally. Pop-up stores, retailers who open for just a few days or weeks, are cropping up all over town to give us all the opportunity to pick up unique gifts at various prices points this season. The concept isn't new (think of the holiday markets at Columbus Circle and Union Square), but we have a particularly large influx this year, as new designers and mainstream retailers are taking advantage of novel real estate alternatives to test new products, and even a permanent store. All of that is great news for us consumers: Among my New York City favorites is Phaidon, the London-based upscale book publisher, which has opened a pop-up filled with wonderful art books at 100 Wooster Street through January. I visited recently to participate in a segment on pop-ups to run on the CBS Evening News, and the staff is as wonderful as the selection.

True Love Stories — What They Did For Love On a Sunday evening last November, Patrick Moberg, 21, a website developer, was in the Union Square subway station in New York City. “Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed this girl,” he says.“She had bright blue shorts and dark blue tights and a flower in the back of her hair.” New York’s fun if you’re a guy — the city’s lousy with gorgeous women. But this one was different. She was his perfect girl. When the number 5 train pulled into the station, the two got on. “I was enthralled,” he says. “I noticed details like her braided hair and that she was writing in a pad. I couldn’t shake the desire to talk to her.” Taking a deep breath, he headed her way. Just then the train pulled into the Bowling Green station. The doors opened, a rush of humanity swarmed in, and then suddenly, she was gone. He considered giving chase, but there’s a Fine Line between blind love and stalking. He thought of plastering the station with posters. Then a b ...

Recent transplants congregate in priciest NYC hoods Manhattan's tonier nabes are increasingly populated by New Yorkers imported from other states and countries, WNYC reported. Some of the borough's priciest areas -- including Tribeca, the West Village and Greenwich Village -- are the neighborhoods of choice for New York City's newest residents. More than 20 percent of the new residents in a U.S. Census tract near Union Square moved to the neighborhood from another state, WNYC said, using data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey from 2011, which looked at the trend over the past five years.

I am happy to be home from our wonderful yet crazy East coast trip. Denver wasn't planned but we were bumped off our flight yesterday so we decided to make the best of the layover. We took the boys to see the Columbine memorial and then to downtown Denver. Washington DC was fun. Bermuda had some of the most picturesque beaches with pink sand that I have ever seen. Boston was informative and the best canolis ever. Newport, Rhode Island had great Lobster Rolls and we were able to see quite a bit of the town on the scooters we rented. New York City was my favorite not only because I love the bike ride in Cental Park but because I got to see my beautiful sweet nieces and nephew. Thank you Tiffany for the amazing dinner in Union Square. And thank you Krystal, Oliver and Sweet Charlotte for the great tour of Larchmont and the dinner at your local hangout.

Tomgram: Noam Chomsky, A Rebellious World or a New Dark Age? Posted by Noam Chomsky at 7:39am, May 8, 2012. If you had followed May Day protests in New York City in the mainstream media, you might hardly have noticed that they happened at all. The stories were generally tucked away, minimalist, focused on a few arrests, and spoke of “hundreds” of protesters in the streets, or maybe, if a reporter was feeling especially generous, a vague “thousands.” I did my own rough count on the largest of the Occupy protests that day. It left Union Square in the evening heading for the Wall Street area. I walked through the march front to back, figuring a couple of thousand loosely packed protesters to a block, and came up with a conservative estimate of 15,000 people. Maybe it wasn’t the biggest protest of all time, but sizeable enough given that Occupy, an organization without strong structures but once strongly located, had been (quite literally) pushed or even beaten out of its camps in Zuccotti Park and ...

Yesterday afternoon, I took a walk down 14th Street-Union Square where my job is located and found a crowd of Occupy Wall Street protesters holding up picket signs as they voiced their opinions on the status of our nation's economy, greed, and racial inequality. It got me thinking, when the late great Pastor David Wilkerson prophesied about their being chaos and riots in the streets of New York City, did he mean Occupy? What do you think, Times Square Church congregants?
I celebrated May Day running around the city with the banner in support of the Guatemalan victims of non-consensual U.S medical experiments. I was at the Stop and Frisk trial in Manhattan Criminal Court with Princeton Professor Cornell West, and spoke to him about the Guatemalan experiments and Ireland. I then went to Union Square for May Day celebrations with my fellow Veterans For Peace brothers. Hundreds of photos were taken of the banner. I ran into a Spanish television crew who are interested in covering the issue. I was approached by a friend of the Wellesley College professor who discovered the Guatemalan file on the experiments - they took pictures and took a flier to give to her. I also had a remarkable conversation with a woman who said she was a friend of Dr. Cutler who carried out the experiments she told me that he never mentioned the experiments to anyone, and she was amazed to learn about them. Just another day in New York City.

These *** need jobs. The Occupy Wall Street movement vows to create “the biggest shutdown” of New York City on Tuesday, along with disturbances in cities across the country to mark International Workers’ Day, May 1. One movement website,, threatens that “autonomous direct action groups within Occupy Wall Street, as part of the global mobilizations for general strike and economic noncompliance, will block one or more Manhattan-bound bridges or tunnels to protest the shameful opulence of the 1%.” It goes on to state: “This May 1, we will create the biggest shutdown the city of New York has ever seen. The city will be shut down, so enjoy the day without the 99%!” Occupy groups have been protesting economic disparity between the wealthy “1%” and the other “99%” of America. The movement will join scores of labor organizations observing May Day, Bloomberg News reports. Demonstrators plan to march from Union Square to Lower Manhattan, and to occupy Bryant Park across th ...
