Getting groceries is no easy task in the current climate, from waiting in lines to scavenging for toilet paper. But a couple of new Twitter accounts are hoping to make it a bit less stressful, at least for those New Yorkers still heading to Trader Joe’s. Trader Joes Line Alert was started by a Brooklyn Heights resident to let people know how long the line currently is at the Court Street store. Likewise, EV TJs and Target Line will let you know how long the lines are at both the Trader Joe’s and Target on 14th Street and Avenue A. And then there’s Trader Joes Line Murray Hill.

When it comes to Art Deco architecture in NYC, Anthony W. Robins is your guy. A native New Yorker, 20-year veteran of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and author of books on Grand Central Terminal, the World Trade Center, and the art and architecture of the subway system, Robins is considered the foremost expert on the ornamental, geometric style, having organized the first regularly scheduled series of Art Deco tours through the Art Deco Society of New York in 1981.

Robins has now taken over 30 years of experience in New York’s Art Deco architecture and distilled it into his latest book, “New York Art Deco: A Guide to Gotham’s Jazz Age Architecture.” Starting with an introduction on the style and its history in NYC, the book includes 15 walking tour itineraries across the boroughs, each with a handy map designed by legendary cartographer John Tauranac. 6sqft has partnered up with the author to offer a signed copy of the book to one reader.

Snap a picture (using your best photography skills, of course) of your favorite piece of Art Deco architecture anywhere in the five boroughs. Share it with us on Instagram @6sqft with the hashtag #6sqftArtDeco and the location. On Tuesday, July 11th we’ll pick our favorite photo and give one lucky reader a signed copy of “New York Art Deco.”

On the Grid, Hyperakt, travel apps

These days when we travel we look for recommendations from real people, whether it be through friends or poring over online reviews. Brooklyn design firm Hyperakt recognized this trend and created a new platform that calls itself the “designer’s neighborhood guide.” Dubbed On the Grid, the site is a place “where local design firms contribute personalized descriptions for their favorite places,” according to Gizmodo. Along with the picks and reviews, Hyperakt adds sharp photos, maps, and fun illustrations of local landmarks. They also categorize the picks with icons like a wine glass for bars, paint palette for cultural spots, and dumbbell for fitness outposts. Though On the Grid wasn’t designed as an app, it works just as nicely on a mobile device as it does on a regular computer screen.
