We all know how important water is for our well-being but it can be difficult to know when we need to top up our levels of H20. U.S.-based BSX Technologies came up with the world’s first hydration monitor that measures a person’s water levels in real-time and notifies the wearer when to drink. The LVL (pronounced “level”) bracelet uses special red light technology to measure the body’s water content and other physiologic activities. The device, successfully funded over Kickstarter, can also track a wearer’s heart rate, sleep quality, activity (steps) and calories burned. Dustin Freckleton, founder and CEO at BSX Technologies, explains why staying hydrated isn’t always as easy as it sounds.

It’s hard not to crush on this Upstate Victorian, perfectly preserved since its construction in 1879 (h/t CIRCA). Located at 21 Curry Lane in New Hyde, both the architecture and location impress: the white house, with its original slate roof and wraparound porch, sits on a hill overlooking the Hudson River. It’s a 15- minute drive to the Metro North station in Poughkeepsie for city dwellers, and it’s $785,000 price tag is quite impressive.
A circular driveway leads up to the dreamy wraparound porch, which looks out over water, trees and hills. The home is within walking distance to the Hudson River and Vanderbilt Estate, as well as restaurants, a post office and library in town. (It’s not New York City level entertainment, but you won’t get a house like this in NYC for $785K!)
The interior is as well preserved as the exterior, with the original marble fireplaces, plaster crown moldings and crystal chandeliers.
Floor-to-ceiling windows with French doors–boasting the original antique glass frame–frame the living and dining rooms. Both spaces have incredible views of the surrounding property.
A light-drenched sunroom was added to the historic structure, and comes with direct access to porch.
Talk about a country kitchen! It’s been upgraded with new appliances and ample cabinetry, according to the listing.
The second floor has a master bedroom with views toward the river, a full bathroom and two additional bedrooms. You could even built your own artist loft: there’s a cozy, semi-finished attic with its own heat, river views and library. Be sure to check the gallery for more photos of this idyllic upstate retreat.

New Yorkers looking to stay connected at all times as they traverse the city are relying on its free public Wi-Fi network in droves, LinkNYC announced Wednesday on its one-year anniversary. As of January 4th, more than 1 million people have joined the service since it was installed in January 2016, and roughly 40,000 people sign up each week.New Yorkers looking to stay connected at all times as they traverse the city are relying on its free public ...
You won’t need to see more than a few renderings and photos of new park space slated for Brooklyn Bridge Park to feel ready for summertime. First posted by Curbed from the park’s landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, renderings show the final design for one of the last undeveloped sections of the park between Montague and Joralemon streets. Known as the Pier 5 uplands, the hilly green space will be comprised of a stepped lawn, shaded grove, waterfront seating and new entrance off Joralemon Street. A sound-dampening berm will reduce noise from the nearby roadways. And it’s all on track to wrap construction right before summer.
Two new buildings are also a part of the uplands work. There will be a boathouse to host the park’s free community programs, as well as a larger operational facility that includes a horticulture lab. (Also, more public restrooms.) The stretch of Furman Street, which runs below the BQE, will be improved for guests to enter the buildings or the park.
A small bridge will connect the uplands to the “picnic peninsula” below, which was designed as a more active space within Pier 5. Besides outdoor grills and seating, this area has a playground and soccer fields.
In total, the Pier 5 parkland will span 4.5 acres and boast a new pathway that begins at the Joralemon entrance to help link it up with to the park’s existing greenway. That’s not the only park construction to be excited about, either. Starting this fall, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation will kick off work on Pier 3, which promises to bring a sprawling, open lawn right to the waterfront.

Jeff Simpson, the CEO of Greystone Development, is due to celebrate his ten year anniversary with the company this February. In his decade with the real estate firm, founded in 1992, he has overseen Greystone’s reemergence into the New York market by tapping into emerging neighborhoods around the city. Before he joined Greystone, Simpson worked with the Equity Office Properties team, helping reposition a number of their New York City office buildings, and oversaw over $100 million of redevelopment projects for Jones Lang LaSalle.
Simpson has more or less done it all when it comes to real estate, holding roles in investment, construction, engineering and management across all sectors of the market. At Greystone, he oversees the firm’s development team, managing new acquisitions as well as design, construction, sale and leasing. CityRealty spoke with Simpson on how the company has distinguished itself as a New York developer since it ramped up its investments in 2012, taking on projects in City Island, Brooklyn and Harlem. He also filled us in on new projects the company will debut next year—and the one development that’s most meaningful to him.Jeff Simpson, the CEO of Greystone Development, is due to celebrate his ten year anniversary with the company this February.

A couple weeks ago, a long list of artists, including Cindy Sherman and Richard Serra, started a petition calling for cultural institutions to close on Inauguration Day as “an act of noncompliance” against “Trumpism.” That list has grown to 740 artists and critics, and many galleries, museums, and academic spaces will shut their doors tomorrow according to the J20 Art Strike. But there’s also a long list of museums and cultural institutions across the city that have decided to take an alternate approach and remain open, offering free admission and/or special programming. From a marathon reading of Langston Hughes’s”Let America Be America Again” at the Brooklyn Museum to special gallery tours at the Rubin, these are all the (free!) ways to use the arts as an outlet on Inauguration Day.
Whitney Museum of American Art
The Whitney is waiving its $22 admission fee in order to “affirm [their] commitment to open dialogue, civic engagement, and the diversity of American art and culture.” They’re also offering special programming including: hour-long tours of a portrait collection that will “explore immigration, ethnicity, race, and the complexity of American identity;” a four-hour protest/lecture organized by Occupy Museums during which “artists, writers, and activists will affirm their values to resist and reimagine the current political climate;” and open discussions using art as a way to explore the issues at hand.
Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA)
Free admission, 11am-6pm
The free admission at MOCA will let guests see the current and timely exhibit “With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America,” which explores the “diverse layers of the Chinese American experience, while examining America’s journey as a nation of immigrants.” They’ve also installed a “response wall” where visitors can share their thoughts on the future of the country.
The New Museum has extended their pay-what-you-wish time from Thursday night to all day Friday “in recognition of art’s power to transform communities and to foster tolerance and empathy.” Take advantage to see all the current exhibits.
Rubin Museum of Art
Free admission, 6-10pm
Every week, the Rubin hosts their free K2 Friday Nights, with a DJ, special programs, and happy hour. Tomorrow, they’ll offer a special gallery tours called “Face Your Fears!” for guests to “see how the themes of powerful protection, intense vigilance, and overcoming ego have been expressed in art from the Himalayan region.” And if you don’t mind dropping $35, they’re hosting a meditation and yoga class accompanied by live electronic music from 7-8:30pm.
Museum of Arts & Design (MAD)
According to MAD, the museum currently has “an unprecedented number of solo exhibitions on view by women artists across generations,” and therefore, “in response to the call for the #J20 Art Strike, we have opted to remain open so these powerful works can be viewed by the public at a time when the topics present—from climate change to women’s issues—are very much at the forefront.”
New-York Historical Society
The Historical Society is typically free on Friday evenings, but thanks to their new exhibit “The Presidency Project,” tomorrow takes on more meaning. Included in the “museum-wide educational initiative to explore the role, powers, and responsibilities of the presidency” is the Subway Therapy installation, a display of artifacts from George Washington’s 1789 first American inauguration, and “We the People,” Nari Ward’s monumental new work of art that spells out these three words using shoelaces.
The DiMenna Center for Classical Music
Free event, 7pm-12am
Join musicians from across the NYC experimental and jazz community “for a marathon fundraiser concert/dance party.” Though the event is free, attendees are asked to make donations to “institutions that uphold America’s democracy and diversity,” which include the ACLU, LAMBDA Legal, Planned Parenthood, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Free event, 5-7pm
Reserve a spot at the Poets House for DAY ONE: A Poetry Reading and Open Mic. The event will “feature socially-engaged poets and then open the mic to folks who need to be heard” as a way to “collectively process and map out the next four years.”
Free event, 11am-5pm
The historic United Palace is holding an all-day “citizen-wide gathering designed to unite, uplift and inspire.” Titled “Inaugurate Love: Dreaming Our Nation United,” the day’s programming includes group meditation, indigenous ceremonies, sound healing, drumming circles, spoken word, short-play readings, poetry, dance, live art, vocalists and instrumentalists, and performances by Ellen Burstyn, Gary Jules and Leah Siegel.
Free event, 11am-6pm
For seven hours, the Brooklyn Museum will hold a marathon reading of Langston Hughes’s 1935 poem “Let America Be America Again,” hoping the museum becomes “a source of inspiration, reflection, community building, wonder, and magic.”
Free event, 12-2pm
Though the museum will close as part of the J20 strike, they will open for two hours for a workshop where those attending Saturday’s marches can make signs, buttons, and t-shirts. The materials are all free, and specific workshops include silkscreen and risograph printing.
Free event, 6-8pm
The Bronx Museum is hosting an art-making happy hour with local artist Dennis Redmoon Darkeem. He’ll lead participants in painting and collaging based on his project New Understandings, which is inspired by reflections on the new year. Admission is free, but beer and wine is $5.
Several NYC museums have decided to remain open as normal (meaning no free admission). These include:
- MoMA and MoMA PS1
- The Jewish Museum
- The Guggenheim: “We believe that museums can and should be a place of reflection and inspiration for all people, and we hope that our visitors will find welcome in a place where they can feel included in a great common cause—art and its transformative effects,” said the museum in a statement.
- The Studio Museum in Harlem: “We believe passionately that the radical voices of artists are essential to our democracy. We invite our friends, neighbors and families, whose bright spirits have the power to illuminate our future, to join us on January 20 and every day.”
For those locales that have chosen to close, the J20 Art Strike wants to be clear that it’s not “a strike against art, theater or any other cultural form,” but rather “an invitation to motivate these activities anew, to reimagine these spaces as places where resistant forms of thinking, seeing, feeling and acting can be produced.”A couple weeks ago, a long list of artists, including Cindy Sherman and Richard Serra, started a petition calling for cultural ...

As the U.S. goes collectively nuts over the possibility of alleged Russian hacking and its effects on the election, the Washington Post tells of at least one cybersecurity expert devoted to exposing the very real threat of cyberattack by “an insidious bushy-tailed foe.” We’re reminded that in 1987, a squirrel nibbled Nasdaq’s computer center (literally) into the black for 90 minutes, upending 20 million trades.
— CyberSquirrel (@CyberSquirrel1) September 29, 2016
The recent government investigation into the Russian hacking threat–reportedly almost two of every three Americans and eight of ten Democrats believe that the election was affected by it according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll–has reawakened the common doomsday scenario; Former National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command chief Keith Alexander cautioned last fall: “Practically speaking, an adversary is going to go after our civilian infrastructure first.”
Cybersecurity expert Cris Thomas (also known as @CyberSquirrel1) has been tracking and mapping reports of “cyberwar operations” by four-legged cyberterrorists since 2013. But the problem isn’t limited to squirrels. Thomas’s running lists expose other animal saboteurs–like a power outage set in motion by “caterpillars, lots of them.”
Thomas said at an annual East Coast hacker convention this week, “If these numbers are accurate, squirrels just aren’t winning the cyberwar, they’re crushing it,” in his signature speech titled “35 Years of Cyberwar: The Squirrels are Winning.”
Thomas told The Post that although “we need to tone it down a little bit” regarding the hacking hype, some resources should be devoted to the infrastructure weaknesses exposed by scampering cyberattackers.

When he penned an essay about his neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights in 1959, it was this wood-frame house at 13 Pineapple Street that inspired Truman Capote. “Cheerfully austere, as elegant and other-era as formal calling cards, these houses bespeak an age of able servants and solid fireside ease; of horses in musical harness,” he wrote, referencing the 1830 Federal-era home that was around the corner from his personal house. The Wall Street Journal reports that, for the past 26 years, the residence has been preserved by a couple who were drawn to its grey shingles as a reminder of the old houses in Nantucket they love. But now that their children are grown, they’re looking to downsize and have listed the storied property for $10.5 million.
One of the oldest structures in Brooklyn, the house is 50 feet wide, 4,000 square feet, and has seven bedrooms, a double-width garden, and an attached garage. All four levels feature the classic center hall.
The parlor and dining room both have large, south-facing windows and original period mantels. The living room also have full-height windows overlooking the garden and a wood-burning fireplace.
The kitchen has been modernized and features a lovely bay window surrounding a breakfast nook. On the floor below, there’s a large den/rec room, as well as a guest bedroom, full bath, laundry room, and wine closet. There are five bedrooms on the upper levels, plus a study and dressing room.
As the Journal notes, the essay written for Holiday magazine has become a sort of “rallying cry for generations of Brooklyn gentrifiers,” as it begins with “I live in Brooklyn. By choice.” It was later reprinted as a book called “A House on the Heights,” and it provides a history of the neighborhood, the story of why he chose to live there and descriptions of his favorite places. He talks about the Pineapple Street house further:
I’m not much acquainted with the proper history of the Heights. However, I believe (but please don’t trust me), that the oldest house, the house still extant and functioning, belongs to our back-yard neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Broughton. A silvery gray, single-wood Colonial shielded by trees robustly leafed, it was built in 1790, the home of a sea captain.
He also talks about his home at 70 Willow Street, where he wrote “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “In Cold Blood.” This home is the most expensive home ever sold in Brooklyn to date; it sold for $12 million in 2012.
The photo pictured on the book cover above shows Capote on a rear porch on Willow Street with 13 Pineapple Street in the background. Photographer David Attie took this and many other pictures of the author for the original Holiday magazine piece, but they never ran. They’re now part of an exhibition at the Brooklyn Historical Society.
On a more contemporary note, the current homeowners, retired lawyers Henry and Karoly Gutman, plan to relocate to the nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park development Pierhouse.

On the ninth floor of Stewart Hall at 10 Mitchell Place, this sunny one-bedroom co-op definitely says “home” more than “investment property.” Maybe it’s pre-war details like an original mantlepiece, beamed ceilings and hardwood floors, or maybe it’s the wood-burning fireplace, many closets and open sky views, or the almost-secret storybook Manhattan enclave near the East River and elegant Beekman Place. Given the apartment’s size, layout and location, the ask is definitely welcoming at $495,000.
Through an entry foyer, the main living space boasts deliciously dark wood floors, high beamed ceilings and a crackling fire. The listing says there’s a kitchen that “could excel with updating,” and we believe it, especially since it’s not shown.
The bedroom is spacious and bright, with room enough for a full suite of furniture. And about those closets: An alternate floor plan (see it in the gallery below) suggests an enormous closed dressing room–or a fittingly cozy home office–with just a few changes.
Built in 1926, Stewart Hall is situated in a quiet East Side enclave off 49th Street near the United Nations and Beekman Place. The building still retains its beautifully paneled lobby and offers classic old-school amenities like a full-time doorman, live-in super, laundry and a roof deck with staggering East River and Chrysler Building views.

The Houston Street 1 station is #cronut; the PATH train’s World Trade Center station is #neverforget; and the Cathedral Parkway/110th Street station is #Seinfeld. This is the NYC subway map according to each stop’s most popular Instagram hashtag. CityLab first shared the fun visualization, titled #tagsandthecity, and pointed out that, though the map has categories for sightseeing/monuments, shopping, leisure, culture/museums, and hotel/travel, it’s the food and drink that really takes the cake. From #redrooster and #robertas to #shakeshack and #halalguys, it seems New Yorkers really like to post some food porn.
In addition to New York, creator Jug Cerović, a Parisian architect and map designer, made maps for Berlin, Paris, London, and the San Francisco Bay area. They also come printed on wall decor, phone cases, pillows, mugs, and more.
For each city, the design team chose the 100 most popular stations and renamed them with the Instagram hashtag used most in their proximity, though they did use a bit of creative license when the hashtag was simply the station name or neighborhood. The data is from 2014, which explains why certain names like #hedwig don’t quite line up with the current trends. Unfortunately, Instagram now restricts its data, so the team won’t be able to update the map. But you can explore the full version here>>

In New York City’s interior landscape of neutral hues and fifty shades of white, it’s rare to see bright colors, especially in a classic pre-war co-op on the Upper East Side. But the current residents of this apartment at 129 East 69th Street, who undertook a two-year renovation, clearly favored the brighter side of the crayon box. The best thing about it is that with eight spacious rooms, colors, patterns and fun decorating ideas never have to clash.
After entering through an antique mirror-flanked foyer, you can see that lime is key in the south-facing living room. You’ll also find 10-foot ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace.
Hand-stenciled grass cloth lines the walls of the spacious dining room, though we’ll assume you’ll need to supply your own statement chandelier.
Thank Ralph Lauren for the brass lighting in the library/den; we think he’d like the denim-hued walls, too. The bright eat-in corner kitchen is suitably white, though funky mid-century patterned blinds keep things interesting. Lots of windows and top-of-the-line appliances from Miele, Sub-Zero and Wolf check off all the boxes.
There are three bedrooms and two full baths in this private and cozy wing of the apartment. In two of them we find a patriotic pattern party happening, with lots of bright colors to make a morning alarm clock almost unnecessary; sparkly Jonathan Adler light fixtures sit in for sunshine and stars.
A corner master suite is anchored by a more sedate seafoam; open views are a bonus, and lots of closet and storage space are a perk of living in a gracious pre-war apartment. All bathrooms offer radiant heated floors.
The home office gets down to business in serious greys, with custom built-ins and a full bath to make workdays easier. Added to the home’s classic pre-war proportions are thoroughly 21st-century comforts like six zones of air-conditioning, nine zones of Sonos-controlled sound and a full-size vented washer and dryer.
The full-service pre-war cooperative is a quiet overachiever, with a live-in super and fitness and bike rooms at the ready.
