New York's vanishing shops and storefronts: 'It's not Amazon, it's rent' | Business | The Guardian
“It’s not Amazon, it’s rent,” says Jeremiah Moss, author of the website and book Vanishing New York. “Over the decades, small businesses weathered the New York of the 70s with it near-bankruptcy and high crime. Businesses could survive the internet, but they need a reasonable rent to do that.”

Part of the problem is the changing make-up of New York landlords. Many are no longer mom-and-pop operations, but institutional investors and hedge funds that are unwilling to drop rents to match retail conditions. “They are running small businesses out of the city and replacing them with chain stores and temporary luxury businesses,” says Moss.

Mourning the Low-Rent, Weirdo-Filled East Village of Old
Recently, one of my upstairs neighbors dusted off his old piano. In the evenings, when I return from work, I hear him playing overhead as I climb the stairs. I pause outside my door, listening, keys in hand, as he struggles through a Bach concerto. These days, it’s Number 5 in F Minor, a sad and lovely piece that, for a few minutes, reminds me of why I stay—in this neighborhood and in this town. E. B. White wrote, “On any person who desires such queer prizes, New York will bestow the gift of loneliness and the gift of privacy,” blending it “with the excitement of participation.” In this nightly scene, my neighbor is alone at his piano and I am alone at my door. Yet, in our private worlds, we are connected, participating in this moment together. It’s these two seemingly opposite states—alone and connected—that hold me. Even in the howling crowds, as the city crumbles and dies all around us, now and then, here and there, if we’re paying close attention, we can still find pleasure in the gifts of New York. It’s just a hell of a lot harder than it used to be.

Taxi Medallion Prices Are Plummeting, Endangering Loans - Bloomberg
There's a good reason your cab driver is so cranky: His livelihood might be teetering on the edge of default. According to a recent presentation prepared for Capital One Financial Corp. investors, some 81 percent of its $690 million in loans for taxi medallions are at risk of default.

Medallions, the small metal shields affixed to the hoods of taxi cabs, are issued by the local taxi authority and effectively allow the cabs to operate legally. Owning one used to be akin to owning a gas-guzzling, money-printing machine. Medallions in New York City traded at more than $1 million in 2014, but today's prices are about half of that.

Verizon Ends Its Era of Phone Books In New York - Fortune
With all of the technology we have today, finding a phone book on your door step seems like quite the anachronism. Apparently Verizon, New York State’s largest telephone company, thought so, too.

The New York State Public Service Commission has reportedly granted Verizon VZ 0.16% and its directory publisher permission to stop printing and delivering business telephone books to its customers, according to WWNY-TV, a Fox affiliate that serves Northern New York and Southeast Ontario. The news comes after New York gave permission to Verizon in 2010 to stop delivering phone books to residential listings.

How Kellogg's Killed The Breakfast Cereal Trend
Kellogg’s New York isn’t just an attempt at milking free PR from what is essentially an advertisement with a five-year lease. (Although, since the cafe has been covered by everyone from the New York Times to Al Arabiya it has certainly delivered on that front.) Rather it is a reaction to a major sales decline. Over the last decade cereal has lost its hallowed place at the breakfast table as healthier, more convenient, morning food options grow in popularity – particularly among younger generations. According to Mintel, nearly 40% of millennials think cereal is inconvenient for breakfast because it requires too much cleanup. That whole washing a bowl in the morning thing? The struggle is ce-real. (Sorry.)

Swiss Fintech Report 2016: The role of Switzerland as a fintech hub
This report thus looks at Switzerland as one of the main global financial centers, and its evolution in response to recent changes, such as the introduction of automatic information exchange. Furthermore, the report outlines the main criteria and reasons that speak in favor of starting ventures in Switzerland compared with the other financial centers, New York City, London and Singapore. The report is backed by several interviews we had the privilege to conduct with extraordinary entrepreneurs at different stages of their respective ventures, as well as one of the biggest reinsurance companies globally.

Overall, the report indicates that Switzerland is making good progress on the journey to become an excellent place to start a venture. Widely recognized for its excellent education and world-class universities, together with a deep knowledge in the field of financial services, Switzerland remains attractive despite the high cost of living and the corresponding high salaries needed to attract the right talent. When it comes to financing, Switzerland is facing some challenges despite being one of the richest countries in the world. Because of its location at the heart of Europe, pan-European business models are typically expected from the outset of a venture, which can prove a tough proposition depending on the circumstances. As a result, venture financing can sometimes be more difficult to find in Switzerland compared with other countries with large domestic markets that allow operations to be scaled up more easily.

Measuring the Street: New Metrics for 21st Century Streets
New York City’s streets are constantly called on to the meet new and varied needs of a growing, dynamic, 21st Century city – and to do this in a complex environment where there is little opportunity to expand the existing footprint. How do city leaders address these challenges and measure their success? This report discusses key approaches to street design projects, and how results can be measured against goals for safety, serving all users and creating great public spaces while also maintaining the flow of traffic. Using a cross-section of recent NYCDOT street design projects, this report details the metrics NYCDOT uses to evaluate street projects, and illustrates how measuring results can show progress toward safe, sustainable, livable and economically competitive streets.

Why Jersey City is the New Brooklyn | Newgeography.com
With a variety of lively, singular neighborhoods and close proximity to Manhattan, Jersey City already boasts several parallels with the borough of Brooklyn. Though it cannot yet compete in terms of culture and “street cred,” developers are rushing to construct tens of thousands of new, affordable residential properties, hopping on the newest fashionable real estate bandwagon while it is still hot. What this means is that it is certainly the right time to move to Jersey City. Housing prices are lower across the board than in most sections of Brooklyn—and certainly anything in Manhattan—and the options for condos, rental apartments and even entire houses are multiplying by the day. And people are starting to take notice. An increasing influx of residence—according to the most recent US census data, the total number of residents increased by six percent between 2010 and 2014— revitalizing the cultural and social scene, and many more people are expected to soon follow. With all of this in mind, it would not be a surprise if in the next few years we find fewer people moving to New York City altogether, and many more looking to the exciting reborn metropolis of Jersey City.

Saul Leiter | Saul Leiter | The Photographers' Gallery
It's only recently that Saul Leiter (1923-2013) has received due recognition for his pioneering role in the emergence of colour photography. He moved to New York intent on becoming a painter, yet ended up working for magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Elle and British Vogue and became known for his impressionistic colour street scenes.

As early as 1946, and thus well before representatives of the 1970s new colour photography school (such as William Eggleston and Stephen Shore), Leiter was using Kodachrome colour slide film for his free artistic shots, despite it being despised by artists of the day.

"When we do not know why the photographer has taken a picture and when we do not know why we are looking at it, all of a sudden we discover something that we start seeing. I like this confusion." Saul Leiter

Airbnb’s worst problems are confirmed by its own data | The Verge
But a review of the data by The Verge found that Airbnb's numbers, covering November of 2014 through November 1st of 2015, largely confirmed the attorney general's accusations. A small number of hosts renting out multiple listings took home a disproportionate amount of the total revenue. And while roughly 71 percent of hosts rented out their home for three months or less, there were still thousands of "whole units," meaning an entire house or apartment, which were rented for six months or more during the last year.

For example the number of hosts with three or more listings on the platform accounted for less than 2 percent of the total hosts on Airbnb in New York City during the time period covered by the data. Yet that group took home 24 percent of the total whole home revenue. And that only covers people who are openly renting multiple listings. The New York Times interviewed one Airbnb host who rented five units, but only one under his own name. He estimated his annual income from the platform at $500,000, far more than the $5,110 Airbnb highlighted as the median host income.

Where is the world's most polluted city? | Cities | The Guardian
UN organisation cannot compare or rank cities because many do not have the resources or political will to set up a monitoring system. Gary Fuller, an air pollution expert at Kings College, said continent-sized blank spots made it impossible to know where people were suffering the most.

“When we compare air pollution in cities, we only look at those with measurements,” he said. “This focuses our attention on big cities and the developed world. Initial attempts to measure air pollution from satellites have revealed more areas of the world with dense populations and high air pollution.”

Of the 1,622 cities covered in the WHO data, 510 are in two countries – the US and Canada. Just 16 are in Africa (half of these in relatively wealthy South Africa and Egypt). That’s 0.75% of the monitoring for 15% of the world’s population, an increasing number of whom live in high-risk cities. Latin America’s 604 million people are among the most heavily urbanised on earth. Their air is monitored in 109 cities. Across the Middle East, data is collected in just 24 cities.

“The idea of a discount luxury is an oxymoron. And it’s an oxymoron for a reason: because someone is bearing the cost of that discount. In nail salons it’s always the person doing your nails, my investigation found. That has put a new lens on the world for me.”
