Historic Photos From the NYC Municipal Archives - In Focus - The Atlantic
The New York City Municipal Archives just released a database of over 870,000 photos from its collection of more than 2.2 million images of New York throughout the 20th century. Their subjects include daily life, construction, crime, city business, aerial photographs, and more. I spent hours lost in these amazing photos, and gathered this group together to give you just a glimpse of what's been made available from this remarkable collection. [53 photos]

Brooklyn's Return | The Awl
But this was not always the case, there in Brooklyn. There was a time in between these two times when the crime rose and the neighborhoods unsettled. There was a time when all Brooklyn had going for it was the opening credits of "Welcome Back Kotter", when it was living not only in the shadow of Manhattan, but also of its former glories, and this time stretched right up to the turn of the century.

Can It Be Done? Midtown on a Budget - NYTimes.com
The best way to save money in Midtown is to spend more time downtown — advice many a New Yorker has foisted upon visiting friends. But I spend enough time in other people’s cities to know that certain zones get tagged as tourist traps for a reason: they have attractions worth seeing. Such is the case in the heart of Manhattan.

A Year in New York on Vimeo
Living in New York I'd grab my Canon 7D, or S95, and shoot footage of what was going on around me. It seemed like a never ending project and you could stay filming life in New York for a long time. But eventually I put my camera down and started to edit. Here's the end result, it's a bit rough and ready but that's life in the Big Apple I guess.

Indeed, while the rest of the city anxiously watches unemployment hover just below a demoralizing 9 percent and Wall Street braces for more layoffs, developers are complaining about being spammed with too many job offers on LinkedIn. The best recruiters know how to catch an engineer’s attention. Working in their favor is the fact that at the top of the market, salaries for chief technical officers and VPs of engineering are the most competitive they’ve been in years.

First NY Times restaurant review, circa 1859?
I'm not well versed in the history of food criticism, but I believe this is perhaps the first restaurant review to appear in the Times and that the unnamed gentleman who wrote it (the byline is "by the Strong-Minded Reporter of the Times") is the progenitor of the paper's later reviewers like Ruth Reichl, Mimi Sheraton, and Frank Bruni.

Chow time: Mimi Sheraton and Andre Soltner on what's changed since Lutece | Capital New York
Sheraton, who is working on a book-length food glossary and still writes regularly for magazines, was more critical of the current state of food writing. The Times, she said, focuses too much on trends. “Pie is the new donut, or pie is the new cupcakes,” she said, “and the truck thing, I don’t know how long that’ll last. I don’t know where they eat it, that’s what I can’t figure out about a truck. Where the hell do you eat it?”

Grand Central gets grander, Penn Station stays penal: that is a rule of New York City. Like the Yankees and Mets, Park Avenue and Bowery, our commuter-rail hubs’ relative positions seem as fixed as those of celestial bodies. One has grand staircases modeled after the Paris Opera House. The other has some escalators. In one, they sell lump crabmeat and artichokes. In the other, popcorn and beer.

Scocca : New York City Is Not a Nazi Death Camp
If Charles Krauthammer and Newt Gingrich think there is any comparison between what happened at Auschwitz and what happened at Ground Zero, then they are Holocaust deniers. Build 400 sets of Twin Towers, force an entire population into them at gunpoint, and then crash 800 airplanes into them—airplane after airplane, loaded with women and children, with the goal of exterminating their entire race—and you might begin to have something like Auschwitz.

Map of New York City Police Stops - Interactive Feature - NYTimes.com
New York City’s police force, in its fight against crime, has increasingly used a strategy known as “stop, question and frisk,” which allows officers to stop someone based on a reasonable suspicion of crime. One expert has estimated New Yorkers are stopped at twice the national rate. The impact on crime is much debated, and critics contend disproportionate stopping of minorities is a result of racial profiling, which police officials dispute.

Fourth, there is the New York of the man or woman who was born somewhere else and came to New York never intending to stay. Of these four incomparable cities, it may be the fourth that is the most unflappable, the most infallible, the most loyal. You see it is she who has understood love of a city, of its natives, and its commuters, of its messy seams and its buttoned-up asphalt, of its uptown arts and its devoted downtown. And she’s been spat on and praised, she’s been carried home, and cheered on. It is she, who embraces the city, knowing she had a choice otherwise. Yet her goal is to make this her home.

It’s perhaps what you’d expect from The WSJ: a respectable, sometimes boring take on New York City. At times over the first two days, it felt as if the section were written and edited by outsiders, intended to be dropped off outside your hotel room in Times Square. Rats uptown! Shootings in Harlem! Crazy-expensive apartments on the Upper West Side! This sensibility was capped off by an absurd graphic in the first issue telling us how to use a MetroCard.
