You walk down the subway stairs and your train arrives. When a cab pulls up before you’ve even stuck your arm up all the way. No line at Trader Joe’s. Seeing a show at UCB and Tina Fey is a surprise guest. Seeing a show at Comedy Cellar and Louis CK just shows up. When you jaywalk and don’t […]

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade tips

Last Wednesday the bleachers appeared at the south-west corner Central Park. This Thursday New York’s biggest parade hits the streets. A tradition throughout the country, most Americans watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV. If spending the holiday in NYC, you have the rare opportunity to watch it from the cold curb of the city […]


Do you have 20/20 vision? Yes? Fuck you. (I’m just jealous!) No? Cool, Four Eyes unite! I’ve been wearing glasses since tenth grade. Every year I let my prescription expire and haul myself to LensCrafters after I’ve worn my last pair of contacts twice as long as I’m supposed to. Let’s call it a tradition. […]

It’s the little things, guys. From now through December 8th at the Shops at Columbus Circle I couldn’t mean that more literally. If you love adorable tiny things, if you have an appreciation of mind-boggling craftsmanship, if you want to satisfy voyeuristic tendencies without any creepiness, run don’t walk to 59th and Broadway. There you will […]


I’ve been feeling kinda down lately. In a what-the-hell-is-wrong-with-me-I’m-such-a-loser kind of way. Ugh. When I’m feeling blue I like to watch the sky turn from blue to brilliant. Can I turn like that too, please? Watching the sun set is easily the fastest way to remember how much beauty there is in this world. Want to watch […]


I’m great at planning dates. “Toot, toot!” goes my own horn. I have a blog that’s largely about New York events and dating! Of course I’m great at planning dates! Duh! Now just because I’m great at it doesn’t mean I want to plan them all. Dude, if you are the one asking me out, you’re […]


I’m passionate about New York City, art, and recycling. Yeah, I know that last one is a little weird but if you’ve ever been to San Francisco, my hometown, you understand. On a walk on Manhattan’s southern tip last weekend, I stumbled upon the trifecta of these passions. There’s a public art exhibit in Battery Park against […]


It was the week before Halloween and I was walking home from a date in the West Village. It was a beautiful autumn night, leaves crunched with our every step, and a full moon shown above the tree-lined Perry Street. A picture perfect New York night. I’d squealed, “Look at the moon!” the minute we stepped […]

11/11 A time for wishes, a day for weddings, a date pleasing to the eyes of the OCD. Veteran’s Day. That’s what Americans typically associate with yesterday’s date. Half way across the world the date 11/11 is something else entirely. Millions of people in China celebrate 11/11 as Singles Day, or “Guanggun Jie” if you speak Chinese. […]


It’s an exciting day for me. One of my favorite bloggers, Jessie Rosen of 20-Nothings is guest posting on New York Cliché. 20-Nothings was one of the first blogs I ever read. It will always hold a special place in my heart as it’s the first blog I ever read and though This. This is what […]
