She Said Yes! Erica & Jordan’s Engagment


Here’s a fun story. A recent client asked me to shoot his surprise proposal on the ice. He would be flying into New York with his girlfriend on a weekend getaway with plans of popping the question at the Rockefeller Center skating rink. Awesome right? I’ll get to the details in a moment, but first a fun little back-story of how the gentleman from Canada came to procure my services:

The Tenth Annual No-Pants Subway Ride: 2012 Edition

So you’re done with the excessive holiday eating? What better way to strut your new-found pounds than with the annual No-Pants Subway Ride. What originally began as a 7-person prank has now evolved into an internationally observed day of silliness. More than 4,000 people took their trousers off yesterday in New York City’s subways, and thousands more reportedly joined in around the world. Improv Everywhere organizes the annual event, where the sexy strap-hangers begin their train rides all over the city and then converge onto Union Square Park for an impromptu celebration of sorts.

Fashion Week Man-Stuff Preview: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Convertible

Just in case you forget who puts all this Fashion Week hoopla together, Mercedes-Benz kindly reminds you as soon as you enter the lobby with this stunning SLS AMG Convertible. This panty-dropping beast features Mercedes’ 6.3 liter engine which produces a disgusting 518hp and 465ft-lbs of torque. Mercedes claims this is the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine to date. But with looks like this, do you really care? Do you really need the 5.5 liter Turbo, or [God forbid] the 6.0 liter V12 bi-turbo? Well, depending on how short/fat/bald/old/Alpha/small-penis you are, you may want to consider the latter, with a tarmac-defacing 604hp/738lb-ft. Continue reading »

Fashion Week: JSong Way

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is upon us and we’re kicking off the festivities with some images from yesterday’s action.

Way Zen started her JSong Way line over twenty years ago. She took a trip to the orient and quickly fell in love with the rich embroidery artisans were producing. Zen has since been producing rich, hand-crafted articles that drape a woman’s body very elegantly. JSong Way focuses on details. By using unique craft patters that eliminate visible seams when working with textures, an aesthetic balance is achieved in every individual design. Gallery after the break: Continue reading »

An Empty Highway In New York City

It’s kind of a rare sight to see the a New York City expressway completely devoid of traffic. It’s almost eerie in fact. You’d expect this scene in a post-apocalyptic Hollywood movie like I Am Legend or Escape From New York, but to see it with you own eyes is something else. This was the scene a couple of weeks ago in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on the I-278 (better known to us New Yorkers as the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway). Normally, around rush hour, this northbound section is one of the most congested in the whole city. So what scared all the cars away? Continue reading »

Delicious Indian, Right Next Door

A big part of being a good host/tour guide in the Big Apple involves introducing out-of-towners to some good food. New York has every cuisine under the sun, and we do most (if not all) of them well. When my mother came to visit last month from Greece, I felt it was my Gotham duty to take her to as many exotic eateries as possible. We were tackling Asian culinary arts during week two, so we had to check out Seva in Astoria for some of the best Indian food in the outer boroughs. Continue reading »
