  5. We Choose Love!

    We walked outside of Babesta Cribz to take this picture. Our Love parade to Brookfield, part of the Love Wins installation there for Pride Week and in the wake of what happened in Orlando. While we were outside, the lovely owner of ONE Art Space Dan Giella on 23 Warren Street saw us, introduced himself and explained the serendipity that had occurred.

  6. Modern Marvel - Danny Lyons Humanistic Photography

          Venture to the west side for a photo journalistic awakening. Danny Lyons; Message to the Future is a positively profound look back into history and into our future from multiple view points. As an activists and humanist Lyons skillfully captures the tone of prisons, civil rights protest to what he sees as the 'destruction' of lower Manhattan. The trek down memory lane is as much a history lesson as a study of human nature.

  8. After Show After Glow Hatsune Miku

    After Show After Glow: Hatsune Miku

    When I first heard about Hatsune Miku, I was super curious. A live concert for a hologram? With my daughter’s b-day (and she loves pop singing and manga drawing) I thought this was an offbeat shoe-in for a fun afternoon. She brought a friend and we all enjoyed our inaugural concert teasing the future of music. The room had an excited energy – there were definitely die hard fans (the street outside was bustling with excited concert goers camped out for the second show). Several girls were dressed up anime style - with ankle-long blue pigtails a la Miku’s signature style.

  9. Choosing the Best Double Stroller

    Choosing the best double stroller is two times the fun! (not really but we'll try to make it simple & non-stressful)! Today we're breaking down the double stroller options for mixed age kids (we'll cover twins in another post!)! We have hand chosen some great strollers, that we think really fit the city lifestyle well, judged on ease of use and flexibility, quality, multi-functionality, customer service and excellent wheels (an essential considering how city parents use their strollers!) First, you’ll determine if you’d rather stroll in-line or side by side. This is a very personal decision. Some of us would rather be longer and narrow, which means one child is closer and one farther from the parent. Others would rather be a bit wider and have kids side by side (don't worry, all side by sides we suggest make it through the door)! Double strollers are about compromise, and only you know what tradeoffs make sense for your lifestyle!
