1. Be it postcards, movies, commercials, or any other Big Apple advertisement, the Empire State Building is New York City. A 1,250-foot, 103-story tower of magnificence in the middle of Midtown, stacked with 1,200 LED light fixtures, each capable of producing 256 colors and infinite possibilities. And Marc Brickman has this immaculate canvas of light at his disposal. It’s his job to keep it lit, and us in awe.

  2. The average nationwide percentage of income spent on rent is now the highest it’s been in 30 years. Unaffordable rents aren’t just a New York problem anymore.

  9. The following is an email thread between Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Or something like that.


    SUBJECT: Lunch?

    DATE: 02/20/13

    Hey Vlad,

    Dmitry here. Want to get lunch sometime soon for old time’s sake? I know you’ve been busy with Sochi and all - I saw the coverage; really looked like a great time! But I would love to catch up now that the games are over to talk about a few things on the horizon. I heard about this great, new place in Red Square that we apparently have to try. Maybe we can grab a pint or two after, too. Remember our lunches when I was President? When you insisted to pay every time because you told me “I am the hand that feeds” ? Ha, those were the days.

    Let me know whenever. Excited to hear about Sochi!

    Best,

    DM
