Poland-born, NYC based designer Karolina Zmarlak has a penchant for beautiful, high quality Japanese textiles; which is probably why, when she saw Amaike's "Superorganza" qualities, she new exactly what to do with them. Her first capsule collection with these types of fabric debuted this past Thursday at Flying Solo's new location at 434 W Broadway.

This past Wednesday we celebrated the Solstice, which marks the beginning of a short season of days filled with sunshine and free outdoor activities that take place throughout New York City. It's one of our favorite days of the year, and we were sure to start it right for the third year in a row with a few sun salutations:

Later that afternoon, our friends at The Cast down on Orchard Street hosted their annual block party. 7 bands performed, including The Trash Bags, The Cameramen, and Night Street Saints!

Over the past 35 years, Coney Island has had its fair share of ups and downs; the one thing that has remained steadfast is the artist community's dedication to putting together the annual Mermaid Day Parade. Beginning in 1983, the Saturday in June closest to the summer solstice on June 21st marked a day when creatives dress as mythical sea (and sometimes land) creatures and strut their stuff down Surf Avenue. Think Halloween in Summer, except instead of candy it's corn dogs and beer. Here are some of the 2017 highlights!

You don’t have to wander very far to enjoy a bit of nature in NYC; the 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in Dumbo reminds us that trees sure do grow in Brooklyn. With plants hanging from the lobby ceiling, floors made from recycled wood, and a mini forest in its backyard, it’s the perfect retreat.

Last night we had the pleasure of seeing Miami-based Brothers of Others with our good friend Shin from Forty Five. They performed classic covers from the likes of The Beatles and U2 as well as originals. Check them out on Spotify!
