Vanishing New York

The Daily Beast recently published an article about one man’s blog, Jerimiah’s Vanishing New York,, which chronicles the disappearance of small stores and local restaurants from New York’s streets and neighborhoods due to extreme hikes in rent.

Scrolling through the blog made me so sad as I read multiple stories of many local businesses with long histories being shut down. Despite the sadness, it’s incredibly interesting and worth taking a look.

Read the full article and interview with the author with the Daily Beast here.

Bike Art

As a planner you talk a lot about biking, bike safety, creating more bike lanes, etc. I came upon some bike artwork that used bikes to create art. It seemed very planner appropriate!

Artist Thomas Yang used 7 different types of bicycle tires to create this image of the Empire State Building in NYC. Very cool!
