This Powerful Video Shows What It Takes To Follow Your Dreams In NYC Everyone has a different definition of success, but here in New York City, sometimes just getting through the damn day can feel like an incredible achievement. On a fundamental level, you're "making it" here as long as you're still up and active, still doing the work, even if nobody sees it. You should feel proud you're still hacking away at it (whatever it is!) in the face of all of New York's abrasiveness. Like when you're just trying to practice your trumpet in some corner somewhere and the world's angriest NYU Film School graduate makes it his mission to crush your dreams into dust, SUCKA. [ more › ]

D Train Riders Trapped Inside Multiple Stalled Trains For Hours If you took the subway this morning you probably experienced an appalling and inexplicable commuting mess on at least one train line.

1. This is why we need network connectivity on NYC train cars. People tweeting about being stuck on a train for an hour WILL get the attention of the media.
2. Can't one use the MTA API to automatically tell if a train is stalled between stations? Why isn't there an automated twitter feed reporting stalled trains yet?

Pamela Adlon tweeted, "I had been a working actor for years. Jobs stopped, as they do. I worked in retail. At a flower shop. I passed out flyers. It’s about the work.

Good honest work is nothing to be ashamed of." Now Owens himself is talking about it. [ more › ]

MTA Adds Aretha Franklin 'Respect' Tributes To Franklin Avenue & Franklin Street Subway Stations Last month after Aretha Franklin died, tributes to the Queen of Soul popped up throughout the city, particularly at the two subway stations in Manhattan and Brooklyn which shared her last name.
