The Best NYC Hotels With Rooftop And Indoor Pools
MAY
10
Summer is almost here, which means we're constantly daydreaming about taking a dip, or relaxing in a cabana near a calming pool. Some of the finest swimming spots can be found at New York City's myriad hotels, though they almost universally come with a caveat: they're open to guests only. But if you can make friends with someone staying at the Gansevoort or the William Vale—or if you have enough money to plan your own staycation—then you just might stand a chance. There are also some hotels that offer day passes for their swanky pools, or ones that are connected to adjacent rooftop bars—and thus, are sort of public. We've cataloged some of the best here, and noted where they're publicly accessible; if we missed your favorite (or a secret spot that you're willing to open up about), let us know in the comments.

Watch Björk’s New Shapeshifting Music Video For 'Tabula Rasa'
MAY
10
Iceland's foremost electronic music pioneer and former Mixmag cover star Björk has released a stunning music video for her track 'Tabula Rasa'. Co-produced by Arca, the haunting woodwind ballad appeared on her last album, 2017's 'Utopia'. The music video shows the Icelandic icon morphing into floral shapes and otherworldly figures with the help of some mind-boggling digital rendering. "When creating the video, I was deeply inspired by the music and lyrics of Tabula Rasa," says music video director Tobias Gremmler in a statement. "The visual transformation of Björk into faun-like flowers and mountainous landscapes embodies the utopian concept of a harmonious coexistence between nature and human based on empathy." The video comes following the debut of the artist's new stage concert, 'Cornucopia' - a live show which Björk has called "her most elaborate to date" that is currently housed in NYC's new Manhattan venue, The Shed.

Rezonings Transform NYC Neighborhoods
MAY
8
The city uses an environmental review process, known as the City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR), to predict how rezonings and other major land use actions will impact neighborhoods. It’s used to study changes to neighborhood character, the potential for residential displacement, and strains to existing infrastructure, as well as developing ways to mitigate those impacts. But that review process is not held accountable for ensuring those predictions are actually accurate, city officials said at a Tuesday City Council hearing. [MORE]

Uber And Lyft Drivers In NYC Plan Short Work Stoppage For May 8
MAY
8
Uber and Lyft drivers have voted to go on a brief strike on May 8, following the lead of drivers in other major cities, including Philadelphia, Chicago, and Washington D.C., the New York City Taxi Workers Alliance (NYTWA) announced in a statement on Friday. According to NYTWA, drivers will turn off their apps on Wednesday from 7 to 9 a.m. and will meet that afternoon for a rally at the Falchi Building, where both companies have driver hubs, in Long Island City. On the eve of Uber’s IPO, drivers will be asking the company’s leadership to provide job security by ending “unfair [app] deactivations”; livable incomes by eliminating “the scam of upfront pricing”; and regulating the fare by guaranteeing 80 to 85 percent of the fare goes to drivers. (Lyft went public earlier this year.) [MORE]

The Ultimate Guide To Manhattan’s High Line
MAY
7
Stretching 1.45 miles through the Meatpacking District and Chelsea along the west side of Manhattan, the High Line is one of New York’s newest—and most innovative—green spaces. The park is built along a now-defunct elevated railway; the original tracks are still visible along the path. Elevated 30 feet off the ground, the High Line weaves between buildings, offering vistas of the city and the Hudson River that are by turns dazzling and intimate. Here, you’ll find food and gift vendors, a seasonally changing array of public art, and year-round gardens inspired by the plants and grasses that once grew wild on the abandoned tracks. Whether you want to stroll above the city, lounge in the sun, or even stargaze through high-powered telescopes, heading up to the High Line makes for one of New York City’s most singular experiences. It can get crowded, particularly in the summer, but trust us: It’s worth limboing underneath a few selfie sticks for. [MORE]

Saying Goodbye To The Old New York Essex Street Market
MAY
3
Say goodbye to the old Essex Street Market: After this Sunday, May 5, the market’s longtime home on Essex Street between Delancey and Rivington streets will close as 21 of its vendors prepare for their move to a new building across the street. The market announced the closing date on its website. The move has been in the works for years, with a new Essex Street Market planned for the tower rising at 125 Delancey Street, which is also home to the recently opened Regal Cinemas movie theater, as well as close to 200 rentals. The new market will span 37,000 square feet—a huge increase in size from the current space—and will welcome 18 new restaurateurs and food purveyors, including Roni-Sue’s Chocolates (which previously set up shop in the old market) and a new stall from the folks behind Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. The new market is expected to open sometime in the next few weeks. [MORE]

If you tried (and, most likely, failed) to get past the legendary gatekeeper of the world's most famous nightclub, now's your chance to make nice with the man himself - while enjoying some of that international techno music you missed out on.
