All-Around Yummy: Iris Cafe in Brooklyn Heights

by Tracy Kaler

I held a glass of red wine by candlelight less than an hour after I walked out of my apartment on the Upper West Side. In the wake of traveling 40 minutes by subway, I entered a 19th century storefront on an unfamiliar street. I was inclined to pretend that I had escaped to a quaint Hudson Valley town for the evening. But I hadn't. I was still in town... I was in Brooklyn Heights. 

Girl Talk: 'Bucks for Bras' at Town Shop + Giveaway

Trade in old bras, purchase new ones and get cash back at Town Shop this month.

Time for some girl talk. But guys, take notes, because you can shop for the women if you life too. 

Certain things get better with age –– a fine wine, a quality leather handbag, and super-soft flannel sheets, to mention a few. One item that doesn't age well –– yet is an essential for every lady –– is a bra. In fact, the older a bra, the less elasticity and support you can expect. Cups stretch out and the underwire doesn't do its job like it once did.

Today I'm back for another interview. Thanks, Tracy, for agreeing to do these Q & A sessions.  As you know, I find New York to be fascinating, as well as the people living in it. So, let's chat again. Me, in my house in Nova Scotia. You, in your apartment on the Upper West Side.

My Four Year Milestone in New York City

by Lauren Malamala

I remember my first cab ride when I arrived in New York City.

I’ve never been the type of person to travel, let alone move somewhere without thoroughly researching my destination beforehand. So when I came to New York, few things took me by surprise. Still, there were certain aspects of NYC life that I had to figure out the hard way. In other words, I had to experience it personally in order to “get it."

Having celebrated my four-year anniversary in the city this month, I realized how much has changed since I arrived.

6 Ladies and A Gent: My Post-Valentine's/Pre-Oscar NYC Apartment Party

by Tracy Kaler

Besides the cold, February brings plenty of good things. New York Fashion Week takes center stage, and then there's Groundhog Day, President's Day (long weekend!), and Valentine's Day –– which is always an excuse to overindulge in chocolate. And for the past two Februarys, the Oscars happened this month (I confess. I was glued to my television for hours yesterday watching the pre-show and the E red carpet, and then last night for the awards ceremony.)
