Meet Harlem’s ‘Official’ Street Photographer

Khalik Allah, a 29-year-old filmmaker and photographer who documents the streets of Harlem at night, has been photographing the corner of 125th and Lexington since 2012; armed with little more than a manual camera and a few rolls of film.

Street photography can often be a daunting or awkward experience – especially when you’re trying to photograph people who might be skeptical of what you are doing and why. However, for this street artist, photography is an immersive experience where he has built hundreds of relationships with members of the community.

One of the methods Allah uses to gain access to the lives of so many people is to show them a book of his past photographs, a technique learned from one of his influencers, photographer Bruce Davidson.

Grand Central Terminals Pre-Restoration Ceiling Tile
Look carefully at the northwest corner for a small dark square. The spot was kept as a reminder of how dirty the ceiling was before the massive cleaning that took place here in the ’90s—the entire ceiling was covered in the same dark layer from commuters’ cigarette smoke.

The app Untappd is coming up on four years of helping their users “drink socially,” sharing what beers they drink with friends or just keeping track of what they’re drinking for their own reference. With four years of use comes lots of data about New York’s beer scene. So we wondered: where are Untappd users drinking the most in New York?

Brooklyn’s brewing boom continues. This fall, the borough will welcome its third new brewery this year, Threes Brewing (333 Douglass St., at 4th Ave., Gowanus). The booming space will be part brewpub, part coffee shop, part event space, and part production brewery — a big draw to what’s already an active craft beer scene in the area. Former Greenport Harbor brewer Greg Doroski was wooed by the partners in the project, and moved his family back to Brooklyn to take on the project of crafting Threes’ beers, which will be served once construction is complete in October.

10 Bars With The Best Jukeboxes in Williamsburg
Some nights are meant for bars with hushed interiors, where the music plays at a level that you can still speak over. Other nights are meant for a little more control. Enter the jukebox, a bar’s worst enemy or best friend, depending on who’s pulling the strings. Commandeering a jukebox at a bar takes a certain skill. You have to be able to read the room and to have enough confidence to know that whatever jams you’re about to put on aren’t going to ruin the night for you, your friends or the other patrons who really, really don’t want to hear any more Creedence Clearwater Revival, no matter how much you love it. Take heed, amateur DJs, and head to any of these bars, located in the bustling, undiscovered(sarcasm. Get it?) neighborhood of Williamsburg and impress the crowds with your musical prowess.
(Continue Reading)
Out of all those listed, I have to lean heavily towards The Second Chance Saloon, Mostly because my buddy owns the place so I’m a bit biased. I’m glad to see it make it on one of these list thingies. And while we’re on the subject, The same person also owns The Grand Bar & Grill just down the same street. Great food, I Highly recommend a visit if you’re in the area.
