One of the best things about NYC is that you can have everything and anything delivered… now including crack candy thanks to Candy Crack Delivery Service. The crack candy (basically brightly colored rock candy) comes in 4 different flavors including blueberry, cotton candy, lime and original (sugar) and is delivered in 1 x 1 baggies for $1 a bag. I’m not sure which is creepier, the concept or the dude who actually delivers it… a 7-foot tall man in white gloves, a tuxedo, and a plush blue fish head.
The service is the brainchild of Nate Hill (the self-proclaimed “greatest artist of all time”), the creative director of Club Animals. He and his cohorts specialize in other original projects such as “Free Bouncy Rides“- where a person in a fish costume hangs out on a subway platform and offers his/her leg to bounce upon, and the “Mini Marathon” where several people dressed as animals run four laps around Union Square.
- Candy Crack Delivery Service – available on August 22nd, in the Greenpoint and Williamsburg areas of Brooklyn only
- Free Bouncy Rides – offered this Saturday, August 14th, from 10-11pm on the Union Square L train platform.
I LOVE NEW YORK CITY!!!
The creative developers behind Macro | Sea are breathing new life into Brooklyn’s urban landscape by transforming retired dumpsters into public swimming pools! Construction Chic! And what’s even cooler? … the company’s mission statement: Macro | Sea is a company created to do projects that we find interesting.
I want a dog. Even though I promised myself that for my 30th birthday I would be the proud mama to one — I am left with 2 weeks to go and no hope in site. However, it seems I have options should I move back to NYC. I present you with Plastic Bag Animals… aka City Pets!
There is a street artist who’s been making these animals out of discarded plastic bags. The plastic bag animals are then tied to the ventilation grates above the subway lines so that when the subway rushes through underneath, the animal jumps up and springs to life.
Up! Goooooooood Dog!
Something that might sweeten the deal of living so far from the subway… Ko, a new restaurant in NYC’s East Village. It has only 14 seats and accepts reservations online exclusively through their Web site no more than one week in advance. Reservations are taken on a first come first serve basis and can be made for 1, 2 or 4 people only.
Is it any good? I don’t know but the following disclaimer makes me want to find out…
If you are like me, you get “Camera Face” when you pose for a photo. Either I get super toothy which spreads smile lines all up my checks like an old lady or I look at the camera straight on which makes my face look double-wide. End result = not pretty.
The solution to looking all sorts of fierce in photos is a MethodIzaz (aka personal stalker).
After giving details of your daily schedule, Brooklyn photographer Izaz Rony will secretly follow you around and capture candid moments of your daily life. You can even specify what emotions you want him to capture.
Pretty cool… unless he catches you picking something out of your teeth after lunch.
