The state said that insurance companies could not exclude renters from a car owner’s policy — something RelayRides promised in a…
An anonymous, free-thinking artist has been hard at work piecing together this project on DiCaprio. Posting under the Instagram handle “mydaywithleo,” someone placed photos of the young star all around NYC and photographed the results. Racking up nearly 80 photos to date, this project has clearly taken a lot of time and effort. On the [...]

Is Google Glass really “killing cities” or just the douchebags who wear them? Are mines bringing cities down—literally? Is the Bowery doomed? Is Berlin really over? We examine these questions and more, in this week’s edition of What’s Ruining Our Cities.

Created with tiles by the Spanish father-and-son duo, Rafael Guastavino and his junior namesake, these structures were also marvels of artistic engineering, combining intricate brickwork with functional arrays of vaults and pillars, all leading to a kind of Mediterranean dreamworld of colonnades “hidden in plain sight,” as a new exhibition suggests, around the city.
Some startups are simply more ambitious than others. DigitalOcean is one of them. Far from the triviality of a “box of the month” club or a celebrity-endorsed mobile game, the two-and-a-half-year-old New York-based company is tackling one of the most challenging and incumbent-dominated categories anywhere: infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

Driving in any urban area can be hectic, and nowhere is this more true than in New York City. Between congestion, construction and crazy pedestriants/cyclists, driving a vehicle is usually a choppy affair.

It was 4:30 am and Peter Shankman was two miles into a 10-mile run with jogging partner David Roher in Central Park. What should have been an exhilarating early bird workout devolved into a disappointing run-in with the NYPD. To their shock, Shankman and Roher were stopped by a city cop and handed summonses.
