If the world was condensed down to 100 people this is how things would breakdown. It’s pretty interesting when you look it at from a perspective that’s easier to grasp.

Only in NYC

This is why I love living in NYC. The audio on the video is kind of awful but you can get the gist of what’s going on. Every time the homeless guy starts to walk away the puppet keeps egging him on. What’s hilarious is that the homeless guy starts out…

The $18 million penthouse at the top of the Williamsburg Bank (now

The Williamsburg Bank building in Park Slope, Brooklyn was transformed into luxury condos a few years ago. This is the penthouse built at the very top right inside the clock tower with amazing views of downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Story

I'm not a businessman. I'm a business, man.
Introduction
I started blogging in 1999.  My blog gradually, organically grew into a political blog.  I began to attract a loyal group of readers and began monetizing my success as an early BlogAds adopter harnessing the site’s traffic to generate revenue. 

After 2004, I decided to take a bit of a break from the blogosphere.

I couldn’t stay away for long.  I was becoming more and more interested in New York media, Hollywood and finding an outlet for my hyperactive wit.  I created BlogNYC.net.  

Early on BlogNYC was rebranded into Metadish.com.

Metadish, along with the network of sites I created that were being managed by writers and editors that I had hired was eventually sold to National Lampoon Inc. 

Metadish was an unbelievable experience and I learned so many valuable lessons while building and establishing it.  Dealing with everyone from celebrities to CEOs is pretty exciting stuff. 

I am a blogger, new media strategist and a writer.  I am passionate about helping people connect, grow and become efficient and self-sufficient in this ever-growing new medium.

Your brand, your market is in your hands, not someone else’s.  No one will ever be able to market you better than you.  I just help you open the doors and show you the tools that allow you to do it.

Concept by Hamutzim.

I've used quite a few pharmacies around Brooklyn and this place is by far the best one I've used. They are polite and professional. They really do care about making sure the customer stays happy and satisfied. My doctor's office is maybe 15 minutes away and he emails my prescriptions in. From the very first time I went there my prescriptions were already filled and waiting for me when I got there. They took my insurance information after I got there, had it entered within five minutes and I was out of there. I'd give these guys six stars if Google would let me.

This place constantly over books their appointments. We had a 2:00 appt appointment and didn't even get called back until 3:45. The staff isn't necessarily rude but they all seem clueless on how to deal with patients or keeping things organized. This was our third visit here abd it will definitely be our last one.

I went here to have a watch sized and shop for a necklace for a gift. I handed over the watch and was told it would be $15 plus tax for the sizing. I let them size it but didn't bother looking for a necklace. Maybe I'm just cheap but I don't like feeling like I'm being ripped off. And $15 for a task that takes all of five minutes makes me feel like that.
