    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    it is indeed on greene. i visited yesterday...i don't think it's worth going to, tbh. They have some older season stuff from like 08, but eh...

    CDG store is definitely worth checking out if you're in chelsea. really cool looking place, but it's kinda away from everything else.

    Bergdorf is pretty close to Barney's. Just walk a block towards fifth avenue and down a few streets. if you're in the neighborhood, it's worth checking out. it's right next to the apple store too. the store looks nice, but their men's buys aren't that great imo. maybe you'll find something you like there, though. might be nice to check out if you're looking for a fragrance, though. between barney's and bergdorf, you'll be able to try most fragrances worth buying. there's a huge douchebag in the suit's section at barney's. he's on the lower level for men's suits. i think it's the 7th floor? i forget. the top floor is for better suits, and the lower one is for midtier. there's a nice cuban hole in the wall if you're looking for some cheap eats...it's called tina's...56th between 5th and 6th i think? though if you're ballin', you'll probably want to get a nice prix fixe lunch somewhere (there's always nougatine, bouley, and other places for lunch) :foo:


    If you're in the mood for a beer, definitely check out the ginger man on 36th between 5th and madison. if you're downtown, there's also the blind tiger ale house, but i think the ginger man is infinitely superior. also closer to k-town...:foo:

    I'm pretty sure this co-op location is women's only. You're better off going to the one on 18th. St. between 7th Ave and 8th Ave.

    Went to Aldea for dinner on Saturday. If you haven't heard of it, it's an Iberian (Portuguese/Spanish) place. Got croquetas de bacalhau to start and they were delicious. For the main dish, I had arroz de pato, which is a plate of rice with Spanish chorizo, olives, and duck cracklings with some slices of duck on top. It's kinda become their signature dish, and it's delicious. They also have an awesome lunch deal: $24 for three courses, Monday-Friday, all year (most places only do that deal during restaurant week).

    Judging by where you're already going you can spend some money, so for Italian, a great option is Del Posto. If you can get into Babbo instead i've heard you should do that, but I've never been because it's a pain in the rear to get in. Some other options for Italian: Bar Buto, Maialino, Marea (sea food, as the name indicates). If you can do the tasting at Torrisi Italian Specialties it's apparently very impressive, but getting a spot can be diffiult. I've also heard Peasant is really good.

    If you want something a little cheaper, I really like Otto. It's another Mario Battali spot, his low-key pizza place to be exact. Pasta and pizza are cheap but good, they have plenty of anitpasti too, and a really extensive wine list. Last time I was there Battali was at the table next to me.

    I love the Guggenheim. If the current exhibits interest you, you should make an effort to go.

    For Italian I recommend Osteria Morini, Puttanesca, Ciano, and Novita.
