18 Cool NYC Websites

A Love of Monsters A tour of the city's gargoyles and other architectural details.
Roulette Experimental music homebase for musicians and audiences.
Gawker Smart, media-focused blog (weblog).
NYC Beer Guide Micros, events, pubs, and homebrewing. Quenching.
Moss Soho's Moss, that great collection of home furnishings, makes for pleasurable online browsing.
Early Films of NY 45 short silent films of NYC from 1898-1906. Download and watch these amazing slices of life.
NY Theatre News, reviews and buzz. And not just Broadway.
Urban Hound Beautifully designed and helpful site for NYC dogs (and owners).
Chowhound Scrappy site for the food-obsessed who eschew conventional, predictable eateries.
Bellydance NY Performances, classes and fabric sources for the gyrating set and fans.
Craig's List A virtual community bulletin board. Look for apartments, jobs, personals, and things for sale.
Forgotten NY One of our favorites: a 'you'd never believe you're in NY' section, old advertising, trolleys, alleys, and lots of other fun stuff.
Working Today Health insurance for freelancers, consultants and other self-employed workers in the NYC area. A godsend.
Bizbash A bible for the special events industry, helpful and entertaining for the rest of us.
Brett News Brett Leveridge's 'peppy 'zine for active people' featuring humorous and insightful observations on New York and life, now in its 9th year. OK, maybe not that cool but the city has done a great job of organizing agencies, services, etc. all in one place.
Cool Junkie Self-proclaimed cool makes us suspicious, but good stuff on nightlife, clubs, DJs, and music.
Coney Island All things Coney, including the Mermaid Parade, Circus Sideshow, Coney Island Museum.
"The single most exciting thing you encounter in government is competence, because it's so rare."
-Daniel Patrick Moynihan (1927-2003)
