My Bike Lane
By the authority vested in us, we pronounce all contributors to this site 100% genuine New Yorkers since fist-shaking is a long and honorable tradition in this city. Here, it's against cars and trucks gumming up the bike lane.

A 'guerilla historian' gets some fantastic shots of the city's underworld (tunnels especially) and abandoned locations. The prints are for sale, too ($45).

The Bag Blog
We wrote about this one some time ago, but you can never have too much info about bags, pocketbooks, and purses.

Old York Library
A wonderful collection of pictures, postcards, maps and memorabilia from our favorite city, founded by Seymour Durst in the 60s. It exists in the real world in CUNY's Graduate Center. Materials from the library can also be found here.

On NY Turf
Politics and community coverage.

The Secret New York
Yellow arrows point the way to secrets of the city. This event took place last year, but the repository of cool places makes for fun browsing.

You'll have to check the site for a fuller explanation, but this one has to do with the LES Hasidic community, the old Third Avenue elevated train, and what they have to do with each other.
