Legendary New York City Eatery Named Best Casual Restaurant in America

The best casual restaurant in the nation is right here in New York City.
Katz's Delicatessen has claimed the top spot on The Daily Meal's list of the 101 Best Casual Restaurants in America for 2017. The iconic Lower East side eatery opened in 1888 and has been serving its legendary corned beef and pastrami since.
The food site had struggled with comparing casual restaurants like Katz's Deli to upscale restaurant's like Eleven Madison Park. So, they created this list in addition to their annual list of the nation's best restaurants.

於2016年在曼哈頓下城舉辦的首個「共享街道」(Shared Streets)活動反響熱烈,行人、自行車和機動車分享下城區從市政廳南至砲台公園(Battery Park)整整60個街區的街道。日前紐約市交通局(DOT)也在華埠多條街道上安裝交通記錄器,將從7月開始監測華埠交通狀況,測試華埠開展「共享街道」的可能性。華埠商家對此報以積極態度,期待華埠也能像特定路段在夏天禁止通車、路邊擺出餐桌提供表演的小義大利(Little Italy)一樣,吸引更多顧客前來。


ROTTERDAM, the Netherlands - The wind over the canal stirred up whitecaps and rattled cafe umbrellas. Rowers strained toward a finish line and spectators hugged the shore. Henk Ovink, hawkish, wiry, head shaved, watched from a V.I.P. deck, one eye on the boats, the other, as usual, on his phone.

Chinatown's Suffragist, Pastor, and Community Organizer
Young, educated, and successful, Mabel Lee had a bright future ahead of her in 1924. She was the daughter of a prominent Chinese American pastor and community leader, she had recently finished a PhD, and her work to promote women's suffrage had been covered by The New York Times. She was well-connected with the emerging leaders in China and was just beginning to establish her own place in shaping its future when tragedy struck. Her father, who had dedicated his life to ministering to the Chinese American community in New York, passed away suddenly, leaving his ministry and his family behind. Astonishingly, Mabel chose to give up her incredible opportunities in China to return and carry on the ministry her father started, a ministry that still endures today.
Following a searing three-day heat wave, the mayor's office announced Wednesday the launch of a $106 million initiative to "mitigate the threat to public health from the urban heat island effect exacerbated during summer months." This urban heat island effect, as anyone who's ever traveled from midtown to the beach intuitively understands, refers to the heat-absorbing asphalt and concrete surfaces that can make the city miserable this time of year.

Mayor de Blasio Will Take Your Questions at LES Town Hall on June 21

LOWER EAST SIDE - Residents of Lower Manhattan will get a chance to ask Mayor Bill de Blasio their questions at a town hall meeting in the Lower East Side this week. 

The town hall will take place at 273 Bowery, a space occupied by the Chinatown YMCA and University Settlement's Houston Street Center, at 6:30 p.m., according to officials. It is co-hosted by Councilwoman Margaret Chin, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez.

Dropbox founder Drew Houston explained that the idea for his file sharing company came out of a mistake he made and a ride on a Chinatown bus.
Houston spoke to Business Insider about his life before Dropbox, which involved using a thumb drive for storage and emailing himself files.
9/11 Tribute Museum Opens, Honoring the Good That Followed Evil

If there is a life-affirming lesson to be learned from the aftermath of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the new 9/11 Tribute Museum is the place to find it.
Officially opening on June 13 in its new, 18,000-square-foot quarters at 92 Greenwich Street, the museum's mission and message have evolved from its 10 years as the Tribute Center, housed across from the World Trade Center site in a Liberty Street storefront. There, years before the bigger and better known National September 11 Memorial Museum opened, the center served as a shrine of solemn remembrance where 9/11 stories were told by the people who lived them.

Deadline Extended for Gateways to Chinatown
Due to the volume of written questions we received for Gateways to Chinatown, the proposal deadline has been extended to 2:00pm Friday, June 30. Answers to the written questions are posted to the project website's Maps and Resourcespage (may require refreshing your browser). The updated deadline allows for teams to incorporate the new information.

Gateways to Chinatown has been organized in collaboration with The New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) and Chinatown Partnership, and seeks innovative proposals to plan, design, and construct an iconic contemporary neighborhood marker at the nexus of Manhattan's Chinatown and the southern entrance to Little Italy's historic Mott Street.

Teams are invited to submit proposals to activate the space, honoring neighborhoods past and present while developing a forward-looking vision for the site. The team, which will be selected later this year, will have a $900,000 budget to design and implement their proposal, and will begin working with the community in early 2018. Visit the project website to learn more about how we're engaging the local community, and how your team can respond to residents' visions for their neighborhood.
