The New York Times has proven to be very, VERY good at interactive stories and this one by Ben Adler is one of them. The piece, “Brooklyn the Remix: A Hip Hop Tour,” combines three loves of mine—hip hop, urban planning/development and historical context. Great read. [Photo Credit: David Burns/Associated Press]
A lot of the great writers were also great procrastinators. There’s hope for us!
This is brilliant. Slow clap for the @NewYorker!

Gawker published THEE best take-down of that awful WSJ piece by a high school senior whining about not getting into her dream colleges. It might seem harsh for grown-ups to take down a teenager’s essay, but believe me when I say that little girl’s piece was “special.” I agree with every word of Gawker’s response.
