Train delays and tourists are usually responsible for slowing down a New Yorker's commute — but the Olympus OM-D E-M10 would never do something like that. It's lightweight and compact — and if there's anywhere you can appreciate mobility, it's on the subway. Olympus loaned photographer Victor G. Jeffreys (of Dodge &…
If you were to ask a cross-section of New Yorkers what's the single product in existence they'd most like to see dispensed from a 24-Hour ATM, what would be the over/under on the number of people who'd say cupcakes? Has to be 75%, lowball, right? Well, today that nascent dream is a reality, my friends.
New York's fleet of iconic yellow taxis are still the city's reliable, non-surge priced transportation backbone. Its 13,500 medallion taxis make 170 million trips a year, every single one of them mapped in this beautiful new visualization from the folks at the MIT Senseable City Lab. The interactive map isn't just…
A gas leak triggered a powerful explosion in an East Harlem apartment building this morning, injuring dozens of people and killing at least seven. More than 200 firefighters responded to the blast, which completely destroyed one building and most of another.
New York has one of the oldest and biggest subways in the world, and as it has expanded, the city has used almost every letter in the alphabet to name its new lines. Conspicuously absent? The P line. Probably for the exact reason you'd imagine.
No matter what, the cops have to harass SOMEONE. Other groups the NYPD has been directed to issue summonses to and arrest, in no particular order:
The annual Armory Show has kicked off here in New York City, showcasing art from around the world, though perhaps still most widely known for its controversial 1917 show, when Marcel Duchamp displayed a repurposed urinal as art and the minds and morals of the art world collectively exploded.
Every New Yorker spends at least half of their time waiting for a train playing out different scenarios wherein which their lives are threatened and how they managed to get out of them in their heads. There are no exceptions – you definitely do this. If you don't do this, what are you a tourist? Pay attention! Obsess…
And now for a little hometown love - A view from the top of the probably very stupid 30 or so car pileup that occurred Sunday evening on the Bronx River Parkway in Yonkers.
Gizmodo photo editor Nick Stango collects and shares what he learned about the people who descend on our fair town to sell us Christmas Trees. The vendors he visited are mainly in lower Manhattan and north Brooklyn, but still show a wide variety in how this business goes down.
The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is getting lit up tomorrow night - the true herald that Christmas in New York has BEGUN.

Details emerging in the aftermath of the fatal derailment of a Hudson Line Metro North train on Sunday night include that the train was speeding as it approached the tricky curve where the crash occurred, and that the engineer driving the train was also drowsy and may have dozed off, waking too late to hit the brakes.
A sound produced by what is most likely the worlds largest accidental whistle has been reported by residents of the neighborhood immediately around the nearly complete One World Trade Center. Only occurring on particularly blistery days, its safe to say that while i'm sure the ghosts of New Yorker's past would…
It's been a bad year for the Metro North. Following a freight train derailment near the Spuyten Duyvil station in the Bronx in July, and a massive power outage on the New Haven line in September, a passenger train derailed early this morning, also near the Spuyten Duyvil train station, injuring over 60 passengers and…

Rough Trade record store / music emporium has opened on N 9th in Williamsburg, and based on these photos from Gizmodo's Mario Aguilar, it actually looks pretty legit. You can shop vinyl, cds, instruments, as well as books and art in this massive reclaimed industrial space.
These 3 people decided it'd be fun to jump down on the tracks and twerk it out. One of the YouTube commenters thinks this is the Fordham D station. The twerk quality is low, but the setting is absolutely nuts. TEENS DETECTED.
This Instagram is giving me high blood pressure. Godspeed suckers.
