Artist Nathan Sawaya has added a new piece to his iconic Lego sculpture collection today (November 20), as he unveiled his new masterpiece this morning at Discovery Times Square. Through a process of submissions to the "What Should Nathan Build?" program through Discovery's site, New Yorker Suzan Goldstein's submission was chosen, and thus Sawaya's One World Trade Center masterpiece was born.
The breathtaking sculpture only took ten days to complete according to Sawaya, which is a breathtaking feat given the amount of detail put into the piece. The scupture will be on display from the remainder of Sawaya's 'The Art Of The Brick' exhibition, which ends its stay in NYC's Discovery Times Square on January 5, 2014.
Be sure to catch Sawaya's exhibit before it's gone, and see the stunning new sculpture for yourself!
With the opening of Simulcast on November 18th, Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment is finishing up the final touches for their grand opening on November 23rd. Two years in the making, and $85 million later the entertainment center is ready for business. An eventful destination for all, the venue features on-site betting for horse races, delicious food, and joyous happy hours.
Simulcast, a year round betting center, sports a comfortable atmosphere and separate entrance where guests are welcome to watch the games from the television screens. The exclusion of individual betting tables allows Simulcast to maintain a calm vibe. Within Simulcast is Race World, a separate room that has a $3 entrance fee and individual betting tables that seat up to 104 people. Serious betters will want to scope out the V.I.P. Lounge where they are able to bet on different countries from thier own individual betting table. However, entrance is by invitation only. The Broadcast Center is the studio where hosts can interview the drivers live from the track and provide the audience with updates. An open bar, food court, and cafe can be found nearby, allowing guests to casually make their way around the grounds as they decide to order burgers, tacos, or pizza.
There has been a long battle to save the iconic-historical landmark of Queens, and graffiti mecca, Five Pointz. This has been an intricate piece of Queens history for years now, and whether you're a fan of the building or not, you have heard the landmark. Owner Jerry Wolkoff has allowed street artists to create walls of art on this former warehouse since 1993. Last week, a federal judge denied the stop of the demolition of the space. This morning, it happened, and no, it wasn’t Banksy’s doing – the buffing of 5ptz, an action that no one thought would happen so soon, happened. The graffiti art landmark- seen from the Queens-Manhattan 7 Line, is closing. The space has been painted-over and demolition will begin soon following the building of new condos. Street art fans were furious to hear the news as a decade of work has been tarnished. Five Pointz attributed to the coming together of the five New York boroughs: Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island, but the space is a global topic. Today a part of New York's culture and history is being defaced. True street art lovers, artists and followers can say that the demolotion of Five Pointz is their defintion of vandalizm, a deliberate destruction of or damge to public or private property. The Nitty Gritty New York City has lost this artistic spot - but we can only hope that something of the same nature evolves from this sad day.

After being in NYC for less than a month, Sankeys NYC has already found itself cranking out killer parties left and right, leaving NYC party-goers with a new favorite club to hit up on the weekends.
Known for bringing a taste of Ibizia and the UK to NYC, Sankeys is at it again with their new instalment of UK’s award-winning Tribal Sessions.
Originally being a facepainting party where Sankeys founder, David Vincent, personally painted the faces of all patrons, Tribal Sessions has since been a mainstay in the UK. The philosophy behind Tribal Sessions is ‘Forward thinking music without prejudice’. Staying true to that motto you can find nothing but an underground scene with lots of hard hitting beats and a crowd that is there for the music.
