Massive Event is not your average event company. Based in New York, Massive Events has been pushing the boundaries in the New York City event promotion and production industry. Over the years Massive Events has thrown parties in a massive way within NYC's finest nightlife hot spots and an ever-changing array of internationally recognized DJs and producers such as Dash Berlin, Paul van Dyk, Cosmic Gate, as well as other sought after electronic dance music artists. What better way then to celebrate 5 years in the business than with the most one of the most massive Black Friday parties New York City has to offer? Joining in on the celebration is an solid line up of trance and progressive artists including Simon Patterson, TyDi, and Roger Shah.
In an effort to both combat environmental pollution and reign in some of the traffic problems on the streets, New York City’s Taxi and Limousine Commission created a contest in which anyone could enter a new taxi design. “Request for proposals” was sent out December 2009, and over a year later, the city may choose a winner.
The finalists’ designs may be deemed too unrealistic to create and a call for new contest submissions may be in order. However, if there is a winner, that winner stands to supply more than 13,000 yellow taxis for at least a decade, a deal that could be worth up to $1 billion.
Liberty State Park in Jersey City now has a something to offer those of us without houseboats and yachts. Executive Chef and owner, Chris Siverson, has graced us all with a new seafood-centric restaurant and event space called Maritime Parc.The building was originally intended as an office space but thankfully Chef Siverson saw more promise than did its designers.
Now, with the help of Stephanie Goto, the building has been turned into a modern space with a svelte design. It has a unique yurt type feel inside with an easy balance of exposed wood and soft fabrics. Each of the three floors has a terrace showing off the Manhattan/Jersey skyline.
