The best plant stores NYC has to offer

Aside from the most gorgeous parks in the city, New Yorkers are pretty deprived of greenery. That’s why so many of us turn to the best plant stores NYC offers to bring a bit of the tropics indoors.

But stop by any garden store and experts will advise on what type of potted plants, low-maintenance succulents, cacti and other selections are best for you and your surroundings. From flower shops to massive green houses, here’s where to buy plants in NYC. RECOMMENDED: Full guide to shopping in NYC

12 New Yorkers tell us where they go for the best drunk food in NYC

It's a scientific fact that everything tastes better when you're drunk, right? If you're a real New Yorker, you probably already have your go-to spot for drunken eats to ward off tomorrow's hangover, but on your next boozy foray during the wee hours, be sure to check out these late-night restaurants, food trucks and 24-hour restaurants that are beloved by our Tastemakers and staff, alike.  “Any place on Macdougal Street between Bleecker and W 3rd Street is a win-win. You can have you choice of: Kati Roll, Mamoun's (you cannot go wrong with the shawarma) Artichoke pizza, just to name a few. There is also Joe's Pizza (aka one of the best pizza in NYC) around the corner on Carmine St, off of 6th Ave as well!” –Nazra Khalid “It might not be a big secret, but when you're craving Chinese food, Wo Hop in Chinatown will hit the spot. This underground dive spot has plates filled with your favorites and enough of it to feed your monster appetite. Best part is you don't have to wait FOREVER for the food and you know when you're drunk it could feel like hours after ordering.” –Gorge Gallardo, video editor “Hit up 375 Degrees in LES or Pommes Frites in Greenwich Village for fries that will soak up all that alcohol!!” –Elaine Chan "Diners!! ALL OF THEM. Real Diners are 24 hours and are the perfect place to get anything your little drunk heart wants. Waffles? Spaghetti? Grilled Salmon? Doesn't matter, you can get it at these Diners."–Delia Barth, video editor “Insomnia Cookies! They are all

See vintage photos of the East Village in the 1980s

With gentrification rapidly consuming NYC neighborhoods, it's sometimes difficult to remember what the earlier days of New York were like. With climbing rents and new bars and restaurants opening weekly, the East Village feels a lot different from the social movements taking place in the 1980s and the heyday of the punk scene at venues like CBGB. These incredible shots come courtesy of Tony Mangia, who in 1980 began publishing an independent newspaper called The Other Paper that covered community issues, news and the arts. During the '80s, he captured stunning images of New York streets and an East Village made of "abandoned tenements, drug raids and overdoses, the homeless on the Bowery, social change without social media." Take a journey back in time to the Bowery, Tompkins Square Park and more with these striking photos. RECOMMENDED: See more New York photo galleries

The best things to do on NYC rooftops

The best things to do on NYC rooftops

In the summer, New Yorkers can escape their cramped, poorly air-conditioned apartments in exchange for things to do on NYC rooftops. There’s nothing better than drinking atop one of Gotham’s many rooftop bars or watching outdoor movies with killer views of the skyline at sunset. When the heat cranks up to melt-mode, you’ll be grateful for all the hotels with rooftop pools that are open to the public. Reserve a lounge chair, crack open a good book and keep the frozen cocktails coming. Sounds like bliss, right? These are just a few of the amazing things to do outside on NYC rooftops during the warmer months. Read on for more suggestions for cool things to do way up high.  RECOMMENDED: Full guide to things to do in the summer in NYC

The best grocery stores in New York

The best grocery stores in New York

There’s a reason New Yorkers tend to go out to dinner or just order pizza delivery instead of hitting up a grocery store. Shopping for food in NYC is hard, damn it! We deal with crowded stores, long lines, expensive produce and then we have to lug it all back on the subway. But life doesn’t have to be this way. That’s why we set out to find grocery stores in NYC neighborhoods that are reasonably priced, have a really great selection of products and other perks like ready-to-eat meals, juice bars and outdoor sitting areas. From local health food stores to well-stocked supermarkets, find the best grocery store by neighborhood.

Food For Health

Food For Health

This Upper East Side health food store carries a diverse array of brands that bigger markets (ahem, Whole Foods) don’t carry, along with natural and organic food and produce that won’t empty your pockets. With organic, paleo and vegan prepackaged foods, a small deli and juice bar, an onsite biochemist and free local deliveries, it’s no wonder the market is a favorite in the neighborhood.

Kobrick Coffee Co.

Kobrick Coffee Co.

4 out of 5 stars

Let’s be real—coffee cocktails have never been cool. But when a century-old roastery debuts a bar program serving inventive iterations of those once-disreputable java drinks in the Meatpacking District, it piques our interest. Fourth-generation Kobricks, siblings Scott and Niki, put a boozy twist on the family business (great-granddad Samuel Kobrick established the roastery and distributor Kobrick Coffee Co. in 1920), teaming up with Hella Bitters founder Tobin Ludwig for an all-day coffeeshop–cocktail-bar hybrid that will give you all kinds of buzz. 
ORDER THIS: Cocktails with a caffeine jolt ($15), though you won’t find any espresso martinis here. Instead, modern coffee-spiked quaffs include the aromatic Mexican Jumping Bean, a blend of Kobrick’s full-bodied Tiger Stripe ristretto shot, reposado tequila and the citrusy amer China-China; and the Three Hour Kyoto Negroni, a smooth union of the traditional recipe with the roastery’s rich single-origin Kenya AA dripped through a sleek Yama brew tower. Although the shop’s pride and joy may be its house joe, coffeeless heavy hitters ($16) like the Chemex Bloody Mary (featuring vodka infused directly with fresh horseradish, habanero, lemon and Worcestershire sauce) and the Voodoo Guy (a margarita riff with jalapeño-infused mescal, lime juice and muddled ginger) do not disappoint either. GOOD FOR: A mellow respite from rowdy MePa revelers vying for entry into velvet-roped clubs. Bargoers can settle onto stools at the front bar or h

In addition to the chance to Instagram network (everyone follow @gooseisontheloose immediately), pet parents can enjoy a beer garden, food trucks and live DJ. The event is free and open to the public with RSVP, so grab your canine, dress her up in her finest outfit/bandana and head to Williamsburg for a pawsome day in the sun.

10 adorable pets you can adopt this weekend

10 adorable pets you can adopt this weekend

Are you one of the many New Yorker's (like me) looking to adopt their own pup or Instagram pet celebrity? Even though the struggle to have a pet in the city is real, there are a few of us who are willing to give up the little free time we have outside of work to share our cramped apartments with a furry companion. There are tons of adoption centers and rescues in the city that can sometimes be difficult to navigate, but this weekend Best Friends Animal Society will make it easy. The animal welfare organization is hosting a free super adoption event from April 24-26 with over 600 of the city's most eligible pets up for adoption. More than 30 animal rescue groups will have dogs and cats up for adoption, including Second Chance Rescue, Bully Project and Staten Island Hope Animal Rescue. Potential adopters can also expect to see some animal-loving celebs throughout the weekend including Maggie Q, Jake Robinson and others. The free event will be held at The Altman Building at 135 W. 18th Street in Manhattan from 4-8pm on Friday, and Saturday and Sunday from 11am-7pm. Adoptions start at $25, which is a bargain for anything in New York. All pets will be neutered and vaccinated, and adopters will also receive a goody bag when they take home their new pet. We can only wonder what's in them. Poop bags? Doggie rain booties?  Here's who you could take home this weekend:  Hi I'm Porkchop and I look like I'd be a great snuggler. Will you adopt me?Photograph: Courtesy Best Friends Animal S

Get ready to drool: Introducing the perfect burger

When it comes to the best burgers, New Yorkers are an opinionated bunch. Just check out our annual Battle of the Burger competition for proof—the sold-out live event takes place tonight at South Street Seaport. But what makes the perfect burger? Is it the bun (potato, seeded, grilled), the patty (Angus, chuck, rib eye, brisket) or the fixins? We've done the legwork and come up with what we believe is the top-of-the-heap, crème-of-the-crop, burger-busting best. Recreate or mix-and-match to your liking. Beef to bun, here’s the stack of your dreams. Illustration by Radio

Bill Nye on life, the universe and everything (and by 'everything' we mean bow ties)

Bill Nye on life, the universe and everything (and by 'everything' we mean bow ties)

​​Anyone who grew up in the ‘90s knows him: He's Bill Nye the Science Guy, and he's about to drop some serious knowledge on you. Although Nye's educational TV show ended in 1998, the star has been busy hosting TV series' on The Science Channel and Discovery, debating creationism with "Anti-Science Guy" Ken Ham and taking selfies with Obama and Neil deGrasse Tyson. In advance of the Bill Nye the Science Guy lecture this weekend at Irving Plaza, the man of science discusses the scientific mysteries he finds most compelling, the possibility of a new TV show and his famed bow tie collection. How does it feel to have inspired millions of people about science?It’s wonderful. But I’ll admit, I’m not sure I grasp the reach of the show. So many people have come up to me to tell me how it influenced their careers and even their lives. It’s amazing and very gratifying. You're in New York City for three nights this weekend. What can people expect from your new lecture?I hope they’ll laugh. I hope they’ll enjoy the story of how the Science Guy came to be. Most especially though, I hope they’ll leave with optimism about how we each can be part of a bright future for humankind and change the world. It is very cool indeed to be on the same stage that has presented the Ramones, U2 and Bob Dylan. Science as the new rock & roll. Who knew? Rumor has it that you’re shopping around for a new TV show. Will today’s younger generation get to watch Bill Nye the Science Guy 2.0?I believe the Science Gu
