Hello New Yorkers,

If you’re interested in the more spooky seasonal aspects of October, why not visit a haunted attraction? Want to add a little road trip and fright to your weekend? Check out this guide of terrifying places to visit in Connecticut.
Once praised as the jolliest place on earth, Anthony Bourdain’s shout out to Jollibee holds a lot of weight. Check out the chain Jollibee and why what they’re cooking up gets so much praise.πŸ²πŸ“ΈπŸŽ‰
It’s sweet, savory and it’s nutty, everything you need to fill up on during a cold afternoon. Here’s a simple and comforting recipe for a killer Pad Thai🍲🍴😍
Electronic vibes are what helps Chip Skylark shine amongst others in the rap genre. The rising Crown Heights musician is quickly generating a very unique fan base that appreciates such a sound. πŸŽΆπŸ˜πŸŽ€
It’s alive! Frankenstein, the classic figure of nightmares, cinema and art is taking center stage again. This exhibit stars Frankenstein in all of its horrific glory.πŸ•ΈπŸ–ΌπŸ˜±
New York Faces
There are certain class courses students dread, but others that change their lives forever. 
For Emma, studying “Food Art as Body Politics” inspired her to create food installations for museums and art exhibits.

Orlow is an accomplished writer (NY Mag's Grub Street, Saveur, Vice MUNCHIES, Tasting Table, HyperAllergic), a public programs producer, and an artist working with food

The hard work paid off, eventually landing her on Brooklyn Magazine's 30 under 30 list.
spoiled Sounds
Chip Skylark might sound familiar as the pop singer with the beautiful teeth from Fairly Odd Parents.

This Chip Skylark is a rapper out of Crown Heights distorting the genre’s current sound trap and vibe sounds. 
A fan of the Matrix, Skylark brings sci-fi into his music that makes you feel like your listening to music in another dimension.

He and his group EWC are definitely trying to shake up NYC’s entire view.

New Yorkers can barely afford to be...New Yorkers - so perfecting your smile might, understandably, be on the financial back-burner. We get it, but luckily - Candid Co. does too! Candid Co. provides direct-to-consumer clear aligners for 65% less than the cost of traditional braces (and none of the unsightly metal mouth!).
With Candid Co.’s flat rate model (a no-risk $95 for your initial modeling kit + $1900 for your invisible aligner system), their pricing is fully transparent. You can pay in full upfront, use dental insurance, or do a monthly plan that fits your budget so you can, you know...still make rent!
And if you think it all stops there, you’re so wrong. With the $1995 flat rate, you will also receive complimentary premium whitening solution, comprehensive Care Support 7 days a week, and an orthodontist who supervises and oversees your aligners and treatment progress.
So go on out to dinner with your friends. You can afford it all.
Haunted Art
Halloween is fast approaching, so the Morgan Library and Museum has exhibited a show featuring one of the scariest monsters we know, Frankenstein.

Celebrating Mary Shelley’s undead creature after 200 hundred years, the exhibit has amassed art from an overwhelming amount of sources.
Comic books, film memorabilia, posters, and inspired artworks. The show explores how Frankenstein came to be such a household name and how his popularity has fueled many other horror-themed classics. The show also dives into Shelley’s inspiration for her novel still, a must read.
Short Story Selection
Set in the steampunk world of New York’s sixth borough Lytton, moving pictures and advanced machines have started to worry the commonplace residents.

Two young inventors try to find their way in this seemingly British version of New York.

This story questions both the nature of machines as well as the nature of the self. How do humans create machines with minds, and why does it keep occurring?
