Hello New York,

We hope this edition of The Stoop finds you safe and warm in your home after this year's first snow. For those still displaced by the storm, we will be keeping you in our thoughts. 

Good news for anyone thinking about pursuing medicine, NYU announces zero tuition for all medical students

As the cold settles in, and the L train shutdown comes closer and closer, take time to enjoy the businesses along the  L Line before they're a bit harder to get to. From Graham Avenue's  Lella Alimentari to Bushwick's Forrest Point, the hike will be worth the bite. 

For those celebrating Friendsgiving this weekend take a pan of this crowd-pleasing stuffing to the table. It's vegan and flavorful, meaning everyone will want, and can have a bite. ðŸ¦ƒ
Have a good weekend, and stay warm! 
Listen Up: Mariah Carey - Caution
Play On: Through the Ages 
Have Fun
We survived the first snow of the season. Just because it’s cold now doesn’t mean you should upgrade your Hulu account.
Living in NYC means there is always something to do, whether its a concert or an art opening, a comedy show or a food event, we’ve got you covered.
spoiled Sounds
New York songstress Geminelle drops her new track "Sync Into You" a song dedicated to the one that both sends your heart fluttering, but keeps your soul grounded.

The result of a person so loving, an appreciation and gratefulness in the form of a song. Think soul inspired voice dancing over haunted layered production.

Listen to the romantic and endearing track below.
Finger Frame
Brooklyn-based KAWS is known for his experimental medium and influential work straddling the worlds of art and design to including and not limited to paintings, murals, large-scale sculptures, street art, graphic and production design.

GONE at Skarstedt Gallery explores the universal emotions of loss and sadness through bronze sculpture,  large-scale canvas pieces, and his classic crew of CHUM characters. 
Just For Laughs

These are truly some funny people. It's gonna be a great time to unwind from all the holiday stress.
Monthly Guide
November is a cozy time of the year. Getting so close to the end, yet there is still so much to do.
Dressed in cozy knits and plaids enjoy the change of seasons and holiday preparations in the Big Apple.
Let’s get celebrating, and take a look at some of the events you can do this month!
Short Story Selection
The streets of a big city can be dangerous at night, especially when the supernatural come out to feed. 
We follow a group of vampires living in run-down houses outside of central Baltimore.
Their minds have eroded and they refer to themselves and their dead victims both as meat. The living things they hunt are known as flesh. They seem to be driven by both the thirst and their fading human traits. 
When one of their group does not return from a hunt, tempers flare and empty threats are made, but none of them seem to care all that much. 
They simply feel as if they should.
