People say that after ten years of living in the city, you can legitimately call yourself a real New Yorker. Well, I’ve been here for eleven years, and while I’ve put in the time, I don’t think I’ve quite earned the badge just yet. New York is an incredibly vibrant and diverse place, but it is also a city that takes some time to get to know. Read Article

Craig Kanarick

I’ve been living in NYC for 20 years but because both of my parents are from NYC, I feel like I have been here my whole life. I can’t really imagine living anywhere else.

Craig Kanarick is a entrepreneur, designer and artist living in Manhattan. His latest company, New York Mouth, is an online store for indie food – small-batch, artisanal and handcrafted products from small independent producers in and around the New York Area. Craig is perhaps best known as the co-founder and former Chairman and Chief Strategic Officer of pioneering digital agency Razorfish, which he helped run for over 7 years. His design work is part of the permanent collection of the SF Museum of Modern Art and his photographs of candy are included in many well-respected private collections.

“I’ve been living in NYC for 20 years but because both of my parents are from NYC, I feel like I have been here my whole life. I can’t really imagine living anywhere else. As a voracious consumer, I thrive on access to anything and everything at any time of any day. Being at the crossroads of the world provides me access to a level of talent, creativity and inspiration that can’t be matched in any other place.”

Craig's Picks

Marlow and Daughters

“My family and I go to this Brooklyn neighborhood grocer once a week to stock up on some of the tastiest food products available. Their butchers are some of the best in the city and their sausages and other meat products are second to none. In addition, the selection of fresh produce, cheese, dairy and small packaged goods from around the world makes this tiny shop a one-stop destination for anyone who loves food. They also supply proteins to their two sister restaurants across the street, Diner and Marlow & Sons, so plan on stopping there first before stocking your own kitchen.”

Jane’s Carousel

“One of the great things about New York is the huge range of neighborhoods one can visit. DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) in Brooklyn is one such neighborhood that often feels like it is another country. Warehouses, cobblestone streets, the River and more all collide in a beautiful harmony. Near the center of the area is a 90-year old carousel from the Philadelphia-Toboggan Company that has been completely restored and placed in a pavilion designed by Jean Nouvel. The first Carousel in the country to be added to the National Register of History Places will delight children (and adults) of all ages.”

Espana Streb Trapeze

Flying through the air with the greatest of ease is what comes to mind each time I step into the Espana Streb Trapeze school in Williamsburg. A regular Saturday destination, this vibrant warehouse contains a slew of acrobatic equipment, and a trapeze school open to anyone ages 5 or older. Birthday parties, special events or just groups of adventurous friends come here to experience the thrill of the trapeze, along with its surprisingly strong abdominal workout (holding the bar works a lot of muscles). It’s also inspiring just to watch. You won’t regret a visit here.
