NEIGHBORHOOD REPORT: CLINTON HILL; A Broken Angel Lifts Its Eccentric Wings Over the Brooklyn Skyline

Brooklyn's skyline has only a few standouts. A building named Broken Angel is one of them. The building, at 4 Downing Street, north of Fulton Street in Clinton Hill, is 10 stories high behind a tract of starter homes on Grand Avenue. It is a jumble of structures cobbled together seemingly without reason; some of its ''stories'' are no more than crow's-nest-size outcroppings perched on wooden beams.

Vice Portfolio

I've done several stories for Vice over the years about everything from Venezuelan food shortages to why the number 420 is REALLY associated with pot. This link will take you to a portfolio of my work. My wife and I also appeared on a Vice/HBO special about mixed-race families.

Grain Custom Surfboards

A trip to Grain Surfboards in York, Maine, takes the travel souvenir far beyond T-shirts and snow globes. Students who attend the four-to-seven-day shaping seminars stay nearby and learn to use planes, chisels, and other woodworking tools to custom-craft their own surfboards. “We’re on a little farm ten minutes from the beach,” says Grain founder Mike LaVecchia.

Women's lib arrived on bicycles

Susan B. Anthony once said, "Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world." A woman on a bicycle, the equal rights champion observed, presents "the picture of free and untrammeled womanhood." Susan and her fellow 19th-century women had been severely trammeled their entire lives.

Unraveling the Garlic Knot

Most readers of this magazine will have eaten their first garlic knot on Long Island. This makes sense since the majority of our readers live on Long Island. But we at Pulse believe there’s a case to be made that the first official garlic knots ever were twisted up right here. There are always discrepancies surrounding the origins of foods tied to specific regions.

Where There’s a Will There’s a Wave

Long Beach big wave surfer Will Skudin is coming off the most impactful year of his life. It might not have been the most fun, nor the easiest, but it was certainly the most eventful 365 day period in Will’s 28. Skudin began 2013 in the throes of Hurricane Sandy, helping dig his hometown out of the mud; the year’s end brought about a nod from Eastern Surf Magazine as the 2013 Surfer of the Year.
