On a recent day of subway rides through New York City, I counted no fewer than ten passengers (myself included) wearing Timberland boots, or as New Yorkers refer to them, Timbs.

On the 50th anniversary of the creation of the now-classic 6-inch yellow Timberlands, let’s talk about how a single boot brand became a staple of New York fashion. But to find out how Timbs got on the feet of New Yorkers of all walks of life, let’s take a trip to 1973 New Hampshire. As in the rest of New England, the wea ..read more

When you go see The Art of Killin’ It, don’t expect to be sitting quietly in the audience watching a performance play out on stage. Instead, from the moment you enter the fictional Hardigan Manor, you are a welcomed guest at an album release party f ..read more
