*Everyday Chatter

From this week's New Yorker magazine--bringing up artisanal babies, not so far-fetched:

Easter Sunday, art, and cake at Mars Bar. [NSC] & [MAD]

Has Gossip Girl just launched the ruination of Veselka? [EVG]

Painting of roll-down gates (weren't they banned by Bloomberg?) begins Festival of Ideas on the Bowery. [BB]

Newish Brooklyn Bridge Park condo gets its first retail--a high-end doggy spa and a wine store. What else? [NYO]

Behind the city's (and country's) blandification: "far too many of our most talented young people, seeing the astronomical rewards, have gone into finance rather than into fields that would lead to a more productive and healthy economy." [VF]

Here's the thing about Carrie Bradshaw's NY, most of the places that a young Carrie Bradshaw would have gone to is still alive - Lot 49 anyone?

It would be really funny to read a real guide to NY nightlife c. 1995.
