New York Times Takes Second Graders To One Of New York’s Fanciest Restaurants

The New York Times has realized that you don’t go viral with traditional stories anymore, no matter how interesting or factual they are. So they studied a bit of New Media, and made this adorable story. Instead of taking a renown food critic to a restaurant for their magazine’s fall Food issue, they took a group of second graders. The children were treated to a meal at one of New York City’s most expensive and fancy restaurants, Daniel. The kids enjoyed a seven course meal that would usually cost each diner over $200.

Crazy Artists Live In Human Hamster Wheel Apartment

New York Daily News reports that artists Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder have begun an outrageous performance art piece called ‘In Orbit.’

The two constructed a giant human hamster wheel of sorts that they plan to live in, or on, for ten days. One lives in the inner parts of the wheel, while another lives on the outer. 

They constructed the giant wheel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and have included all the necessary amenities, even a working bathroom and kitchen sink. 

To use different parts of their apartment, they must walk in tandem to move the ‘room’ into the center of the wheel. 

The project highlights “the relationship between roommates, space, and reliance on partners.”
