Singh’s Sporting Goods Specializes in Cricket Gear — The pace at Singh's Sporting Goods is as languid as a cricket match - some of which can last for five days. A customer might try 30 bats before deciding to think it over and return the following day. Another might wander in, take a seat and watch a game from New Zealand on the shop's TV.

At Alan’s Alley Video, an Audience Lingers in the Aisles — The old woman sits in her winter coat amid towers of VHS tapes and DVDs, watching neglected Hollywood classics on the television above her. The shop's staff can say little about her except that she appears regularly and knows a lot about movies, but has rarely if ever rented one from them.

Neighborhood Joint

Strange, Beloved, Local, Endangered: Five Years of the Neighborhood Joint — It's the funny old store with a display that hasn't changed in decades and has exactly what you need. It's the clam shack, the ice cream stand, the well-worn diner, all wonderfully out of step with the current food trend.

Stateside, Kicking and Screaming at the Football Factory — Roger Smith, a bleary soccer fan, was still waking up as he sipped his Guinness, squinting through the darkness at the television. Others in the basement bar drank stronger stuff, washing down heavy breakfast sandwiches. The grotto reverberated like a tuning fork when a ball whistled into the net, jolting Mr. Smith alert, before the room returned to its reverent silence.

Two Visual Tales of New York — The two photographers were born just two years apart and grew up poor in Brooklyn in the 1920s and '30s. The war awakened them creatively. Their subject was New York. Although they became two of their city's most voracious visual chroniclers, their similarities mostly ended there.


Solo Eats: Ben's — Solo eating establishments-the truly great ones-require a precise atmosphere. Some are quiet and discreet. Others are unexpected and lie in plain sight. But they can all be difficult to find in a metropolis. Alex Vadukul presents a new one here on the first week of every month.

The New York Times — Recent and archived news articles by Alex Vadukul of The New York Times. Spurred by the absence of an indictment in the Eric Garner case, demonstrators took to the streets in a bid to disrupt New York City's rhythms. The small Greek Orthodox church that stood as a reprieve from the city's furious financial nerve center was crushed as the World Trade Center collapsed on Sept.

The small universe of New York cricket — Brooklyn After living in New York for 18 years I travelled two hours to a park on the borders of Brooklyn to watch one of the world's most popular sports - which, through a twist of irony, remains practically invisible in a metropolis known as 'the world's city'.
