Oh, the stories she could tell.Cheng Tan sees the unfashionable side of the haute couture fashion shows in New York and Paris, from which she recently returned.The problem is “mum’s the word” under the La Jolla salon owner’s hair styling contract.While cutting edge-costumed models sashayed down the runway, she found herself unceremoniously washing the hair of one Phillip Lim model with hand soap in an aging building’s sink so low the model had to kneel on all fours. The emergency wash was to remove wax used to create the model’s hair-do in a previous show that day. At 35, Tan is one of a select brigade of hair stylists recruited by top fashion designers. She has been asked to do a “fresh shower” look as well as embed myriad items — brass birds, veils, flowers, starburst ornaments, etc. — in trendy tresses. She has styled for an androgynous look where sometimes the only way she could tell the male and female models apart was by … [Read more...] about Behind the scenes at Fashion Week in New York and Paris is far from glamorous

Economy By BEN CASSELMAN, KEITH COLLINS and KARL RUSSELL FEB. 15, 2019 Amazon may be pulling the plug on its Queens campus, but New York City’s tech boom is likely to endure. Long before Amazon announced that New York had won a share of its second-headquarters sweepstakes, tech was a rising force in the local economy. Google, which already has thousands of workers in New York, plans to double its work force in the city and build a $1 billion campus just south of the West Village. Facebook, Apple, Uber and other companies are also expanding their presences, as is a rising generation of homegrown companies. Even Amazon itself said Thursday that it planned to keep adding to its New York work force. Tech’s rise is helping to offset a gradual decline in jobs on Wall Street. 30% of jobs 25 20 15 10 Wall Street Tech sector 1990 1995 2000 2005 2010 2015 30% of jobs 25 20 15 10 Wall Street Tech sector 1995 … [Read more...] about Why Tech Could Keep Gaining Ground in New York Even Without Amazon
Linda Oh plays the bass. Acoustic and electric, in trios, quartets, quintets, and sextets led by some of the best musicians in contemporary jazz. She’s 31, was born in Malaysia and raised in Australia, is of Chinese descent, and has lived in New York City, still the epicenter of jazz, for the past twelve years. In that time, through hard work, pluck (sorry), and great skill, her reputation has steadily grown, and she’s quietly become a star in jazz circles. She has sat in on countless recording sessions, gigs all around town at venues small — where they pass around a tin can — and large, and increasingly tours the country and the world. Linda Oh is a sideman, or rather, a sidewoman. She is, you might say, almost famous. Like many sidemen, Oh is also an aspiring bandleader. But if jazz is a notoriously tough sell, bass players are even tougher. Essential as the instrument is to time and rhythm, and as voluptuous its presence on the bandstand, it often fades … [Read more...] about Almost Famous, Almost Broke: How Does a Jazz Musician Make It in New York Now?

A moment after that intuition struck, two men grabbed him, threw him against a car and started punching him. The victim had dropped a box containing $200, meant for charity, but the money went untouched. The student, it seemed, was attacked because he was overheard speaking Hebrew on his cellphone. His two assailants were indicted on assault and hate crime charges. No other American city is more closely associated with Jewish identity than New York or more adamantly imagines itself as the capital of liberalism’s most cherished values of tolerance, acceptance and diversity. And yet, at the same time, New York has become an … [Read more...] about Is It Safe to Be Jewish in New York?
