citibike flatironThe rumors are flying that Rihanna may perform a public concert in the Flatiron next to Madison Square Park  in conjunction with the planned NBA All-star game.

The concert itself is said to be happening Thursday, February 12th in the Flatiron Pedestrian Plaza and they will shut down “Fifth Avenue and Broadway from 23rd to 26th streets, as well as 24th and 25th streets between Broadway and Sixth Avenue” according to the New York Post.

Whether it is Rihanna or not is to be determined. The event is being organized by Roc Nation (Jay Z’s company) but it is not clear if Jay Z will be present or perform. They plan to announce the performer 1 week before the event.

Whomever performs, the neighborhood is certain to be a mess of people and traffic that day, and possibly from February 10th through the 13th, so plan accordingly. The actual NBA All-star game is Sunday, Feb. 15th at Madison Square Garden.

The storm that wasn’t: NYC “Blizzard” 2015

blizzard 2015 nycAfter a lot of hype and fear-inducing talk by media and local government, the blizzard in NYC left about 4-5 inches of snow on the ground.

Not sure how this one was so incorrectly predicted but the city shutdown seems a bit ridiculous in hindsight.

Of course you still do not want to be out driving in windy snow, but this was hardly what the media made it out to be. Fairway lines were the longest I have ever seen before the storm, so some businesses clearly benefited from the hype.

It did make for a nice snow day in Madison Square Park however.

In what is reported to be a murder suicide, two employees of Home Depot on 23rd Street (between 5th and 6th Avenue) are dead following a shooting in the store this afternoon around 3pm.

According to CNN, a 38-year-old store manager was shot and killed in an aisle of the store, and then the shooter, who apparently worked at the store and may have recently been fired, allegedly killed himself.

The store was reportedly packed with shoppers buying gear for the upcoming blizzard, but fortunately it does not seem that anyone else was targeted or injured. More to come as/if we get it.
