I have always felt like I’m acting because I love it, but I don’t particularly have any right to be doing it. - Greta Gerwig, as interviewed by Lena Dunham for Paper Magazine
An address on Vanderbilt Avenue in Brooklyn. An F train that never comes. Unfinished on-spec scripts for “Saturday Night Live.” The artistically inclined friend of yours who, incongruously, is dating a man who works at Goldman Sachs. That exorbitant $3 fee at the Bank of America A.T.M. — and the long unpalatable walk to the next deli, to find a cheaper option.
Such are the totems of young life in New York City, the visual and emotional shorthand that anyone who has lived and struggled here in their underfinanced 20s will immediately recognize. This period of time — the years of going to adult dinner parties without anything adult to relate; the friendships that end over trivial matters of geography and relationship status; the afternoons of waking up at 2 p.m., and starting to drink at 3 — is the subject, loosely, of a heartfelt new film from Noah Baumbach, “Frances Ha.”

FiftyThree Makes Time Inc. List of 10 NYC Startups To Watch
Today, Time Inc. unveiled its third annual list of 10 NYC Startups to Watch for 2013. We’re honored to be featured alongside peers whom we deeply respect in the NYC startup community.
FiftyThree has grown by leaps and bounds since launching our first product Paper in March 2012. Our team continues to grow as well. Each day we’re surrounded by and collaborate with people we admire: Inventors, painters, musicians, filmmakers, marathoners, comedians, Canadians and equally impressive teammates based in Portland and Seattle.
Still, we have a ways to go. We like to say “Paper is where ideas begin…” And in the truest sense of the word, this adventure is only beginning. People are at their best when they create, and we’re honored to play a part in enabling creativity. Join us.
Using negative space in photos he takes of the sky, Thomas Lamadieu sketches playful illustrations that wedge themselves between towering buildings.
The most striking feature is how the contours of the buildings form everything from beards to mythical animals.
