Here’s what the Untapped staff is reading in the HQ today:
- Museum of the Dog Relocating to NYC [NBC Universal]: Calling all dog lovers: the American Kennel Club is bringing its Museum of the Dog to New York City. The museum, which is currently in St. Louis, features collections of dog art. It was founded in New York City in 1982 but moved to St. Louis in 1987 and has been there ever since.
- New Yorkers just selected a book for the entire city to read in America’s biggest book club [Business Insider]: A warning to all New Yorkers: If everyone on the subway seems to be reading the same book this spring, you’re not going crazy. New York City residents have picked “Americanah” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as the winning book for the “One Book, One New York” program.
- NYC street art secrets, from Little Italy’s ‘Temper Tot’ to Brooklyn’s ‘Not One More Death’ [amNewYork]: Take a walk around New York City and you’ll pass more than a few murals along the way, guaranteed. The wildly different street art found within each borough brings various neighborhoods to life, from a mural highlighting the history of Coney Island to a tribute to a major fashion brand in SoHo. Some, like a tiny green superhero watching over Little Italy, have even come to represent the areas in which they’re found.
