Here’s what the Untapped Cities staff is reading in the HQ today:

  • The Urban Lens: Riley Arthur is documenting every diner in NYC [6sqft]: “There’s no comparison to a New York diner experience,” says photographer Riley Arthur, which is what led her to start documenting all of the establishments throughout the five boroughs. Though she recently moved from Astoria to Florida, over the past two-and-a-half years she’s photographed roughly 215 diners (“I’ve lost count,” she says), usually hitting 10-12 a day and ordering a matzo ball soup at each! Since she began, at least a dozen diners have closed, usually due to rising rents, but Riley still has about 60 left to photograph.
  • Landmarked Limestone in PLG and Two More to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.085 Million [Brownstoner]: After a foray into apartment open houses last week we’re back to full-on houses today, though this being the dead of winter and the market being slow we’ve got three instead of the usual four. All of them are move-in ready, though one is a potential candidate for a makeover. They’re in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Red Hook and Bushwick.
