Hello, all, and happy meeting you again! It is I, the Grand Job Czar of Brokelyn, here to point you to the most exquisite jobs available in New York City. You may be asking, “Why should I trust these magnificent-sounding jobs being thrust at me by this large man in a tinfoil hat?” Well, first off, it’s a crown, and secondly, because ever since I was a small child, all I ever wanted to do with my time was to help people find the most bitchenest places to work possible, and that’s exactly what I do now! So, if I could do it for me, then I can certainly do it for you too, and checking out these awesome job listings below is a great first step. (more…)

Welcome, Brokelyners, to another adventure in the magical world of employment! Here are some of our favorite picks from the wild world of hiring in New York, since although that kombucha starter rental business is obviously going to take off any day now, it’s usually nice to have some spending cash to throw around at things like “rent” and “food.” (more…)
Just in time for Christmas comes the news that the economy is continuing to lurch forward. The economy added 146,000 jobs in November and the unemployment rate fell to 7.7%, the least terrible it’s been since 2008. If you’ve been frustrated, that makes plenty of sense, but don’t fear! We found some jobs out there for you that practically have your name on them! If your name is say, “Freelance Social Media Specialist.” (more…)
Without a doubt, the best bike routes have great food at the end. I like to go from my house in Park Slope to Breezy Point, on the Rockaway Peninsula, to find Kennedy’s, a restaurant right on the beach with a fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline. Sometimes I head out through Sunset Park, with its world class Latin food, en route to Bay Ridge and the sublime Shore Road Bike Path, when my reward awaits at Gino’s on Fifth Avenue.
I love heading toward Williamsburg, up the Eastern Parkway bike path, through Bedford-Stuyvesant, eventually ending up at Carmine’s on Graham Avenue. There is nothing better than a Genoa salami hero after an afternoon on a bike!
Well, actually there is, but Carmine’s (346 Graham Ave. at Metropolitan, 718-782-9659) only sells Bud and Bud Light. Genoa salami heroes there start at $5.50, depending upon what you want on it. But are Carmine’s salami sandwiches really the best in Brooklyn? Anyone else tried ’em?
