Video: New York Women on Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton
Is a vote for Hillary Clinton an act of feminism? Should she have cried? Is it more important to have the first black man or the first woman president? These are the kinds of questions that Democratic-primary voters have been asking themselves during the most riveting election season in decades. According to
a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, women are evenly split between Clinton and opponent Barack Obama. More women than men also believe that the media is tougher on Clinton than on her male opponents. But what do New York women think? We put these questions to several of them in Union Square yesterday and found that Clinton cannot take even her constituents’ votes for granted. Watch the video.

Video: ‘Daily Show’ Audience, Writers Face Off

Daily Show
One week ago, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report returned to production, without writers. Would the shows be any good? Would anyone watch? The reviews were mixed, as were the ratings. But what about the audience? Daily Show diehards, who have waited months for their free tickets, now receive unexpected lessons in labor relations. Plus, they have to face picketing writers while waiting outside the studio. Awkward! Late last week, we sent intrepid video correspondent Tim Murphy to try to broker peace. And while the strike continues, at least the audience doesn’t have to feel scabby about it.

Video: UCB, We Are Scientists Rock Your Office Party

Office Party
Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and We Are Scientists joined New York Magazine on Wednesday for an office party a little more rocking than those uptight affairs we’ve been covering in recent weeks. While the company president got drunk and the intern repeated everything he’d overheard during his not-brief-enough tenure, at least there was a rock band to compensate for the awkwardness. Plus, everyone who came got a subscription to New York. This actually sounds way better than our holiday party. (Ahem.) Stay tuned for more New York by New York events in 2008.

Video: Barneys' Holiday Windows Revealed


Right about now, Barneys will be unveiling their legendary Christmas windows, and our own Fabiola Beracasa traipsed uptown to get a sneak peek. This year's theme is Give Good Green, and for it, Barneys creative director Simon Doonan invented "Rudolph the Recycling Reindeer." "The only sort of iconic visual associated with [the environmental movement] is the drowning polar bear," he told Fab. "Which wouldn't be very festive!" No indeed. Click above to see the windows, and hear Doonan explain why his Barneys staffers were gathering bottle tops from bars in the East Village and buying bottles from homeless people.
