FEATURES
Feeding Frenzy

Navigating the city's vast, spectacular smorgasbord isn't easy. But luckily, our insatiable critic has eaten everything -- from perfectly seared steak at Baldoria to foie gras and truffles at Le Bernardin to the quintessential junk-food fix at Peanut Butter & Co. -- so you won't have to.

A City of Stories

Bill O'Reilly's years as a TV newsman taught him to distrust the media -- and he's turned his anger into a top-rated TV show and a best-selling book.

The Silicon Lining

The dot-com bubble may have burst, but all that industry-building did not go for naught. Steve Bodow talks with the VCs who, with an infrastructure in place, lots of trained talent, and seed money to spare, are just waiting for the right moment to get back into tech. It won't be long. In the meantime, what's going on with all those Ivy League English majors who migrated here looking to cash in on the e-commerce boom? Vanessa Grigoriadis finds out how Silicon Alley casualties are coping.
