Whether you’re graduating and leaving the city for good, or just headed to suburbia for the summer, do something urban and make your state school friends jealous. McKenzie and Jorge, our in-house Instagram experts, braved the 7 train and headed to LIC, the trendiest hood in Queens. Here, they tested the best ways to exploit 5 Pointz for maximum #instalikes.
Local Staffers Ben Murray and McKenzie Beehler head back to their freshman year dorm, University Hall, and meet the cute freshmen currently living there. Less than a month left to finish our whole bucket list!
As you have probably heard by now (or seen everyone’s red-and-equal-sign Facebook profile photo), same-sex marriage came to the Supreme Court last week. The Nine heard from supporters and opposers on the legality of the Defense of Marriage Act and Prop 8 – two cases that could have tidal-wave shifts on the state of these laws across the country. Although cable news provided their fair share of coverage on the issue, we felt that the serious constitutional implications of the issue did not get their time of day.
We [the National Section Editors, John Surico and Jeremy Unger] spoke with NYU politics professor and law school affiliate Christine Harrington – for politics majors, you know her as the professor that teaches “Civil Liberties,” “Law and Society” and a few other constitutional seminars. Also, she predicted the outcome of the Obamacare case… so here’s our conversation with her about the legal battle for same-sex marriage in America.
By the end of today, the votes will be tallied, revealing the results of the vote of no confidence against university president John Sexton.

NYU Local invited some of our school’s lyrical greats to rap (and subsequently spit hot fire) on a roof. Rappers Dylan Owen, Topaz Jones, and Anonymous (And.On.I.Most.) joined beatmaker Sam Wildkatz for a few minutes of word play and tongue twisters to let off some steam before finals. Earthquakes ensued.
Last night, the NYU community took over the Central Park Wollman Rink for the fifth installment of Flurry, an event put on by the Inter-Residence Hall Council. With over 1600 students attending, the event proved that there is some type of community here at NYU.
This year’s Flurry included free ice skating, candy, five (count ‘em: FIVE) Housie Maguire-shaped cakes, “J-Sexy and I Know It” t-shirts (with proceeds going to the American Red Cross) and other types of NYU love. With the success of this event and the celebration of its 5th year anniversary, we decided to go behind the scenes and see what really goes down at Flurry.
