There have been rumors about Derek Jeter proposing to girlfriend Minka Kelly, and with Jeter putting his apartment on the market, those rumors are looking more likely.

Jeter has been living in his 4 bedroom, 5.5 bath penthouse apartment at Trump World Tower since 2001. He originally purchased the apartment for $12.6 million, and it comes with a chef’s eat-in kitchen, dining room, den, and living room with fireplace.

Over the weekend, the Wall Street Journal published an article about Turtle Bay in Midtown East. The article gives a breakdown of area restaurants, schools, and parks as well as crime stats for the area. As someone who used to live in the Turtle Bay area, I love the fact that the Wall Street Journal took the time to shine a light on this great neighborhood. While in Turtle Bay, make sure to stop by the United Nations for a tour, grab a pint at the Stag’s Head or a mixed drink at Beekman’s Bar & Books, and try a cupcake at the Buttercup Bake Shop.

Yesterday, the blog USA Photos Pictures published a post entitled “The Twenty Hilarious Historic Photos of New York City.” We loved the nostalgic look back at our great city, and we wanted to share the article.

When the iPhone 4 was released June 24th, a lot of people lost their minds. All three of the official Apple Stores in Manhattan had lines around the block from their Midtown East location at 767 Fifth Avenue to their Chelsea location at 401 West 14th Street and their Upper West Side location at 1981 Broadway.

Problems with the iPhone emboldened competitors like the Google Nexus One, the HTC Evo 4G, the Blackberry Bold 9700, and the HTC Droid Eris, and everything from special phone covers to duct tape has offered a solution to the antenna problem.

One product that has been selling particularly well has been the Antenna-aid produced by Brooklyn designers Szymon Weglarski and Jon Dorfman. A six-pack sells for $4.99 from their website http://antenn-aid.com/. Their tongue-in-cheek ad claims that the Antenna-aid is “colorful,” “works like magic,” and is so revolutionary that “Ben Franklin would approve.”
