How Tyler Tringas Uses MakeSpace To Live Like James Bond
Tyler Tringas was living out of a backpack and working off his laptop in SouthEast Asia when he had to make a quick trip back to the States to attend a friend’s wedding in Vermont. This probably sounds like a logistical nightmare, but Tyler had a plan. He landed in New York City, met a MakeSpace driver in the lobby of his hotel, unpacked his tuxedo, and went to the wedding the following morning. No sweat.
Meet Collin Hughes, The Photographer Who Calls MakeSpace “Home”
Over Skype, I ask, “Do you think of yourself as a technomad or a minimalist, in terms of the way you live?” Professional photographer Collin Hughes, who has worked with everyone from Nike to Wired, laughs and then responds, “Most definitely,” as he turns his laptop’s camera from his face towards four small duffle bags in a pile on the floor. “This is everything I own right now besides what’s in MakeSpace,” he says from off camera.

New Yorkers Resort To Sleeping Their Babies In Bathrooms And Closets

Well, it’s taken an incredibly long time, but it looks like winter is finally, truly, wonderfully, superbly gone from New York City. May is pretty late to be thinking about spring cleaning, but what are you gonna do?
How To Break Up In 2014
It’s 2014; we live on our smartphones, our relationships are as textual as they are physical, and as impersonal as it sounds, people actually break up over gchat. At this point it’s pretty much a cliché to send a breakup text, and in New York City, where no one has a car and apartments are in short supply, dealing with a breakup is especially hard.
