MapFirst we head East for Harlem For The Holidays, a new bazaar-like holiday marketplace that features unique businesses from the neighborhood. (NY1)

After that we head down to New Jersey, which, in terms of gay marriage, now has a chance to distance itself from New York. A metaphorical distance, of course. (1010WINS)

Next we travel all the way to Rio, where former mayor Rudy Giuliani has been named a security consultant for the 2016 Olympic Games. (Gothamist)
