With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
Last night, New York Times contributors Darcy Eveleigh and Rachel L. Swarns visited Barnard to discuss their recent book about what was left unseen and undiscovered of black history until the two decided to search through the NYT archives. Bwogger Miyoki Walker was there to catch the whole thing. Surprisingly enough, space, the deep sea, […]

Parents? In your dorm room? Sounds like a recipe for disaster! A first-year Bwogger shares fun tidbits from Parents Weekend, in chronological order. My parents arrived at 1 pm on Thursday but didn’t tell me they were safely in New York until 5:00 pm—a function of being unable to navigate their iPhones. Here’s a direct quote […]
Breaking news if you’re into this kind of thing: New York’s 27th congressional district will likely find earmarks a lot harder to come by soon, as a House investigative committee has found that longtime congressman and lord of Harlem Charles Rangel “violated a range of ethics rules.” The eighteen-month-long investigation was investigating whether the former […]
A visitor to the Livin’n’Learnin’ Center noticed something odd about a new poster welcoming students to Wallach 5. The floor’s new poster is ostensibly intended to help residents get to know New York by introducing them to all tha Big Applez‘ ethnic enclaves. You know, like the Upper West Side. The poster highlights neighborhoods across […]
Does anyone actually know what anthropology is? What does Evo love more: nationalization of oil or speaking at Columbia? Should GS deans be chosen in the same way as GS students–far too late? Did you know that, like, East 116th is TOTALLY less gentrified than, like, Columbia? I think she actually saw a poor person! […]
Last night, Bwog enjoyed the literary and cuisinary culture of the Latino-Caribbean with the volunteers and novice poets of Voices UnBroken. Bwog arrived to the Voices UnBroken Poetry Slam a little late last night, but there were still plenty of maduros to be eaten and plenty of amateur poets to be heard. The reading drew […]
Bwog correspondent Coogan Brennan caught up with chess legend Garry Kasparaov in Harlem this afternoon. United Civil Front leader and former world chess champion Garry Kasparov made an appearance at the Harlem Children’s Zone today starting at around 2 PM.

Harlem affordable housing: “The sugar on a sour pie.” On asthma: “Ninety percent of time is spent indoors.” Director: What “nobody else had was my unique view about stuff.” Columnist: “we’ve been doing so much, trying so much, and experiencing so much.” Reporter: “It’s clear that the Obama-Wright controversy rests on race.” Director, on the […]

It’s a sad day for artists and art enthusiasts: Today marks the final day of existence for the Triple Candie Art Gallery on 126th. Triple Candie was once—and still is, until 5 PM today—home to some of Harlem’s most promising young artists. To commemorate its 7-year history, the gallery is featuring a retrospective of its […]
In which Bwog correspondent Alex Weinberg survives to tell the tale. A few weeks ago, I found a small postcard on 114th Street. It read “No Dew, Nor Rain / No Pain, No Gain: A Three Year Boycott of Harlem,” and it explained that the Honorable James David Manning PhD, head of ATLAH World Missionary […]
In which Bwog freelancer Kate Linthicum discovers soul food that’s actually good for your soul. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was four, when my family’s mischievous Labrador puppy attacked my pet hen. Her name was Pearl, and she was the softest, sweetest chicken in the whole world. I stopped eating meat the day I […]
In which a Bwog freelancer attempts to find spirituality in tourist purgatory. At 2:00 AM last night, I set my alarm clock to wake me up at the obscene hour of 7:30 AM. The next morning, I was going to church. Specifically, I had two churches in mind. The first is the most famous church […]
He may have baby-sat New York as the crack epidemic left pipes and vials all over city sidewalks and the Crown Heights riots fissured West Indian-Hasidic relations in that neighborhood, but David Dinkins’ opinion still holds sway. A politician with firm roots in the Harlem political establishment, Dinkins wrote an op-ed in support of Columbia’s […]
