News Editor Lauren Kahme interviews the Co-Founder of The Testing Project, a grassroots movement advocating for essential workers’ protection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The summer is sliding by. Morton Williams is boycotting Turkish products. (Gothamist) This guy turned his GS admissions essay into a Kindle book, so we bought it. Highlight: “I have never smoked a cigarette, drank beer, or used any illegal drugs.” (Amazon) All old campus buildings still have asbestos, and are continuing treatments begun this spring. […]
It appears as if Halloween season is upon us, as evidenced by Morton Williams:
For the past four years, the good people at Morton Williams have printed “Welcome Class of 2011” on the bottom of their receipts. You may have graduated, Class of 2011, but we promise you’ll always be welcomed back. From senior wisdoms and graduation speeches to inspirational bottle caps and your old man’s sage words, it […]
In the latest issue of The Blue & White, available this week, staff writer Sylvie Krekow discovers enlightenment while in line at Morton Williams. Calling itself the “University Super Store,” the Morton Williams supermarket on 116th Street and Broadway has a storied, eight-year history on campus as the home of overpriced goods, under-enthusiastic employees, and walls […]
Bwog’s Japanese Culture in Small, Enclosed Units Specialist Liz Naiden has evaluated the sushi of Morningside, and she has some surprising results. Pre-made sushi is the best food from a box (though only the second best thing that can be in a box) there ever could be. It’s refreshing, healthy, readily available, and you can […]
It’s after midnight, and you’re tired. While Bwog can’t help you create your own individually tailored regimen of stimulants, we can provide your best nearby source of stimulating drinks to get you through that all-nighter: Morton, JJ’s or Hamdel. The four drinks: Red Bull, generic coffee, Lipton tea, and Coke or Pepsi all of which […]
As the effects of the recession sink in, your dollars become even more valuable. “The Market Basket” will save you the time of remembering where to get the best bang for your buck. We start with a simple question: Morton or Westside? Ah, the perennial question: convenience or Neil Diamond? Today, we take another look […]
While tripping on home tonight, Bwog noticed a curious sight: a small woman in a puffy coat unloading a plastic bag full of apples onto the bales of recycling outside Morton Williams. What’s more, she was being filmed, by people with professional-looking cameras and everything. Her name is Janet Kalish, and she’s a freegan, and […]
Tipster Josh Mathew informs Bwog that Westside Market “will soon be using only biodegradable plastic bags and that customers will also have the option of purchasing reusable bags for 99 cents.” An environmentally-sound way to transport your fresh, delicious, and fairly-priced groceries from 110th to your dorm. How lovely. Meanwhile, what say you, Morton Williams? […]
Not to be outdone by Morton Williams’ preemptive homage to Halloween, local pharmacy Duane Reade is pioneering the Christmas bandwagon. Morton Williams has the opportunity to counter-strike and capitalize on Reade’s Thanksgiving omission. West Side Market, presumably, is too busy providing the community with fresh food at affordable prices to deign to participate.
