The Freehand 4x3



Alyssa Powell/Business Insider


  • A new addition to Manhattan’s Flatiron District, the Freehand New York is perfect for budget-conscious travelers who want convenience and personality from their accommodations, without paying several hundred per night.
  • The building itself isn’t new — it was once a hotel beloved by writers, as well as a dorm for art students. Rooms and public spaces are filled with original, commissioned artwork to honor this creative spirit. 
  • Nightly rates start under $200 and range from cozy, budget-conscious rooms with bunk beds, to spacious plush suites. I spent a night in a Corner King room and it’s one of our favorite NYC hotels for 2020.

Closed restaurant donates kitchen space to La Soupe, a charity helping to feed families

BLUE ASH, Ohio — Two days ago, the La Soupe team was working out of a small building on Round Bottom Road. They were running out of space for their radically changing mission.

Before COVID-19, La Soupe rescued and transformed perishable food donations for hungry kids so they’d have good, nutritious meals on weekends. Since the coronavirus pandemic, the mission has expanded from just kids to entire families.

Then, a restaurateur, who was forced to close his business after the COVID-19 panic, re-purposed his space, opening it to the nonprofit with a mission to feed others.

“It’s huge,” La Soupe founder Suzy DeYoung said. “It’s a huge space – so we can social distance here.”

They couldn’t hit that mark without a bigger place to work – a problem that was solved after a call to action on Facebook and on TV last week.

If your house needs a little TLC, but you don’t have the cash to give it what it needs, then a loan could be a good route to take. After all, you could save up and make the repairs over time, but houses really can’t be ignored for long.

Put off repairs for a year or two and a bit of peeling flashing around your chimney can suddenly spiral into inner structural damage and mold to boot.

Many long-term homeowners will agree that houses are really much like babies who need constant pampering before they’ll let you sleep soundly through the night.

Whatever your home renovation needs must be, find out home improvement loans that can help you get the right financing, plus point you in the right direction of the best lenders out there.

How public bathrooms will work when we reopen America.

Two urinals, one taped off for social distancing.

In the past few months, Americans have discovered the astonishing variety of things that can happen in a parking lot. Teach a seminar? Yes. Get married? Yes. Go to church? Amen.

This may not surprise anyone who has been to a college football tailgate, which proves that only your imagination can limit what happens in the parking lot. But there is one way that we cannot turn America into one big tailgate while we wait out the pandemic: We are not going to spend the summer peeing outside.

The car is pretty good at social distancing, but don’t mistake car culture for a coronavirus cure. Even drivers have to go. The primary confined space that Americans uneasily share with strangers isn’t mass transit. It’s the public bathroom.
