Our L.A. friends can all pull the same trump card to argue that their city beats New York: “Well, the weather is so much better.” There’s little we can say to that. Yes, by the time we’re mounting layer upon layer around Christmas time, California is getting nice and mild. And what’s more, they never Read More
For a third straight year, the Men’s Final is being pushed to a Monday.
The only person that is happy about this is Novak Djokovic who gets an extra day of rest to prepare for Rafael Nadal after his exhausting 5-set match with Roger Federer.
Everyone else? What a disaster. In 2008, when the men’s Read More

Here we go again!
We’re three hours until the Men’s Final will begin, and for a three straight year, rain may force the Men’s Final to be pushed to Monday afternoon. For perspective, in the Open era, this had never happened until 2008. Then it happened again last Read More
Get that wind-breaker on because it is most definitely not U.S. Open weather. When you look around at those semi-bright yet very cloudy skies, and all those jackets, sweaters and hoodies out in the grounds, it feels like a New York October playoff baseball game for the Wawrinka-Youzhny quarterfinal match this afternoon (first set right Read More
From my humble perch, I can report to you that it was a very windy day. It felt even windier than it did this past Saturday when everyone was freaking out about the wind. Also, it felt cool enough to be an October night.
But what do I know? Let’s talk to the players on Read More
Kaia Kanepi just finished former U.S. Open finalist Jelena Jankovic in straight sets. The wind was a very big factor.
First, let me give you a report from the ground. It’s crazy out there! I almost want to compare it to an early April Mets game where it’s cold, and Gary, Keith and Ron spend Read More
It’s our first rain delay at the 2010 Open. Well, rain is an overstatement. Sprinkles, really. It’s no-umbrella rain. But there’s an across-the-board rain delay at the Open right now, and players have been pulled off their respective courts (that photo shows you Ashe, but Andy Murray isn’t playing there). John Isner is playing, and Read More
New York One’s man in the papers (and Justin Bieber look-alike) Pat Kiernan doesn’t like the cover of Newsday today. He would like to see something a little splashier.
“Newsday’s editors have lost their minds,” wrote Mr. Kiernan on his Pat’s Papers blog this morning. “With Hurricane Earl barreling toward the eastern end Read More
Apparently the closing of several New York boutiques over the last few months–Kira Plastinina, Hollywould, Te Casan–can be attributed not just to the poor economy, but also to the temperature.
Earlier today, the Daily Transom received the results of a study conducted by Weather Trends International, which works with Read More
Danny Meyer’s hallowed outdoor dining destination Shake Shack reopened shortly after noon on Thursday — the coldest frickin’ day of the year.
A planned heating system (as earlier reported by Eater) was still under construction. Yet even windchill in the single digits couldn’t hold back the Shack heads in Madison Square Park.
"I was Read More
