New York Yankees’ Giancarlo Stanton rocks MLB playoffs with epic 118.3 mph home run

This is the Giancarlo Stanton whom New York Yankees fans have been waiting to see for the past three seasons.

Stanton hit two home runs in Tuesday’s Game 2 of the Yankees’ division series against the Tampa Bay Rays — which New York ultimately lost 7-5 — and the second one was a legendary three-run blast off Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasnow, a 118.3 mph rocket in the fourth inning, an estimated 458 feet onto the walkway behind the seats in left-center. Stanton also homered in the second inning, a low liner down the right-field line that just cleared the fence.

Stanton’s second home run off Glasnow’s 97 mph fastball was just the 16th home run of the Statcast era (since 2015) clocked at 118 mph or higher — and he has eight of them.

Gonzalo Higuain had an eventful home debut for Inter Miami against New York City FC on Saturday night, but Miami lost 3-2 and the $7 million Argentine forward remains goalless and winless in two games with his new team.

The skies unloaded a driving rainstorm onto the Fort Lauderdale stadium late in the game, leaving the Inter Miami players drenched and demoralized as they left the field.

To make matters worse, coach Diego Alonso confirmed after the game that they will lose midfielder Rodolfo Pizarro for the next “four or five games” as he travels to Netherlands to play two friendlies with

The Best Celebrity Chef Kitchens Behind the New York City Wine & Food Festival

Andrew Zimmern

These days the James Beard Award–winning chef, TV host, and author is mostly cooking in the Kitchen Studio and Test Kitchen at the office of his production company and restaurant group, Intuitive Content and Passport Hospitality, which has massive firepower. “My favorite features are the flattop griddle on the cooktop in the rear, and the storage island that was designed with capacity to house all our tabletop appliances—and, most important, it contains our wine fridge, plate warmers, and utility cabinets.” Zimmern is in the midst of a home redesign that includes a drool-worthy new kitchen with “Puustelli custom cabinetry and a full Gaggenau suite that includes some incredible features like a wok burner, steam oven, and large baking oven. My favorite feature there is also my island, where I cut out cutting board–sized sections so that my work space is flat all the way across.” The chef has

Apartments With Privacy, Home Offices And Outdoor Space Command Higher Prices In New York City

After largely spending the last several months at home, New Yorkers who are still in the real estate market have certainly had time to narrow down their priorities. And they are prioritizing privacy and home offices as much as outdoor space, a new report shows. 

The report from real estate market data firm UrbanDigs, commissioned by Forbes, shows that homes in New York that were described in listings using words and phrases such as “privacy,” or that had home office or outdoor space, saw much less price flexibility, and also saw much higher median sale prices.

For example, the median sale price of units with listings that include the word “privacy” nearly doubled, from $1.58 million in April 2019

Lowe’s Is Bringing New York Fashion Week From Runways to Homes

Key insight:

  • Fashion and interior design are linked by storytelling and self-expression.

With large swaths of the U.S. still hunkered down at home, Lowe’s is teaming with leading fashion designers Jason Wu, Christian Siriano and Rebecca Minkoff to bring New York Fashion Week from the catwalks into the home.

The collaboration is among chief brand and marketing officer Marisa Thalberg’s efforts to reimagine the home improvement retailer since joining in February.

“One of things I love about being at a brand of this scale is it allows you to do things in a different way,” she told Adweek.

The decision to launch the admittedly unexpected partnership—pairing a home improvement store with clothing, rather than interior, designers—was born out of the insight that the connection between style and home has never been stronger, Thalberg said.

It hinges on two ideas: that the home is central to the thinking of the fashion

Mark Cunningham Creates a Chef’s Dream Kitchen in New York City

New York City isn’t exactly known for its generous kitchen space, but a professional chef’s needs go beyond the gloomy galley setups many urbanites are accustomed to at home. When one such culinary master and his husband called up designer Mark Cunningham for help with their duplex home in the West Village, he dreamed up a spin on the open-concept kitchen and living room.

Back-of-House Prep Area Behind a jib door built into the cabinetry, Cunningham designed a hyperfunctional butler’s pantry, which contains a coffee station, a second dishwasher, and a pull-down
stool to access ceiling-height storage. The space allows the homeowners to keep the main island clear while hosting.

You won’t find a sprawling white marble island or bare shelving here: With the space’s industrial bones, “the biggest thing was trying to bring warmth,” explains the designer, who worked with Michael Gilmore of Weddle Gilmore on the
