Help me find a store in Carnegie Hill New York that sells cool ties imported from Japan. I read a review in a hotel magazine *Gotham?) and they looked perfect for a gift I need to buy, but I lost the magazine! The store may have been called "Seige" or something similar. Google can't seem to help me! Please help, I'm only in town for today (Saturday!). Thanks!

My girlfriend and I miss the countryside of upstate New York where we went to school. Specifically, we long for the region's excellent, home-made, freshly pressed, piping hot, unpasteurized [!] apple cider. We're now in New York City looking for that wonderfully nostalgic autumn taste. Where should we go?

Last month in the New York Times I saw an image of Humphrey Bogart from his classic film "Treasure of the Sierra Madre", but the picture was animated/rotoscoped, in the same style as the recent "Scanner Darkly". What was this from, who is the artist, and how can I see it? I do not know if the image in the paper was a shot from an entire animated version of the film(which would be awesome!), or just an artist's rendition of a single shot from the film. I saw this image in a section about art exhibits and happenings to attend in the month of July/Aug in New York. I'm a huge Bogart fan, any New Yorkers out there who can help me?
