The Last Dirt Road In Manhattan & Scouting NY The other day, I was out scouting alleys, and decided to take a walk up to Broadway Alley, which runs from East 26th – 27th between Lex & 3rd. Broadway Alley doesn’t get much filming*, but I figured I’d take some pictures and see what the current status was. Broadway Alley has a pretty great alley look, with crumbling, grime-covered brick, tangles of fire escapes, graffiti and barbed wire. But as I walked down the alley, I noticed something I’d never seen before… …Was that dirt I was walking on? Is this where the pavement ends?

Head Scarf Tutorial After many requests, I finally made a tutorial on how to tie a simple head scarf. It's really, really easy. I did this without looking in the mirror, so that should tell you how easy it is. Let's get started! Start with a large, square scarf. Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle. Fold the corner down to about the middle, and then fold over again (but not all the way to the edge, because you want it to be a little thicker). Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the wrong side of the scarf (the part where you can see the folds) is against your head. Tie it in a loose knot at the front. Tuck the ends behind/underneath the scarf. Done!

You Will Be Googled Kevin Nakao is a guest contributor for Mashable and CEO of Meritshare. You can follow him on @knakao or on his blog. Chances are high that a recruiter or hiring manager will Google you online before offering you an interview or job. Search insiders tell me that non-celebrity people searches account for more than 10% of Google’s search volume. Here are five easy things you can do to manage your online reputation. 1. Admit it, we've all Googled our names. 2. When companies build an SEO strategy they look to own the first pages of results for their name, you should do the same. Get your Linkedin profile to show up first by making sure you have a custom URL with your name. Google knows Google, so company properties YouTube, Picasa and Google+ frequently show up in the first set of results for name searches. 3. Depending on the website, the instructions for removing or hiding results vary. 4. 5. Showcase your expertise in a blog post, answer a question on Quora or comment on a article.
