What is the most important thing to look for in a night away? Is it luxury beds? Maybe an exotic locale? Or maybe you just look for a really nice bath close by.


1 Hotel in Brooklyn has what's being called the best bath in New York City. The Riverhouse Suite's bathroom is the stuff of dreams. While the 2000 sq ft. room itself is lovely, the bathroom caught the eye of writer Brennan Kilbane.

1 Hotel is rather proud of this bathroom.



With a tub carved out of a single block of granite, filtered water pumped in piping hot, and a floor to ceiling window overlooking the so-called Greatest City in the World, it's easy to see why Kilbane would gush over it.

All for the low, low price of $7000 a night.







It's certainly not for everyone. In fact, with that price, one could argue it's only for a very specific group of people. The luxury of the bath still makes it difficult to justify the premium pricing.

New York City is known for its premium pricing. People will split rent in an apartment that would cost a third of its pricing anywhere else. It is a city of scarce real estate and costs reflect that.

Even with all that in mind, who is this for? If you have the money to pay $7000 a night, wouldn't you already have a personal luxury bath? And if you can't afford it, why tease yourself with the possibility.

Maybe we need to leave New York alone for a while.






If you think the price is absolutely worth it, you can check out the going rates here. For the rest of us, we'll find a staycation a little more in our budget.

There's little more frustrating than a mystery that was never solved.

The victim's family never gets closure, a killer may still be at large, and our minds continue to spin trying to figure out how something happened.

Perhaps most frustrating of all is knowing that there is an explanation for it out there somewhere.

And, there are people desperate to find it.

All languages have certain words that roll so beautifully off the tongue.

It's no wonder why listening to vocal arias from operas and oratorios–which are typically in languages other than English–can be such a satisfying experience.

Examples coming to mind that are pleasant to the ear include, "Un Bel Di Vedremo" from the Italian opera Madame Butterfly and "Au fond du temple saint"–a duet from the French opera, Les pêcheurs de perles.

Movies are one of the greatest things in the world. I honestly believe that. And I think a lot of people will agree.

However, when talking about movies, a lot of people aren't thinking about documentaries.

Documentaries are movies about the real world, where the cameras capture candid moments, experts are consulted on the subject matter, and the end result is the viewers always learn something new.

My favorite is the documentary series Wild Wild Country, which never ceases to entertain me, no matter how many times I rewatch it. I’m not the only one who loves them, of course.

My best friend found her whole worldview had changed after she saw Blackfish for the first time. My brother pulled up his entire GPA after doing a report on Jon Cartwright’s Lighting Up the World, and of course, no health class was complete without a viewing of Supersize Me.

Redditors love documentaries too and were ready to share their favorites.
