Transatlantic Perspectives + Dialogue + Collaboration

Station to Station is the first independent transatlantic cultural magazine to facilitate dialogue between New York and Berlin. Through reviews of under-the-radar urban culture and conversations with cultural workers, S2S is dedicated to provide a forum for alternative voices from both sides of the big pond.

S2S is as much about on-the-spot coverage as it is about community building. We offer a variety of resources to Berliners & New Yorkers who split their time between both cities, or those who are thinking of re-locating from one to the other.

She studied Art History  and Visual Culture Theory (NYU). She is currently working on an exhibition about gentrification called First they took New York then they take Berlin.

    Grew up on Soccer Made In Germany. Loved listening to Toby Charles. Man, great memories. I even still have my Soccer Made In Germany pennant Transtel sent me when I wrote them back in the early ’80s. I’ll forever be Munching Gladbach thanks to that show.

    Soccer Made in Germany –
    Mike, I think we may have watched it on the same PBS station out of St. Louis. I grew up in the sticks of mid-MO and didn’t even have a youth league to play in back in the late 70’s, so I had to settle for being a ball boy for the local college a couple blocks away. Everything you said in this article is spot on. I can still remember giggling at the TV when Toby Charles mentioned the team lined up in front of a free kick as “guarding their testes” as only he would. Good and funny memories.

    Common types of cases contributing on the home being considered vacant are:o House sits empty
    for 3 months even though the owners have moved out of state and therefore are looking forward to the existing home to sell.
