In case you're not familiar with Don't Miss This in NYC, I've rounded up some of the most interesting lifestyle stories in NYC recently published in the NewsBreak Contributor network to share with you.

How neighborhoods in NYC were named

Why I love this: I've lived in Manhattan for years and even I don't know the history behind all the neighborhoods' names. That's where NewsBreak Contributor Bridget Mulroy has the info. For instance, we don't know exactly why Lincoln Square is called Lincoln Square, even though we know it received that name in 1906.

Our 5 favorite wine bars in NYC

Why I love this: I love beer and cocktails as much as the next guy, but nothing is quite as sippable as a decent glass of wine, especially in the right environment with good company. NewsBreak Contributor East Coast Traveler has five great wine bars where you can get your sip on any day of the week.

The NYC heiress who vanished from Fifth Avenue, never to be seen again

Why I love this: In case you've never heard of Dorothy Arnold, NewsBreak Contributor ONLY USA has the details on one of NYC's most enduring mysteries. On Dec. 12, 1910, the socialite and heiress left her family home to run a few errands, bumped into a friend outside a bookstore at 27th Street and Fifth Ave and then disappeared, never to be seen again.

Bally's is gambling on bringing a casino to the Bronx

Why I love this: NewsBreak Contributor Welcome2TheBronx has the story on Bally's casino proposal for the Bronx. In short, there's no reason developers and gaming companies shouldn't be looking at the Bronx for NYC's first casino. There are a lot of other great proposals in the works for one of New York state's three downstate casino licenses, but of all the boroughs and groups vying for them, a casino just might be most beneficial to the Bronx, potentially bringing 15,000 construction jobs and 3,500 permanent jobs.
