The things one sees in Williamsburg nowadays. For those of you who may not be in the know, the area around where this photos was taken (91 North 10 Street) is, depending on one’s point of view, either glorified pile of rubble or one giant construction site. This being August it is hot, quite dusty and of course: very loud. So you can imagine my surprise when I walked around the corner of Wythe Avenue onto North 10 Street nice and early this morning and stumbled upon this vision: a woman, tuned out and coffee in tow, meditating. In the background is (or at least was) Vice magazine’s office. To the right, yet another yuppie farm in progress. Need I write anything more? No, I think not.

By and large my inbox is pretty boring. Press releases mostly. Eric Adams is by and large the most prolific. However when my own sister-in-law stumbles upon a find such as this— and thinks of me— quite frankly, I am touched. She writes:
…at first worried maybe you would be offended…
Quite to the contrary. I have been called and/or likened to much worse things.
In closing, if Reverend Jen (or her friends) are paying attention; I have brought Reverend Jen’s work to my sister in law’s attention. She very much wants the proprietress of the Lower East Side Troll Museum herself to see this work of art. It does, by all appearances, seem to be a painting of the kind of trolls Jen collects and loves. Make it happen, Internet hive mind!

Hmm. Something about this article seems eerily familiar. Oh wait, I remember! I emailed the good news about Jonathan and his $99.00 a night RV (all the way down to the baby wipes) on July 19th to Queens Crap. 10:34 PM, to be precise.
Queens Crap, in turn, published it. YESTERDAY. To whom shall I send an invoice for my research Ms. Dai and/or DNA.info?
UPDATE, 10:17 PM: it would appear that Curbed has given proper attribution
(if not a link-back) to the proper sources. Ms. Dai has been asked for comment. Repeatedly. *chirp* *chirp*
UPDATE, July 22nd 1:32 PM: It would appear that Gothamist and the New York Daily News have jumped on the band wagon. So to speak. I have been assured by Ms. Carlson the Gothamist article will be amended so as to reflect the true sources. This leaves the latter. As for Ms. Dai, she claims that the editorial staff at DNA.info made her drop the sources. Pretty funny since, after being called on it, they have seen fit to mention them now. This is shit you, as “consumers” of “news”, should think about…
