This discovery, as made today on 31st Street in Queens, is dedicated to Robert Scarano. You see, gentle readers, he (in part thanks to Curbed*) saw fit to comment on my site recently.
It would appear my post about 214 Franklin Street being converted into a hotel perturbed his granite-topped, sub-zero eminence. I suppose since Mr. Scarano cannot file his own plans anymore he has to occupy his time somehow. And he has elected to while away the time by commenting on my site!
I have been called a great many things in my life, but “right wing” is a new one. This one’s for you, “Scarano”! You are to architecture and north Brooklyn what blankets were to the Siege of Fort Pitt.
*To whose editor I wrote a “thank you” email stating my gratitude. Clearly my message got to the “right” people.

A fulsome feral fella from Judge Street.
A pampered pussy just down the block.
Garfield in bondage via a truck grill a little further down. Maujer Street, methinks.
Naturally I had to check in on my favorite feral cat Callie. So I headed east on Meserole Street. Therein I discovered the “Cat Hotel”!
Alas, neither she nor her “friend” Peter were to be found. However, her on-again/off-again companion from across the street was holding court.
He’s one handsome— and thankfully ear-tipped— fellow.
And last, but hardly least, this lass.
She put on quite a show for yours truly— and in return got ample rubbins!

Although I am totally certain Frank Jump has already covered this (because he has a Jedi master sense of such things), I am linking to his wonderful blog anyway. I want to give a shout-out of gratitude to the fellow working on this site who humored my shutter-bugging. He totally understood how ironic this was given Equal Pay Day came to pass just a week ago…

While quite a stretch I am posting this anyway. Why, you ask? Because anyone who would go to this amount of trouble to recover a lost pet deserves to have a leg (or would that be tail or whisker?) up! I found the above flier at the intersection of 31st Street and Broadway. If you have seen Ellie June or know of her whereabouts please contact her very concerned “people” at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!
