New & Noteworthy: NYCStalled.com

At long last, a site documenting the other side of the New York City real estate boom! As you can see in the above screencap, north Brooklynites, our area is quite red. The mad genius behind this endeavor writes (in an email entitled “Weekly updates of stalled construction sites in NYC”):

You may be interested in this website…

To wit I replied:

Ha! This is awesome!!! Who do I send updates/images to???

Check out this roster of Bloomblight for yourself, north Brooklynites—and perhaps bring it to the attention of your elected officials?

George: East New York Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

George, 85, lives in a small RV that he parks in the same two places on the block. He is always sitting in his chair on the sidewalk, listening to the radio. Despite being open and friendly he has turned down request for photos “Until I get my hair cut and stop looking like a criminal.” Well today I was lucky. From Honduras (“not been back in fifty years”) he worked all his life on freighters in the Caribbean and S America, as an engineer. Retired the last thirty years he spends his time “talking to all the good people and supporting any NY team.”

“I don’t mind being old, because when you get to be my age, whatever regrets you may have are hard to remember.”

I tried to take a picture of them and sparkles cat, but Kibles was not a very willing model.

They also took some pretty nice pictures of me, that I will have to post one of these days.

Street Surfing: East New York Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

It was close to a hundred today so the hydrants were open. These kids had laid a plank in front of the spout and where “street surfing”. That and trying to charge passing cars 75 cent for a wash. As a business man I suggested they aim for the paper money and charge a dollar.

Ty-Shawn, Jaquan, Nahjee, and Dallas (I wrote it down) jumped at the chance for a picture. Now I have to bring back four copies of this picture and a Barbados flag (Dallas), a copy of the picture with sparkles (Nahjee), fruit soda (Jaquan) and a toy gun (Ty-Shawn). Got it.
