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…

It would appear these missives have finally made their way to this side of the East River. Not a minute too soon, I will add…

This value-added specimen (which a fellow we’ll call “J” was kind enough to bring to my attention) hails from Nassau Avenue between Diamond and Newell Street. Lest you are wondering, gentle readers, it is still there as of the writing of this post. Cheers!

I am pleased to announce that the airplane bottle art project is well along the way to completion!
It would appear after a visit and thorough inspection courtesy of New York’s Bravest*, the Salvation Army is closed until further notice. UPDATE, 3:41 pm: word on the street is the Salvation Army’s space experienced flooding. Once this is remediated they will reopen. We’ll see…
*It is my understanding that 977 Manhattan Avenue was inspected as well. Why does this stuff always happen while I am on vacation?
Yes folks, nothing says “Welcome home” from a vacation in New Mexico quite like a, this, tenement on wheels. What’s more, an eagle-eyed bystander (who is clearly a connoisseur of fine motor vehicles/”rides”) was kind enough to bring to my attention the car parked behind it.
A retired police car festooned with not one— but two— American flags. I have given this the moniker “the Bluesmobile” (for obvious reasons)…

The facial expression pretty much says it all. Ever wondered what 949 days of non-stop “oversight” of Franklin Street and Greenpoint Avenue will do to you? Well, now you know. Like the hat, however…
