Via an anonymous tipster:

The New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a male wanted in connection with a forcible touching that occurred at approximately 0300 hours on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at the intersection of Freeman Street and Manhattan Avenue in the confines of the 94 Precinct.

The suspect is an Hispanic male, 5’8″, 200 lbs, wearing blue hooded sweatshirt, and blue jeans.

See attached video (captured after the first assault, and before the physical altercation).

Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Laundry Day

Panty Rainbow! nys

In New York City “privacy” is a relative thing. CASE IN POINT: this prayer flag-esque arrangement of panties which tickled my fancy. I imagine for the next week or so when I knock around the neighborhood I will be wondering who the festively-pantied person is. Simple pleasures, folks…
