New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: The Writing On The Wall

One can always depend on this building (which is located at 4th Avenue and East 10 Street) for interesting commentary…

Looks like someone is pressing the dairy and frozen food sections into service as a buffet. Again.

Urban Artifact: 23rd Street

Me to the Mister* upon discovering this exotic and most unexpected item:

Behold, a sacred relic of the Cherohonkee tribe!

This one’s for you, Pa Heather.

*Who I would like take a moment to thank. Had there not been some, um, confusion between Queensbridge and Queensboro Plaza on his part— and I was not feeling like a bigger jackass than usual and decided to let him learn the hard way— we would not have needed to walk down this thoroughfare so as to catch the B62. I served as the Mister’s guide through this “uncharted territory”. Most of this was done in silence for reasons I think need no explanation—but I digress. Had we not walked down this street, we would not have happened upon this most exceptional urban artifact (which I have determined to be a “shamanistic shit stick” of the Cherohonkee tribe which is a member of the Trustifarian Nation).

This Jeff Boss fellow has a lot on his mind. Exactly what this stuff is, I cannot say I comprehend. However, he may be onto something— however hyperbolic— regarding Christine Quinn and “stop and Frisk”. Hey, even a broken clock tell the correct time twice a day…

Urban Artifact, Part II: Bathing Beauties

I encountered the above tableau on Huron Street while taking Ma and Pa Heather out to dinner this evening. They depart our fair city tomorrow, thus I was very pleased that they got to behold some bona fide Garden Spot magic before their departure. Methinks they were not as enamored of my find as I was. So much for “taste”. Anyway, the fellows sitting nearby (on stools, milk crates, etc.— those who reside on or near Manhattan Avenue between Huron and India will know exactly about whom I write) told me I was the sixth person they had seen photograph this exquisite piece of Greenpoint glory. No surprise there…

Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Impromptu Buffet At The C-Town

This evening the Mister and I, feeling peckish, made a trip to the grocery store. It would appear we were not the only ones.

Who were hungry, that is. Nothing says “givin’ it to the man” 11222 style quite like eating his grapes…

Greenpoint, you ROCK!
