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!

Here’s the deal: I have not gotten out much lately. Part of this is due to the fact it has been very, SERIOUSLY cold. Thankfully I have had my snow globe project(s) to keep me busy. Today, being as it reached a downright sultry 41 degrees, merited a walk. It was the first time I have hit the “Catwalk” (READ: Bedford Avenue) since New Years Day. During the previously-mentioned sojourn I spied a charbroiled mattress on North 7th Street right outside the Bedford Avenue stop of the L. Finding this interesting I took a couple of photos. Without further ado, here they are!
Now let’s jump forward to January 19, 2015. Guess what? It is still there.
What’s more, I managed to capture something I honestly thought I had missed: a fellow giving himself a face/hair check courtesy of one of our shiny new(er) buildings!
Here’s looking at you, kid.

This splendid specimen (which I have learned has since been removed— too bad as it is perfect for enjoying this unseasonably mild weather) hails from Starr Street and Woodward Avenue and comes courtesy of Queens Crap. Very nice!

South 5th Street
It’s amazing how those illegal clothing drop off boxes seem to attract illegal dumping…
in more ways than one. Trust me: this smelled worse than it looks (which is pretty darned bad).
Note the “teepee” in the background. These were not indigenous to the region “back in the day”. There were no “buffalo” in New York. I suppose the gesture (raising awareness about Native Americans?) is a nice enough one— but why not do so in a geographically, historically relevant manner?

Signs of recreation as discovered during today’s sojourn in parts Bushwick and beyond. Yours truly can only wonder if this will be next…

Those of you who are following such things (and you know who you are) should be advised there is a bounty of feral furniture out there simply waiting for a new home— maybe yours? NOTE/CAVEAT: Supply is seemingly endless and yours truly assumes no responsibility whatsoever for any “value-added” these items may harbor.
