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.

Or: What is wrong with this picture?
Today the Mister took the day off and we opted to take a sojourn into “the city”. Our first stop was Union Square. There we saw a number of fascinating things. Follows are a few selections.
This young lady who— for reasons which do not need to be outlined— elicited a great deal of “interest”.
And this fellow, Felix Morelo, drawing faces (as he is known to do) with sidewalk chalk. They lead to the “Kissing Spot”.
Here he is giving yours truly a “thumbs up”.
And here he is getting a verbal reprimand from this public space’s rent-a-cops and parks staff. They were not amused.
It was explained to Mr. Morelo that he is not to engage in this (clearly) disruptive, destructive behavior because they would have to clean it up.
Once again, gentle readers: he was drawing a “Kissing Spot”. With sidewalk chalk. You want to know why yours truly dislikes public/private parks “partnerships”, gentle readers? You just saw it. Sure, the proponents this arrangement like to extol upon its financial benefits. However, there is a down-side to this kind of thing: “gate-keepers” are brought in to enforce “standards”— and those standards can (and often do) reach this level of utter absurdity. Sue Bee said it best:
Sidewalk chalk. Are you fucking kidding me?

Occasionally— no, make that quite often— I like to indulge my inner teenager. Thus New York Shitty wishes to give a salute to what appears to be the John Holmes of produce. Who said being a vegetarian was boring. In any case I give this wonder of nature two enthusiastic thumbs up (one had to hold the camera)!

While pasting up the face, a homeless gentleman decided we should collaborate and covered the figure to the left. “Make [street art.]” (14th St & 6th Ave; uptown F/M/L)…
