Sometimes the photograph isn’t quite right…
but the love makes up for it. I love a man who loves animals. Sweet!

This hitherto unknown superhero was going about his grim business this afternoon in front of 101 Bedford Avenue. I have no reason as to why his special powers were required and quite frankly I do not think I want to know. I am simply happy to know the Cesspool Man exists. Why not come up and see us in Greenpoint some time, my new favorite superhero? I can think of a few locations which need your special touch. Now if you do not mind I am off to invent and ignite the “shit signal”. I’ll leave it someone who is musically inclined to drum up a theme song…*
Props/Credits: go out to the Mister for spotting this gem. Ten years of being together has clearly educated him as to what makes the “missus” happy. HINT: it ain’t flowers. I wonder if there is— dare I say— a Mrs. Cesspool Man or even a Cesspool Woman? Hands off folks: the latter sinecure, if vacant, is MINE.
*However, I have the following to recommend (a little ditty based off of the Candy Man”):
The Cesspool Man can because he mixes it with sludge and makes the world smell good…

If there is one thing I have observed in my years living in the Garden Spot, it is this; its citizens are thoughtful and often quite resourceful. As the neighborhood has “changed” this has diminished somewhat— but as the above photo attests some of that “community spirit” persists. We you have just looked at, gentle readers, is an ad hoc piece of shuttle bus seating installed on the western side McGuinness Boulevard just a hop skip from Kent Street.
The selection of chair is welcoming, even downright cheerful. Just want a tired commuter would want to see while negotiating our mass transit system, In terms of style (if not capacity), it far surpassses its kindred in Long Island City. But would I expect anything less of our fair burgh? Of course not! Last but hardly least —the piece de resistance, if you will— is additional measure taken so as to discourage theft.
This is, naturally, a coordinating/”re-purposed” red brassiere. I give this arrangement two enthusiastic New York Shitty thumbs up. Bravo!
