G Is For…

Gee, where the hell is it?

The above-depicted is a map the MTA has issued apprising its patrons of subway service slated to be restored tomorrow, November 1st, 2012. As you can see our beloved Crosstown Local is, um, MIA. Or would that be MII (Missing In Inaction)? In any case, those of you who have been enjoying a furlough from your daily commute (and want to forward it to your supervisors) can grab the link for this map by clicking here.*

UPDATE, 7:25 p.m.: Here’s a Service Alert from the ever awesome Chair of Community Board 1′s Transportation Committee.

Thanks Willie!

UPDATE, 11:32 p.m.: I cannot believe I forgot that the East River Ferry will be resuming service tomorrow as well! You can view their schedule by clicking here.

 

*Props go out to the incomparable Bitchcakes for bringing this to my attention. Thanks!

New York Shitty Day Ender: A Stroll In Queens

Reflection

As promised, here are some highlights from yesterday’s sojourn around Queens. Before we proceed I’d like to tender a few thoughts/teasers:

  1. I stumbled upon not one but two clownmobiles. Slap happy after four hours of walking I have fun with the owners of one of them.
  2. Just as in the fine borough of Kings if a patch of drying cement is left unattended in Queens someone will draw penis on it.
  3. After finding another “adult film” discarded by the railroad tracks on Skillman Avenue yours truly has decided to start a “found porn” map. Is anyone with me on this?

Without further ado, here it is. Enjoy!

Quicklink: This Is Why We’re Angry

This item comes courtesy of my friend at Sheepshead Bites. Please give it a read as the content makes it all too clear how some neighborhoods get more diligent treatment than others. On that note I am going to crib— with credit— Sheepshead Bites work so as to illustrate the difference between my street and Bloomberg’s.

“Patience” my ass. This B62 bus (and numerous others) parked on our thoroughfares are not only inconveniences which afflict working Brooklynites but Long Island Cityites as well. But why should that matter? We do not live in Manhattan.

Well done, Bloomturd!

Care to juxtapose your block with Bloomies? Send me a 300 by 400 pixel jpeg and I’ll do the rest!

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: “Hollywood” Via Queens

This vision hails, appropriately enough, from Broadway. Those of you who want to see your name (among other things) in lights, here’s your golden opportunity. My advice: get the money— cash only— upfront.
