If you look carefully when this gent gets up you will notice he has had an, um, accident. This gives a whole new meaning to “doing it in the road”. Just another Monday afternoon in the Garden Spot, folks…

UPDATE, 7:40 p.m.: I have just gotten the 411 on what led up to this event from a pair of eyewitnesses on the scene. Apparently this chap was in a physical altercation with anther individual. He was struck and managed to spill his beverage. Upon hitting (sitting on) the street he shouted:

You spilled my liquor!

I wasn’t able to get much in the way of information from this young woman given the din of truck traffic passing behind us. However, she said when completed this missive will read “Plan Ahead” and it should be completed by Wednesday!

UPDATE, 8:00 p.m.: Here’s the 411 on this per nbART’s Facebook page:

On Wednesday, August 31st, the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (nbART) the NYC Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Open Space Alliance present Plan Ahead, a knitted installation by internationally recognized Knit Graffiti artist Magda Sayeg. Over the next year, Plan Ahead will blanket 300 iron rods located on Kent Avenue between South 5th and 6th Streets underneath the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn, NY. The materials produced for this project exceeded 600 sq ft and took over 200 hours to knit.

On August 31st at 6:00p.m., nbART, DOT and OSA will unveil Sayeg’s artwork for media and public viewing; a reception will follow at IndieScreen – 289 Kent Avenue at South 2nd Street – and include an open bar from 7-8 and Brooklyn’s own Brooklyn Oenology and Coney Island Catering offering wine and food throughout the evening. $10 suggested donation at the door.

From The New York Shitty Photo Pool: Eschete

Eshete: Cobble Hill Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

I went to the waterfront to see how Eshete was doing as the hurricane approached. Not surprisingly, despite being in an evacuation zone, he was there taking care of the cats. I asked him if he needed anything, he said no, and then we chatted about cats (his are named Nubia, Mogadishu, Venice, Puerto Rico, Congo, and Damascus. He is a geography nut)

“The cats are like lions, very intelligent. Mysterious creatures, the Pharaohs buried them. Independent, but if they need you they come. Cats are beautiful intelligent comedians”
