New York Shitty Turns Four!

You know what they say:

Time flies when you’re having fun.

I can’t honestly say operating New York Shitty has been fun 100% of the time. It has on occasion entailed pulling all nighters, grabbing my camera, tossing on my coat and heading out when I would just as well stay home, etc. In short, it can and is hard work. But it is work I find rewarding nonetheless: if I can in some small way serve my community by operating this web site so be it. Besides, most of the time it IS fun.

I would like to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to my readers and the many folks who have sent me contributions over the years. They are greatly appreciated— even if I do not always use them. On that note I am going to share a nifty piece of New Yorkiana I found yesterday at the junk shop. Enjoy!

Thanks again— and here’s to another year!

Miss Heather

  10. Happy Birthday to New York Shittay!

    Over the years, I picked up numerous letters scrawled on notebook paper dumped on the G or L train floor. The best ones are from schoolkids usually at Hoyt-Schemerhorn. My favorite is between two 7th graders, one boy, one girl. The boy is trying to act all smooth and suave (but in a gawky 13 y/o desperate kid of way) to try to get the girl. The girl responds to each “c’mon baby, yo baby” in the way the only 13 y/o girls can do. Its a really funny read. One of these days I’ll find it in my archives again.
