Long Island City Photos Du Jour: There Goes The Neighborhood
When I walk by buildings such as this (which is located at 4507 Center Boulevard) I often wonder what kind of people live in them. More often than not the answer is as follows: people who are younger, richer and better looking than yours truly. That’s the way the proverbial cookie crumbles, I suppose. I have long since accepted the sad fact life is not fair.
Anyhoo, when I glanced at the parking garage next to this edifice I spotted something interesting. Something that forced me to rethink my initial assessment of buildings of this ilk— or more specifically the people who inhabit them. Without further ado, here it is.
The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw the above vehicle was:
Is this shilling what I think it is shilling?
As soon as I got home I got online to find out.
The answer is a resounding “YES!” I strongly recommend each and every person reading this tome peruse Vibe Rider’s video page. The Daytona 2004 “Screaming Orgasm Contests” (CAVEAT: NSFW) are particularly compelling if I may so so myself.* Perhaps Long Island City is the place for yours truly after all? In any case I’d like to humbly suggest that the MTA give these fine folks a contract? We G train/B62/B43 riders could use a few miles of smiles!
