This is a short time-lapse of the obnoxious EDGE building in Williamsburg taken from my apartment window in Greenpoint, Brooklyn… It spans approximately 12 hours, as my camera battery conked out and I don’t have a power supply yet to keep it running any longer.
God am I grateful I do not have to look at THAT every day!
I have often wondered why the MTA does not host “meet your station manager” days for the Crosstown Local (as they do for other subway lines like our tonier sister the L). Initially I chalked this up to the Transit Authority’s desire not to have their employees screamed at and pommeled with brickbats by a very angry public. Last night at Metropolitan Avenue, however, I finally learned the truth: the very G train itself is more than happy to field inquiries from concerned commuters. What’s more, this four car wonder will put it in writing!
Behold the Crosstown Local wailing wall. It is located at the southern end of the Smith – 9th bound platform.
Dear G Train
Well sorry about those things i said about you last week
But the thing is, you are never here for me Seriously why? Please please
come here pick me up, be there for me? is that (so much to ask?)
I don’t have much time, but you should know that whenever I’m here, you’re not. And when you’re home I’m out, scouring the old paths – looking for you. I’ll always be here on my way there. Where will you be?
You only come see me when you need a ride.
Stop using me, freeloader!
G train- You’re A Slut! Give anyone A RIDE!

It would appear that erecting a manger is so prohibitively expensive in Greenpoint nowadays it necessitates selling air rights for high rises. I wonder if former city councilman, failed pretender to the Brooklyn Boro Presidency, Libertarian, despoiler of north Brooklyn and all-round real estate whiz lobbyist, Ken Fisher, is behind this arrangement? If it worked for Ismael Leyva, surely we can spare a little FAR Jesus of Nazareth!

While this newest addition to the Garden Spot of The Universe isn’t entirely new, I have been meaning to give it a mention on New York Shitty. Today, dear readers, is that day.
Here are the deets: Yes Gallery is located in the basement of 147 India Street between Manhattan Avenue and beautiful McGuinness Boulevard. They opened late October with a group which, quite frankly, I’m pretty disappointed I missed. It looked fantastic. Anyhoo, I was lucky enough to see their second show, have a quick chat with their proprietress and meet her French Bulldog Cobra (who, if you’re wondering, is a SHE).
Here’s a sneak peek at the interior of this establishment.
While difficult to capture on camera, it is a lovely space. What’s more, the show they currently have up is pretty spiffy to boot! I for one really like this painting of a primeval couch. Those of you who have the time really should give this show a look-see. It closes on December 15, 2008.
In other news (of particular interest folks staying in New York City this holiday season and last minute shoppers alike) I have been told their next show will feature 100 8″x10″ photographs by 100 different artists for sale at the (very) reasonable price) of $99.00 a pop. The opening is scheduled for December 21, 2008. I will publish more details here as I learn them.
