As is usually the case, I indulged in an informal New York Shitty New Year’s tradition. This of course is going to bed early New Year’s Eve so as to get up, go out and review the aftermath of north Brooklyn’s “festivities”. As you see, I was not disappointed. What initially caught my interest (naturally) was the artful array of bottle caps and solitary dinosaur on the fender. When I noticed the automobile had two, um, “inhabitants” well this had to be documented for posterity. At least they elected not to drive. Hence why I elected to blur out the license plates, registration, etc. I suspect the hangovers, sore backs and (probably) dead car battery are “punishment” enough for last night’s “merrymaking”/transgressions.
I will be uploading photos of my findings (there is vomit, discarded clothing— socks mostly, for some reason— hypodermic needles and even a partially incinerated box spring) in a bit— so check back!

Yesterday afternoon’s cloud cover was a beautiful sight— albeit a very brief one. I took a moment to capture it. I’m glad I did!

I have had this brought to my attention by a number of people, including a Dupont Street resident who sent me the above photo. She writes on December 29th at 10:11 p.m.:
About 30 minutes ago, Dupont & Manhattan was lit up like a Christmas tree. Ambulances, squad cars, the works. The word on the street is that a young man was stabbed to death. I hope it isn’t true.
Unfortunately, it is true. Per the NYPD via an anonymous tipster:
On Monday, December 29, 2014 at approximately 2037 hours, police responded to a 911 call of a male assaulted at 131 Dupont Street within the confines of the 94th Precinct. Upon arrival, police observed a 37 year-old conscious male with a stab wound to the torso. Upon investigation, it was determined that the victim had a dispute with another male in the vestibule of the location when the victim was stabbed. EMS transported the victim to Bellevue Hospital and he was pronounced DOA. The are no arrests at this time and the investigation is ongoing.
*****UPDATE 12/30/14 LT A*****
The deceased has been identified as:
131 Dupont Street
