At long last our fair city has gotten a long overdue dose of the white stuff (snow). It is a perfect day to curl up with a book and perhaps take a tipple. However I would advise you, gentle readers, to please do so indoors.

P.S.: Note that our prodigal Teddy seems to be also enjoying a fair number of books. Perhaps this lot has become a library of sorts? If so, I have a humble suggestion as to whom it should be dedicated!

It would appear the construction fence fail at 958 Manhattan Avenue (which, inasmuch as I can ascertain, has been in effect since at least March 17th) has come to the attention of Paul Richard. If/when the Department of Buildings will take action remains to be seen.

Another day, another panel has opted to shirk its duty. Note this fellow’s pup found this lot of tremendous interest. Now that I think about it, it would make a nice dog run. Anyone with me on this?

This vision hails from 958 Manhattan Avenue. Inasmuch as I can recall it has been in this state for just over a week— perhaps even two. But why dwell on such trivialities? I prefer to see this as an opportunity.This lot could easily pressed into service as a location for a flea market, ¬†barbecue, wilderness survival workshops— hell, an enterprising person could simply park a handful of campers, tap into those electrical lines and operate a hostel— or all the previous! And of course there are more pedestrian uses such as a community garden to consider. In any case here it is for posterity. Anyone care to place bets on how long it will remain like this?
