Gee, where the hell is it?
The above-depicted is a map the MTA has issued apprising its patrons of subway service slated to be restored tomorrow, November 1st, 2012. As you can see our beloved Crosstown Local is, um, MIA. Or would that be MII (Missing In Inaction)? In any case, those of you who have been enjoying a furlough from your daily commute (and want to forward it to your supervisors) can grab the link for this map by clicking here.*
UPDATE, 7:25 p.m.: Here’s a Service Alert from the ever awesome Chair of Community Board 1′s Transportation Committee.
*Props go out to the incomparable Bitchcakes for bringing this to my attention. Thanks!

Great band performing last night at the Sugar Hill Disco.
It was a very odd night. Sugar Hill Disco has been around for forty years, serving the local community. The owner, Eddie, noticing the change in the neighborhood and being “a great business man” has decided to start catering to the younger, whiter crowds.
It was a fun, at times odd, clash of the old with the new.
I got a big hug and invite from Eddie for Thursday Karaoke with the old time crowd. I can’t wait for that.

From (the other) Bedford Avenue.
Speaking as a Greenpoint resident, I can attest that I see empty liquor bottles— lots of them— on a daily basis. What I have never seen, however, is an artful arrangement of said items. This brings me to the image above (which was taken at DeKalb Avenue).
This is truly impressive.
What’s more, the person(s) responsible for this have seen fit to separate the bottles from the cans. NICE!
