New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: And Now A Word From 387 Classon Avenue…

387 Classon

We’ve all seen and traversed them: endless flyers and cards soliciting one kind of service or another gracing our sidewalks, foyers, doorways and even intercom systems. Speaking for myself, car services and real estate agents seem to be the worst offenders— but there’s plenty more blame to go around. Thus we, as citizens, post flyers stating we do not want these tree-killers gracing our property. After all, if we wanted or required these services we would undoubtedly find them of our own accord. This is why god created the Internet.

Most of the “no flyer” signs I see on any given day are the standard boiler plate variety. I need not explore them here because quite frankly they’re not very interesting. The manner in which the above residence has approached this problem, however, is another matter altogether. Behold the genius for yourselves, gentle readers.

You can always leave it to our friends in Bedford Stuyvesant to do something with style. Well done, 387 Classon! Let this be an inspiration to us all…

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.

Thanks Willie!

UPDATE, 11:32 p.m.: I cannot believe I forgot that the East River Ferry will be resuming service tomorrow as well! You can view their schedule by clicking here.

 

*Props go out to the incomparable Bitchcakes for bringing this to my attention. Thanks!

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

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.
