Urban Fur: Chinatown Edition

I did not get the name of the magnificent beast (which hails from Chrystie Street). Neither he nor his keepers seemed very interested in talking to me. No worries, this 20+ pounder was busy keeping a vigilant watch over his domain!

New York Shitty Day Ender: Lost & Found In Translation

Filed under: Manhattan, New York City, Subway 

From Mott Street, Manhattan


This (which hails from the Canal Street stop of the 6 train in Manhattan) is bona fide proof that New York City is still an international city— if not in subway service, at least in anger directed at lack of said subway service. Only the MTA could make this kind of racial/ethnic unity (albeit while employing profanity) happen. Mazel tov!

The use of sarcastic quotation marks is a nice touch.

P.S.: Can anyone give me a translation of the Chinese annotation on this flier? My curiousity is driving me crazy.

LAST GASP: From The New York Shitty Photo Pool

Okay, I said I was signing off earlier. Then I saw this lovely photo by the incredibly talented (and it should be noted, fellow Greenpointer) Victoria Belanger. Not only does this image hail from one of my favorite non-Brooklyn places (Chinatown) but it showcases one of favorite storefronts EVER: Nam Wah Tea Parlor on Doyers Street! Needless to say I had to share it STAT.

See y’all tomorrow.

If anyone from this establishment (which is located at 20 Henry Street in Chinatown) is reading this: you might want to do a little word smithing on this advertisement.
