New York Shitty Slideshow Du Jour: Newtown Creek Boat Ride

Motorboat Repair NYS

Last weekend, thanks to City of Water Day, I decide to take a (FREE!) boat tour of the creek hosted by the inimitable Mitch Waxman.  As has been the case in times past (this makes my third sojourn up to the creek), it did not disappoint. Not only did I bear witness to a fellow catching a little shut-eye at our very own Nature Walk, but I learned an interesting fact shortly after the above photo (which hails from the Long Island City side of Newtown Creek) was taken. Our fair creek is not just host to Typhus, but also Cholera and Gonorrhea. If this isn’t a trifecta of fun, I honestly do not know what is. I feel compelled to note that this fact was rolled out after a fellow tour goer was observed balancing his child on the rail of the boat so as to take photos with his smart phone. You can’t make this shit up.

In any case, follows are some highlights of my trip to, from and up the creek.* I have even included a photo of a CSO (Concentrated Sewage Overflow) for your late afternoon/early evening entertainment. Enjoy!

*A task which involved going to Governor’s Island. This was rendered more complicated by the fact Greenpoint still remains without ferry service.

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: The Word On The Street

The Other Broadway NYS

What does one give the man who has everything for his birthday? A man who, had he not been born— and made some interesting life choices (I prefer “detours”)—  yours truly probably would not have been either? This one is for the man who gave me the gift of gab. The one who was quite happy to let me— a GIRL— play with Erector sets, Legos, and showed me— much to my mother’s consternation— how to make and ignite gunpowder. The one who was not shy to “start shit”. The one who demonstrated to me how to berate public officials. In neatly written paragraphs using a cadence and vocabulary rarely seen— much less read— nowadays. The one who wrote this recently:

The reason Politicians (that’s not a typo— Ed. Note) try so hard to get re-elected is that they would ‘hate’ to have to make a living under the laws they’ve passed.

This one’s for you, Dad. Better one day late than never!
