Those of you who may be harboring the notion of checking out the fire (at least what is left of it) today, don’t bother: security has been hired. The above fellow, apparently. NOTE: Stefano Giovannini (whose photo this is) presented his city-issued press pass to the police. They told him to leave. So there have you.
An immensely talented and all-around nice guy, Stefano Giovannini, braved the cold and took some wonderful photos of our city’s Bravest fighting what is apparently now a seven alarm fire. Do take a moment to peruse his Flickr set here. They are not only lovely (if one can call such subject matter that) but are an excellent testement to the hard work and dedication of our firefighters.

Yes folks, it has been a while (think over four years) but Community Board 1’s Human Services Committee (which was recently merged with the Public Safety Committee) will be convening this evening at 6:30 p.m. As you can see, the agenda is an interesting one. For those of you who are wondering what the “Right To Know Act” is (from DNA.info):
Called the “Right to Know Act,” the legislation would require officers to identify themselves and explain why the individual is being stopped or questioned. They would also have to explain that individuals can deny consent to a search in certain instances.
Currently, police officers are not required to identify themselves or explain why they are searching individuals…
Check it out!

Here’s the deal: I have not gotten out much lately. Part of this is due to the fact it has been very, SERIOUSLY cold. Thankfully I have had my snow globe project(s) to keep me busy. Today, being as it reached a downright sultry 41 degrees, merited a walk. It was the first time I have hit the “Catwalk” (READ: Bedford Avenue) since New Years Day. During the previously-mentioned sojourn I spied a charbroiled mattress on North 7th Street right outside the Bedford Avenue stop of the L. Finding this interesting I took a couple of photos. Without further ado, here they are!
Now let’s jump forward to January 19, 2015. Guess what? It is still there.
What’s more, I managed to capture something I honestly thought I had missed: a fellow giving himself a face/hair check courtesy of one of our shiny new(er) buildings!
Here’s looking at you, kid.
