Rings of Saturn

Chris Arnade, who took the above photo, writes:

I have forgotten how wonderful it can be to show someone the rings of Saturn for the first time. Or the craters in the moon. I had my telescope in my car and Takeesha and Deja had seen neither. Sometimes people are disappointed, growing up seeing images from the space telescope. Not these two. They loved it. We got the oddest looks. Johns slowed down, truckers were confused. I wanted to have a chance to let the police look as well, but they drove past.

PS: I used to be an Astronomy nut, spending my teenage years out in a cow pasture with a small telescope. What an odd journey to end up in Hunts Point with a much larger telescope.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Coming At You From Castle Hill, Bx…

A fellow named Matt writes (in an email entitled “Thought this would make you proud”):

Spotted out in Castle Hill in the Bronx!

For those of you who are wondering what is going on here, I’ll explain. Some upstanding (and I suspect upset) member of this community has seen fit to print out a post I authored years ago outlining the Canine Waste Law. As you can see he (she?) has not only affixed this missive to what I presume to be a telephone pole, but he has gone to the added trouble of “weather proofing” it. I am particularly moved by the latter— and yes, this makes me quite proud! Thanks for passing this along, Matt. It made my day!

From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part III: Romeo & Juliet

Chelsea (Juliet) and Brandon (Romeo): Hunts Point, Bronx

 

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Hunts Point Children’s Shakespeare Ensemble, spend all year preparing one play. This year it is Romeo & Juliet.

The kids start in fourth grade and carry on till sixth. Older students, who complete the program, then write and perform their own plays with The Storefront Ensemble.

The program is run by Hunts Point Alliance for Children (HPAC) and The Shakespeare Society.

For many of the children this is the first time they are respected enough to be challenged. Most local middle schools don’t have the resources to offer such extra curricular activities.

For tickets, donations, and just to find out more about The Hunts Point Children’s Shakespeare Ensemble visits HPAC or Shakespeare Society.
