The Word On The Street, Part II: VOTE

How does one voice his/her dissatisfaction with a selection of candidates? Well, as yours truly learned today in Sunnyside there’s stating you’d prefer to vote for Adolf Hitler for starters. Note the annotation “AKA Big Pig” and devil horns/donkey ears. Nice…

New York Shitty Day Ender: A Stroll In Queens

Reflection

As promised, here are some highlights from yesterday’s sojourn around Queens. Before we proceed I’d like to tender a few thoughts/teasers:

  1. I stumbled upon not one but two clownmobiles. Slap happy after four hours of walking I have fun with the owners of one of them.
  2. Just as in the fine borough of Kings if a patch of drying cement is left unattended in Queens someone will draw penis on it.
  3. After finding another “adult film” discarded by the railroad tracks on Skillman Avenue yours truly has decided to start a “found porn” map. Is anyone with me on this?

Without further ado, here it is. Enjoy!

A Very Special Urban Fur: Calvary Cemetery Style!

Today I had the pleasure of taking a lengthy sojourn with the imitable proprietors of Forgotten-NY and The Newtown Pentacle. It was after the first leg of our tour that Mitch Waxman, the author of the former site, took me on a tour of Calvary Cemetery.

And I learned that not all the “residents” therein have two legs!

Per Mitch, Calvary is hoppin’ with these little guys (and gals). We are talking about rabbits after all!

Here’s a little footage I shot of this handsome little fellow. As you will see he is not too big on humans. Living ones, anyway!

Special thanks go out to Mitch for taking the time to show me some of the finer points of Calvary (among other things) today. In closing, I’d like to mention the reason why he and Kevin were taking a walk today: they are in the planning stages for a tour of points Long Island City, Sunnyside and beyond. This will come to pass April 16— so mark your calendars!

P.S.: I will be compiling a slide show of sights— and sounds— from today’s sojourn so check back!

 

 

 

Quicklink: Creek Speak

What is “Creek Speak”, you ask? Here’s how the folks at Habitat Map describe it:

Creek Speak is an oral history project that uses online interactive maps to present the stories of people and places near Newtown Creek…
