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!

Astoria for Levin and Ciafone

Re-elect Levin IN ASTORIA

The primary might be over, but the mysteries and vestiges remain. Like these posters on Broadway in Astoria, Queens the Mister and I spied this weekend, for example. Why are they here?

Brief Relief

As discovered on Broadway today, September 5th, 2013. I do not even want to guess what the mystery liquid is. Yes folks, there’s a reason Community Board 1 has the dubious distinction of being #2 city-wide when it comes to trash…
