New York Shitty Day Ender: Lost & Found In Translation

From Mott Street, Manhattan


This (which hails from the Canal Street stop of the 6 train in Manhattan) is bona fide proof that New York City is still an international city— if not in subway service, at least in anger directed at lack of said subway service. Only the MTA could make this kind of racial/ethnic unity (albeit while employing profanity) happen. Mazel tov!

The use of sarcastic quotation marks is a nice touch.

P.S.: Can anyone give me a translation of the Chinese annotation on this flier? My curiousity is driving me crazy.

New York Shitty Day Starter: Mystery Train

Yesterday I finally met up with a very nice reporter. She is working on article which will hit the stands next year (January 2010). Among the numerous questions she asked me while taking in the marvel that is a very packed junk shop was one regarding what I like to collect. This was a very prescient question given that anyone I’ve ever known who worked at a thrift store is invariably a “collector” of one thing or another. I am no exception— but do try to keep my acquisitions as portable (and cat proof) as possible. I stick to photographs nowadays. I have acquired quite a collection over the years. Many are of a highly “adult” nature and as such are unsuitable to publish here. But some are. Like the following negative that I managed to finesse into a positive last night.

14th Street Local with two proud employees. I’m guessing this is the L train— but who knows? I’ll leave it to you, dear readers, to render a verdict. To this end I will leave with a slide show of my mystery train and mystery men. Enjoy!

P.S.: In my research I stumbled upon this map of featuring the pride of the New York City subway system: the Crosstown Local. If you thought service was limited now, you should see it what it was like in 1939!
