I have a confession to make: inasmuch as I hate bicycles (or after the local entrepreneurs thieves get to them: carcasses of bicycles) piled chock-a-block on street signs I rather like this.

It doesn’t get any more upfront than this! This wonderful advertisement hails from the Bowery and was captured by Dale Harris. Speaking as someone who has dealt with her fair share of crazy landlords, someone could make a fortune manufacturing these signs. Just fill in the blanks.

Great find, Dale!

New & Noteworthy: Neither More Nor Less

What I love about this blog (which hails from the East Village) is encapsulated by the above photograph. Before you, dear readers, get your self-righteous feathers in a ruffle you best look at the entire post. This site isn’t about vilifying or making fun of the homeless.

Neither Nor More Less showcases the disparity between the “New York City” run by and for the affluent and, well, the less photogenic people who actually live here. In the above example we see a well-to-do couple laughing while seemingly oblivious to a man pissing himself. The previous scenario is not dissimilar to what I see in Greenpoint or Williamsburg on any given day. What is transpiring in the East Village will and is happening in Greenpoint. Not that most of the people reading this will be around to see it. We’ll be “priced out”.

My question is how long can we afford to ignore them? Whether our (se)lected officials care to admit it the growing homeless population in our city deserves our attention and compassion. True civilization in my book is how we, as a people, care for those who cannot fend themselves. Be they two or four legged. In this regard our city has failed. Miserably.
