New York Shitty Street Seating Du Jour: Adapt & Overcome!

McGuinness street seating 1 nys

If there is one thing I have observed in my years living in the Garden Spot, it is this; its citizens are thoughtful and often quite resourceful. As the neighborhood has “changed” this has diminished somewhat— but as the above photo attests some of that “community spirit” persists. We you have just looked at, gentle readers, is an ad hoc piece of shuttle bus seating installed on the western side McGuinness Boulevard just a hop skip from Kent Street.

The selection of chair is welcoming, even downright cheerful. Just want a tired commuter would want to see while negotiating our mass transit system, In terms of style (if not capacity), it far surpassses its kindred in Long Island City. But would I expect anything less of our fair burgh? Of course not! Last but hardly least —the piece de resistance, if you will— is additional measure taken so as to discourage theft.

This is, naturally, a coordinating/”re-purposed” red brassiere. I give this arrangement two enthusiastic New York Shitty thumbs up. Bravo!

It is scenes such as this that make me happy I am acclimatized to walking 4,5,6 miles in a clip— and own a good pair of sneakers.

Crosstown Local Photos Du Jour: Waiting

When I took the above shot I accidentally bumped into a young woman. After apologizing I explained:

Whenever they suspend G train service I like to take pictures of all the happy people waiting for the shuttle bus.

She laughed. And I added:

It’s like something from the Great Depression. These people look like they want to shove the barrel in their mouths and pull the trigger.

She replied:

You should email that to the MTA.

Perhaps I will?
