From The New York Shitty Inbox: Preserve The G Train Extension!

This petition was brought to my attention by its creator: Lincoln Restler, Democratic State Committeeman for Brooklyn’s 50th Assembly District and all-around great guy. If you agree with me that this is one change the MTA has made that is worth keeping, please take a moment to sign this petition. Thanks!

Greenpoint Photo du Jour: Dissonance

Sometimes it’s tough being Peter Gabriel in a Phil Collins world. This is for all the Peter Gabriel fans (or lovers of rubber suits) out there…

P.S.: This act kicked off a philosophical discussion with a couple chaps hanging out outside the entrance to the G train (and there always are men hanging at this location). I told one of them that while I really had no strong feelings about either Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel one way or the other, I felt the voice of those who prefer the latter should be heard. I also added I liked flowers and rubber suits. They agreed that this made perfect sense. They also concurred with me when I said we live in a strange and very wonderful place.

Greenpoint Photo du Jour: Sartorial

When I spied this incredibly natty (and friendly) fellow— and noticed how his jacket serendipitously matched the advertising gracing said car— I simply had to ask to take his portrait. Amused, he gladly obliged. This just goes to show that sometimes good things happen on the Crosstown Local!
