The word on First Avenue (across the street from Stuyvesant Town) is “RAH RAH” is an asshole. He (or she) also appears to be from Queens. This is interesting given the “314” exchange hails from Brooklyn. Hmm…

New York Shitty Day Ender: Miss Heather Does A Good Deed

Today, dear readers, I did something I rarely do: go to the movies. This much-needed bit of recreation entailed me doing something else I do not do very often: going to Manhattan. Murray Hill, no less. (What can I say? I find Woody Harrelson brandishing firearms irresistible.)

Anyhoo, after deciding in favor of getting a little walking in I got off at the 1st Avenue stop of the L. As I proceeded further north I began to realize I was not in Greenpoint anymore. I felt uncomfortable. People were staring at me. Thankfully, at 24th Street I saw something that made me feel right at home.

As you are all too aware I have a “thing” for pay phones. I cannot pass one without looking at it. The above example was no exception.

INCOMING

Incoming ordnance at twelve o’ clock!

Crikey, Verizon took a direct hit!

After I took the above photograph a livery cab pulled up beside me and a 40-something gentleman made a bee line for this telephone.

Me: Dude!
40-something Gentleman: (picks up receiver)
ME: DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE!
40-sG: (turns around)
Me: Don’t use that pay phone! Someone took a shit on it!!!
40s-G: (slowly turns around and, after noticing that someone has indeed despoiled said pay phone, let’s it slide from his hand.)
Me: That’s why I was taking photographs of it. SOMEONE SHIT ON IT!
40s-G: Thank you! Thank you! (starts heading back to livery cab)
Me: No problem. Do me a favor, okay?
40s-G: What?
Me: Please wash your hands as soon as you can, okay? I mean, someone SHIT on that phone. God only knows what else is on there we can’t see.
40s-G: I will, thank you!

With that closing remark and the slam of a cab door he was on his way. And I was on mine. Which brings me to what I found two blocks later.

P.S.: I felt so good about my good deed today I decided to make a little detour and purchase myself a treat!

As I have mentioned previously the Mister has taken two weeks vacation. Yesterday we went to the birthplace of Theodore Roosevelt. This is not my idea of how to celebrate one’s birthday but then again it wasn’t my birthday that was being celebrated. Anyhoo, afterward we proceeded to walk to Chinatown. Follows is a slide show featuring some highlights from our walk. Enjoy!

Anybody out there know who this guy is? I ask because finding myself between him and a horde of very excited teenage girls (and one older gentleman wearing bermuda shorts) was mildly terrifying.
