Methinks this person (who calls this club on Grand Street his/her own) might be serious!

Urban Fur: Grand Street, Revisited

Today I had the pleasure of taking a sojourn around Newtown Creek with the inimitable author of The Newtown Pentacle (and all-around nice guy) Mitch Waxman. Along our route was the place of work (and play) for a bevy of my favorite feral friends: Alexander Iron Works. You can view my (slowly growing) photo set of this colony by clicking here. Check it out!

Quicklink: Asphalt Archeology

Yours truly is constantly fascinated by the curiosities to be found while pounding this city’s pavement (such as the imprint of a toilet seat, at left, which can be found on Grand Street). In fact, I have a category on this site dedicated to just this phenomenon: urban artifacts.

For the previous reasons I found the following project by an artist named Mike Mission rather fun. Its name is Asphalt Archeology and as its name suggests it is a visual record of objects embedded in our city’s streets. The objects depicted range from the mundane (such as various pieces of scrap metal) to the decidedly more esoteric, e.g.; cutlery (a knife fork and spoon have been recorded), lamp fixtures, and a lock. In any case, I found it to be a fun time waster and wanted to pass it along here.

Check it out!

P.S.: Special thanks goes out to Walking & Typing for bringing this bit of neatness to my attention!

Yours truly has received word about a number of missing furkids lately. While all are heartbreaking, this one is especially so. If you have seen this handsome gent or know of his whereabouts please contact his person at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!
