Williamsburg Photo du Jour: Still There!

On December 8, 2011 I wrote:

The “ladybug” was installed October 13th. As of the writing of this post (okay, Monday afternoon), I have no idea whether she is still there or not. This is because the lavatory in question was locked…

Well, this morning I swung by Jamie Campiz Playground. Not only am I pleased as punch to announce the comfort stations were open…

but the ladybug is faring just fine!

This item comes from a lady named Allison. She writes:

Hi Heather,

I’m not sure if you have an events page or not, but I’m doing a charity event and need all the help I can get to promote it.  Attached is the Press Release and the flier for the event.  In short, the event is a Zombie Crawl, Film Screening of “Night of the Living Dead”, and an after-party.  The donations collected for the event will directly benefit the Food Bank For New York City and their efforts to fight hunger.  If you can spread the word about this Brooklyn event, I’d be incredibly grateful!

New York Shitty does not have an events page— but given the sheer number of press releases I am receiving nowadays I am seriously mulling over erecting one. In any case, there are a number of events benefiting our local food banks (and thus our neediest) in the next couple of weeks and I will endeavor to give each of them a mention. As Allison has mentioned, the Zombie Crawl will kick off at Jamie Campiz Playground on October 30th at 4:00 p.m. From there all interested zombies will head over to indieScreen where they can watch their brethren wreak havoc for a sweet $12.00. There is also an after party slated at The Cove afterward. Check it out!

Williamsburg Video Du Jour: Après Moi le Deluge

August 22, 2010 ·

As yours truly inexorably creeps closer to middle age, I have achieved a certain level of acceptance about life. For example:

  1. I have grown to accept I will never be a millionaire. Money always has been and always will be a concern for me.
  2. I will never win the Nobel Prize. Not that I have really tried, mind you. I am, by my own admission a colossal UNDERachiever.
  3. I have pretty much (by)passed all the milestones people hold near and dear. All I have left to do is die— which brings me to the video you just watched.

I would like to take a moment to applaud the New York City Parks Department for awakening me from my existentialist funk by reminding me that I am in no hurry whatsoever to accomplish point #3. In fact, I have never felt so alive as I did this afternoon while patronizing this public lavatory at Jamie Campiz Playground and praying to god* I would not be electrocuted.

Sincerely grateful,

Miss Heather

*Given I am an agnostic this is truly noteworthy.
