Crosstown Local Photo Du Jour: For Rent

If this sheet rock and Sharpie marker solicitation (which hails from outside the Keap Street entrance of the G and L trains at Metropolitan Avenue) is any indication I’d say times are getting pretty tough in the ‘Burg. The asking rent for these mystery digs has been excised. Anyone care to place a bid?

Quicklink: The L Train Rat

Those of you who are looking for a little lite entertainment and happen to be on Twitter may want to give this, the musings of a L train rat,  a look-see. If you do, here’s a sampling of what you’ll find:

i get so self conscious when everyone watches me look for food on the track

every once in awhile people at the 1st ave stop smell like delicious fried dough and i just want to kill myself

people seem to hate me 100x more when i’m rained on.

too fat to fit inside bottle 🙁 should probably go on a run to 8th ave.

Special thanks go out to Lisacat for bringing this to my attention. Check it out!

New York Shitty Day Starter: Nothing’s Sacred

Inasmuch as I hate to admit it there is a great deal of veracity to be found in the above cynic’s comment. Everything is for sale in our fair city. Whether one wants to sell or not is immaterial. It’s simply of matter of money, political influence and legal chicanery. We’re the easiest city money can buy.

There are many— religious types mostly— who consider New York City to be the whore of Babylon. They may very well be correct. Whores are capitalists in the purest sense. They do it for the money. New Yorkers do it for the money. Our god is the dollar and time is money.

What has come to pass at Atlantic Yards has reduced our fair city from being a whore to a slut. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free— or better yet at tax payer’s expense?

P.S.: This post goes out to Marty Markowitz who said and I quote (from Curbed’s gritty firsthand account of this farce):

Sorry about the noise outside. Obviously disgruntled Knicks fans.

Tool.

Just a typical November morning on the Bedford L platform.

Indeed.
