New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

This was taken by a very nice lady named Stephanie on the N train at Lexington Avenue and 59th Street last night at 10:00 p.m. Given last weekend a homeless/”unhoused” fellow hereabouts died of hypothermia this made my heart sink. I suppose he (she?) is at least safe and warm— and if you are reading this, gentle readers, chances are you are as well. This is something to consider this upcoming Thanksgiving weekend replete with “Black Friday” sales.

Want versus need. This is something the Bloomturd administration* never really got the “jist” of. But they would not have been able to do what they did— for twelve years— without some semblance of approval. From us. We need to overhaul and/or gut the homeless shelter system as it operates presently. The McCarren Park Ice Rink: that’s a want. There is no reason someone should have to resort to our subway system to have a warm place to sleep (as opposed to freezing to death in out public parks). If Bloomberg can “give” us an ice rink…


*I have commenced creating a series of snow globe souvenirs of the Bloomberg Administration’s “accomplishments”. Obviously they have a decidedly north Brooklyn “twist” (as that is what I know best). However, suggestions are encouraged! Kick ’em over via comments or my “tips” page.

Great Moments In Advertising: Herbal Clean

Polishing off my selections from East Harlem I present you with this item which was the source of considerable debate between yours truly and the Mister. He said he thought it was advertising a product to help you beat urinalysis. I countered that it was shilling a laxative. Or at least that’s what I hope it is for. A cursory search of Herbal Clean’s web site does nothing to clear up this mystery. However, Herbal Clean offers an array of interesting products— including Emu Oil!
