Urban Fur: Eden Under The L.I.E.

As I noted yesterday I took a sojourn around Dutch Kills. My buddy at Newtown Pentacle had this to say:

Ain’t it grand?

Well, its own in a way, it is. Usually one thinks of this industrial part of our fair city as being totally bereft of nature. This is not true. There is flora and fauna to be found there— provided one knows where to look. I happened upon the above-depicted gaggle of geese ducks while crossing the Hunters Point Avenue Bridge. Further along the 51st Avenue I happened upon a couple of gardens in the least expected of places. Gardens whose groundskeepers seem to be of the feline variety. Enjoy!

REAMIR!

What does one say about something like this (other than perhaps chanting REEM-UR over and over for everyone’s edification)? Absolutely nothing, that’s what! You merely bask in its sublimity. Speaking of which, if you’re wondering what Reamir & Company is about click here. NOTE: turn the volume down on your computer first.

Today I did something I have longed to do for some time: check out a rather extensive mural located the industrial no man’s land between Long Island City and Sunnyside. As I had long suspected, it was a lot more impressive up close. Although I wasn’t too keen on some of the hawkish content I was really happy I made the walk to see it. Follows is a slide show of the highlights. Enjoy!

As I said before: this is best appreciated in person. Go to the intersection of 35 Street and the Midtown Expressway and see it for yourself!
