Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Blue

This really disturbs me— and I am not a person who is easily disturbed. First you have the fact many dogs are euthanized for no other reason than homes cannot be found for them. Then you have the fact a child(‘s artistry) is being employed to pimp out the family dog. A DIY Grindr ad, if you will.

Blue is handsome fellow. This is indisputable. But that is not really the issue here.

Damn.

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: If It Fits, It Sits

I spied this while strolling down Centre Street yesterday. It was too good to pass up and I have made a six inch by six inch print of it which is for sale for $4.95 a print here. Also, I did a pass by the Manhattan Detention Complex which is located across the street. I had a friend with me at the time and I wanted her to see the “Customer Service” entrance as I find it grimly entertaining.

Fun Fact: Google has reviews for the “MDC”. These can be perused by clicking here. Here’s a teaser:

Food was decent for a jail. Although the rooms were dirty and smelled Funny, not much to do, no one was severely injured at during the stay. The staff was decently helpful and the guest were surprisingly friendly.

I have to say this is eerily reminiscent of an AirBnb review. Manhattan Detention BnB. So there you. Closing on a totally unrelated note, prior to taking the day’s walk I met with a reporter from CBS Channel 2. They produced a news item about the Manhattan Avenue Parking Spot of Death which not only aired last night but interviewed our City Councilman, Steve Levin, about the matter. You see, he himself has been tricked by this money mill. In any case, I want to applaud him for taking the time to speak up about this and state plainly the sentiment held by a number of folks hereabouts regarding this matter. That sentiment being this space, which has no reason to be made illegal parking in the first place, should simply be made legal. Well done!

P.S.: The Brooklyn House of Detention also has reviews on Google. One is accompanied with some mighty interesting photos. The image at left is one of them. I will let your read the accompanying copy on your own but I will state right here an now it is the sort of stuff folks like our Vice President would not find the least bit amusing. Instead, I will leave you with this review which is considerably more concise and less detailed:

It’s like vegas- you only really want to be there 2 nights

Indeedy!
