Earlier today I stumbled upon an incoming link to my site. Curious, I checked it out. I have no idea what this woman is writing about (I am not fluent in Hebrew) , but the images she posted (including the above one) from Dane Shitagi’s The Ballerina Project made my day. Check ’em out!

Reader Contribution Du Jour: Live From Seventh Avenue & 38 Street!

NYC snow clean up. Fail.

Closing on a note of delicious irony I leave you, dear readers, with something I beheld at McCarren Park at 7:30 p.m. last night!

UPDATE, 6:15 p.m.: it would appear Jeff sent the wrong photo! He writes:

Oops, sent the wrong pic…that was 38th and Broadway….here’s the real fail at 38 and 7th!

Something Neat: Past Objects

As some of you might recall a woman stated at last week’s 94th Precinct Community Council meeting (in regards to the proposed homeless shelter at 400 McGuinness Boulevard) that “Greenpoint has been dumped on for years”. What she probably didn’t realize at the time is in how very correct she was. In fact, it could be argued that Greenpoint is, quite literally, a dump: much of what we know as Garden Spot today is landfill. Landfill = someone else’s trash.

I was reminded about this when I perused through the above book: Past Objects. What is this tome, you ask? I will tell you: it is a rather lavish photo journal/diary of objects found by amateur archeologist Scott Jordan while excavating various sites around our fair city. This includes a formidable number of finds from the Garbage, um, Garden Spot (and yes, Williamsburg)! If you like “stuff” and New York City history (and I do) you may very well enjoy this book. Follows are a few shots to give you an idea of what you can expect.

Old Shoes

The old metal horse was found in Greenpoint!

These Revolutionary War era items were found in Manhattan.

And lots and lots of bottles.

All in all I really enjoyed this book— I am not just saying this because I got it for free from the publisher (I did). It should also be noted that the first copy I was mailed was stolen— and not returned (Yes, this has happened). So obviously somebody else in the Garden Spot likes it as well Those of you who are interested in perusing this book will be pleased to know I have spoken to Jen over at our very own Word Books and she has placed an order for two! They should arrive next Wednesday.

I found this guy today in Chelsea. He claimed to be Lady Gaga’s grandmother… lol yeah, grandmother. He had the greatest aura to him, surrounded by good vibes.

God I love New York.
