the fun is over

Rounding out today’s posts (because I am beat after attending this evening’s 94th Precinct Community Council Meeting*) I leave you with this image from the New York Shitty photo pool taken by kim in nyc. Nice find!

*All things considered it was pretty mellow— but the conversation I had (if you can call such a thing that) with a rather angry woman (whose breath, ironically enough, smelled like a distillery) about liquor licenses wore me out. You can anticipate a full rundown (along with video footage) tomorrow!

Something Neat: New York City Street Scene

The junk shop is a never-ending journey of discovery for yours truly. It has certainly exposed me to a vast spectrum of humanity— literally and figuratively speaking— to which I had previously been unaware. For this reason I no longer feel compelled to travel for the simple reason I do not need to: pretty much anyone from everywhere imaginable finds their way to my doorstep at one time or another. I enjoy speaking to these people and learning about the world(s) from which they hail. I am— despite my protestations to the contrary— a “people person”.

I am also an arm chair traveler. Geography is not the only subject of my sojourns. The junk shop (or, more accurately: its photo bins) have enabled me to travel back in time. Which brings me to the photograph* gracing this post. My little voice told me I had seen this building before. After a very quick Google search I learned my little voice was correct! For the reveal click here. NOTE: be sure to check out the comments as they will lead you to a blog written by someone who lived in this “mystery” building!

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!

Happy July 4th From New York Shitty!

How else can a Garden Spotter give a nod to this, our fair country’s birthday, than to feature our very own El Blablazo tree (which has received some additional accouterments for just this occasion)? In addition what could possibly be more American than playing a little lotto while wearing an Appetite For Destruction t-shirt? Don’t everyone answer at once.

Regardless of how or where you decide to while away the day have a fun— and safe— holiday!
