Something Neat: New York City Street Scene

Filed under: Manhattan, New York City 

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!

I arrived home today from my not-completely successful stint as tour guide more than a little bit tired. I was BEAT. Cracking open a nice cold Budweiser and finding this in my photo pool (which comes courtesy of amolho4) well, made me smile. Love it!!!

Great Moments In Advertising: Herbal Clean

July 30, 2010 ·
Filed under: Manhattan, New York City 

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!
