New York Shitty Day Starter: The Ties That Bind

As Brooklyn becomes Queens and Queens becomes Brooklyn we meet along the way.

This is ours to share!

Whoops.

P.S.: This post is dedicated to the bicyclist who grazed/hit Mister Heather yesterday on the Pulaski Bridge. I want to apologize personally for my husband’s intransigence and inability to comprehend that wherever you had to go was more important than yielding to a pedestrian who didn’t have the hindsight— literally— to see you. Rules apply to some people more than others. Clearly you are exempt. Jerk.

WTF?

I can only hope this “meet-up” is going down at the Nature Walk.

Karen, who wrote and produced the above piece of spoken word, writes:

Dear Miss Heather,

I’m really enjoying your thorough coverage of the Greenpoint Hotel!

I’m a former resident of Greenpoint (1996-2004) and I wanted to let you know about a new video short-story I just posted, “No Man’s Land,”
wherein I shot images of industrial Pittsburgh to stand in for industrial Greenpoint. If you get a chance to check it out, I hope you enjoy!

Enjoy it I did— thanks for forwarding this to me! You can learn more about Ms. Lillis and her work by checking out her Myspace page .

This is where your waste winds up when you flush the toilet in North Brooklyn during a light rain.

Yummy.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Dolphin Swims In Newtown Creek?

Yes, I too found this unbelievable but here it is.

A woman by the name of Ann Fraioli, a teacher at The Urban Assembly New York Harbor School, took the above photograph (which I have taken the liberty of cropping*) today, March 3, 2010. She writes:

We were down at Newtown Creek this morning checking out a site for an upcoming Harbor Class cycle.  We spotted a dorsal fin in the distance.  Sure enough, it was a dolphin making its way up the Creek.  We got to see it from about 15 feet away!  We tried to get him to turn around, but alas he was headed up the Creek into the muck.  Hopefully, he’ll think better of it all and turn around…

Christine Murray (who I would like to thank for forwarding this material to me) opines:

Is this a sign that the end of the world is approaching?

I wouldn’t rule it out. All I’m saying is I have had THIS stuck in my head all afternoon!

Miss Heather

UPDATE, 10:55 p.m.: here are some pix courtesy of Laura Hofmann to give you an idea of what our flippered friend was frolicking in.

Yummy.
