Sunset 7

While perhaps not a rainbow (which is what I hoped for), this lovely capture of yesterday’s cloud cover by Lumin8tion makes all the rain worth it!

A Very Special Urban Fur: Calvary Cemetery Style!

Today I had the pleasure of taking a lengthy sojourn with the imitable proprietors of Forgotten-NY and The Newtown Pentacle. It was after the first leg of our tour that Mitch Waxman, the author of the former site, took me on a tour of Calvary Cemetery.

And I learned that not all the “residents” therein have two legs!

Per Mitch, Calvary is hoppin’ with these little guys (and gals). We are talking about rabbits after all!

Here’s a little footage I shot of this handsome little fellow. As you will see he is not too big on humans. Living ones, anyway!

Special thanks go out to Mitch for taking the time to show me some of the finer points of Calvary (among other things) today. In closing, I’d like to mention the reason why he and Kevin were taking a walk today: they are in the planning stages for a tour of points Long Island City, Sunnyside and beyond. This will come to pass April 16— so mark your calendars!

P.S.: I will be compiling a slide show of sights— and sounds— from today’s sojourn so check back!




THIS SUNDAY: 6th Annual Memorial Ride & Walk

I have been told a starting point in Greenpoint has been added: 1:00 p.m., on the steps of St Anthony’s, Greenpoint Avenue & Milton St (1/2 block from Greenpoint G stop). The rain/snow date for this event is March 20th. You can view updated information regarding this multi-borough event by checking out Ghost Bikes’s web site.

Closing on a related note, I would like to remind everyone that one of our own, Emilie Gossiaux, was seriously injured by a hit and run driver October of last year. You can read more about this amazing young woman, her recovery and tender a donation towards her (copious) medical expenses by clicking here.

Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: Missing

November 13, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Queens 

No details are given as to where Giuseppe “Joe” Russo calls home— but I spied a number of these fliers on Manhattan Avenue this afternoon. Therefore, I am guessing he is a Greenpointer.

If you have seen Joe (who hails from Howard Beach and is an Alzheimer’s patient) or know his whereabouts please call 911 or his loved ones at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!

P.S./Props: Special thanks go out to the anonymous tipster who forwarded me the last photograph gracing this post.

Quicklink: YRU On My Train?

Props go out to Subway Art Blog for spotting this gem. He writes:

What could possibly drive two aspiring actresses to start interviewing strangers in the subway? Sheer curiosity.

Why Are You on My Train? is a video blog by Alli Goldberg and Jen Jamula. Both of them moved to New York to pursue their acting careers after graduating from Yale’s theater department, but found themselves doing something they never expected. “Our blog was partly born out of riding the subway to and from auditions and a) wondering who the people were around us and b) wanting to engage,” explained Jen…

You can read the rest over at Subway Art Blog. Check it out!

In the meantime here’s a choice morsel:

I can only hope I meet these ladies and tell them my tales. Provided of course the G train is actually running.
