When I spied this chap using a forklift with a furry friend in tow I asked to take his picture, he acquiesced. When I inquired as to what his “co-worker’s” name was he had no idea. So I decided his name should be Rodney (as in Rodney Street, where he “works”). As you can see, they concurred!

P.S.: This post goes out to kiminnyc whose fascination with our fair city’s call boxes— of all stripes— has made me give them a second look! If Washington D.C. can convert their call boxes into public art for all to enjoy why can’t we, the greatest city in the world, do the same? This Art Nouveau beauty (and many of its brethren) is crying out for some much-needed TLC. Is anyone with me on this? More importantly: does anyone know how we can make this happen?

From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part II: Schadenfreude

This image of last weekend’s carbecque comes courtesy of Alex Gaidouk. While I am on the subject, I have noticed that a great many people purport that this particular automobile has a proclivity for spontaneously combusting— and it runs upwards $350,000 a pop. What kind of person would outlay that kind of money for such a item? I’d really like to know.

My tipster, Enia (who took the above photograph), writes:

Hey Heather,

Not sure if you heard about this yet, or not, but it was pretty spectacular.

A Lamborghini BLEW UP on Rodney Street, which serves as the off-ramp for the BQE’s Metropolitan Avenue exit.

Here’s a picture of the FDNY putting it out.   Insane.

According to some kids who got there before me, they saw two guys running from the car just before it blew up so they speculate it was stolen.  We think the owner showed up just as FDNY was done putting it out.

Craziness: it’s not every day a $250,000 fireballs.

Indeed. So I suppose it goes in the “new” Williamsburg. Why roast something as pedestrian as, say, a Volvo when you can wreak a quarter million dollars of mayhem?

UPDATE, June 28, 2010: The folks at Jalopnik have ascertained this fire was started by a DVD player. One word: wow.
