New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: Break On Through To The Other Side

This week I did something I have never done before: I walked across the Williamsburg Bridge to Manhattan. I saw a number of interesting things, including a man urinating off of said bridge. At one point he even rested his member on the rail so as to free his hand to forage for his cell phone. It was quite the sight, I assure you. If there is a lesson to be learned here it is this: if you are walking down South 6 Street near the waterfront, carry an umbrella. Or better yet: walk on the other side of the street.

In any case, here are some highlights from my sojourn to Manhattan. I have tossed in some shots from Chinatown as well. Enjoy!

killerbeesthumbThis item comes from Leslie Ann Murray who is organizing a very special fundraiser this upcoming weekend. I’ll let her take it from here:

100 Bumble Bees Riding over the Williamsburg bridge

Make your own bumble bee costume, grab your bike, helmet, honey pots and lets ride over the Williamsburg bridge. You have to wear a costume or something that honors the bumble bee spirit; yellow and black strip socks are acceptable. Be creative, please come in something bumble beeish.

Why ride over the bridge in a bumble bee costume? because bees are great, I love honey and I eat B pollen, I think it would be fun to ride over the bridge with a group of people in bumble bee costumes and also to raise money for Imani House adult literacy program.

This is not a race just a nice bike stroll. Bikers share the lane with pedestrians on the bridge so we have to be alert to the people on feet.

Bring your cameras, smiles, warmth, beauty, friends and love. If you would like to bring your instruments please do, I’m sure bumble bees love music.

This event kicks off at the Manhattan entrance of the Williamsburg Bridge at 4:00 p.m. Saturday, June 13. The suggested donation to participate is $5.00 (although if you do not have the money to spare you are welcome just the same). For more information (including tips on how to make your own bee suit!) click here and you’ll be directed to 100 Bumble Bees web site.

I’m not too sure when these photographs (which I hail from the junk shop) were taken but I found them compelling nonetheless. Enjoy!

This post is dedicated to the city of Mumbai.
