The person who modeled for this caution steep cliff sign in Newport, RI jumped at the chance to do be the model.
It was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
On a related note, why has the City of Newport made the dangerous unpaved paths (we were on the paved path) along the steep cliffs so damn inviting to walk on?
The caution signs are only making the inevitable Darwin Award all the more easy to win.
We here at BeehiveHairdresser are very much pro-life when it comes to trees. Trees purify the air and create shade for other living things to live happily under. However, when a small tree starts growing along the F train at 4th Avenue station, especially when the station was just rehabilitated as part of a $275.5 million rehabilitation project to fix the Culver Viaduct, we question the validity of the tree’s life.
A tree is growing directly between the concrete and steel that is holding the station up and will only make the station less structurally sound if it is allowed to grow larger.
So, um… MTA folks. We know that you are incredibly busy running the massive transit system in and around New York City, but could you please send someone out to the Manhattan bound tracks of the F & G subway line at 4th Avenue/9th Street to remove the tree so that we didn’t just spend $275.5 million to have a tree make the subway structurally unsound. Thanks in advance!
There were a lot of fanciful and beautifully dressed folks on Governors Island today for the Jazz Age Lawn Party.
This lady in the open back blue dress takes the cake.
We would have crowned her Queen Jazz Age Lawn Party if we could have.
We love it when we get a passing glance of 240 Centre Street, aka the Old Police Headquarters.
It is one of the few truly majestic buildings in Manhattan.
