As if we didn’t need more reason to not vote for Charles Hynes to be the district attorney of Brooklyn — because really, being seen as helping hide child molesters from the public prosecution when your job to prosecute such crimes isn’t enough? — his campaign is has chosen to blight Brooklyn. We’ve seen Hynes’ face plastered all over Brooklyn with posters like these:
Not only that, but his campaign workers obnoxiously patrolled the route of NYC Marathon, repeatedly trying to hand out fliers to the same people who had to decline said fliers repeatedly, advertizing his re-election, and politicizing an event that is meant to bring people together peacefully – not divide and stir up narrow-minded politics. It’s a move that is tacky at best.
We hope to see you go and enjoy retirement while living in Queens, Mr. Hynes.
You left this beer along a windowsill on Cortlandt Alley in Tribeca. We know that it’s yours because you wrote your name with a smiley face on the cup. Do your parents know that you turn overpriced cups of iced coffee from Starbucks into beer cups? If they did, they would probably enjoy your thrifty nature. The beer is probably too warm for your taste by now, but should you have been wondering where your beer was, it’s on the eastern side of the alley. We highly doubt that anyone has taken a sip of it, so feel free to continue imbibing.
And try not to blow anyone in the desolate alley this time, you’ll forget that you left your beer there once again.
Since the year 2000, New York City has seen 19 hospitals close and shutter their doors. The City of New York has seen hospitals be figuratively gutted from neighborhoods. Now, St. Vincent’s Hospital has literally been gutted and torn down (condos are going up for rich folks who will likely not have to pay much, if any, property taxes on them).
We were shocked to see that the entire building that housed the emergency room of the hospital has been demolished and that not much is left of the others. But, New York City is all about change, we are changing towards a future where there are no hospitals left, because who needs to get sick and die when they are in the great city in the world. Right?
We came across this stand alone stationary exercise bike chained and locked up to a pole in Boro Park, Brooklyn.
Because the folks in Boro Park are worried that someone might ride off with this stationary bike…
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.
