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.
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!
We feel for Lily who apparently lives just below Canal Street.
Lily, stay safe. Your stalker sees you and left the above note to let you know that they are the world’s creepiest stalker by spelling your name in a squiggly lined way.
