Growing up in New York City, we always loved being driven along the West Side Highway. At, or near 42nd Street, a building had a tractor-trailer sitting on top of it. Seeing it always lit up our little mind and set off our imagination. Fast forward a couple and a half decades, and we spot this sailboat sitting high up above the Bowery at the New Museum.
We hope that the boat will remain there for decades, and that it will allow countless imaginations of children passing by it to run wild from it.
We’ve known John Mancuso for nearly 20 years. He’s an all around good guy. He has been campaigning hard to win a seat on the City Council to represent Staten Island. He is also a victim of a most horrifically funny Facebook link issue.
We highly doubt that Mancuso is pro-suicide. But thank you, Facebook, for putting the possibility of it into the world.
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.
We spectated the NYC Marathon today. Here are some photos of runners. Some are costumed, some are grouped, and others are simply inspiring.
We don’t know who that last guy is, but that smile and energy of his is simply wonderful.
Behold! Ye olde stickman of New York City.
It lives in a prison cell.
