It amazes us how a lot can happen in a short about of time in New York. Take yesterday, we got a haircut, happened upon an apparent murder scene, had a tourist feel our butt up (accidentally, we hope) and managed to keep coming across some awesome street art by Lillian Lorraine throughout the entire journey.
No, it’s not our literal vanity, but this self-portrait does contain our vanity…
That is one handsome gent!
We beg to differ with the fool that wrote this piece on Manhattan’s Lower East Side regarding unpaid internships being modern slavery.
People didn’t go to college to become slaves, they were brought into slavery against their will, or born into it. Slavery wasn’t and isn’t by choice. Internships are a choice. If anything, an unpaid internship is more along the lines of the evolution of indentured servitude, because people are signing up to work for free.
Perhaps the bitter author of that graffiti would have known this had they been learning in school, instead of desperately trying to land an unpaid internship.
We spotted this “ghost hipster” hanging out in front of a construction site on the Lower East Side.
He’s so cool that he’s invisible, except for his shoes — well well well, Alanis, isn’t it ironic?
With Economy Foam moving from Houston Street to 56 W8th Street (between 5th &6th Ave), one more slice of Manhattan goes with it.
We’ll miss that old sign of theirs, appreciate the art on the construction shed while it lasts, and be happy knowing that when the opportunity arises that we need something refoamed, Economy Foam will still be around.
