This is the lovely scene of ice skating at 30 Rock, Rock Center, Rockefeller Center, what have you… It’s also one of the most go to locations in New York for proposals.
That’s why, whenever we pass through Rock Center, we feel the irresistible urge to shout out to the couples below:
“HE’S GONNA PROPOSE TO YOU!”
“HE’S GOT A RING IN HIS POCKET!”
“HE’S GONNA DO IT! LOOK, HE’S REACHING INTO HIS POCKET! YOU’RE ABOUT TO BE PROPOSED TO!”
It’s good to get some hopes up.
There’s an old saying, “don’t go chasing waterfalls.”
And we should all heed such good advice. So when we cannot go chasing waterfalls, we should simply build one. Such is the case with this waterfall in Midtown Manhattan.
Remember how Tupac Shakur and gangsta rap was a thing and how Tupac ended up getting shot like a fool in the lobby of a Manhattan building way back in 1994?
Well, this is that very lobby. It’s located at 723 7th Avenue and as you can see, the lobby is in the middle of getting a facelift. Whatever traces of Tupac was left inside of that lobby are being wiped clean.
If you think about it, this empty lot and most of the people who work in Midtown Manhattan have a lot in common…
Both are left feeling empty and soulless inside.
We found this lame graffiti on a muni-meter box along Broadway at 57th Street in Manhattan.
Umm… yeah, we beg to differ with the author of that graffiti. It’s been nearly ten years and 9/11 is still not funny.
It will still lack humor in 66 years, just like the Holocaust, and in two thousand or so years, it will still not be funny, just like the volcanic explosion that covered Pompeii — some things are just so terrible that they will never be funny.
So… yeah, DOT. Perhaps you can send someone out to Broadway between 56th and 57th Street to remove that horrific attempt at satire?
