This week’s polar vortex (cough:cough lame ass name for a cold front) reminded us about the last lingering polar vortex we experienced, where we were privy to this giant ice formation on the platform of the F/G train at 4th Avenue-9th Street. The multi-million dollar facelift that the station is receiving hasn’t had good luck fixing the leaky pipes at the southern end of the platform, because the world’s largest icicle sprouted up there over the course of several days.
We did it, we found the two best United States mailboxes in all the land. Look at these beautiful, the most beautiful, mailboxes in all the land that sit at the corner of Remsen Street and Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights.
Where is the R train?
We’ve often wondered the very same thing while waiting patiently at 59th Street for an R train to arrive after waiting for 20 to 30 minutes. We predict that the 59th Street station of the N/R at 4th Avenue will be the very last station to receive countdown clocks because the wait time is just too embarrassing for the MTA to show.
