Some things I saw today

The Canal was looking extra putrid


It didn't looks so good the day the Google Camera Car drove by.

I ran by this strange marker on Ocean Ave and Lincoln Place. A quick Google search yields very little useful information.  Although I do know of another marker like that across the street from Borough Hall.

To the left is a photo that shows where it is.





If you zoom in you can see the marker in this Google Streetview. You can also see the shadow of the camera.

Later in the afternoon I found myself on the corner of 53rd and 3rd.   It was in 2013 Brooklyn and I am sure that the Ramones were singing about a shadier time in Manhattan.

Lyrics | Ramones lyrics - 53rd And 3rd lyrics

If you think you can,well come on man
I was a green beret in Vietnam
I said 'no more of our fairy stories'
'Cause i got my other worries

53rd and 3rd
Standing on the street
53rd and 3rd
I'm trying to turn a trick
53rd and 3rd
You are the one they never pick
53rd and 3rd 
Why don't make you feel sick?

If you think you can,well come on man
I was a great beret in Vietnam
I said 'no more of our fairy stories'
'Cause i got my other worries

53rd and 3rd
Standing on the street
53rd and 3rd
I'm trying to turn a trick
53rd and 3rd
You are the one that they never pick
53rd and 3rd
Why don't make you feel sick?

Then I took out my razor blade
Then I did what God forbade
Now the cops are after me
But i proved that i'm no sissy

53rd and 3rd
Standing on the street
53rd and 3rd
I'm trying to turn a trick
53rd and 3rd
you are the one that they never pick
53rd and 3rd
Why don't make you feel sick?

53rd and 3rd
53rd and 3rd
53rd and 3rd...

  1. Lots of interesting stuff here today CU, tell me as I'm most curious. Does the canal "smell" putrid as well or is it just 'looks'.
    Is it deemed a health hazard by the powers that be?

    1. The Canal does not stink as much as it used to. But sometimes raw sewage drains into it and it has some very old toxic issues too.
