That car that crashed on 52nd & 7th yesterday is also on 54th Street now. Its starting to look like a dump!

Hey, what happened to the Coney Island post? One second it was there on my Google Reader, the next, when I clicked on your blog from Reader, it's not there. Anyway, I wanted to comment that yes, it is, indeed, depressing chronicling the demise of this city and the rise of the Scary Sadshaws and the yunnies. That's why I'm retiring from "blogging" and from reading such blogs. It was [n]fun while it lasted. Cheers, nonetheless.

Heh. Sorry about that Coney Island post, Esquared...I'll have it live (again) tomorrow morning.

I'm sorry to hear about your retirement. I really liked what you did. Or like what you do. Please stop buy for a visit. We need more people like you...Maybe we'll get some more elbow room one of these days...

esquared, we won't let you retire. just go on hiatus and we'll see you when you get back.

grieve, i saw one of those doowop ads on delancey. is that where you snapped it?

EV Grieve said...

Hi BB,

I shot this one on Fulton Street near Water Street...I've seen them other places, though, too...Thinking about calling?

Bowery Boogie said...
