The hissing that comes from this pipe must surely sound like gentle ocean waves or chipping new-born birds for the surrounding apartments...perfect for sleeping!
I wonder if there is anyway to harness the energy released from the steam vent?
i bet if they capped that vent, that would put a serious dent in global warming.I-)
Shoot it at night and you got yourself an obligatory New York movie scene.
Man, that is the BIGGEST bong I have EVER seen..........link shows it to be a BIT pricey....and tough to drag around party-hoppin'.........but wothehell, pop it on the trailer.....and gitcher motor runnin'.....
@ DrBopPlease remember that we only post photos of steam accessories and steam pipes. If you make any reference to drugs, or drug paraphernalia, then your comment will be refused.
perhaps this is the steam that used to escape on 11th street just east of 1st ave - killed a tree in front of the mosque.good thing there are no trees here.do you think There is asbestos in the steam?con edison never replaced the tree. said it should not have been there in the first place.gez!
Some people would say you're in love...
@ EdenOh, you saw the flowers that I've been leaving at the foot of the vent? They die so quickly! I'll start leaving candles...
My husband grew up in Wisconsin and learned about the world via Mad Magazine and Frank Zappa. He said he never understood why Mad always portrayed steam coming up from the streets as though the city was always burning, and was fascinated with it. When he came to NY, it all made sense.That said, I too have been recently fascinted with the steam and glad you captured so many good photos. I particularly like the light in the early morning with the steam rising.
OK, you can stop now.
Doubt if one would call it any hazardous environment as the tale is quite a good presentation to show with a lot’s of emotions attached. From dusk till the dawn and the next still continuing…hope this would have been stopped after any period…
Don't stop taking pictures of steam pipes- It is one of the quintessential NYC street scenes and for some reason seeing them makes me feel a little burst of love for this city.
The EV is in the process of selecting the new pope.
