Melting 'Flesh and Bone'

Crews were apparently filming a wintertime scene of the upcoming Starz TV series "Flesh and Bone" on East Ninth Street on this chilly 90-degree day ... which is why the actors were in coats and stuff.

And about the show!

Claire, a talented but emotionally troubled dancer, joins a company in New York City, and soon finds herself immersed in the tough and often cutthroat world of professional ballet.

Sounds hot.

Summer liking

Photo from Tompkins Square Park on Friday by Edward Arrocha.

A July 4 holiday weekend

It was a mostly fine weekend hereabouts, patriotic or otherwise.

[On the Bowery]

It was quiet.

[First Avenue]

Except for the fireworks, the official ones … and the illegal ones.

One of the hawks joined a rooftop fireworks viewing party on East Eighth Street.

We don't really have much to show for the weekend.

We took a photo of a mannequin in the trash. We saw the Moon. And Mars, just barely.

We read the Fourth Amendment that someone took the time to write on the plywood on the East 11th Street side where Mary Help of Christians used to be. (Someone also wrote the First Amendment out too.)

We did not sit here, however tempting, on East 13th Street.

We unnecessary used the "noir" setting to take photos of the sky from Avenue C way back on Thursday

We wondered if the quinoa made the move safely to Avenue B.

We set a spring trap for our neighbors.

We wondered about this photo of a Citi Bike in the trash on East Houston at Norfolk that a reader emailed us.

There was probably more. But we'll leave you with the Chillmaster taking you into the night …
