Quick announcement – I’m going to be a guest on the Leonard Lopate show on NPR! I should be on the Tuesday show – I’ll post the times on Monday for anyone interested in tuning in.
Now for my Friday assortment of random pictures I took during the past week. First, what can only be described as an umbrella graveyard at Mulberry & Prince:
I saw this great little decoration above the doors of the building at 24th & Park…
…A guy wearing a lion’s skin, which he has apparently tied on himself using the lion’s front legs. Love the detail work on the paws:
More lions on this staircase on the Upper West Side…
What I love is that the lion heads seem to be straining to get free of the stone:
Lego Batman keeps an eye on things at FAO:
Looking for the Broadway Diner in Times Square?
Maybe hoping to get a bagel or croissant?
Sorry, these are ghost signs above a place that now sells faux-antiques to God-knows-who:
A long time ago, a reader e-mailed me asking if I knew about the below building. If you look closely, above the storefronts…
…you’ll see this random Theatre sign. I have no idea what it refers to. An RKO used to be across the street…but this place just has no apparent theater.
This was in the adjacent window – odd, as it doesn’t seem to be directly part of any of the stores.
Finally, I love these Dutch Kills Civic Association signs, because it just sounds so threatening.
…Like, if you pollute, they’re going to hang you from a windmill.
Have a great weekend!
