Continuing through Downtown Brooklyn through to DUMBO, I finally arrived in the area. Remembering it only as industrial, I was surprised at how much there was to see.

From here you can see one of the Manhattan wretched “waterfalls”

I took the photo because I liked the artwork on the restaurant.
When I got home, I realized that awful Nike sign
is where a Revs & Peek mural used to be.

(August 16) haven’t been in DUMBO in any reasonable sense of the word since Manhunt in DUMBO back in 2005. It feels like much longer than three years ago. My intent was to take the subway to York St., and walk a couple of blocks over to see the Revs and Kaves mural. Unfortunately for me, the due to subway construction, I had to get off at Jay St. Fortunately for me, I happened to have my GPS receiver in my backpack. What followed was an unexpected trek through Downtown Brooklyn through to DUMBO.

Back when I used to sell shampoo in the city during the mid 1990’s, you couldn’t turn your head without seeing the handiwork of Cost and Revs. After being arrested, Cost had had enough. Revs however, now creates metal sculpture works, which are cut off and sold into private collections. Bastards. On Saturday (August 16), I decided to make a trip to DUMBO

“Death From Above” Wall by Revs and Kaves

How long before the sculpture is stolen? History says, probably not long.

essex st station


The woman on the right stepped in front of everyone when the train stopped at Canal St.
She then stepped over a stroller with a baby in it and cut off an old woman trying to exit the train.
I nominate her for worst person in New York City.
