(September 24) Today I had to go up to the Bronx in the neighborhood of the Amadou Diallo mural. On the way, I spotted several other murals in the area.

the el
The 6 rolling away from Whitlock Ave.

It’s just about the end for both flowers and butterflies.

Something to do with manatees and killer sphinxes

luz estela
This one on the side of a bodega is interesting…

Anyone know what this is?

(September 21) On the way home from the San Gennaro Festival, I took some shots as best I could of the new work going on inside a fenced in area on President St.

new work

that's really bad for his hearing

My father had one just like this, if I remember correctly.

Everything but the Impala is fair game in here.

Surely no one has gone barefoot here and lived.

(September 21) Pete called and said “I’m in Little Italy, come meet me.”


san gennaro festival
The neighborhood doesn’t like it. You think?

a bozo, made up as a clown
Drown The Clown, a regular at this festival.

it's all about the food
There’s a reason it’s called a feast.

fried everything
Lots of food. Lots of fried food.

dead muppets
Elmo and Cookie Monster learned the hard way, nobody likes a snitch.

business was brisk
It was packed with food and people.

ferris wheel
It’s always strange to see a Ferris Wheel on a city street.

Around all this food, Pete is truly loving life.

daishi tells me italians love fried food
… fried food, …

italian musicians
… and some Italian guys.

Time to leave Little Italy.

Oh, and I didn’t know Tony had a gift shop. Invoking the Pseudoreal Rule of Gift Shops, thus ends the 2008 Feast of San Gennaro Festival.

(September 20) Dragged myself to Software Freedom Day Party at Limewire, having pitched it all week to various parties. A few hours walking around with my bad back was enough, but it was well worth going.

The rooftop at Limewire is suh-weet,

empire state building
The view ain’t too shabby either,

paul garrin
Met some new interesting people, like Paul Garrin,

Saw familiar interesting people, like Forest Mars and Sunny Dubey,

eben moglen, defender of the faith
Heard Eben Moglen speak,

Saw friends, like Tony_M, (right)

"evil dave williams"
I finally “met” people I already knew, like Dave Williams,

the streets always have traffic
Took in more of the view,

jay sulzburger approved bathroom
And finally saw the bathrooms Jay Sulzburger spoke so avidly of.
