(Dec 22) I’ve been having health problems. As a result, December has gone by and nothing much has happened. December is usually slow, but the warm weather means things are actually still moving along around here.

not a nineeleven sticker
I was in the city to attend a business party

no, really, really loves it
Apparently someone in this neighborhood really loves weed.

i think it's the red
I have a feeling nobody but me likes this one

my memory isn't what it used to be
I don’t remember Wall St. having a tree. Is that new?

(Aug 1) The second half of my trip from downtown to Penn Station.

dog urinal
The suburban hydrants are all painted yellow. I like this better.

i love it not
Even the buildings want to be loved

birds are evil dinosaur progeny
How inviting

damaged, though
This undoubtedly is a Jim Power mosaic.

grace church
When these churches went up, they were probably the tallest things around. Today, they seem small indeed.

creepy, yo
Patriotism meets Halloween

this is what amazon.com eats
A relic that will doubtless soon be gone

get your super-expensive produce here!
Passing through the farmer’s market

it sure is shiny though
The statue of Andy Warhol for no apparent reason

no longer the tallest in the city though
Empire, revealed

city rats don't hang out and chill
What have we here?

i wonder who's behind it?
The hoax of the day

but it's cheap to feed
This faux rat probably ended the day stolen

Then back to the land of ‘meh’

(Aug 1) A trip to see a client downtown. I walked back up Broadway as I have many times before, knowing this time, like the other times, would be different from any other time.

Seen passing through Jamaica Station… WTF.

probably not
They abbreviate all the bad things. Coincidence?

i've only photographed it a dozen times now
I need to find out what this is

a tower rises again
It’s still a surprise anything ever got started

up broadway
I set out after visiting a client, and passed through City Hall Park

i might have the wrong title/artist
Thomas Schütte
“Memorial for Unknown Artist”

that's a lot of ketchup

oh yes it is
Elmgreen & Dragset
“It’s Never Too Late to Say Sorry”

Plaques from a simpler time?

serpents strangling priests
Justin Matherly
“New Beaches”

federal plaza
I left the park, heading up Broadway….
Beverly Pepper
“Manhattan Sentinels”

on the other side of the plaza
One more sentinel

The blimp was out filming the golf tournament that was clogging my trains with obnoxious drunk fratboys and former fratboys.
(That spot annoys the shit out of me, yet I’m not going to fix it.)

trumpet vine
I grew up with these all around.

These were in a garden approaching Atlantic Ave. & Flatbush Ave. I had to look twice to believe what I was seeing.

hanging out
The gardens on Carroll St. in Carroll Gardens really do remind me of suburbia.

now playing.... church ave for a limited multi-year engagement
Typical of MTA construction, it’s going to take so long to complete, they changed all the permanent signage on the whole line.

peeling ceiling
This however, is not part of what they’re going to be fixing.

(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.
