(Nov 29) It’s become crazy time. My landlord is liquidating his life’s possessions. I’m trying to keep mine from going out the door with his. Still don’t know where I’m going to land, and Port Jefferson doesn’t feel like home because of it.

At one corner of my desk

Viza gave me this. I wonder if Josh still has his?

wreathes o' electric
The town has decorated for the season and its Dickens Festival

through the lookingthrough glass
The car still feels like something new and transient in my life

won't buy again
This pre-seasoned chicken was all that seemed suitable. It was horrible.

Port Jefferson Village

strange things have been afoot at casa george
Tick tick tick. That’s the sound of Port Jefferson running out.

(Jun 15) Perhaps the last NYLUG meeting has been held. The High Line has been extended. There’s still bits of it lying around all over.

what street is this?
In the distance, that building whose name I can’t remember

Robert Moses had a name for this, he called it

sometimes you feel like a nut
And bits of wire and buckets of construction remains in various places

There it is again

Viza couldn’t believe I looked down and saw this.

(September 5) The purpose of the journey to West Sayville was Bradstock, a festival that originated in nearby Blue Point, and has wandered a bit around Long Island before settling in my old hometown of West Sayville.


Kids, and Hula Hoops

Pete and Lisa

And lots and lots of people. This is the first year they sold out.

blue point brewery
There was beer. And not shit beer. Louis and Viza would have approved.



Pete bought us some peace sign pins from the hippies.


A number of people were flying kites. I understand this is traditional.

great south bay
The Great South Bay. I used to spend all my time on the north shore though. Go figure.

(June 26) Viza and I went to a presentation at the Marriott Marquis, and then afterward to cleanse ourselves of Times Square, we walked over to the High Line. I like the park, but it seems to me the view is more interesting than the park itself. I’m not sure if that’s what they intended or not.

You can still (barely) see the tracks

the original air train
In 2010, it’s hard to imagine locomotives several stories overhead

sailing down the hudson
New Jersey. You don’t want to go there. Nobody does.

even the sun can't bear to look directly at jersey

meat packing district
I wonder what it costs to live in those apartments

apparently the stop sign here is optional
While we were there, I counted dozens of cars, mostly cabs, running the stop sign.

and the hotel actually encourages flashers
The ExhibitionistStandard Hotel is built above the High Line and offers parkgoers a free peep show.

(September 11) For this year’s Tribute In Light, I decided to go to the Brooklyn Bridge. I probably should have gone further north, but Viza met me there and we ended up having one of those only in New York encounters with two girls that borrowed my tripod. Without further comment…
