i’m laughing so hard right now i can’t think of anything more to say here . . . .

what the beep?


it’s the start of memorial day weekend – even if it’s only 9:30  friday morning.   horns have been beeping incessantly since 7:00 am.  here’s what first avenue looked like out my window, from the united nations at 48th street to 51st street:

1st ave traffic mem day 2013 (4) 

and from 52nd up to 56th street:

1st ave traffic mem day 2013 (1) 

if i had to guess, i would say about 10% of the car horns were honking so much they made up for the other 90%.   it’s 9:30 in the morning –  shouldn’t these peeps be at work already?  i’m trying to find the happy in this.

i look forward to rush hour out of the city this evening and hope all of these folks get the rest & relaxation they apparently need.

happy memorial day!

He’s a real button-pusher!

A booze-chugging bum keeps pressing an emergency “call-box” button in Tribeca — forcing firefighters to rush to the scene because he simply wants a comfy spot to sleep off his hangover, FDNY sources said.

Orlando Kerton, 60, has activated a red “fire” button at Walker and Lafayette streets in Manhattan 30 times in the past two months, requesting to be chauffeured to a hospital bed, FDNY sources said.

city cab crash


i was just about to step off the curb to cross 61st street on first avenue today when i noticed a cab trying to manifest a middle lane in between two cars.  he was not very successful.

5 taxi cab accident 1st & 61st

so this poor couple who were just driving along, minding their own business, now have a crashed up car because the cabbie thought he could save 2 seconds getting to where ever it was he was headed.

2 taxi cab accident 1st & 61stthe man who’s car was struck by the time-crazed cabbie got out to assess the situation. he asked the cabbie, in a much calmer tone than i may have had, to straighten his wheels and back up.  the cab driver put the car in reverse without straightening the wheels first, and proceeded to re- swipe the entire length of the passenger side of the car, much to the horror of the woman sitting inside.

1 taxi cab accident 1st & 61stjust when i thought it couldn’t get any worse, the cab moved forward again, going for side swipe #3.

the people who had been stopped at the red light on first avenue eventually got tired of waiting for the cab driver to figure out how to get out of the middle of the intersection and when the light turned green, they drove right up the avenue as if there wasn’t a giant accident in the middle of the road.

and therein lies all the excitement i have for this tuesday.

keep calm & carry on . . . .
