I got carded on Monday. I just think the bartendress wanted to see my address.

Can you imagine a couple of hardcore NY gangbangers getting into a knife fight? People would think it was cute.

I can just picture you walking along wearing a Steed suit, perfect tie and impeccable pocket square . . . and carrying a samurai sword. Passing cops are shaking their heads thinking, "No way. I'm not writing that report."

tender/bartender is masculine? I suppose it's understandable to want to over-compensate in some things.

What a shame. Foo was denied an opportunity to whip out his hard-won green breast wallet.

Snowing. Yet again.

Spring is never coming.

121 and 123 collapsed due to the fire.  You can see the rear facade of 123 still standing in that picture.  119 partially collapsed (see photo below) and was taken down by being blasted with water.  In the photo above, 125 is the building with the six white windows - smoke and fire damage but not structurally damaged.  Three other buildings sustained damage but I'm not sure of the addresses of those.

 

119 2nd. Ave:

Didn't know that the damage was that extensive.

Update - 125 may have to come down.  This story talks about a family that lived on the 6th and 7th floors of 125 from 1900 until 2005.  In 1956 they were paying $35 a month rent.

In 1956 I lived at 42 Clinton St. ( between Rivington and Stanton Sts ), with my parents. It was a 2 bedroom walkup and we paid $40 a month rent. The building is still there.

My Grandma Rose lived on Houston St, just about directly across from Katz's Deli. It was in a subsidized hi-rise for Seniors. She paid about $20 a month, and complained about the "high rent".

So I renewed my driver's license online and it cost me $80.50. I know this is good for 8 years, and I understand the state needs revenue, but for some reason it irritated me paying it.
