Picture of the Day
February 29, 2020

They're tearing up the streets near me to replace some sewer pipes and I like it.
Shit runs downhill but I just walk, enjoy the quiet of temporary closures as I bop
down to Broadway to run the usual errands--post office, library, acupuncture. It's
the little things, the slow pace of living in a place where most basic needs can be
met within walking distance. Someone with even more time on their hands drew
this chalk mandala on the stoop of this dreamy building that's been languishing
for years, boarded up and vacant. What's the story? My guess is it needs costly
repairs but, hell, I'd be willing to take a crack at it if it ever went on the market.
Fat chance in a neighborhood where vacant lots go for $750K, so I move along.
