    Park your car in DUMBO for 24 hours and look at the black dust that covers it. Crazy. You have car traffic on 3 sides of DUMBO 24/7 dumping in….Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge and BQE

    Also miss Izzie on the Columbia Heights area. New guy is also great though.

    The car has an MD plate, but got a ticket (and the angry sign). Short of being too nosey, I sort of love seeing these little glimpses into someone else’s last straw.

    It may not be the best solution, but you might consider using the package-acceptance services at the UPS Store on Montague Street. It is probably not the most convenient solution, but it would put an end to missing packages.

    Lol. Nice find. I wonder what the beef is. You would think it would be someone from the townhouses (or offices therein) where that Benz parks. Or someone walked from afar with that cardboard sign, which paints a pretty funny picture in itself.

    Right? It just raises all kinds of more questions.

    I just saw the “Yumtime” episode of “Billions” on Showtime with Paul Giamatti, in which he makes some guy whose dog has just crapped on the Promenade pick up the turd with his bare hands! Yes!!!

    Black dust on cars is the opening for questions about the nature of that dust.
    Given that the NYC DEP and the federal EPA will not take indoor air pollution samples, an examination of the layering of particles on cars is the way to open the inquiries. It’s clear that diesel emissions are not bound to remain outdoors.

    Happy lunar new year, everyone; found this lantern hanging from some scaffolding on Pierrepont St, near Pierrepont Pl. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b79a1fbfa5c60fa88ddd025188d12baef2852442ecc16baf599ed1d83c801f57.jpg

    Andrew, nice post (cards) on Brownstoner. I had not seen those postcards before. I especially loved the Marine Room postcard. Nice job.

  • Andrew Porter

    Yes, the Penny Bridge back then was a bridge over the steep incline running down to the docks, which charged 1¢ to save people the time to go inland a block to go around the cut.
