A crime against language, elementary school teachers and Neanderthals:

Things that make you say hmmmm in NYC

Bullet proof shitting vest

Only in NYC… a portable hotdog stand

I like the security device on this asset... read the remark

Who knew that heaven on earth for women is a store in NYC

Forget Chucky Cheese.... its attack of the Killer rat....

What a way to promote your company’s image… contact number, graffiti and a bad paint cover up

So what time is it around the world

Blog Facelift

Out with old and in with the not so new

Yes its taken me a couple of years to do this but I didn’t mean to have it change this much, I pressed the upgrade button, not knowing that I will lose all my old sidebars. Now I am scrambling to give the original touch.

Sorry, I have been wanting to blog but my pc router is not working for last 10 days…………. I will blog using my laptop but I need a USB to transfer some pics …………….. I am off to get a USB.

New York: The city finally takes a siesta

Big Ben, NYC style

Being insomniac can not be healthy……so finally the New York that never sleeps takes a siesta after 73 years… the since Great Recession in 1929.

Make use of the land you to the max

I have always loved the energy the city has, all the options it provides, the entrainment it provides, but the city is a shadow of its past….. many shops are for sale or rent. You can see that on every corner, discounts are steep in all retail stores and on top of every sale you get an extra 20% to 50% discount if you buy on that day as an extra enticement. These are crazy times for this great city. The recession has hit hard and it visible even in this mighty city.

Spare no expense on the details

I recall first going to NYC in the mid 90’s when it was rough and crime was ramped. There were homeless people and drug peddlers everywhere, I recall a street hustler offering me anything I wanted from drugs to a Green Card to a Social Security Card to a driving license. When we wanted to go an after hour night club at 4 a.m. We ended up going gambling din with heavily armed people by mistake.. . It was just like the movies. I later went in the late 90’s and I was shocked to see how Giuliani has cleaned up the place, he did a great job, his zero tolerance policy did wonders.

It wouldn't be NY without Graffti
10 years later, the city is still safe and clean, the homeless have returned but they are harmless and don’t bother you. The metro is clean and graffiti is a thing of the past. For now the city is taking a breather but they will come back and there is not stopping that.
