What do people watching the ball drop do when they have to go to the bathroom but there aren’t any bathrooms? The NY Post has the news that isn’t fit to print in that other New York newspaper.

The only block of regular-looking houses in Manhattan

with 39 comments

See Google Streetview.

And I mean the island of Manhattan, not Marble Hill.

Terrorism in Manhattan (again)?

Pipe bomb explodes in underground pedestrian underground walkway near Port Authority or 8th Avenue subway?

“Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the man was inspired by ISIS and originally from Bangladesh.”

As in many other cases of terrorism, the terrorist was too incompetent to make a bomb that exploded correctly. Lucky for us. If he had successfully exploded the bomb in a crowded subway car, he could have killed large numbers of people.

We are lucky the terrorists have low IQ.

Terrorist said to be 27 years old, lives in Brooklyn, moved to United States from Bangladesh 8 years ago.

His name is Akayed Ullah.

The guido Congressman is back!

http://www.silive.com/news/2017/09/in_oct_1_announcement_grimm_wi.html#incart_river_home_pop

This could only happen on Staten Island.

The article also reports that Grimm has the support of Guy Molinari, for whom a spaceship was named in the TV series The Expanse. (I say that the most mind-blowing part of the whole series is that in the future, a spaceship will be named after a guido politician from Staten Island.)

American Museum of Natural History racist against indigenous peoples

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/oct/11/museum-natural-history-theodore-roosevelt-statue-protest

Watch the video in the article to see extreme SJWism in action. It’s pretty sickening.

And the most racist part of the entire museum is the statue of Teddy Roosevelt out front, on horseback, flanked by an American Indian in headdress and a half-naked black man wearing primitive African garb.

I fear for the future of this statue.

Note that this protest happened last October before Trump was elected President. It was not in response to Charlottesville or other recent events. But it does demonstrate that the demands to take down statues is not going to end with Confederate stuff.

* * *

The purpose of the statue was to show that Teddy Roosevelt was a humanitarian, nobly concerned with the welfare of lesser races. But SJW types believe that it memorializes the belief that Native Americans and blacks are inferior to whites.

The streets are full of dog pee

Just an observation, not saying whether that’s good or bad.

Another journalist reading my blog?

David Marcus, senior contributor to The Federalist, writes in the NY Times about WFAN talk radio being pro-Trump:

New York’s conservatism is not that of Rush Limbaugh — it is Francesian. It’s guys who drive trucks and install air-conditioners saying, “Why can’t I have my say?” On WFAN they do have their say, often in eloquent and impassioned tones.

The air-conditioner installer sounds like Yakov. And from time to time, I’ve mentioned my blue-collar grandfather who was a truck driver.

New York 1911

https://www.moma.org/calendar/exhibitions/3858

This was filmed in 1911, and just shows various live scenes around New York City.

This is what I learned:

1. Ferries are a popular mode of transportation.
2. Lots of men smoking pipes.
3. No one in 1911 would leave home without wearing a hat.
4. For men, a jacket, white shirt, and tie is a nearly universal outfit. Plus a hat.
5. Women don’t wear pants, only skirts or dresses. Plus a hat.
6. Vehicular traffic is a mix of horse-drawn carriages, motorcars, and trolleys. But no one riding any bicycles.
7. There are no traffic lights, no stop signs, no crosswalks, no lane markings. The streets look like scary chaos.
8. There are elevated trains where today none exist. (well, I already knew that, but it was still cool to see them.)
