Wizards know best.

Frankly speaking

The Papaya King, at 86th and Third on the UpperEastSide since 1932, will reopen newly renovated in just about a week, the workmen said.

Hot diggity dog.

The Williamsburg Waterfront

The Summer Concert series rocked the WilliamsBurg Waterfront last weekend with a killer triple bill that featured so much talent it’s hard to know where to begin. Fran Healy from Travis opened with his trademark of deeply felt humanity with a tiny spark of genius. 

You know something is going on when it’s one guy, one guitar and an outdoor crowd falls silent.


Ingrid Michaelson was next. Indie-saucy-pop-cute, very serious about her career and a little silly the entire time, Ingrid’s fantastic songs have been used all over television and she is one of the very few to earn this tier of recognition without the support of a major label. 

It’s easy to see why. She and her band are awesome.

But THEN....... CAME........ KEANE.

What a set. Monumental. There is no other word. I’ve seen a lot of shows.

I was blown away.

Film at 11.

I love vintage cameras.

Hat tip to Tiffany and Company's windows, Fifth and 57th, shot right through the glass, and

my trusty AE-1, from 1977.

High octane posting

The Shell station on Third Avenue got a gas delivery the other day.

The driver told me the tanks are made of aluminum because it's inexpensive, it doesn't rust, it's lightweight and it doesn't spark when struck.

He also explained the tank itself is internally subdivided into five segments, so that a puncture of a fully loaded fuel truck can lose only one fifth of its payload at most.

Makes sense. Who knew?

Can you spot the camera?

There it is!

NYC Green Carts

I think the fruit man around the corner on Bruckner is very cool.

He's legit, too.
