watershed moment

mousetronaut wannabe

Work continues on the Freedom Tower.

The vertical stripe is an exterior elevator derrick, attached temporarily for construction.

The little silver car is right here.

So I waited, to watch the car go up. It shot up like a rocket. I was totally unprepared.

See it already at the top of the glazing?

It’s enclosed, but there is also an open work platform on the top of the car.

Yeah. Like a three-ticket ride at DisneyLand.

I wonder if you have to be 40 inches tall to ride it.

well let me tell you 'bout the way she looked


“I got to stay out of trouble with the law.”

TNB (currently The Nasty Boyz) was a Bronx graffiti crew founded in Yonkers around 1980.

One of the original crew members was a boy named Julius Cavero whose Father was an immigrant from Peru and his Mother an immigrant from Puerto Rico.

He was tall and thin like a “T”  and the name stuck,
 ”Terrible TKid.”

At different times in its history TNB stood for The Neck Breakers (“cuz that's what we did to people.”) and The Nations Best.  

TKID’s reputation for bombing quickly spread as he began to tag the IRT 1-2-3-4-5 and 6 trains in the Bronx.

Prolific painting or marking with ink. To cover an area with your tag, etc.

The most basic form of graffiti, a writer's signature with marker or spray paint.

But TKID had real talent and soon he moved on to “piecing” buildings in the South Bronx.

A graffiti painting, short for masterpiece, generally agreed to take significant time and have at least three colors.

TKID, now 50 years old, is also a member of the famous MAC crew in Paris, France.
