Happy 2 year anniversary!

Armory Plaza #2 Party

Remember two years ago on April 16th, 2005? It was a Saturday around 8:30 in the morning when our good neighbors decided to tear down the fence and introduce themselves.

"Where's my complimentary Armory Plaza designer logo swag filled tote?"
I love candles! How about something from Bricolage Designs new aromatherapy line of D.o.B.-friendly scents? They have a slightly dirty, lingering (but not overpowering) scent that makes it the hands-down favorite of candle connoisseurs year in and year out. "Good times" as Jeri Blank would say.

Getting Biblical

Something like a near record breaking 8'' of rain fell on NYC in a 24 hour period on Saturday night and Sunday. The kind of real scum scrubbing rain that finally washes away all the sick whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, and junkies, off the streets of the South Slope. Ironically, Alternate Side of the Street Parking was not suspended, so I still had to move my car for this mornings street cleaning.

New Crack!

Wow, check out the new crack on the side of the now vacated 1504 8th Avenue. It formed over night. It's the one starting just above the spray painted "B". The one without any crack monitors on it yet. Then there's that massive crack that runs the entire height of the building. It has spread wide open, especially at the top near the parapet wall.

DOB inspectors issued a Vacate Order and taped off the parking lot with forsythia colored caution tape.

Love the Pole and the Hole
In an attempt to brace the deep foundation walls they are using everything but the kitchen sink, including the left over pilings welded at angles to brace the corners.

CrackCams installed with two cameras-One pointing into The Pit and the other trained on the failing wall of 1504. Possibly a new public access channel? Where can I get a subscription?

Is anyone still noticing that The Memorial Baptist Church continues to crack. "Good Times"
