NOTHING

(Rear of St. Andrew’s Church, Staten Island – Photos by Bald Punk) I was in the graveyard of old St. Andrew’s Church to take some photos. A broad shouldered man was also there taking photos. He was far enough away so that I could politely ignore him. When I next looked up from the stones, he was a dozen feet from me and coming closer. I blinked […]

Slavery in NYC

I wanted to post something related to the newest episode. So here is a web page devoted to an exhibit titled, “Slavery in NYC.” It’s over at the New York Historical Society.

Driving in Staten Island to a job estimate, I exited the highway and soon after rolled into a traffic jam on Rockland Avenue. It’s a two lane road enshrouded […]
