Hoot the Freak

author: kc : Brooklyn, NY


Coney Island mellows in the fall...I think I read these buildings might be "redeveloped," but then again maybe there was talk of some kind of preservation. Anway, I'd miss them.


Forever Hollywood

author: kc : Los Angeles, CA


One of the things that's fun about California is juxtapositions. On the tour of the stars' homes, I learned that Mick Jagger used to live across from Elvis Presley and, given another year or two, Sly Stallone and Ella Fitzgerald would have been neighbors. This goes on after death! Johnny Ramone is right next to Hattie McDaniel! (This, btw, is the Forever Hollywood cemetery, right around the block from Paramount Studios.) (These swans seem to really like hanging around the black marble.) Plus: A gracious farewell. Cecille B. DeMille--It came to this?? Need I say more?


Hedges of the Stars

author: kc : Los Angeles, CA


Back in May, I went to Hollywood and took one of those tours of the stars homes--an air-conditioned bus, a guide both cynical and adoring who was working out comedy routines for his own future television appearances. In short, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The following views came from one block--a block on which Jackie Chan also lived, and our leader was having fun fantasizing about the barbecues. Bea Arthur's roses Kathy Bates's flowers P. Diddy's hydrangeas Special added bonus: They paved paradise and put up a parking lot? This is apparently exactly the parking lot she had in mind. It was once some...


Olde Graf?

author: kc : Queens, NY


Walking around Queens this weekend, I noticed a couple of spots with old, faded, graf-like scrawls---which I gradually realized were slightly elevated on the surface...were painted! Did graf predate spraypaint? Does graf as we know it require spraypaint?


Fleeting Blossoms

author: kc : Queens, NY



Chicken Run

author: kc : New York, NY


A sidewalk drama in Harlem. I was with a walking tour, and we encountered a woman who was trying to rescue a rooster--she'd discovered it wandering the sidewalk and had discovered she could attract its attention and lead it by dangling a shiny CD in front of it. She said she'd been calling anyone--ASPCA, NYPD, 911--for an hour. Snappy feet. The cops finally showed up--to applause! What happened next? I have no idea. I liked the birdy name of the shop next door.


Hip Yard

author: kc : Brooklyn, NY


Red Hook, more or less, as seen from the sea. These photos are actually the work of GGP, whose camery battery had gone dead at an inopportune moment. Nice castle, no? This building, or one like it, is soon to be turned into a Fairway gourmet supermarket--which is definitely part of a move toward gentrification, although unlike Whole Foods, say, I don't think Fairway draws exclusively on the gentrified crowd.
