“A cardboard car,” I thought. “Now I’ve seen everything.” Since it was sitting in front in front of “Kuwait Shipping, Your Best Bet to West Africa,” perhaps it was merely being protectively wrapped for shipment. But a close look at the picture shows dents/gaps underneath the cardboard, missing/open windows, and a flat tire.
A screenshot from Google street view can save the day, when I forget to take an obvious explanatory picture.
A fairly common sight in the Bronx – Parks Dept. work crews raking up trash along the streets. Others have waved me off, “No pictures of city employees,” but this woman happily posed in front of a pile empty DVD cases. “All African movies,” she explained dismissively.
Natasha interviewed me for News 12. It was very interesting to see how she made the raw video of me and the street scenes, and then later edited, narrated, and collated that into a 90 second spot. We were done filming by 11, and she had to do all that by 1PM, for a 1:45 “Best of the Bronx” broadcast. It’s always interesting to see how professionals, of any sort, do their work.
You gotta love the casitas.
Because you can never have enough London Planetrees.
