Random Stuff I Saw Walking the Streets of New York

Awhile back I was flown out to New York to shoot a piece for the TV show Good Day New York.  It’s no longer online but I promise it was cool.

Anyways, while walking around I clicked photos of all the strange shit I came across, so I figured I’d share them with you.  Wandering New York is definitely one of the best FREE things you can do in the world.

Women’s bathroom at the BCC

I ended up getting pretty wasted at The Bushwick Country Club and found myself pissing in women’s bathroom.  I’d like to think of this as like a toilet paper cow because it reminds me of udders.  Gentlemen, this is why we will ultimately lose the battle of the sexes.  We can never win against this kind of brilliance.

Sid and Nancy

Sid and Nancy

I know it’s hard to tell because this is such a shitty and blurry picture but these two looked just like Sid and Nancy.  It was kinda unnerving because I was thinking, “hey, aren’t they supposed to be dead?”.  Being that punk is way too much work for me.

Somewhere in the West Village

I found this while walking around the West Village one day and thought it was really pretty.  It looks like a magic doorway where, if you knock the right way and say a password, you will get to pass through and walk into Victorian New York.  Truthfully, if I ever sell out and become a total yuppie, I want you to know that it’s just because I want to own a townhouse in the West Village.  What a lovely neighborhood.

A tiny bag of weed

This is a really tiny bag of shwag weed I found on the street in Williamsburg.  Really, who the hell buys nickel sacks of shitty pot?  I mean, other than me when I was 15.

Done by NYU art students...or maybe Voldemort.

I found this in the window of some NYU art school.  It looked like some kind of Muppet holocaust. Actually, to be more accurate, it looks like Jim Henson’s Workshop was been targeted by Vlad the Impaler.  Who knew the Muppets were so unpopular in Transylvania?
