a couple months ago i had the dipleasure of watching The Hurt Locker in a Bed-Stuy living room full of disaffected ex-film students. they smoke a lot of pot, produce a lot of awesome Brooklyn musical showcases, and wear combat boots from Opening Ceremony. they also interjected "funny" dialogue during one particularly poignant scene involving a lone Capri-Sun.

Examining the current Ladies Walking Mile

today, for a class, i am going on a self-guided tour of the 19th century "Ladies Walking Mile" of historical department stores, which is bound by 14th st, 6th ave, 23rd st, and Park ave.
