noir in daylight


This abandoned water slide was part of a larger, go-kart focused theme park called “Waterfall Park” on Hatteras Island, in North Carolina’s Outer Banks.


Mohonk Mountain House is a European-style, castle-like resort in the Catskills. Hiking up to it from the woods, it doesn’t quite feel inhabited from a distance, but it is still in operation, after about 150 years. It has an almost Grand Budapest Hotel presence.

Never turn down the opportunity to jump into a swimming hole.

It was a good summer.

I need someone to Honey I Shrunk the Kids me so I can truly explore how epic this urban forest is starting to become. I suppose doing an army crawl through the vacant lot could achieve the same effect.

Recently I’ve made a few short trips back to New York.

Vaping: still in.

043016_03
Neck tattoos on mannequins: still in.

043016_04
Fixed gears: still in.

Curry Row: still there. Not sure why we were always Panna II people, as I’ve met people who always opted for Milon instead. And has anyone been to the downstairs spots?

I was surprised to see UFO and seemingly Sace!? on this East Village-based delivery truck. I’m not super up on NYC graffiti, but if that really is a Sace piece (the late artist, Dash Snow), then it’s at least 7+ years old, or is a tribute? Or maybe I’m failing at reading it.

There’s still room to grow on the east side¬†of Manhattan, surprisingly. This is the site of a former Con Edison plant, and here’s a Times piece about it from 3 years ago.
