Bora rever uma voltinha pela Times Square em fevereiro.
O lugar é lindooo, mas estava um frioooo, que até pinguim estava de casaco.
Eu tinha saido de São Paulo com um calor de 38° e sensação térmica de 200°, um forno, aí pousamos em New York com sensação de -10°, my God, que friooo, e olha que 15 dias antes a minha amiga @neide_lyla tinha pego -17°, um verdadeiro freezer.
Dessa vez faltou a @idomoura
para dar um encanto ao vídeo, e o meu amigo Edu com certeza se arrependeu de ter inventado de viajar junto, pois andou tanto pela cidade, que queria até alugar uma cadeira de rodas motorizada.
Pô Edu, New York é pra andar mesmo. Hahaha.
New York, New York e boa viagem.
Let's go for a walk around Times Square.
The place is beautiful, but it was cold, even a penguin was wearing a coat.
I had left São Paulo with a heat of 38 ° and a thermal sensation of 200 °, an oven, then we landed in New York with a feeling of -10 °, my God, how cold, and look that 15 days before my friend @ neide_lyla, had caught -17 °.
This time @idomoura missed
to give the video a charm, and my friend Edu certainly regretted having invented traveling together, as he walked around the city so much that he even wanted to rent a motorized wheelchair.
Hey Edu, New York is really for walking. Haha ha.
New York, New York and have a nice trip.

For those of you who have been in Park Slope for awhile, you likely remember the unusualness that used to mark this corner of 2nd Street and 7th Avenue (it was dubbed "the house that whimsy built"). By the time I attended elementary school at 321, this corner was abandoned and mysterious. How could such a prime real estate location be abandoned?
Well, it hadn't always been abandoned. In the 1980s and 1990s, this would have been the Landmark Pub, run by an eccentric artist named Dorothy Nash with the help of her two daughters (Dorothy Nash was also the owner of the colorful building on 2nd street with murals decorating its facade). A New York Times article quoted Thomas Pendergast, 72, a longtime resident of the neighborhood: "We stepped inside and there were all sorts of garbage, dolls and freaky stuff... It looked like the kind of place that Norman Bates would be a night manager." Still many, such as Pendergast, remember it fondly as a being weird in a good way and brave enough to even be open as a bar in the 1980s. They admire the fact that the family was trying to create spaces for artists and the community (they would later try an art gallery in the location), which certainly seems noble in light of the temptation to sell.
Another neighborhood veteran, Brook Dramer, described the pub as follows: "Somehow people thought it was oh-so-Boho [bohemian?!] to sit in an unheated building, listening to Sailorman Jack sing as they banged toys in time to the music and drank cheap beer that was served by one of Dorothy's beautiful daugers (I think she was about 8-years-old) while the younger daughter slept on a couch next to a heater near the stage."
I was not able to find any photos of the inside (except from the cover of a photographic memoir about the pub one of the daughters wrote for her mother). I would be interested in buying it except that it costs $500! If anyone ever frequented the Landmark Pub please comment below and tell us what you thought!
One of the few surviving remnants of the Park Slope plane crash of 1960 is the different colored bricks atop 126 Sterling Place (look closely at pic 1).
On Friday, December 16th 1960, a United Airlines Plane bound for Idlewild Airport (today JFK), collided over Staten Island with a TWA plane. This became known as the Park Slope plane crash and killed 128 people (in the air) and 6 on the ground. Ten brownstones went aflame, along with a funeral home, deli and laundromat. The Pillar of Fire Church located in the middle of the block was also destroyed. This crash would be the first time the black box was used to determine the cause of a collision.
There was one initial survivor of the crash, 11-year-old boy Stephen Baltz, who was traveling to Yonkers to spend Christmas with relatives. He was thrown from the plane into the snow where his burning clothing was put out. Although alive and conscious, he was badly burned and had inhaled burning fuel. Sadly, he died of pneumonia the next day.
For more info about Stephen take my upcoming Park Slope Halloween Tour in October. Let’s just say his soul might never have left the area.
