These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Basically, it seems Con Edison was working on some underground wiring, underneath St. Mark's Place. Something must have happened, and there was a manhole cover explosion, followed by several other smaller explosions and a fire that was coming up about 6' above street level, which means it was probably 15 foot flames overall. Several other manhole covers on the blockj were also in danger of blowing.

Holy fucking shit. That bar woulda gone up easily too, seeing as it's aaaaaall wood inside. I'm glad that it's safe. Fuckin' Con Ed.
