Misery Loves Company.

Remember this boat?

It was first featured here in July, on the night we didn't want to go home (ahhh, summer!).

Well, it's still right there where the owner dumped it. Just looks a lot more miserable, now.

But look - awww - now it's got more company.

A very spoiled Spoiler.

Clearly this dumper wasn't as concerned about being identified as the dumper of the white one.

They didn't go to the trouble that the white boat's owner did to anonymize theirs. Maybe they just figured this is the boat dumping place. That's sure what it's starting to look like.

Or maybe being from the Patchogue Shores Marina, they just figured Brooklyn's as good a place as any to dump their hunk o' junk. Hey, it's the city, who's gonna notice?

Well, let the record show -

Yo. I noticed.

p.s. - apropos of yesterday's post - reading the Times on the way to work this morning, I noticed another article about a well-known eminent domain case. It just seems like there's so much of this going on.

p.p.s. and apropos of nothing - Wow! Look! NYC's got a new public toilet!

OK, maybe that doesn't sound that thrilling, but NY is notorious for lack of facilities. Funny thing is that the Times writer is all falling to pieces over the Star-Treklike marvels of this wonder of modern sanitary science - but I seem to remember using similar facilities in London when I was there during & after college (late 80's/early 90's - just at the right time that I now can't give blood because I could have mad cow disease - if I ever start mooing and lashing my tail, take cover & don't wave anything red).

Actually I seem to recall a push to get these several years ago, got nixed because the proposed designs weren't Americans with Disabilities Act compliant.
