Wheelchair Lift on 3rd Floor

I was at a school in Manhattan that had a 3rd floor auditorium. Near the stage was a wheelchair lift, for hoisting wheelchair users up to the stage. It was probably installed to satisfy accessibility mandates. Ironically, there are no elevators in the building, so it is highly unlikely that anyone using a wheelchair will make it up to the 3rd floor.

The wheelchair lift — which probably cost a mint to purchase and install — is filled with garbage and detritus….

View from the River and on the Ferry

I was leaving a school in Long Island City, Queens, and took the ferry back to my office in Manhattan. As I got closer to the city I zoomed in a bit on this cool skyscraper by the East River.

And what do you think of this view of the New York skyline?

Protect the Queen

On my way to a Middle School After School (MSAS) publishing party last week I saw a van being swarmed by bees. Someone said the queen bee was inside. Wonder what happened to the driver?

Enormous Elevator

I have seen smaller studios.



Subway Special

On the way to a school I saw these trains parked at the 2nd Avenue Subway station.

Pup in Boots

I saw this dog walking down the streets in some kickin’ Ferragamos!

Smart Table at 811M

A kindergarten classroom at 811M uses a smart table and smart board to learn about the solar system.
