Manhattan at Night, From the Brooklyn Bridge


A small rat noses down the puddled track bed,
Hunched up night-shifters wait for a train.
Elevators at attention with doors closed,
They’re working late on the 32nd floor.

Beautification of Subway stops: Gates Avenue, Brooklyn

One of 4.5 bathrooms (yes, I know!  It doesn't have a soap dish yet.  But one has to get exactly the Correct Soap Dish!  This bathroom is a beautiful grey and white, although it doesn't look like it here.  It also is a fairly large bathroom--I guess I have to spring for a wide-angle lens like all those other people!

Oh yes.  Indoor plumbing!  What a gift, even without soap dishes and towel
racks!

Mission for the day (should you choose to accept it):

1.  Enter into a bathroom; one with tub or shower.  Avoid gas stations, for
example.
2.  Revel in the beauty and convenience of Tile!  Think what a mess the
average shower might make without it.
3.  Check out the very simplicityof a water repellent floor!  Nothing
fancy, just tile, tile, showers, water, toilets with double flush, maybe a
mirror!!!!  A mirror.  What an amazing thing.

No place is more beautiful at night than the view  from the Williamsburg Bridge.
