"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice


Never seen anything like the sheets of ice on the streets and sidewalks of the Bronx this morning. I’m just glad I didn’t bust my ass getting to the subway. All I could think of was Cloris Leachman saying, “The stairway…can be treacherous.” By the time I reached midtown, it was raining and there wasn’t much ice to be found, just slush.

But the ice uptown, man, that was crazy. I told one of the security guards in my building about it and she said, “Welcome to the ‘hood.”

word, that ice was no joke.
my feet slipped a couple of times but thankfully i never fell.
this slightly chubby kid, probably about 9 or 10 was running on the ice on the way to the train at 116th and announced he was great at running on the ice. had to agree, it was pretty impressive.

Still sub-freezing here, so the roads are sheets of ice. Amazing. I can't go anywhere -- can't go to work. They understood.
Good thing I like my house.
