[Norrie] Nets are facing a (possibly major) shooting issue this season: After trade deadline: 35.4% from 3 (Rank: 20th) Take out Joe Harris and Seth Curry, drops to 34.2% (25th) Like the off-season moves, but it’s hard to tell a lot of stories where this gets so, so much better https://www.rawchili.com/3079605/
Reed Crandall, who died OTD in 1982, was an illustrator and penciller of #ComicBooks; he was best known for the 1940s Quality Comics' Blackhawk and for stories in EC Comics during the 1950s https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/usa/new-york-marvel/?s=mb #travel #NewYorkCity
[Gross] #Isles getting to some scrimmage time on Day 3 of camp. Isaiah George remains paired with Ryan Pulock, as has been the case the first two days. Expectation is George returns to junior team, but he’s looked solid here. And in development camp. Good with the puck. https://www.rawchili.com/3079533/
[Stephenson] Faceoff drills with Coach Peca. What’s interesting about this is, Nick Bonino is a lefthanded shooter, messing around taking draws righthanded. https://www.rawchili.com/3079531/
Hilly Kristal, born OTD in 1931, owned the CBGB club in #NewYorkCity, which opened in 1973 and closed in 2006 over a rent dispute https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/usa/new-york-mudd-club/?s=mb #music #travel

🥥 When I first got to #NewYorkCity in 1971 I was constantly befuddled about determining my location until a kind person pointed out this fact about avenues and streets to me.
I hope it came across as an attempt to be helpful.
YOU are welcome. Debra.
PS: Eye forgot to express how much I like this image, and the flood of good memories it brought back. 🥥
The #NewYorkCity Department of Education's ability to deliver even extremely good news in the most insane way possible is going to be the death of me, I swear.
(My child just cleared the waitlist and got offered a slot at our #1 choice for a high school... four days after the school year started. This is no way to run a railroad in my opinion, but I'll take it.)
We had *massive* immigration back when Ellis Island was processing floods of new people (including some of my immigrant ancestors!). It helped us turn NYC from a middling, up-and-coming town to "the Greatest City in the World". Adams needs STFU and take #immigration out of his goddamn mouth.
Roaming is the story of three young #Canadian women meeting up for a getaway to #NewYorkCity. Zoe and Dani are high-school best friends who haven't seen each other since they graduated and decamped for universities in different cities. Fiona is Dani's art-school classmate, a glamorous and cantankerous artist with an affected air of sophistication.
Having come from #SanFrancisco (where people famously leave their hearts, as the classic song commemorates) here to #NewYorkCity specifically because of love (to be with my sweetie, who I met online), this just feels amazingly appropriate.

This is tremendous news - #CovidIsNotOver, & the more people who have access to good masks to wear in public, esp indoor spaces, the safer we ALL are.

Why have over 13,000 rent-stabilized apartments in #NewYorkCity been sitting vacant for multiple years? And wouldn't getting them back on the market help the #homelessness crisis? https://gothamist.com/news/more-than-13k-rent-stabilized-units-in-nyc-are-sitting-empty-for-multiple-years-report-finds

Hey Mastodoners (is that a thing?) I just found out that my book Naming Gotham won an award for history excellence!! It's not public yet so I can't share the details, but wow! I am over the moon thrilled. #NamingGotham #AwardWinning #History #histodon @histodons #bookworm #historyteacher #newyork #newyorkcity (photo of some lovely #NYC #streetart just for fun)
One of the weirdest things about having moved to #NewYorkCity is that the wind, and the clouds, can blow in basically any direction. Sure, it's most usual for them to come from over Jersey, heading eastward. But right now they're going northwesterly, and that's not that unusual.
I know I was complaining about noise a bunch last week. Things could be so much worse, though. I was just cranky. I'm fairly sure I don't actually have #hyperacusis — and my heart goes out to those who do. All my sympathy. Trying to live in #NewYorkCity with hyperacusis sounds difficult, and I salute those who do. (Though, as the article says, there are noises even in rural places.) https://www.curbed.com/2023/08/hyperacusis-noise-living-new-york-city.html
Some #COVID notes and URLs from my clipboard:
https://mbcolli.shinyapps.io/SARS2EWSP/_w_e1a64648/ I have finally found #NYC wastewater numbers with low enough lag time that I can use them to help me make decisions. Unfortunately current prevalence is on an uptick.
Quick free PCR testing still available in #NewYorkCity https://www.nyc.gov/site/doh/covid/covid-19-rapid-testing.page
https://erictopol.substack.com/p/preventing-long-covid and https://erictopol.substack.com/p/a-break-from-covid-waves-and-a-breakthrough have somewhat recent roundups of metformin and Paxlovid as effective treatments to prevent #LongCOVID.
OTD (in irony) in 1994, Mayor Rudy #Giuliani tried to convince GOP leaders to hold their 1996 convention in #NewYorkCity to minimize the role of the party's radical right wing, saying "it would diminish that influence in the party, and that would be very, very good for the way the #Republican convention would be presented nationally."
