Old and New in Astor Place



Confronting Comfort on Avenue A

He said that he had found the plastic container a few minutes earlier on Avenue A. He noted that his fortuitous discovery was indeed most utilitarian . He intended to use the plastic pickled ginger container as a portable stool this afternoon at the Riot Reunion in Tompkins Square Park .He also enthusiastically volunteered that if drinking all those Reunion beers and later all the free beers at the "Let 'Em eat Cake /Eat the Rich/No Comfort Zone"  street party at the BMW Guggenheim Lab created a need , he would use the covered  container as a portable toilet .

Thursday Sweep and Man with Large Knife in Tompkins Square Park

Thursday evening shortly after 7PM 5 police vehicles including one un-marked vehicle entered Tompkins Square Park . With red lights flashing the vehicles rolled slowly through the more infamous sections of T.S.P. , that is Crusty Row and the chess tables . A man was reported to be on the loose  somewhere near the chess tables with a large orange handled knife .

While 9th precinct personnel at the chess tables were looking for the man with the knife  another NYPD narcotics unit was conducting a traditional Thursday night TSP sweep .Members of this unit very dramatically collared a drug sales suspect  just outside the park on the Avenue A side walk .

The man with the knife was not found .

Sunday Afternoon in Tompkins Square Park

Another old style hard core concert afternoon in TSP Sunday .Some Crustys asked for some time on stage too .They were denied the use of the stage so after the concert  they performed acoustic at the roots of a large elm tree . Some of the Old School objected to their presence and let them know it .One of the Crustys was punched in the face , they all left immediately .

After the concert , the afternoon segued to a colorful catharsis for a more bourgeois group of 200 or so at the Mad Hatter's tea party .Alice of course was there , dressed in blue .Towards the end of the tea party a guerrilla band of saxophonists that call themselves the Baritone Saxophone Army  crashed the tea party. Music was made , the Red Queen gasped.
