Saturday Afternoon There Were 2 Lines of People Waiting Near the Corner of 7th St. and Avenue A : One Line for Food the Other Line for Ice Cream

Saturday afternoon 2 lines formed in the EV .One line on Avenue A led folks to a free meal from the Rev. Diane's charitable ministry.Hungry folks got some help surviving in the form of free food .
Another line around the corner , every bit as long as Diane's line and longer lasting , led to a well advertised bourgeois extravaganza at  an ice cream shop.

Thanks to Peter for pointing me to this East Village scene.

Alas Poor Yorick! ...

....I knew him , Horatio ; a fellow of fine jest , of most excellent fancy ; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times ; and now , how abhorred in my imagination it is ! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now?

Stand-Off on a Tree Trunk in Tompkins Square Park

Sunday the rats were brazenly everywhere ,freely walking ,eating and playing in daylight in the company of all the different members , including humans, of the Tompkins Square Park family . Appearing to be more sure of themselves lately they have been seen exploring the daytime world of the TSP lawns and climbing trees. The Tompkins Sqaure Park rats have been quite successful ,they have eaten well and multiplied. This is what rats strive for and such success drives them to find new places to eat well and multiply . 

Now the challenge of finding new domains to master and populate is shaping a new more adventurous young rat that will confront humans in daylight and even challenge squirrels in their trees. Ever adaptable , in TSP the younger rats have surrendered some of their wildness to be able to more effectively exploit the bounty of Tompkins Square Park .

Saturday Night with Ray and Irene

Ray had business all night . His candy store was one of the few businesses open on Avenue A throughout tempest Irene . Ray worked the store all night by himself . With the subway closed down his staff couldn't get to work . Ray said he was prepared to work not just Saturday night alone but all day Sunday and all night Sunday by himself too.He said that his store has to remain open no matter what happens . He said that he can't close because he has no way to lock up his candy store securely.
