here comes summer

Posted on July 29, 2012


The other day I was sitting outside Smooch with my friend Ryan and he says to me, ‘here comes summer’!  I heard some music and turned around to see a man coming up the sidewalk with his own mobile sound system including boom box and whistle.  I see similar music men regularly in Bed-Stuy, sometimes on bikes … sometimes with shopping carts.  Ryan’s right, that is summer!

Just had my 7th guest to stay in the Map Room.  Jesse, a buddy of mine who runs Global Youth Connect was in between a sublet and a trip to Rwanda, and holed up here for a week.
