FIPS Broken News: Lights Out! No NYFOL for You!

Photo credit: Rachael Stone OlmiThere is screaming. I am screaming at my kids because we live in NYC, and we should do stuff that you can only do in NYC, and they are screaming because they don’t want to go. But we don’t care that they don’t want to go, and we make them! Yeah, that’s right.

I mean, Jesus, it’s not like we’re asking them to tromp through rooms of Dutch masters or something. This is a cool light show in DUMBO; the kind of culture-ish thing kids probably enjoy once they get there. And if our expectation is correct, and they do like it, we get a delicious I-told-you-so moment.

Well, fuck, the I-told-you-so moment belonged to them this time, but not because the show wasn’t cool. We got out of the F train at York, around 8pm last Saturday night, along with many, many other light-show enthusiasts. Likewise, the streets and sidewalks en route to the main viewing spot were paaaacked.

After a lot of wending and some light shoving, we arrived at one of the main viewing points -- ready to be dazzled, kids? -- just in time to learn that the show is closing down three hours early, because the size of the crowds were a public safety issue. We did get to see a cop say “Disperse!” which I thought was kind of exciting and maybe made the whole trip worthwhile, um, right, kids?

Anybody Need A House to Live In? They're Practically Giving It Away.

I've submitted my offer and financials but no one seems to be getting back to me. I just can't imagine why? It's only a $14 million LIMESTONE MANSION that Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany used to live in! You know the one. On the corner of Carroll and Prospect Park West. I used to walk by there all the time and see those two BBQ'ing. What, I don't know because they were both impossibly thin.

But that's not the point. The point is that gorgeous 1899 limestone at 17 Prospect Park West is up for sale again and it's price tag is a modest $14 million, as I already mentioned. This is according to Curbed who was nice enough to provide a very brief history of the park side palace, along with some never-before-seen real estate porn shots of the house's newly renovated interior.
