Last weekend my friend visited me and drove us around his own car. I felt like I had met a celebrity.

LIFE Magazine, Jan. 7, 1966:Mid-Manhattan gets its first heliport”: Apparently, the traffic congestion between midtown Manhattan and JFK Airport got so bad (“it takes as long to taxi to Kennedy Airport as it does to fly to Boston”) that a heliport was above Grand Central. The one-way fare? Seven dollars (about the same price as a taxi at that time)

The helipad operated from 1965 to 1968, according to the New York Times. It reopened in 1977. However, a failed landing gear caused a helicopter to fall sideways on the roof helipad, and its rotor blade killed five people, including a pedestrian at street level. The helipad did not reopen afterwards.

Read the rest of the sadly-too-optimistic LIFE piece here.

Traffic heading up Lafayette Street in the East Village. The Empire State Building, top right, is shrouded in fog. Rain makes the days gray, but at night, the clouds and fog create a variety of lighting moods.

A taxi makes it way west, near City Hall and Brooklyn Bridge. The grayness in the scene is from a just-passed storm.

A long-exposure shot of traffic at the High Line Park this past Sunday, from the 10th Avenue street theater.
I was working on a site related to SOPA (the Internet regulating law debated by Congress right now) and needed some Internet-ish art. Yeah, this is cliche. But they close the park at 7PM these days.
The site I built is called: http://SOPAopera.org and it attempts to keep track of what Congressmembers are saying about this controversial law. If you remember back in November how Tumblr was randomly censoring stories to protest Congress…this is the issue my site covers.
