Below a few "what's up" emails that recently hit the 78thand2nd inbox. If you can shed some light, your intel is apprectiated in the comments.
77th and 2nd: I'm going to guess that this email submission from RK was an inebriated whim—based on the time sent (2:30 a.m.) and the location (in front of Brother Jimmy's on 2nd)—but nonetheless, he raises a question about the ubiquitous "1849" stickers plastered everywhere on the Upper East Side. RK asks: "Dude, I'm standing in front of Brother Jimmy's, what's up with all the 1849 stickers everywhere." I actually don't know. And my research—a google search—has procured nothing. Anyone with info, please hit the comments.
73rd and East End: The New York Department of Sanitation on 73rd is under close watch by Jason who writes: "Any idea what is going on at the DOS station on 73rd and the FDR? It's been under construction for a few months now and you can actually see all the way through to 74th Street, through the building if you look between where the temp doors are—couldn’t do that before."
There was a small crew out there this morning—directing a backhoe, standing around—and the guys on the scene confirmed construction was going on (looks like they’re clearing out the entire interior of that building?) but were mum on what the ultimate goal is. Any DOS-insiders out there?
