Awwww. . .looks like this little guy got left behind in the parking lot, after the last rain storm.

Operation Wendy's

This fence happens to border the drive-thru of a Wendy's restaurant.

These vines look like reconnaissance scouts.  Maybe they're planning a reclamation initiative!

Once Upon A Time. . .

. . .industry used to really be local, that is within a community or neighborhood.

This factory, along with its smoke stacks, was enclosed within the interior space of a Williamsburg block in Brooklyn.

Interesting, some of the unexpected places that remnants like this, turn up.

Green on the Go

This weekend I volunteered at the New New York DIY Block Party.

One of the vendors there was the Biobus. That would be interesting enough, but what really caught my eye was a little patch of green on the roof at the back of the Biobus

It's called Bus Roots and was conceived of by Marco Antonio Castro Cosio. His idea is to create a fleet of mobile green roofs on the tops of city buses!  Read more about it at here).

Sounds like fun to me!
