Notify NYC, the city’s official hotline, sent email warnings early today (Thursday) about temperatures between 100 and 110 F. Outdoor events all over the borough and beyond were being cancelled via email. Bay Ridge-based Narrows Botanical Garden cancelled their outdoor film program tonight. A group in influential lawyers who hoped to sneak away to a Nassau County golf course this afternoon decided to call off the outing. And Starbucks, brilliant purveyor of hot drinks with fancy names, still had long lines because of one simple marketing tool:’ just add ice.’
One of our contributors spotted this promobile for Jekyll & Hyde restaurant at a Manhattan gas station….
While back in Brooklyn, one of our Heights contributors couldn’t resist shooting this over-packed shopping cart .
It stood partially blocking the intersection of Montague and Hicks Streets waiting for the owner, apparently a recycling maven….
…who then arduously pushed the cart against traffic to parts unknown.
