This weekend, why not wander out of the Middle Ages and into Ephemeral New York? This new blog, set up by a great friend of mine, exists to chronicle “an ever-changing city through faded and forgotten artifacts,” including 19th-century bicycle ads, ghostly painted advertisements, and long-gone elevated trains.
I’ve had the pleasure of bumming around the boroughs with the blogger in question. She loves New York, she has a sharp eye for historical curiosities, and her observations promise to be “sometimes wry and often wistful” rather than predictably snarky. Bookmark her blog or add her to your feed reader; her scans and snapshots are a welcome respite from the endless stream of words, words, words.
