Owing to it being Columbus Day and all, one got to thinking what the old boy might have seen were he to have ever made it to Newtown Creek. Columbus, of course, never got anywhere even remotely close to NYC – but if today’s post was a thought experiment designed to picture a spot that the Dutch Kills Tributary of Newtown Creek flowed to prior to European colonization… well, 40th avenue between 29th street and 30th is a darned good place to visit. Just saying.

  1. Hail Columbus! And his entrepreneurial expertise. The unions have Labor Day. The entrepreneurs have Columbus Day. The so-called “Indians” Columbus found – can you believe this? – didn’t even possess the wheel! They had no geographic knowledge either. The Aztecs and Incas didn’t even know of each other’s existence. The Mayans cut out sacrificial victims’ hearts and then threw their bodies down the pyramid steps. All Hail Columbus! The Great Man of the Hour.
