Tired and overwhelmed is a humble narrator, who is out taking pictures of the greatest city in the history of mankind this week and not attending any Zoom meetings or frankly doing anything he doesn’t want to do. Thereby, this week you’ll be encountering single images here at Newtown Pentacle, in pursuance of taking a short break from the normal blather.

Pictured above is the eastern terminus of the fabulous Newtown Creek, found some 3.8 miles back from the East River in Bushwick/East WIlliamsburg.

  1. Great stuff !! As a former Astoria resident and Plasma Baby fan, I find all of your postings highly enjoyable (and informative.) I’m also curious as to the ways that nature bends & accommodates Man(un)kind. I’ve been known to take guests on sunset drives on the Pulaski Skiway.
    You may already know about the work of John Noble – there is a museum of his works in Snug Harbor, Staten Island. He has done a lot of lithographs of the working waterfront of NYC, including English Kills and Newtown Creek. There is a great book of art and essays called Hulls and Hulks in the Tides of Time about Noble that would please you if you haven’t seen it.
    A correction (not a criticism but another venue that opens up doors) in a blog you posted. Yoga wasn’t introduced to America by Uncle Aleister, but rather by a contemporary and fellow Rascal Master, Pierre Bernard at his institute in Nyack. This institute, the Clarksdale Country Club was bankrolled by two lady Vanderbildt heiresses.(kind of like the Bronfman sisters bankrolling NXIVM.) The Bernard affair is well covered in the book The Great OOM.
    Keep up the Good Work!
