    I'm not impressed with the shooting unless you did it while riding. I'm planning a trip out east to do some clay shooting soon. Let's not hijack this thread with that though. I will post up the info on FB.

    Be careful getting this tag. There's gravel and sand to both sides of it.

    New Tag

    This may look like a Parisian Toilet :huh but I am assured the "The Glass Sea" is a valid piece of art, I will leave it for you to decide.

    It has already upset some opponents who have launched a petition demanding that Mayor Michael Bloomberg have it removed.

    Nice tag, and a nice clear clue on where to find it, the Kentile Floors sign has its own Facebook page and a bit of a following in the Municipal Art Society of New York. "The Kentile Sign along the Gowanus Canal was nominated to the Census of Places that Matter for serving as a symbol of Gowanus’ industrial heritage and for being a remnant of this former Brooklyn business".

    I wanted to get that one, I used to bicycle through there on my commute and after Sandy I rode through about a foot of standing water just after going over that bridge

    Good get man! Yeah the canal flooded pretty bad, about a block in each direction. I live a few blocks away but luckily the water didn't get my basement. I figured it didn't need a written clue. Don't forget Smith and 9th Train station there. It's the highest elevated train platform IN THE WORLD!

    EDIT: I didnt see the new tag clearly on tapatalk. I ride past that piece of crap almost every day and had no idea what it was. Ever since I almost got killed on the FDR, I take Centre to Lafayette to go uptown from the Brooklyn Bridge now. Still a bit sheepish about trying the FDR again though, maybe on the new 919, not on a hardtail bike again though.

    Well, Wiseblood has about three hours to post the new tag. If he doesn't, you can go back to the cinderblock art and snatch the tag away from him! Or be patient. Wiseblood usually comes up with some good tags. He's probably heading to Staten Island as we speak! :D

    Sorry for the delay of game, gents. I thought I would have had time today, but did not. I'll post one up tomorrow. Otoh, I won't complain if someone dares to nab the tag before then.

    It was only drizzle man nothing major. I met up with Sckill today and he rode from queens to Brooklyn. I do understand though no pressure.
