riverside drive

FDNY firefighters, paramedics and EMTs gathered at the Firefighter’s Monument for the annual Memorial Day ceremony, paying tribute to the 10 active members who have died in the last year.

Saw a true brony on my drive home yesterday.

There’s an equestrian neighborhood (NEIGHborhood???) adjacent to the studio. Seeing people on horses around there isn’t strange, but they usually obey basic traffic laws… and don’t look like Abercrombie and Fitch models. Seriously, he was maybe 10 feet (hooves?) from a crosswalk, cross-traffic had the green-light, do you even lift bro?

Now that i think about it, his horse couldn’t have been that bright either.

Adding Abercrombie Zombie to the list of regulars on Riverside Drive, right there with Middle Aged Barbie Walking a Pony and Pantsless Jogger.

Jimmy Marble for the “Them & Theirs” series. Another great reason to love LA, I was certain we were going to get fined for hanging this massive tarp off the overpass but several cops pulled up during the shoot, didn’t even ask for a permit, just said, “Who put that up there?” When I told them it was me, they just asked my last name and drove off without a care.

The Charles M. Schwab 75-room mansion on Riverside Drive, Manhattan

Built, 1901 - Razed, 1948

Schwab, who liked to live life in the fast lane, lost his entire fortune during the Great Depression.  Unsuccessful attempts to sell his mansion for $4 million forced him to abandon it in 1939.  He relocated to a small apartment and died penniless the next year.
