A reminder, if you're going to go down to Ladder 8, please respect that is a working station and pay your respects to Lt. Halloran as well – his plaque is on the other side of the main door.

Here's how the memorial looked when we got there at 5:30 today. I brought some flowers which I put on both Harold's side, and the other side of the garage door for the FDNY 9/11 plaque. @[40703911:2048:Ryan Espin] brought a slinky. Contrary to what's be going around online, the GB2 sign was not out front of the firehouse.

New York Mid-Manhattan Library is gutting the research collection housed below the reading room featured in Ghostbusters. No word on how these plans to convert the library into a lending library will impact the main reading room.
"You want to photograph me eating chicken?"
"Well, if I let you, I need you to help me deliver a message."
"I work at this library. And before that, I was coming here for twenty years. It's my favorite place in the world. As many people know, the main reading room of this library is supported by seven floors of books, which contain one of the greatest research collections in the world. Recently, the library administration has decided to rip out this collection, send the books to New Jersey, and use the space for a lending library. As part of the consolidation, they are going to close down the Mid-Manhattan Library Branch as well as the Science, Industry, and Business Library. When everything is finished, one of the greatest research libraries in the world will become a glorified internet cafe. Now read that back to me."

Falla: Cazafantasmas (Ghostbusters)
Falla: Cazafantasmas (Ghostbusters) Islas Canarias (Canary Islands)-Dama de Elche 2013 Artist: Sergio Musoles Ros 1st Prize winner in 3rd Section Copied from Wikipedia article "Falles": "The Falles (Valencian: [ˈfaʎes] ( listen), sing. Falla), or Fallas (Spanish: [ˈfaʎas]), is a traditional celebration held in commemoration of Saint Joseph in the city of Valencia, in Spain. The term Falles refers to both the celebration and the monuments created during the celebration. A number of towns in the Valencian Community have similar celebrations inspired by the original one in Valencia. Each neighbourhood of the city has an organized group of people, the Casal faller, that works all year long holding fundraising parties and dinners, usually featuring the famous dish, paella, a specialty of the region. Each casal faller produces a construction known as a falla which is eventually burnt. A casal faller is also known as a comissió fallera."

I Just Watched Ghostbusters for the First Time
I have a terrible secret. And to the countless people I have lied to over the years, I am deeply, truly sorry, but it's time to come clean: I've never seen Ghostbusters. At least, I hadn't until yesterday afternoon.
Well, there's something you don't see every day.
