    OMG I remember that "Please Hide Your Drugs" notice, had forgotten all about it. Hilarious. On my block, among other places, the dealers used to stash their wares in car bumpers - this was when they were separate elements instead of aerodynamically built into the body - and I recall one time when a guy came out of a building, got into his car, started it up, and drove away, blissfully unaware of the excess weight he was carrying. The dealer, suddenly realizing what was happening, raced down the street after him screaming for him to stop, caught up with him at the red on 11th and A and grabbed the bag, after which the driver continued on; I'm not even sure he realized what had just happened. Thanks, Mr. Alessandrini, for the photos and the wistful memories they engender. Such treasures.

    As MTA fares keep going up, that last photo of the bus may very well be in our future.
