New York, NY February 27, 2021 Washington Square Park. Young ladies having fun with hair!

New York, NY February 27, 2021 Life on some levels continues in New York City. A wedding!

New York, NY February 26, 2021 With 50F weather, the snow is rapidly melting. The snow that remains is no longer appealing.

New York, NY February 26, 2021 Perhaps it is time to remove these "environmental" trash cans that were designed to compact garbage. As you can see, the Plexiglass covered solar panel has become opaque over time and no longer functions properly.

New York, NY February 26, 2021 Restaurants are now allowed to be open with 35% capacity provided that "social distancing" remains at 6 feet (2 meters) between each person. Whether there is any logic to this, or even if Covid hysteria is even justified, is a matter of debate. This clever sign in Soho states "leave your extra socks at home, indoor dining returns".

New York, NY February 26, 2021 The price of gasoline in NYC has shot up by $.09 per gallon in just a week.

New York, NY February 26, 2021 A sizable number of people still question the safety of the Covid vaccine, that was developed in just a few months, rather than decades, as is normally the case to develop a new vaccine.

New York, NY February 26, 2021 Some people question the effectiveness of face masks that were designed to filter bacteria, rather than the much smaller virus and feel that using the mask is like trying to prevent misquotes from entering a home by using a chain link fence.

New York, NY February 26, 2021 Ms. Meek has designed and developed this clever remote barber shop.

New York, NY February 26, 2021 Haircuts in this mobile barbershop on Mercer Street and Spring Street in Soho costs $45.

New York, NY February 25, 2021 People waiting on long lines to receive the Covid vaccination. The vaccination is controversial because health authorities still insist that even if a person has been vaccinated, that they should still wear masks and social distance. Some foreign countries require both vaccinated and unvaccinated people to quarantine for 14 days. There are also some concerns regarding the safety of the vaccination itself and the long term effects. Vaccine companies are indemnified by the government from all liabilities that may stem from the vaccination. This actually applies to all vaccinations.

New York, NY February 24, 2021 Homelessness is still a major problem in New York City.

New York, NY February 22, 2021 Cute and creative outdoor "Covid Isolation sheds" has emerged in NYC.

New York, NY February 21, 2021 For a simple, temporary outdoor Covid Isolation shed, such as this one, it costs about $6,000 to have built. More complex sheds can cost more.

New York, NY February 21, 2021 This is a creative and interesting Covid Isolation shed, located on Houston Street. One can only speculate as to the cost to build such an elaborate, temporary, shed.

Upstate, NY February 21, 2021 Solar energy a solution? Solar electric panels have significant issues. Some feel that this method is non-polluting and is a solution for the alleged climate change/global warming. Solar panels of this type lasts for about 20 years, but it requires a considerable amount of energy to produce and uses potentially deadly materials. Needless to say, if the panel is covered by snow or leaves or even rain drops, the panels ceases to produce electricity.

The Wall Street Bull as it is today.

Mr. Arturo DiModica's studio on Crosby Street, as it is today. Back in 1989, the front window was different in that the front ground floor was more akin to a garage door opening.

New York, NY February 21, 2021 The creator of the famous Wall Street Charging Bull sculptor, Mr. Arturo DiModica, has died at age 80 in Sicily, Italy.

The history of the Wall Street Bull: Back in 1989, Mr. DiModica had a two story garage building on Crosby Street in Soho. At the time, long before electric cars were in common use, I designed and built electric cars and an early CitiCar. I used to charge my car across the street from Mr. DiModica's studio. Arturo owned a small, mid-engine Ferrari. Since we both had unusual cars, we occasionally would speak to each other. From memory, Mr. DiModica had been commissioned to build TWO raging bulls for a company, but as it turned out, for what ever reason, the bulls were not transferred to the company. Initially, the bull took up Mr. DiModica's studio. After a while, he decided to get rid of it and one night, he hired a truck, lifted to bull onto the truck and then brought it to the triangle on lower Broadway where it now sits. For many months, no one noticed that this was an unauthorized stature and everyone assumed that it was just a part of City art. Then one day, a NYC agency discovered the "illegal" bull and initially wanted to fine Mr. DiModica and have it removed. However by then, the bull had been accepted as a part of city landscape and there was an uproar by Wall street types to PREVENT the removal of the bull bronze statue since they said that it represented the strength of the financial market! Eventually Mr. DiModica cut a deal for the statue and if I recall, he retained ownership and marketing rights and the city was allowed to continue to display this now landmark. What happened to the second bull? Well I am not completely sure, however I believe that Arturo only had the head cast at the foundry. For some time this bull's head adorned the outside of his garage studio on Crosby street. -- Frank X. Didik, February 21, 2021 ( Rest in peace Mr. DiModica.

New York, NY February 21, 2021 New York State still requires people to wear masks in stores. There is much scientific information that states that a virus is vastly smaller than the filtering capability of a mask, but Dr. Fauci stated last year, wearing the mask is a reminder that a virus is still with us.

New York, NY February 21, 2021 Some of the outdoor Covid Isolation booths have become rather elaborate.

New York, NY February 19, 2021 In less than a month, the price of gasoline in New York City has jumped $.16 per gallon.

New York, NY February 19, 2021 People continue to eat and drink outside with minimal heat, in the cold weather. Food becomes cold within a few minutes, so must be eaten fast.

New York, NY February 16, 2021 P Some restaurants have gone to extremes in order to make their Covid outdoor dining as comfortable as possible.

Stanford University, California February 16, 2021 A new study conducted by Stanford University finds that for average 50 to 64 year olds, the chances of dying from Covid-19 are 1 in 19.1 million. The study further determined that the chance of getting infected by Covid-19 is 1 in 3,836. It is estimated that of those few who do get infected, 99.98 percent of Americans survive without any ill effects. With this scientific information, one has to ask if the lockdowns, business closures, school closures were ever necessary. Further, with such odds, why vaccinate at all?

New York, NY February 16, 2021 People enjoying in Washington Square Park, an unusually warm, 55F winter day. Just two days ago, the temperature was 22F and is expected to again go down into the 20's, over the next few days.

New York, NY February 16, 2021 The cold weather and ice takes its toll on the roads in a phenomenon known as "frost heaving" where water freezes, expands and then breaks up the street and sidewalks creating potholes.

Tannersville, NY February 15, 2021 Steve Heller's Fabulous Furniture and space artifacts store outside display, probably from the 1950's.


Hunter Mountain, NY February 15, 2021 Many people from NYC enjoy this relatively close, 2 hours away, ski area.

February 15, 2021 A combination of warm and then freezing temperatures create beautiful, but potentially dangerous, icecles.


New York, NY February 13, 2021 A historic Checker Taxi cab. The fact is that cars in the 1930's to the late 1950's had much more room than the most modern cars. This checker, though designed in the 1950's, was manufactured in the 1970's. Fuel efficiency is mostly a product of the total weight of the vehicle. The heavier the car, normally the smoother the ride and potentially safer the vehicle. If fuel efficiency was not an issue, a very heavy car, with modern safety designs, such as airbags, would be the best vehicle! (Go to for more details).

New York, NY February 13, 2021 Fifth Avenue in preparation for Presidents Day.

New York, NY February 13, 2021 Again poor Atlas is suffering the indignity of his face mask that some Covid deniers refer to as a face diaper or an obedience shield, claiming that a virus is vastly smaller than the face mask can possibly shield

New York, NY February 13, 2021 Fifth Avenue on a cold winter day.


New York, NY February 13, 2021 An anti-fur and leather protest. Curiously, it looks as though some of the protestors are wearing leather shoes, though it is possible that they are wearing fake leather shoes.

New York, NY February 13, 2021 World War One memorial on Fifth Avenue and Central Park.

New York, NY February 13, 2021 Coming off of the Williamsburg Bridge, entering into Manhattan. For many years, graffiti, the bane of society, has been rather rare. This Graffiti is rather old. Perhaps in a few years, such eyesores will be protected as early "art".

New York, NY February 11, 2021 A very creative outdoor structure to comply with the Covid restrictions. Many questions remain regarding the both the virus and the response to the virus, with some people claiming that it is nothing more than the yearly flu rebranded as a deadly virus, while others, including most government outlets saying that it is a deadly pandemic.

New York, NY February 8, 2021 An interesting billboard on the side of a building on the Bowery and Canal Street, at the entrance to the Manhattan Bridge.


February 7, 2021 New York, NY Another snow storm in New York City, expected to deposit between 3 and 6 inches of snow.

February 7, 2021 New York, NY Bicycles are not well used in the cold and certainly not used very much in snowy and freezing weather.

February 6, 2021 New York, NY The temperature reached 48F this afternoon and is a "warm" 42 this evening letting the social starved population to meet up outside at this Soho restaurant/bar.


February 5, 2021 New York, NY A park ranger in Great Kills, Staten Island, feeding a buck in the snow.


February 5, 2021 New York, NY Great Kills harbor in Staten Island which in the summer months is filled with pleasure boats. Unfortunately, these two boats "broke mooring" and floated and crashed onto the rocks.


February 5, 2021 New York, NY This sailboat in Great Kills Harbor would have been so much fun in the summer. Unfortunately, is somehow crashed onto the rocks and sunk.


February 4, 2021 New York, NY This graffiti covered wall is just off Canal Street in Manhattan. Today rarely one sees new graffiti I suspect that in the future, such graffiti, that was considered an eye sore, may well be protected as historic art.

February 2, 2021 New York, NY Washington Square park

February 2, 2021 New York, NY This is one of the disadvantages of the bike rental and bike lane system. Bicycles are used primarily in warmer weather and primarily by people under the age of 40. Quick observation also seems to show that far more men then women use bicycles.


February 2, 2021 New York, NY Most streets were plowed very quickly in NYC, however busy Forth Avenue was surprisingly not plowed. Moments after this photo was taken, the car being driven got stuck on the snow/iced road.


February 2, 2021 New York, NY Saint Marks Place and Lafayette. The famous cube sits surrounded by snow.


February 2, 2021 New York, NY This interesting blast from the past. A Russian/Ukrainian motorcycle with an open side car makes its way down a frozen street.

February 2, 2021 New York, NY People enjoying Washington Square Park.


February 2, 2021 New York, NY It must be cold (and slippery) riding a bicycle on this 30F day!


February 2, 2021 New York, NY Even poor Mickey Mouse had trouble on this cold day on Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint Brooklyn.


February 2, 2021 New York, NY Most born Manhattanites know that snow plows plow the snow to the right and so it is important to park on the left side of the road, so that your car is not buried!


February 2, 2021 New York, NY Even with the declared state of emergency, it is important that essential goods, such as food be delivered. Here are trucks entering onto the Manhattan Bride on the Brooklyn side.

February 2, 2021 New York, NY Almost empty Manhattan Bridge from Brooklyn, going into Manhattan.



February 2, 2021 New York, NY Notice that all snow plows push the snow to the right, not the left, so it is important to park your car, if possible, on the left side of the road, so that you will not be buried!


February 2, 2021 New York, NY In compliance with President Biden's and also NYC declarations that bathrooms, that were formerly segregated to Men and Women are now open to all.


February 2, 2021 New York, NY An estimated 16 inches of snow has fallen on New York City since Sunday afternoon. The snow, which is now light, is expected to end this evening around 6PM.

February 1, 2021 New York, NY New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has urged people to stay home and only drive in an emergency.

Frank X. Didik with NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio and first lady Chirlane McCray, at Gracy Mansion.


Inflation. Apparently, inflation is back, though not as severe as in 1980-1982. Items such as housing purchases, used automobiles, fuel and food has increased by a fairly high amount, with some estimating this to be about 15% over the past four months.

If the vaccination works, why must people still wear masks and why the need for a "Vaccination Passport"? Obviously, if someone decides not to take the vaccine, THEY are the one's who might be at risk. Why would people NOT want to take this potentially life saving vaccination? There are a number of reasons including that some of the vaccinations used aborted baby's/fetuses, some people question how a vaccination can be developed in two months, while the average time it takes to develop a vaccine is 13 years and some people feel that there is not any need to take it considering that the recovery rate is just under 100%. Finally, some people feel that the risks of permanent injury or death from the vaccine, outweighs the risks from the potential of getting the vaccine. The concept of "my body, my choice also seems to be a factor to decline taking the vaccine. Presently about 50% of the United States has taken or plans to take the vaccine.

Massive inflation coming? Frank X. Didik, January 2, 2020. At the start of 2020, it is estimated that the United States national debt was 21 Trillion dollars. As of January 2, 2021, as a result of the vast "printing" of additional money for Covid Relief and other expenses, this debt is estimated at just under 30 trillion dollars. Surely, one would think that a 30% increase in money supply would lead to significant inflation, but this has not happened. I believe that this is primarily because of vast production surpluses, on every level including manufacturing, services and farming. Robotics, efficient computerized allocation of resources and transportation has produced enough for everyone, without pressure on the market.

DO NOT DEFUND THE POLICE With skyrocketing crime, it is clear that NYC must have an effective and well funded NYPD otherwise we will be like the wild west.

Similarities between the current lock-downs and Prohibition Frank X. Didik, January 2, 2020. Many people feel that the shock of the lockdowns is unique in American history. This is not the case. There have been many shocking, similar instances of business closures or being greatly curtailed in American history. Some examples include in 1919, with the introduction of Prohibition, when all of the bars and liquor stores were suddenly closed and it was impossible to legally purchase alcohol. Clearly it was shocking when the leisurely pint after work and the closures of bars, must have been shocking. Prohibition ended in 1933. During World War 2, there were also many restrictions on rationing of many previously common items such as meat, sugar, gasoline and other items. Similar restrictions and shortages also occurred During the Civil war of 1861-1865 and the Revolutionary War of 1775-1783.

Remote working, office space, the diminished need for employees Frank X. Didik, January 1, 2020 It is fascinating to note that as a result of the government imposed Covid-19 restrictions, that for a period of time, an estimated 30% of the population was out of work, and yet the country did not experience any long term shortages, in any area. One might say that this is a wake-up call for companies to show them that they have too many redundant employees. read more

Does constant mask wearing reduce cognitive ability? Studies have shown that people inhale between 7% and 12% of their exhaled breath, with an accumulation of carbon dioxide. Does this cause minor cognitive loss for the wearer over time? Further, over time, the masks quickly become both moist as well as becomes a breading ground for bacteria. Also, does the additional stress on the lungs to breath through a filter effects the lungs? More studies must be performed to determine if mask wearing causes biological issues as well as phychological issues over time.

Lockdowns benefit large companies at the expense of small stores and businesses Frank X. Didik December 16, 2020
 It has become obvious that the lockdowns, imposed by most of the states to control the spread of Covid-19, has clearly benefited large companies, particularly on-line mega-companies, at the expense of small, local businesses, that were forced to either close their doors or greatly curtail their operations. It was estimated that these small companies and stores represented about 60% of the economy. As a result of the government imposed lockdowns, much of this bushiness activity and wealth has been transferred, perhaps permanently, to the on-line stores. This is rapidly creating a vastly different business environment and potentially will reduce the ability of an individual to start their own business in the future.

Defund? Some anti-police groups have called for the defunding of the police around the country. Question: late at night, if you are traveling in an empty subway car and two police officers come on, do you feel threatened or are you relieved and hope that they stay on for the duration of your trip? The answer is obvious. The police are essential to maintaining order in any society.

Thoughts on science, business and society today
By Frank X. Didik - editor.

What if and what can or might be.

The 1956 Firebird was to be self driving.
Self Driving Cars? If you have an accident with a self driving car, who is at fault? The car manufacturer, the owner of the car or the occupant "driver" of the car? I have enjoyed owning and driving some of the most interesting cars made and have always enjoyed the freedom of driving without impediments or restrictions. Nevertheless, if self driving cars can help reduce accidents and enhance society, I am for them. Besides the technical aspects, there are many other issues that must be worked out. My concerns regarding self driving cars including liability, safety, morality and effectiveness. more ...

Question: If people who are protesting are paid to protest, is it really a protest?

Question: If a humanitarian organization is paid for their services, are they really a humanitarian organization?

Question: If a charity receives most or all of its money from the government, is it really a charity considering that the tax payer is paying for their services?

Reason, Logic and intellect is not reliable. The late Christopher Hitchens often stated that we should rely on our logic, reason and intellect to determine the truth. Many people who pride themselves as educated, intelligent and progressive believe the same. As reasonable as this seems, Galileo proved over 400 years ago that our logic, reason and intellect is unreliable and that only direct experimental data, should be relied upon. Galileo had dropped two balls of the same material, but different masses, from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to demonstrate that they would hit the ground at the same time, rather than the heavier ball hitting the ground first, as almost everyone, including Aristotle, 2000 years ago, had assumed. Our logic, reason and intellect is not reliable and should only be viewed as speculation. Only direct experimentation and obtaining the same results, over and over again should be relied upon.


What about? ..

Old Computer Formats and the longevity of our digitally stored knowledge. Are we entering into a "pre-history" era? How can we preserve our computer written records, books, photographs, video and knowledge? We must have an international agreement and an organization, perhaps under auspices of the United Nations, dedicated to preserving our global digital records so that future generations can access the information and knowledge that we store on computer readable formats.

If you wanted to, would you be able to read a:

    3 1/2" or 5 1/4" or 8" floppy?

    9 track tape?
    IBM punch card?
    Paper punch tape?

If you can not read these one or two generation old formats today, how will society be able to read these documents in 200 years from now? In a few years, our latest computer formats and storage devices, such as USB drives, will also be obsolete. I have deep concerns about the longevity of our knowledge and of computer records, more ...

Questioning the results of modern science. For the last 100 years, we have been experiencing the collapse of real science. Theories, speculation and fantasy is the norm today. By definition, the scientific method is the ability to test and re-test and always get the same results, over and over. If an idea or a theory can not be tested, the idea must be viewed as speculation and not considered true, till that idea is proven without a doubt. Scientific theory has moved to areas that are beyond our present capability of testing and gradually a number of unproven theories have become accepted as fact without any real proof. Further, new theories have been developed based on old theories. Thus we have a situation where science today is largely based on theory upon theory. If something can not be proven, it falls into the realm of philosophy rather than science. This has led more ...
