Before The Great Clean-Up Began, Here Is Another Side Of New York In The 1970s That You May Never Know

New York is the most populous city in the United States, and one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world. A global power city, New York City exerts a significant impact upon commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment, its fast pace defining the term New York minute.

Home to the headquarters of the United Nations, New York is an important center for international diplomacy and has been described as the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world.

Before the great clean-up began, New York had abandoned blocks dotted the landscape, creating vast areas absent of urban cohesion and life itself during the 1970s.

あ、あれは…吾輩の耳?で、こうなった。猫が鏡に映った自分の耳を認識しているかもしれない件に関して

no title

 だがしかし!

 猫が鏡に映った自分の耳を見て、それが自分のものであると認識しているようにしかみえない仕草が撮影された動画があったのである。

 とりあえずそのかわいらしい仕草を見ていこう。

Artists Upcycle Metal Scrap Into Fantastic Sculptures Of Famous Movie Characters

One could say that cold, raw, industrial and warlike metal has nothing in common with art. A group of artists called Kreatworks is the first to bust this myth. Located in Phatumthanee, Thailand, Kreatworks produce incredibly detailed sculptures from scrap metal (useless auto, motorcycle and machine parts) and other recycled materials. They have over 12 years of experience in Steampunk &.
