hpnyc.org on the F train

Yesterday while was in the F train in New York, a young blond man came through the crowded car soliciting donations. I would not have given him much notice, except that as he was carrying a small black cat, and supposedly collecting for an organization called "Homeless Pets NYC" with a website hpnyc.org. The URL will take you to a site that describes the person I saw and his black cat, and suggests that like most subway solicitations it's a scam. Very sad.

Did you get to Carnegie Hall by the F Train??

Or was it Practice, practice, practice? [h/t to the free radical]

;-))

PS: My favorite restaurant, Molyvos, just happens to be near the same stop. The family also owns City Limits Diner, at 200 Central Avenue in White Plains -- at least that's what a driving cat [who was never cruelly exploited on the subway, btw] once told me. They are also building a new eatery in Armonk, says my Mom. Small world, eh, when we cross our eyes and connect the dots.

If you haven't returned home yet, have a safe journey, and as usual, scritches for your favorite kitty.

I did actually use the 57th Street station on this trip, after visiting the MoMA. That will be part of an upcoming post :)

That's a bad person, using a poor kitty and scamming people for money. I do hope he treats the kitty he has with him well.

Look forward to seeing more of the NY trip.

Nobody can be anticipated without spending more time with him. Having a faultless resume has dependably been major in discovering an astounding occupation. Today's tight occupation business region makes this by and large more major, professional resume writing service phenomenally upgrades the potential results of searching for some sort of job to bolster you.
