Three true tales of urban grit

  1.  The Atlantic Avenue station has been completely redone; it is now beautiful and completely unrecognizable.  It is now possible to transfer from the R to the F at Jay St., and from the F to the 6 at Broadway-Lafayette.
  2. When one boards the subway at Church Avenue on the BQ, one does so alongside white 20-somethings in stylish jeans.
  3. Strikers at a grocery store in Brooklyn chalk up the sidewalk out front; a manager angrily throws bleach to wash it away, including on a protestor.  Police are called.  The officer who arrives announces that he doesn’t want to arrest anyone and forces the manager to give the protestor $80 for the cost of the jeans.  No police report is filed.
