(5,6) The first thing I saw today (7:48am) at 389 was smoke - a fire? After I emailed the site super, he sent me the sixth pic the next day, explaining that it was what happens when this 40 year-old welding machine on a flatbed truck gets started up in the morning.

(9,10) Breaking up a concrete block and cementing it into place.

(11) I'm enjoying the river sparkles while I can. As I write this less than a month later, I can only see a sliver of them on the far side and that'll probably be gone within the week.

(12-15) Four shots, including one taken from Teaneck - probably the last shot of my building from there. The whole thing will be obliterated once the fifth floor is built. That will make the building at least as tall as its concrete structures.

(16-20) A lot of spacer work going on between the second and third floor and by the time I shot the stitch (last image), the flat third floor flooring was started on the far right.

It's getting worse. This time, it's only been FIVE days since my last post of FIVES & FLUBS. I hope this doesn't devolve into a daily event. Who has the time every day to deal with an increasingly-Devo newspaper?
