NYC Subway / Tarantula Diorama

A little (literally) diorama I made of the Franklin Ave. Station  (Brooklyn) for a juvenile OBT tarantula to live in…

A few pics before the spidee moved in…

And one more post move-in and webbing…

2009 

 

In case you dont know about the G train, here’s a few facts..

– The G is the Brooklyn–Queens Crosstown subway, running from 71st Avenue (Queens) to Smith–Ninth Streets (Brooklyn).

– It’s the only train that doesn’t enter Manhattan. Very useful sometimes, but… If you live on the G (like in Greenpoint) just a few miles from the LES or Chinatown, you gotta take THREE trains to get there. 

– The G train is notorious for taking forever. 20 minutes at night (according to the schedule), but that might soon change to 30 minutes due to the budget crisis.

 – When I asked the MTA guy for the schedule, he said “Maaaybe I can find you one back here, but I don’t know why you want one.. it’s like science-fiction”.  He didn’t know that it’s best use is for drawing paper.

LA Gas Prices
Gas GaugeGas prices got out of control (I had to spend $5.15 a gallon once in Hollywood), leading me to drive less and steal more (gas). Which made LA suck even more.
