(Don't) Fall on me

Continuing the trend of things falling from the sky very close to where I happen to be, a helicopter crashed into New York Harbor directly across from my office in downtown Brooklyn on Tuesday. And then, um, another one crashed into the East River today, though I wasn't particularly near this one (I wasn't particularly far away, either). Times quote of the day from the article about today's crash:

At least three bystanders jumped into the water after seeing the chopper go down, officials said. One, a Fresh Direct employee, helped pull a victim to the shore, then left to go back to work. "He said, 'Hey, I've got to go,'" Mr. Kelly said. "We tried to get him to stay."

There was also a large fire two block's from my mother's place in Sea Gate this morning, which I was nowhere near. As far as I know, I have nothing at all to do with the shit out in California.


  1. And I thought I was cool because a helicopter landed in the park across the street from my office on Monday. Turns out the Army was founded in said park 230 years ago this week, so for some reason they brought in a helicopter to celebrate. Who knew? We all went across the street to check it out and got to sit in the helicopter. It was fun!

  2. I hope living in brooklyn isn't this exciting all the time...
