Surreal scenes from New Yorks concrete jungle – oil on canvas paintings by artist Matthew Grabelsky.
An homage to the occasionally moments-too-late New York subway commuter by Jessica Leibowitz. To wit:
There is no quintessential NYC experience quite like running down a subway station platform with your arms flapping all about like a distressed penguin, making eye contact with the conductor, and then hesitantly stretching out your hand to try to slip between the doors before they close.

Just seen this. Fair play to subway helping out the homeless in Dublin City Centre…
Limerick Leader reports:
Controversy continues over the Government’s JobBridge scheme, as a Subway outlet in Limerick city has advertised two positions seeking “sandwich artists”.
The O’Connell Street outlet is seeking two people to master the ‘art’ of sandwich making for 30 hours a week. Those hired will received an extra €50 per week under the scheme, on top of their existing social welfare payment.
The position is for nine months, and the advert highlights that a mentor will be assigned to the successful applicant.
