Ah yes, summer. Who needs an exclusive membership to a UES hot yoga studio when you have an all-access pass to New York’s (actual) hottest club – the Wretched Land of No God, Dante’s 0th circle, otherwise known as the boiling pits of an underground MTA subway station on a 85-degree sunny day?
Like a rusty subway car (so old you just KNOW it lacks the AC you crave) rattling its way towards you down the track, the 2019-20 school year comes creeping as we hit July, the mid-way point of the summer. To stave off our despair and commemorate all the fun, sweaty summer days we’ve had so far, here’s a look back on what happened in MoHi this June.
Earlier this summer, Riverside Park also brought in a herd of goats to clear its weeds. Because they are Very Good Boys who have been working “ahead of schedule,” the goats will be sent back upstate for a bit until returning later in the summer to continue their work.
so the new abbreviation is “Wu” right
