alexclermont Goal #22: Buy a #Harlem or #Brooklyn #brownstone in the next five years. Don't know how I'll get there, but that's the Goal.
Saw these while wandering around Harlem and had to take a pic. If I caught it in the daytime I'm sure I'd have a million "likes." #GetRichQuick but #DontFall #NYC #NewYorkStories

alexclermont My view at the peak of the #RFKBridge while biking to a #Astoria from the #Bronx.

Never made that trip before, but I'm glad I did. #Bicycling #NiceView #NYC #NewYorkStories #DontFall!!

As seen in #NYC.

Protect your #heart.
Protect your #art.
Then a re-tagger says:
Protect your neck. #WUTANG!

Each message seems equally important. #StreetArt #TheMessage

alexclermont Spent my Saturday night being #creative and drinking Di Saronno at the same time. Worked out pretty well, you should try it.

Location: #Harlem (now called #HamiltonHeights). #WritersWrite #WritersPlan #Bars #Hemingway

Some #StreetArt and good advice from the walls of #London.

If you have a story to tell, then tell it. No one else will do it for you. #Storyteller #WritersWrite #Graffiti #Words #TellTheWorld #IfYourBoredThanYourBoring.

alexclermont The view from my bike as I pedal down the west side of #Manhattan. Don't want to pay #RiversideDrive rent, but I can bike through nonetheless. Actually kind of like it better that way.

Biking through the city is fantastic, and don't let anybody tell you any different. Speeding cars and bad drivers be damned. #Bicycle #NYC #BeHealthy #Exercise #NewYorkStories

alexclermont Was sitting in an unnamed mega-bookstore earlier this week (#BarnesAndNoble) and noticed portraits of classic #Authors in their café area. Figured it be nice to post a picture of my favorite author #GeorgeOrwell.

Describing what human beings have the potential to do to each other can be scarier than any sci-fi or horror #book, and he hit it first. #1984 #AnimalFarm #HomageToCatalonia #WritersRead #ClassicLiterature #Orwell #Dystopia #NewYorkStories

alexclermont I haven’t done a writing prompt in a while so I wanted to share a recent one I did and provide links to some really awesome ones so that you guys could do one as well. The link is in my profile.

Why #WritingPrompts? Cause they’re fun and you get to flex your #Creative muscles, which is always a good thing :) #WritersWrite #Writer #IndieAuthor #Blogging #WritingExercise #ShortStory #ShortRead #NewYorkStories

alexclermont As seen at @BeerAndBend. After #Yoga a few of us at got to drinking and I noticed this cleaver phrase on the back of Mardeah's shirt. If you can't read it (bad shot) it reads: Drink till he's cute.

That can be helpful advice depending on what you're trying accomplish that night... #BeerAndBend #DateNight #GunHillBrewery #NiceShirt #DrinkingBeer #DoingYoga #PrettyBack

alexclermont Was at the @BrooklynBowl in #Williamsburg last night to check out a Blackalicious performance and a fantastic DJ set by Questlove. Walking home I spotted, among other things, this great looking piece of street art of #AndyWarhol and #JeanMichelBasquiat

It was hashtaged with #FightForStreetArt. So, yeah. Do that. #BrooklynBowl #Art #Roaming #KeepYourEyesOpen

alexclermont I was passing by St. Mark's Bookstore and felt like I had to take this shot. You got me thinking about the fact that I've been reading way too much on my iPad and haven't gotten enough physical, paper and glue, #books. Hoping to change that in the next few months.

Books are pretty and holding one in your hand is an experience that you can't get from an e-reader. #ReadBooks #LoveBook #BookStore #StMarksBookstore #WritersRead #IWriteToo #BookPorn #MyFavoriteBookIs1984

alexclermont This tunnel is located somewhere in Prospect Park. Where? I don't know. It's a big park!

I want to say near the entrance at Grand Army Plaza, but don't quote me on that. #Brooklyn #GrandArmyPlaza #ProspectPark #Artsy #Tunnel #ThereIsIightAtTheEndOfTheTunnel #NewYorkStories

alexclermont And then there's this coming off the F train on 2nd ave. It's been there for a while and I never took the time to look at it, but this #StreetArt is pretty eye-catching.
If anybody knows the origin of it, or the reason someone decided to draw a #Polynesian girl on the wall, please let me know. I'm sure there's a #NewYorkStory behind it. #Graffiti #Art #FTrain #LES #NYC #NewYorkStories

alexclermont Caught this view while biking on the Riverside bike path, on the west side of #Manhattan.

Biked a decent distance, then later I went to a house warming party and negated the workout with some really good locally brewed beers. #Sunshine #Sun #CityShot #NYC #Cycling #Skyline #NewYorkStories

alexclermont My first, and probably last, attempt at this kind of pic. Not normally one for New York Times bestsellers, and Lev Grossman is a bad journalist, but I love his The Magicians #trilogy!

I just got the third part a few days ago hoping it will be as good as the first 2. #WritersRead #WritersWrite #BookLover #NewYorkTimes #LevGrossman #TheMagicians #ReadANovel #BookPorn #BookStore

  •   alexclermont Morning @yjabouin! Will let you know. It is part of a trilogy though, and I really recommend the first 2. Take a look next time you're in a book store. 3w

alexclermont Was heading to the @thenuyoricanpoetscafe yesterday for their open mic Mondays and passed by one of my favorite bookstores, St. Mark's bookshop.

Figured I'd share the pic with those who love books but don't live in #NYC. I'm not saying your bookstore isn't nice but… #NewYorkStories #BookPorn #BookNerd #stmarksbookshop #meandering
