**** “America” is over. Or at least it will be on Sept. 15, when the exhibition of that name closes at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum after a one-year run. It has been one of the smallest exhibitions in the museum’s history, comprising a single work of art: a fully functional 18-karat gold toilet, designed by the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan and installed in a single-occupancy museum restroom. But it has been popular with visitors, some of whom waited in line for an hour to test its metal. “More than 100,000 people have waited patiently in line for the opportunity to commune with art and with nature,” wrote Nancy Spector, the Guggenheim’s artistic director and chief curator, on the museum’s website. In New York on the streets, we call it the “Gold Shitter.”
**** Six-high ranking officials at the NYPD had to cancel a trip to Afghanistan last week after two cops were booted from their military flight over concerns they were too drunk to fly. The elite cops were on their way to the war-torn country for a weeklong trip to teach NYPD counterterrorism and crimefighting tactics to soldiers who train Afghan officers, a police source said. The group included Chief of Counterterrorism James Waters; Lt. Chris Zimmerman, commander of the hostage negotiation team; Deputy Chief Scott Shanley, head of the department’s Critical Response Command, and Counterterrorism Capt. Daniel Magee. They partied and disrespected every US soldier who was killed or wounded in that cesspool of drug dealing corruption called Afghanistan.
**** Nestle’s marketing and sales of Poland Spring water has been “a colossal fraud perpetrated against American consumers,” 11 people claim in a federal class action. Filing their suit Tuesday in Connecticut, where Nestle is based, the lead plaintiffs are from the Nutmeg State as well as New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. They say they would not have paid a premium for the water had they known it did not actually come from eight purported natural springs in Maine. They got the water straight from the tap.
**** An advertising agency that has worked with the Oscars, McDonald’s and the Los Angeles Dodgers has been selected by the NYPD to diversify its ranks, which is about half white. The NYPD is looking for city approval to hire Walton Isaacson, a small ad agency formed in 2006 with backing from Earvin “Magic” Johnson, for a $54 million, five-year contract to help with its recruitment outreach. Someone should call the cops this caper is so crooked.
**** A giant inflatable of President Trump, in the style of labor unions’ blow up rodents, is greeting Midtown residents and tourists at Fifth Ave. and 59th St. The grotesque model of Trump was claimed by gallery Bravin Lee, who said that the inflatable rat is “an enduring sign of resistance and ridicule.” Doesn’t help for children to see that kind of thing.
**** New Yorkers have some new neighbors. More than 60,000 bees moved into two hives situated in the northwest corner of Bryant Park and will continue to make the park their home as they produce urban, locally-sourced honey. Beekeper Andrew Coté – who runs hives in four of five New York City boroughs – heads up the hives in a partnership with Bryant Park. No one will try to steal these bees or maybe someone will?

****Please note that I encourage folks planning on coming to NYC to write to me for some advice. Beware the online trip advising sites that are written mainly by public relations people to promote their clients’ services. Many of the restaurants that they tout have numerous health violations and you can always ask me about that. I do not “rate” things, but I sure can tell you if you choices (including hotels and attractions) are wise ones.
