I have lived in Harlem for 10 years and although we may have soul food, amazing architecture and some great gospel music, we have something no other neighborhood in Manhattan has- Tumble Weave.
It can be found rolling down sidewalks, clogging up drains and skeeting down the subway stairs.
No matter how bad your day is, when a tumble weave twirls by with some glitter, old leaves or an eyelash thrown in, it's simply un-be-weavably amusing.

Weave Mail from Heidi
It takes all sorts to scout out a good tumble and Heidi Rosenau has been on the hunt for quite some time. The best swing dancer in New York and a woman who only wears vintage clothing (mostly from the 30's!), Heidi sent this to me last night.
Cator, I found this tumbleweave in Chelsea yesterday...on 9th and about 18th....and after we took this shot, the wind picked up and it tumbled away....very exciting!
I can't tell if the white ball is attached. If so it would be the perfect birdie for badminton. Thanks Darlin'!
