Tudor Cottage in Tompkinsville (by thelexiphane) This interesting Tudor-style cottage sits between St. Paul’s Avenue and Victory Blvd on Staten Island. This would be a straight half-timbered Tudor revival-style, if not for the curvilinear gables with rounded overhanging eaves, which are a modern adaptation of a thatched roof in an old English cottage. The irregular blocking around the main doorway also adds to the rustic ambiance. Note that the builder did not skimp when matching the design to the freestanding garage at the rear of the house, although the garage door looks out of sync. There are other period-style homes along this stretch where this house sits, although the styles seem to lean more Scandinavian than anything else.

Life Imitates Seinfeld
The ballpark snoozer above is suing ESPN, two of the sports network’s broadcast announcers, the NY Yankees, and Major League Baseball for $10 million after he was shown sleeping through an April 13 game in the Bronx. 26 year old Andrew Rector complains in his suit that he was subjected to an “unending verbal crusade”. According to a report by the Courthouse News Service, Rector included MLB in his suit after footage of his Yanks-Sox Siesta was included in a highlight reel of the game.
George Costanza was similarly humiliated when he was broadcast sloppily enjoying a delicious sundae at the U.S. Open. Congratulations Andrew Rector; you are this summer’s George Costanza.
