At work, the air conditioning is broken in half the building, and may be out for weeks. Opening my office window is a Herculean task (the frame is warped from water damage). The fan puts up a brave effort, but fails to cool. Shuffling back to the train the other day I was mildly consoled by the sight of a Circus-Man ice cream truck on Hillside. I'd never seen one of these before, and it made a nice change from Mr. Softee. According to Long Island Business News though, Circus-Man, founded by Blaise & Vincent Graziano in 1958, closed last year ( "Circus-Man Folds its Tent"), so maybe the truck now carries altogether different goods.
