Everyone in this Big Apple has dreams. NYU and plastic surgeons just have different methods of getting you there.

Lisa Alpert took this photo of two ads on the 2 train on Thursday night. Rarely does anything in this world juxtapose quite so well.

Lisa, who has a great eye for the fun and absurd, also snapped a photo of monks hanging out at a frozen yogurt shop last year.

      I saw this on the train yesterday. I thought that someone in the MTA advertising setup area must have done this on purpose.

      Yes, intentional.

      Both NYU and the doctor think bigger is better. I don’t and sorry to see the West Side Rag giving both parties ore exposure. (No pun intended.). I find the plastic surgeon’s ad distasteful and NYU’s big building boom even more revolting.
