photos by mark garfinkel of boston firefighter sean coyle rescuing a husky named sylvie who fell through the ice some forty yards from the shore of boston harbor. sylvie, who had been treading water for thirty minutes, “was pretty shaken up when i got her, and her barks had turned into whimpers” said coyle, who briefly fell in the freezing water himself. “if the ice breaks and this goes south, i’m in this. i’m not going to let her drown,” he said of his thoughts at the time.

‘Beach Library’ Pops Up In Southern France
Architect Matali Crasset’s latest design is the “Bibliothèque de Plage,” or “Beach Library,” which crawls Istres, France’s coastline. The portable structure houses 350 titles, including some of Crasset’s favorite novels like Eat Me by Agnes Desarthes and Things by George Perec. It’s not a food vendor, but this pop-up library may just be the next best treat.
