Culture on the Cheap
Bed-Stuy Photo du Jour: Lafayette Street
Last week I shared with you, dear readers, what is in my opinion one of the ugliest and most oppressive “homes” I have ever seen. How the neighbors of this eyesore cope with having to look at this depressing monolith every day is beyond me. But I have a creeping suspicion they might be getting a little help from upstairs.
Or would that be downstairs and down the block? In any case it just goes to show how amazingly convenient a place New York City is. Anything a person could possibly desire can be delivered right to his (or her) doorstep: furniture, groceries and— as the numerous shopping carts in the above photograph attest— souls.
