This discovery, as made today on 31st Street in Queens, is dedicated to Robert Scarano. You see, gentle readers, he (in part thanks to Curbed*) saw fit to comment on my site recently.
It would appear my post about 214 Franklin Street being converted into a hotel perturbed his granite-topped, sub-zero eminence. I suppose since Mr. Scarano cannot file his own plans anymore he has to occupy his time somehow. And he has elected to while away the time by commenting on my site!
I have been called a great many things in my life, but “right wing” is a new one. This one’s for you, “Scarano”! You are to architecture and north Brooklyn what blankets were to the Siege of Fort Pitt.
*To whose editor I wrote a “thank you” email stating my gratitude. Clearly my message got to the “right” people.

As I stated previously, the Mister and I are taking a staycation. and No staycation would be complete without a visit to Jolson’s Fine Wines & Spirits. He, so as to acquire some grappa and raki. I, so as to visit my favorite brick shit house of a cat: Chupi.
He even got up close and personal for the camera!
Here’s a profile shot.
This yawn shot came out rather hilarious. Eventually Chupi’s aide de camp, Bagheera, graced us with his presence.
The make a pretty awesome team, don’t they?

*Once in a very very blue moon I will encounter something which quite frankly defies an easy— if any— description. This will have to suffice.

It’s cute how “family” sticks together. Please take a moment and point and click your way to Queens Crap for the scoop. Otherwise if you, fellow Greenpointers, are wondering why this is our problem. Well, the following might clarify matters a bit.
You can and should read this in its entirety here. In any case despite being caught operating an illegal waste trade facility handling construction material and six figures worth of tax liens the Department of Buildings has seen fit to issue Mr. Argento’s curiously named contracting company, Broadway Stages, permits. Nice…
My not-so-inner nerd/freak was jumping for joy upon making this discovery. So much so I had to point out my find to the Mister:
What we are seeing here are two ways one can get curly. You can use the product advertised on that billboard or you can simply have sex in Athena’s temple.*
*Special thanks/props go out to a fellow (owner?) at the Greenpoint Toy Center for making me aware of this. NOTE: he did so because I was purchasing a Medusa figurine which now stands watch atop my monitor. Thanks!
