Filed under: BAD ASS, New York City, Stuff That Makes Miss Heather Happy 

Although the bloggage has been sparse of late I can assure you, gentle readers, much has come to pass. One such example is delivering a snow globe to my first client! I will not go into the terms of the sale to Mr. Kuby— that is our business— other than to note one of my stipulations was I get to take and publish photos of him enjoying his purchase (which will grace his desk). Hence this post.

I think he likes it!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Pharmacy Wars?

Beth (who sent the above photograph to my attention) writes:

Hi Heather! This email is part 1 of 2.

Maybe you’ve already spotted this but I wanted to share. CVS fires a shot across Chopin’s prow….

…Sunshine Laundromat responds the way they do best – with a smart ass sign.

Well played, Sunshine Laundromat!

UPDATE, 8:09 pm:

It would appear Sunshine Laundromat is hosting a Cinco De Mayo event. Admission is free and BYOD (Bring Your Own Dog).

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: 404 McGuinness

After yesterday’s deluge I decided to get out, enjoy some sunshine and see what, if anything, new in the way of art was “up” at our very own McGuinness Power Brake Service. There were a few new additions, but this one (which is located on Clay Street) especially tickled my fancy. Check it out!

Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: DII

The closure of “Big D” was not only lamented by many a Greenpointer but also the source of considerable speculation. Naturally the latter generally revolved around development, the opening of a chain store or, of course, another bar. As you can clearly see, gentle readers, none of these things came to pass. The word on the street/Greenpoint grapevine is (was) the partnership of Big D (rumored to be two brothers) dissolved. Hence the closure of the store, the opening of a nearly identical establishment (under one of the former partners) with new (if not terribly original) name: DII. DII opened as of 4:00 pm today and as you can clearly see, this was met with considerable interest— if not downright excitement. It is a red letter day in Garden Spot for all who relied upon the good ol’ Big D for affordable housewares, apparel, toys and whatnot!
