Coming To Bedford Avenue: Duane Reade

The scaffolding is down at Bedford Avenue and North 3rd Street and oh, what a sight it is!

Of particular interest to yours truly was the promise of a Duane Reade…

which, it should be noted, will be located right across the street from a veritable Williamsburg institution: Kings Pharmacy. I was not the only person who questioned the wisdom of this business placement. A number of passersby took notice as well. Then again, it’s not like Bedford Avenue hasn’t borne witness to this kind of thing before.

Spotted On Meeker Avenue: Tears

When I saw this billboard (which hails from Leonard Street and Meeker Avenue) I smelled a rat. Sure enough, when I got home and looked up the url my suspicions were confirmed. I understand all to well that everyone needs to make a living. But— and this is a big BUT— given the sheer quantity of illegal advertising (foremost among them billboards) I have seen in north Brooklyn over the years I find it a bit difficult to be sympathetic to these people’s plight.

Besides, how many billboards spreading the good news about surgery-free hemorrhoid treatment (replete with a graphic of a prostate gland, no less) does our fair city require? Really?

Although I have featured this ride earlier this month I couldn’t resist passing along a few shots of its latest incarnation.

The freecycled windshield (which the Mister has told me is the back of an old iMac) is an inspired touch!

Alas, when I walked by Lance was nowhere to be found. I wonder if he had any takers?
