Culture on the Cheap
‘Tis The Season: Don’t Let The Bedbugs Bite!
The above photograph was taken yesterday, December 5, 2007 at 8:00 p.m. in front of the 74 India Street entrance of the Astral Apartments. For the sake of comparison (and because quite frankly I have a VERY dark sense of humor) follows is the first installment of an article about this building from the December 5, 1886 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. The second half will follow later today. Enjoy!
Am I the only one who finds it interesting that 121 years after this article was published that quality affordable housing is, once again, an issue?
