Culture on the Cheap
‘Tis The Season: 648 Humboldt Street

Since the afternoon proved to be sunny— if a bit brisk— I decided to go out for a walk. And in so doing I spied a number of homeowners busy hanging garlands, Christmas lights and other holiday mirth on their homes. When I finally reached my destination, 648 Humboldt Street (which some of you might recall are no slouches in the Halloween decoration department), I was pleased to find their holiday cheer in full swing.
Carousels, ferris wheels, candy canes, lollipops, ginger bread people and a nativity with Mr. and Mrs Claus presiding over the mirthmaking on the second floor.
All in all it is quite an impressive sight— but photographs don’t quite do it justice. Follows is a little video footage to help you appreciate the feast of the five senses that is 648 Humboldt. Enjoy!
I want to give a New York Shitty shout-out to the peeps of 648 Humboldt Street for this, their best Christmas display ever! In addition I would like to tender my heartfelt condolences to the residents of 646 and 650 Humboldt; I don’t think I could handle listening to that Christmas music ALL DAY.
