Culture on the Cheap
Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Connie O’s Gets A Makeover
After I took the above photographs noting Connie O’s new look a woman approached. She opened the conversation as follows:
My sister owns this bar. You’re not going to sue her or anything, are you?
Oh no, I just noticed your new sign. I really like it.
Lady: “Oh. Get those photos in a magazine, okay?”
Regrettably I cannot make this woman’s wish a reality— but I can tell you I have heard good buzz about this establishment. Apparently the beer there is among the cheapest to be found in the neighborhood!
UPDATE, July 11, 2010: A rather ugly incident at this establishment has been brought to my attention via comments.
