Billyballs, The Old Gallery Bar: Kensington Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

I love the old bars of Brooklyn, especially the ones far away from the hipsters, bars that look nothing like Manhattan.

The Old Gallery, which has been around for over forty years, sits underneath the elevated tracks on McDonald Ave, the F rumbling overhead.

Billyballs (that’s what everyone calls him) been coming here for over thirty years, and other than making sure I did not get in the way of watching his numbers, was happy to pose for me.

Love it!
