Greenpoint Photo du Jour: Bridal Suite

As some of you are aware I was recently in a show curated by the proprietress of Found In Brooklyn at Freddy’s Backroom. A number of people (who did not attend the opening) have inquired as to what I submitted. I will finally endeavor to answer that question today.

After racking my brain the entire month of December and much of January I finally had my long-awaited eureka moment. When Mr. Heather arrived home from work on that most auspicious evening, I told him the good news: I know what I am going to do. And of course with the good news came the bad: we need to go to Calyer Street STAT— and to be sure to put on some clothing you don’t mind getting filthy. Surprisingly enough, he did not ask a single question and complied with my wishes.

Once we had completed this mission successfully it was time for stage 2:

  1. Locating a Siamese hydrant located a short distance from the ground.
  2. Acquiring a matching pair of thong underwear and pasties.

It took a while and I encountered many a setback, but in the end it all came together.

Have you ever carried a 40 pound tree stump down McGuinness Boulevard? If you are wondering what it is like ask my husband.

Williamsburg Photos du Jour: God Bless America

Adults Only

This work of art hails from (where else?) North 6 Street. Shortly after taking this photo I rather large drunk man groused at me because I was impeding access to his pick-up truck. Once he fired it up he revved the engine several times for everyone’s edification. Unimpressed, I announced:

(Measuring out 3 inches with my thumb and forefinger) His peenie is this big! Cocksucker.

Two New York City police officers standing nearby thought this was hilarious.

God Bless America

Speaking of size matters, I found this motor vehicle parked on Kent Avenue. Wondering exactly what kind of person would drive a minivan festooned with the stars and stripes, I took a peek at the license plates. They were from (drumroll)…

Texas.

You know what they say: everything’s bigger in Texas.

You may not get a dial tone at this pay phone but someone was thoughtful enough to leave a delicious can of Ensure for your delectation. Yummy.

Help keep New York City clean. Don’t do what this bad boot wearer did: always place your refuse inside the provided receptacles.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly On DeKalb Avenue

866 Dekalb Avenue

I recently discovered a really neat old building at 866 DeKalb Avenue.

Crystal Steam Laundry

It used to be the home of Crystal Steam Laundry. Fred K. Weis was its proprietor.

Crystal Laundry

At this advertisement from the November 19, 1902 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle indicates, they charged a mere 5 cents per pound of laundry. What a deal!

UGLY

Here’s a detail of 866 Dekalb’s new neighbor. Is that a Fedder’s box I see?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

No, make that FOUR Fedders boxes for four times the air conditioned FUN!

Disco Gyno

Perhaps I am reading too much into this, but who wants to patronize a gynecologist who appears to ply his trade in a disco? Just a thought.
