Here’s the deal: I have not gotten out much lately. Part of this is due to the fact it has been very, SERIOUSLY cold. Thankfully I have had my snow globe project(s) to keep me busy. Today, being as it reached a downright sultry 41 degrees, merited a walk. It was the first time I have hit the “Catwalk” (READ: Bedford Avenue) since New Years Day. During the previously-mentioned sojourn I spied a charbroiled mattress on North 7th Street right outside the Bedford Avenue stop of the L. Finding this interesting I took a couple of photos. Without further ado, here they are!
Now let’s jump forward to January 19, 2015. Guess what? It is still there.
What’s more, I managed to capture something I honestly thought I had missed: a fellow giving himself a face/hair check courtesy of one of our shiny new(er) buildings!
Here’s looking at you, kid.

From today’s trip to two “Little Italies”. I told the Mister this was the antithesis of Lumbersexualism. He agreed. When I thought further about it (given “trends” in north Brooklyn) this could be a moneymaker.
The key is “re-branding”. Make tattooing your head to look like you have a shaved head (sans male pattern baldness) be “cool”, “hip” and “hep” on purpose! I predict a big market for this in North Brooklyn in five years. Ten at most. Just imagine the money you’ll save on hats.

As promised, here is a slide show featuring items of interest I encountered while take a New Year’s Day stroll around points Green and beyond. When I left the apartment the Mister wished me luck in my hunt for “barfcicles”. He’s thoughtful that way. What’s more, it must have worked because it did not take me long to find one. Actually, it is more like barf buckshot.
NOTE: I elected to be somewhat judicious when
selecting curating material encountered in Williamsburg (Bedford Avenue in particular) as it is pretty much trashed on any given weekend. Enjoy!
Have a shot of post-New Year’s Eve debauchery? I would very much like to see it! You can kick ‘em over to my photo pool or via email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com.
