Culture on the Cheap
Hey Williamsburg, it’s time to get ILL!
As you may or may not be aware, I am on a quest to locate and document every Belvedere building the blights Brooklyn’s streets. Well, I regret to inform you that my “Meet the Belvederes” map will be offline temporarily. This is because I have to replace it with one that covers a larger geographical area.
I found this, Belvede
rve IIILL, at 135 North 9th Street yesterday. Don’t believe me? Well here’s a close-up of the sign, read it for yourself.
Why the long face, my cooler-than-thou ‘nabes to the south? One wee widdle Belvedere won’t hurt you. If it’s any consolation, their construction practices are much better than their ability to spell or use Roman numerals. Not that this is really saying much, mind you.
P.S.: Come to think of it, I should donate a learning tool I found in front of P.S. 34 recently to these folks.
Although it looks really neat in my living room, I think they could really use it.
