Culture on the Cheap
A Walk Around The Garden Spot
Despite the less than hospitable weather I knocked around the Garden Spot early yesterday afternoon. My persistence was quickly rewarded, as the neighborhood was rocking its inimitable mojo a little more than usual. Follows are some highlights.
As I approached McGuinness Boulevard things started getting interesting. I noticed (yet) another psychic has set up shop. Such establishments are rapidly becoming as pervasive as banks and Thai restaurants in the Garden Spot. Note the gentleman in the above photograph. He not only sports an eye patch, but is also rocking a DIESEL trucker hat. Methinks we might have discovered north Brooklyn’s first septuagenarian hipster!
This awaited me a few doors east of the psychic shack. As you can see, someone is none too pleased with the B24′s quality of service— or lack thereof.
Shoddy public transportation was not the only thing the local population was angry about either.
Too bad paint pens don’t come with a spell check function. They should.
That’s alright Greenpoint. Miss Heather loves ya! And this, dear readers, ends our walk around the Garden Spot!
