New York Shitty Day Ender: Redemption

Sunday is (ostensibly) a day of rest and spiritual contemplation in most of north Brooklyn. Hence why I’m going to end this day’s posts with the following.

abandon-all-hope

Abandon all hope ye who use this pay phone (on Graham Avenue).

captain-zorikh

But redemption can be found down the street.

captains-prefer-fedders

Sort of.

182-graham-avenue

Per Captain Zorikh this is the place to get it. For the record 182 Graham Avenue is a SRO. Single. Room. Occupancy. Where, long ago, I had one of the most interesting— and curiously enough— least degrading (but odd) interviews for a sublet I have ever had. You can leave it to Dutch dominatrix to separate the wheat from the chaff. Or give me street cred for looking at a lavender wall replete with paddles, whips, chains and not being perturbed. In my (admittedly limited) experience the above-board sexual perverts (and I mean this in the kindest way) are benign. It’s the co-called normal ones, e.g.; bohunks wearing New York Yankees ball caps incorrectly (READ: backwards) who are dangerous.* But I digress.

A few years later I went to a party in same said building and told Mister Heather:

Had I not landed the apartment we have now, this is where I would have lived. You can still see the indentations where the restraints were anchored to the wall.

I failed miserably in the cooler-than-thou world that is the East Williamsburg apartment share scene. Which is curious because I excel at failure— something many East Williamsburg artists court— albeit ironically. I suppose I didn’t look stylish enough in my desperation. Or was *gasp* TOO OLD. So in Greenpoint remained. THANK GOD.

the-love-chapel

The Love Chapel: R.I.P. and available to rent!

jesus-saves-on-graham-ave

But Jesus still saves.

jesus-vs-the-beast

And Satan is around the corner!

redemption-on-navy-streetnys

You want redemption? The best place I found today was on Navy Street in DUMBO. Good luck.

Miss Heather

*Those of you who seek them can find them in the East Village.

  2. Jesus saves 50 cents by not being able to use this broken phone.

  4. Thanks for the plug! I hung that sign because I had accidentally sent out a notice to the cast of my new movie “The Redemption of Captain Zorikh” with the wrong address on it. So I hung the sign to tell people where to go.

    You can see more about my movie at http://www.captainzorikh.com/redemption

    And I am living down the hall from the Belgian lady in the “dungeon.” I don’t remember the guy in the dragon mask getting stoned, though, unless it was the vegetarian from Kentucky. When did you interview for the space?

Tell me what you're thinking...
