Williamsburg Photos Du Jour: Southside Cinderella

This afternoon the Mister and I went out for a walk, cameras in tow. Wishing to see sights that are genuinely interesting— not a spectacle that has been engineered as cheap campaign advertisement for a certain City Councilman running for Comptroller and the developer on whose site this dog and pony show came to pass. And, it should be noted, has seen fit generously donate to said councilman’s campaign.* We headed to the Southside without delay.

The Mister and I disagree about a number of things. You name it; we argue about it. Our household is like My Cousin Vinny albeit with a southern drawl: his. He’s a carnivore, I’m a vegetarian. I like sunshine, he prefers rain. He likes winter, I love summer.** The list goes on and on.

But we both agree one thing: we love Art Deco apartment buildings. The Southside has many of them. At some point I will feature my favorites right here on New York Shitty. But this post is an impressive Sweet Sixteen party we stumbled upon at South 2nd Street. Although it did feature ponies we had to confess: we were very impressed!






And of course the guest of honor…


A lovely lass in red!

This “Sweet Sixteen” celebration warmed my heart. Enough so that I’m go to end this post with a little Ringo.***

Happy Sweet Sixteen!

Miss Heather

*You can expect a post on New York Shitty about this. Soon.

**Which is sort of interesting given he was born in the summer and I in winter. I guess the grass is greener…

***The least objectionable and still very alive Beatle. Married to a former Bond girl and Playboy centerfold, no less: Barbara Bach.

  2. Could be it was a sweet 15 celebration, Miss H.

    From wiki:

    The Quinceañera, or Quince años (“fifteen years” in English), in Latin American culture, is a coming of age ceremony held on a girl’s fifteenth birthday. The term Quinceaños refers to the birthday of the celebrant, and the term Quinceañera refers to the celebrant herself. Like many other coming-of-age ceremonies, the Quinceaños is associated with the Quinceañera “becoming a lady”.

  4. Nope— and at first I thought that too! They specifically said “Sweet 16”! 😉
