Culture on the Cheap
Live From Rosemary’s Greenpoint Tavern: New York’s Bravest!
This morning yours truly got up bright and early. There was work to be done. Among other things I had to drop off a photo for developing, get a shipping container for another photo and drop off yet another photo to a friend who resides on Bedford Avenue. The latter-most task ended up being the highlight of my day. So far, anyway.
This is the vision which awaited me as I arrived at her apartment at 11:15 this morning: a gaggle of New York’s
Bravest Cutest engaging in a little St. Paddy’s day merrymaking at Rosemary’s Greenpoint Tavern! Naturally I headed over without delay.
Me (to two of New York’s Bravest): Can I take your picture?
Bravest #1: You aren’t from the Post, are you?
Me: (excised*) NO!
(Bravest #1 and #2 line up to pose for yours truly)
Me: Okay, on the count of three. 1, 2, the Post Sucks!
Bravest #1 & #2: THE POST SUCKS!
This post goes out to the hardworking men and women of fair our city’s Fire Department. Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
