From Bushwick With Love

As it would happen, a good friend of mine resides in Bushwick. On occasion she sees fit to send me pictures from her wanderings around the neighborhood. Today was one of those days. She writes:

I was going to save this and give it to you as an anniversary present, but it’s just too good to sit on till October. This is what I saw while walking my dog this morning. I made sure to swing back by with my camera on the way to the train to work. I did not arrange this. I merely happened by and saw its intrinsic sublimity.

This looks like one hell of a party (note the baggie of cocaine to the rat’s right). They sure seem to like Heineken down there. I sense a phat product placement deal will be headed Bushwick’s direction soon. With publicity like this, who needs Madison Avenue?

P.S.: Thanks a lot for the gift, Chintamani! This is like Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Ramadan all put together.

  4. My friend is a very gifted woman with an eye for things “New York Shitty”. I want her to be a guest contributor (for East Williamsburg/Bushwick), but we’ll see.

    I was more spooked by our Heineken connection: her bottle cap on a dead rat’s head and my pig head with an empty 24 oz. bottle (of the stuff). Dead animals (or parts thereof) and Heineken: who knew? 😉

  6. You were more spooked by the Heineken connection? You are one tough cookie!

    I think I was spooked by the rat, the cocaine, the fact that the rat is on a sprinkler thing, the bottle of cognac and YES the cap is disturbing! It is quite a still life composition.

  10. quarter life comeback: as it would happen, I was in Bushwick today. I didn’t find any partying rats, tho.
