Islam in New York: Dania in Sunset Park

When Dania asked me why I wanted to take her picture, I said “I am hoping to do a photo series on Islam in New York. To try….” Here she jumped in and with a big smile said “To try and show we are not all terrorist?” Yes, kind of like that!

Reader Contribution Du Jour: LEADERSHIP

This item comes courtesy of my buddy Lost In Brooklyn in Greenwood Heights. He writes (in an email entitled “A Photo For Your Greenwood Heights/Sunset Park Tour”):

Something you may have seen on 4th Ave in the 30’s. A recent reno of the PS and their signage. See if you can figure out why Mic and were…stopped dead in our tracks.

I have serious issues with this image. For starters shouldn’t “Leadership” be located on the other end?

Playing in the dirt is just plain underated

Carnade’s photos from our excursion to Sunset Park yesterday are starting to trickle onto Flickr! Of the above shot (which hails from Sunset Park proper) he writes:

Paco (on the right) and his brother having a blast with sticks, dirt, water. The mom kind of looked at me, shrugged her shoulders, and said; Kids…..

You should have seen these kids’ littlest brother. He was completely covered in mud. Clearly these young ‘uns know how to have a good time!

As I have previous stated, yesterday I spent late afternoon and evening with the inimitable Carnade knocking around Sunset Park. In addition to making the acquaintance of Thatcher the Bodega Cat and stumbling upon a particularly nifty piece by Dan Witz we saw (and photographed) a lot of neat stuff. Follows are some highlights from yours truly. Enjoy!

As always you can view this slide show in larger format by clicking here.

Urban Fur: Meet The Iron Lady

August 18, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11232, Sunset Park, Sunset Park Brooklyn 

This afternoon/evening yours truly went on a photo walk with a frequent contributor of my photo pool: Carnade. Knowing my affection for Mexican culinary items we decided to check out Sunset Park. He played tour guide. Where he went, I followed. One of the stops we made was at the above bodega: Sam’s Grocery. It is, as I learned, a very curious place. For starters I met Sam: he is Lebanese. For those of you playing along at home (and to make it perfectly clear) we are in a bodega which sells Mexican groceries whose (very nice) proprietor hails from the Middle East. Stuff such as this is why I love New York City. But it gets much more interesting, as you will see.

Meet Sam’s bodega cat in residence. Carnade inquired as to what this fetching feline’s name was.

Thatcher.

Sam replied. Carnade and I couldn’t believe what we just heard so we asked again.

Thatcher, you know after the British Prime Minister. It’s a nice name, yes?

Sam said.

Me (once I absorbed what I have just heard):

I guess it depends on one’s politics.

Then Carnade asked the $64,000 question:

Do you like Margaret Thatcher?

To wit Sam gave the coup de grace:

No, I hate her.

And then he proceeded to explain why. Inasmuch I could ascertain Sam’s dislike of Ms. Thatcher had something to do with Cyprus. Exactly why Sam elected to name this (very friendly) cat after the Iron Lady remains a mystery. Methinks it is probably better that way.
