New York Shitty Photos du Jour: Spring Has Sprung!

The menagerie at North 1st Street and Bedford Avenue is proving to be provocative than usual lately.

New York Shitty Day Ender: Public Safety


Miss Mousey Brown was kind enough to tender this photo of our Public Safety Chair, Mieszko Kalita, to my photo pool. I suspect her reasoning for doing so was to highlight his rather jaunty tie. That, it is. The Mister even noted his pocket square (whatever that is) was in keeping with said tie. He called this sartorial. Nonetheless, this image provides me a reason to link to what he had to say about the so-called “moratorium” on liquor licenses and the rancor which preceded it on WPIX recently. I for one think his analysis is spot-on. You can (and should) check this out by clicking here.

P.S.: Mr. Kalita’s opinion has been endorsed by the UNofficial Community Board 1 Public Safety Committee Ladies Auxiliary by a vote of four in favor with one absence/abstention.

The Queen Of Queens

Of this, one of yours trulys favorite people, the taker of the above photograph, SeanieDawg, writes:

Oswaldo Gomez, the self-appointed “Queen of Queens” has been spotted all over NYC, never without his trusted parrot and not pictured, his little poodle. Both of these creatures are just as colorful as he is, and although this picture was taken in Coney Island, he resides in Jackson Heights, Queens.

I honestly cannot believe I missed this item before— so here it is! Thanks again, SeanieDawg!

P.S.: I have word her dog’s name is Carino. No word on what her feathered friend, though.

You know spring has truly arrived in north Brooklyn when Anthony Delia is back on his rounds. God, I love this guy!

I was pleased as punch to see the lovely owner of 97 Russell Street, Beverly, working with merry abandon her her latest opus. She informed me that the eggs gracing the stoop will light up. Awesome!

Brooklyn Finest

This find comes from a(nother) Greenpoint rock star, Bitchcakes. She writes:

I was sitting next to this gentleman on the G Train platform at Bedford-Nostrand last night after midnight and saw the “Brooklyn” hand and *loved* it. When we boarded the G, as I passed him, I told him how great I thought it was. Then he pulled out his other hand and told me I could photograph them if I wanted. Hell yeah! Thank you, sir! You rule!

Right on.

New York Shitty Slide Show du Jour: 57 Franklin Is Ready For Easter!

April 3, 2011 ·
Filed under: 11222, BAD ASS, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

After essentially casing this property for two weeks I am very pleased to announce that the Easter eggstravaganza is in effect at 57 Franklin Street! Not wanting to delay the completion of one of yours truly’s favorite holiday displays in the Garden Spot, I kept my conversation with the woman responsible for this short and sweet. However, I did learn a couple of interesting facts which I would like to share:

  1. She considers doing this very therapeutic.
  2. She has amassed approximately 500 eggs for this display because “people tend to steal them”.
  3. She then conceded she couldn’t really blame these folks: if she was a passerby she’d be tempted to take them too!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Very Special Piece of Street Seating

Amy (who took the above photograph) tendered nothing in the way of an explanation regarding this delightful item save its location: Banker Street at Wythe Avenue. I suspect I speak for everyone when I write that no more data is necessary: this comfy chair with an itch to scratch pretty much speaks for itself. Anyone care to take it home tonight?
