Quicklink: Where People Don’t Vote


This amazing map was brought to my attention courtesy of Phil Depaolo. As you can plainly see, the Garden Spot has the dubious distinction of turning out to the polls in less-than-stellar numbers (13%, to be precise). If we want to see things change hereabouts, we need to make our voices heard at the polls. It really is that simple folks. Or, as Pa Heather piquantly puts it:

This is how flaming assholes get into office. Check the numbers on the recent LA mayoral election.

Dear ol’ dad has an economy with words…

It would appear a favorite steakhouse of the Mister’s, DeStefano’s, has hit the market for just shy of $3,000,000 million dollars.


91 Conselyea St LIVE THE BROOKLYN DREAM! Flawlessly situated on the corner of Conselyea and Leonard Street, is this beautiful, massive mixed-use brick property offering an exquisitely crafted NYC Steakhouse Restaurant with a private residence above and its own 2 car garage with addition FAR; all 100% owner occupied!

Urban Fur: The Best Bodega Cat In Brooklyn, R.I.P.



Last night the Mister and yours truly were walking down Lorimer Street. As we approached Meeker Avenue, I excitedly told him we were about to pass the bodega that the fittingly-named furkid, Tank, called his place of work and play.  You can undoubtedly understand my sadness, gentle readers, when I happened upon the above memorial. Rest in peace, big boy, you are and will continue to be missed.

Spotted At 648 Manhattan Avenue: Another One Bites The Dust



Those of you who are not fluent in Polish and are curious to know what’s going on here, this establishment is going out of business and is having a sale. I asked the proprietor (I was there to purchase a few goodies) if the landlord raised his rent to some prohibitive amount. He nodded his head.


As to what the future holds for Ellie, one of yours truly’s favorite “working” cats, that is anyone’s guess…
