How To Get Totally ****ed In Greenpoint— Dirt Cheap

The one thing a neophyte Greenpoint will (or should) pick up on very early is the fact the local Polish community is very socially conservative. The above flier (which hails from Manhattan Avenue at Eagle Street) is one of many of its ilk that graces the construction fences, fire alarm boxes and light poles of our fair burgh. Given its missive it is hardly surprising that a number of pharmacies located in the Garden Spot of the Universe also refuse to carry Plan B. Don’t believe me? Go to the one located on the northeast corner of Nassau Avenue and Leonard Street and see for yourself; they have signs prominenetly featured in all their windows.

Or better yet, skip them and go to this establishment across the street. It is much more interesting. Yesterday I patronized “Murawski Pharmacy” looking for “quirky” Polish items to send as Christmas presents. When I entered a gaggle of what can best be described as Polish soccer moms were poised around a stroller watching one of number’s crotchling play with a balloon. Even I had to admit: it was cute. Then I walked past them and came face to face with this.

The gallon of Poland Spring water at the bottom left should help you establish some sense of “Tiny’s” scale: roughly the size of my forearm. I was bemused by the fact this device seems to be operated by a hand crank. But I guess at a paltry asking price of $17.99 the user should expect some measure of do-it-yourselfing.

I wonder how many of these they have sold?

  2. I don’t know how many dildoes that pharmacy has sold, but they’ve sold those products for as long as I can remember, and that goes back a while since I used to run my grandma’s prescriptions to that pharmacy.

    At least they had the common decency to put it on the second floor of the store, all of three small steps from the first floor.

  4. they used to sell ear piercing guns too. that place is a teenaged girls dream! they might still have the guns, i haven’t been since i started taking regular meds that they don’t carry. do they have plan b? my favorite thing about the place with the no plan b signs is that all their signs are basically ads for plan b.

Tell me what you're thinking...
