The East Williamsburg Economic Stimulus Plan

February 12, 2009 ·
Filed under: Bushwick, Williamsburg 

Those of you who have the pleasure of whiling away your time reading my blog probably have jobs (or at least good severance packages and Internet access). Regardless of your employment status, dear readers, chances are your 401K (if you even have one) is shot to shit. My shit got shot a long time ago. I operate under the presumption that I’ll be working until the day I die. Or rendered into Soylent Green. Whichever comes first.

That is until this tree from Seigel Street entered my life.

A group of gentleman found my interest in this tree (and the numerous tags attached to it) interesting. I, in turn, found them interesting so I asked:

What’s up with this tree?

They replied in unison:

It’s the money tree.

Not caring to futz around with economic esotericism and abstract rhetoric (that’s the stuff that got us— U.S.—in this bind in the first place ) I asked:

If you get a lot of money from this tree can I have some?

The Seigel Street Cadre:

Sure.

Maybe money really does grow on trees? In any case I’ll be walking around Seigel Street more often.

And last— but not least— ladies, beware of the Seigel Street hymen hunter!

*They also have an assortment of anatomically correct (in all the right or wrong places— one’s sense of taboo and/or religious upbringing notwithstanding) inflatable lady dolls behind the counter for all you single guys out there. Hey, at least you won’t need Plan B the morning after!

Tell ’em Miss Heather sent you.

How I could have overlooked this in the light of Lux Interior’s untimely passing is beyond me. The previous having been said, this soon-to-be antiquated set of bunny ears hails from Boerum Street.

Bushwick Photo Du Jour: The Best

February 4, 2009 ·
Filed under: Bushwick, Williamsburg 

If you’re looking for “the best” look no further: I have found him. Sort of.

thebestnys

His name is “Sam” and I’m guessing he either lives or works near this stop of the B60 bus. There is no indication whatsoever of what Sam is “the best” at (I’ll leave that to your imagination), but whatever it is he must be pretty damned good: his praises are not written on this piece of public property once, but twice.

Is this is a bus driver romance in the making? I certainly hope so. MTA employees need lovin’ too!

This post is dedicated to a good friend of mine who lost her best friend yesterday. Sir Galahad might be gone but he will not be forgotten. May he rest in peace.
