Greenpoint Halloween Watch: 97 Russell Street Represents!

That’s right folks: the Halloween decorating (courtesy of a wonderfully sweet lady named Beverly) has begun.

It’s looking good!

Ghoulishly good!

As happenstance would have it, I bumped into the head of the 94th himself, Deputy Inspector Hurson, just around the corner on Driggs Avenue. I asked him if he had checked out this display. He had not. However, he did state that he had checked out 648 Humboldt Street. He was impressed— and rightfully so!

I took a moment to tell the folks responsible for this ever-growing display that I really liked the “day care” tableau (as seen above) and the girl in the pink dress reminded me of Courtney Love. They found this quite amusing— but added with a wink that this year might be their final run. I suspect I speak on the behalf of a number of north Brooklynites when I write:

Say it isn’t so!

To be continued…?

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Live From The Bath Tub Races!

Laura Hoffman (who took the above photographs) writes:

Hi Heather!

The bathtub races were awesome. I went with my youngest son and oldest grandson, while we waited for his parents and new brother to pick us up. Even though we couldn’t stay for the whole event,  we had fun. There was good music & food. And the thought of tub racing was hysterical. Thought you’d like to see the photos… When my oldest son, wife and new baby picked us up, we found ourselves driving behind a Bat Mobile.
