Greenpoint Photo du Jour: The Corner Frenzy

This afternoon as I was strolling by the Corner Frenzy I wondered to myself:

Gee, I wonder if they’re serving ice cream yet?

Luckily for me (and north ‘Point ice cream lovers), the bad-ass lass who presides over this establishment, Miriam, was out front. I asked her if they were selling the cold stuff. She said not just yet. Those of you who want to get your sweet-tooth on will have to wait until after they come back from vacation: April 12th, 2012. So there have you!

The inimitable Manhattan Avenue soft-serve mistress (and all-around badass) Miriam enjoys a little “downtime” with the “company” (READ: her mother’s) i-Pad!

Tip From “The Strip”: Milton Street

Shortly before the storm hit yesterday my Greenpoint compadre on the strip that is Manhattan Avenue, co-proprietress of The Corner Frenzy’s empanada and ice cream stand, Miriam, advised me that M.I.A. shot a video on Milton Street— and that there was a new mural which (purportedly) provided the backdrop. While not a connoisseur of such stuff (my tastes run more “old school”) when she tells me to check out something I DO IT. Five minutes ago.

Here it is. Along with another morsel of Greenpoint goodness!

Thanks Miriam— and see you tomorrow!

There is a very good reason this, my very favorite ice cream lady, is smiling. Apparently our very own Corner Frenzy will be featured in the New York Daily News! Mazel tov!

UPDATE, 1:38 pm.: When I told my ice cream maven I was featuring her today she— and her mother— were excited. She inquired:

How do my boobs look?

I replied:

I don’t honestly remember. I’m not into that kind of thing. It’s a really cute picture, tho. Do you want me to send the Mister down to look at your boobs?

She demurred— but added:

I’ve got the two scoops. Come on down and get ’em!

Indeed.
