Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: Bedford Avenue

This interesting counterpoint to today’s find on Huron Street hails from (where else) Bedford Avenue.

New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: Southside Sartorialism

I happened upon this fellow this afternoon on Bedford Avenue. It has been my observation that the “cat walk” (my moniker for Williamsburg’s main drag) has many a folk strutting his/her stuff. Most think they look better than they really do. And then you have this gentleman. His fashion sensibility (which I would describe as Bootsy Collins with a dash of Road Warrior) tickled my fancy. Note the monocle installed onto the eye wear. I am pleased to report he had a great personality to match. I give this get-up two enthusiastic thumbs up. Well done!

Spiderman is rocking a pretty fierce sidekick nowadays. Per the person who brought this to my attention, this hilarious item not only survived the recent blizzard, but has graced this intersection for at least three months.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Christmas Present For The MTA

A merry hooligan named Julian writes:

Hey Heather,

It has been awhile since piece but I just put up my latest piece a Christmas present to the MTA at Bedford L stop that I thought you might be interested in…






The present is waiting for the MTA to come pick it up at Bedford Ave stop, it is going to be there for the next 24 hours thanks to the watchful eye of the Bedford Ave busker. It is just a mould of my body but it sure has confused a number of people thinking it is a mime.

Nice. Perhaps Julian should knock out one of these bad boys for the Crosstown Local? Given the recent “green-lighting” of Greenpoint Landing…
