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.

It has been a long time since I have hit you up with some found toys. I assure you this was not an oversight on my part: I simply haven’t found any playthings of note. That is until last weekend. Enjoy!

Williamspoint Photos Du Jour: Hanging Out

Unlike a number of people I was not bitten by the bug that is “Super Bowl Mania”. Quite frankly, I could care less and am very happy it is over. Super Bowl Sunday (as they call it) was such a beautiful day there was no way I was going park my butt in front of a television. I’d rather be out savoring the fifty degree weather. I was not alone. The following are highlights of my Sunday afternoon sojourn. Enjoy!

GREENPOINT AVENUE

Don’t let the dour expression on this woman’s face fool you: she’s lovin’ it!

NASSAU AVENUE

I have no idea what these gentlemen were discussing but they were clearly having a good time.

MANHATTAN AVENUE

Enid’s rolled out another fantastic bit of snowflake art. Not that their clientele seemed to notice.

BEDFORD AVENUE

It was a great day to get out and take photographs…

Felines Lost & Found

January 29, 2009 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg 

I have a couple of pet-related items to relay to you. In the interest of brevity (it’s been a long day) I have decided to put them in one quick and easy post. Here it goes.

LOST

mingus

First up, Mingus the cat has gone MIA. I’m not too certain where his home is but this flier hails from Huron Street. So all of you who live in the general area keep an eye out for this little fella. It goes without saying (but I’m to say it anyway) if you have seen him or know of his whereabouts please contact his owner at the above telephone number. Thanks!

FOUND

found

This item comes courtesy of Laura Hofmann. She writes:

This cat showed up today on our 5th floor fire escape… He wondered onto a brick gargoyle on the front of the building. Fortunately, my son was able to reach him and rescue him. We’ve knocked on many doors in our apt building. Looks like he doesn’t belong to anyone here. The cat has a purple collar on it.
If you know who this brave little guy (or gal) belongs to please contact Laura via email at  bargeparkpals (at) msn (dot) com. In the meantime their building’s super is keeping him/her safe and warm in their building’s basement overnight.
ecc
Last up, for those of you who do not have a cat (but very much want one) Empty Cages Collective will be having another adoption event at NYC Pet Supplies this Saturday, January 31 starting at 1:00 p.m. Check it out!

Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: Broke On Bedford

From the look of things I’d say this person’s fund raising effort was either successful enough to merit dispensing the signage or he simply gave up.

Miss Heather

P.S.: On a related note when I walked by this encampment (on Berry Street) last night I shit you not they were watching an evening news feature about the economy. And chuckling quite heartily.

Williamsburg Photos Du Jour: FUBAR On North 7th Street

December 14, 2008 ·
Filed under: Williamsburg 

In true Williamsburg form, merely setting this newspaper thingamajig (which was for a real estate or parenting rag if I remember correctly) on fire didn’t deter the local population from stuffing it to the gills with refuse. Adapt and overcome: that’s progress the north Brooklyn way of life!
