East Williamsburg Halloween Watch: Haunted on Hewes Street

I have been woefully remiss in posting some Halloween goodness from my friends to the south. Today I will redress this egregious oversight with some ghoulishly great decor courtesy of 363 Hewes Street. Enjoy!

Snapshots From Astoria

Yesterday evening the Mister and I ventured to Astoria to support our buddy Kevin Walsh, who happens to have a show of his photography at the Greater Astoria Historical Society.  For those of you keeping count, this is the second day in a row we have ventured to the county of Queens. Anyhoo, it has been awhile I have been to my former stomping grounds (I lived in Astoria briefly during graduate school) so I brought along my camera and took a few photographs. Follow are some highlights. Enjoy!

What Elvira and Marilyn Monroe have to do with shoes I do not know. Regardless I found this display charming.

CHANGE

Change may have come to America but it’s still business as usual at this storefront. Despite his odious politics the man behind this missive is— believe it or not— a very nice guy. I have spoken to him.

I did a double take at this. Something else the greater Steinway Street and Broadway area sports are really cool old-school storefronts.

A little ennui over pizza. And last— but hardly least—

my visit to Astoria taught me why I should never, EVER patronize a public pay phone again.

When I saw this artful arrangement of fliers on Broadway today I simply had to see what it was advertising. Here it is.

Apparently tomorrow, August 15, from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m., there will be an art opening at 99 South 6 Street featuring DJs, art and “free juice & more”. Intriguing— and the price is right!

And so the race to the bottom continues. Could someone please explain to me who watches this crap? Obviously someone does or they (in this case Oxygen) wouldn’t keep churning it out.

When I saw this magnifently wrecked (and quite old) one way sign I simply had to get a picture of it. It hails from Broadway near Lorimer Street.

Has Anyone Seen This Pup?

This week I have seen no less than a dozen of these fliers: once at Morgan Avenue by the Cooper Projects, another time on South 4th Street by the BQE and lastly on Broadway at Hewes Street. If you have seen this adorable pup or know of its whereabouts please contact the owner at the above telephone number. This is little fella is clearly missed.

Thanks.
