Les Sans Culottes: Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Great band performing last night at the Sugar Hill Disco.

It was a very odd night. Sugar Hill Disco has been around for forty years, serving the local community. The owner, Eddie, noticing the change in the neighborhood and being “a great business man” has decided to start catering to the younger, whiter crowds.

It was a fun, at times odd, clash of the old with the new.

I got a big hug and invite from Eddie for Thursday Karaoke with the old time crowd. I can’t wait for that.

Bed Stuy Photos du Jour: United With Love Towing

As if this sight was not interesting enough (I mean, who does not want their automobile towed with amor) I spied something really cool around the corner.

Being the colossal dork that I am I honed in on the old school telephone number immediately: EVergreen 4 4880. My buddy Chris and I, being curious, later swung by 451 Lorimer Street to see what was there today. Guess what?

Salerno’s is still there…

and they still have the same phone number! Inasmuch as things have changed in north Brooklyn it is refreshing to see something that has stayed the same. Methinks I’ll print out a nice glossy photo of the above truck and give it to them. To be continued…?

P.S.: Oh yeah, how can I not resist posting this photo of a rather winsome ham who wanted me to take his picture?

Nice smile!

Bed Stuy Photos Du Jour: Bottoms Up!

October 15, 2010 ·

Speaking as a Greenpoint resident, I can attest that I see empty liquor bottles— lots of them— on a daily basis. What I have never seen, however, is an artful arrangement of said items. This brings me to the image above (which was taken at DeKalb Avenue).

This is truly impressive.

What’s more, the person(s) responsible for this have seen fit to separate the bottles from the cans. NICE!
