Spotted On Berry Street: Hairs & Wears

Filed under: 11211, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 

The first thing that caught my eye were the rather jaunty signs gracing the entrance of 86 Berry Street. After I took the above photographs a chap entering building told me to check this place out. So I did!

As intimated, they had a rather nifty array of wares.

I was a particularly enthralled by this top sporting the lovely visage of Audrey Hepburn.

As its name indicates, Head Chop features both apparel (including a large number of hoodies) and hairdresser-in-residence to give your hair trim. You can learn more about this new(ish) establishment by perusing their web site. Check it out!

Greenpoint Street Art Du Jour: Manhattan Avenue

I featured a piece not unlike this one not too long ago. In my post I asserted the woman in question was Veronica Lake. A number of readers disagreed with my assessment and in light of more, um, information I agree with them. My educated guess is this is Janet Leigh. Thoughts, anyone?

UPDATE, June 13, 2010: My mom nailed it. She is Anita Ekberg. So there have you!

An Art Space Coming To Manhattan Avenue?

Many of you probably know that Head Hoods has taken residence in this building (which is located at the corner of Bayard Street). What you might not know is the space next door is slated to become a working artist’s space replete with shows and all that fun stuff. Per the very nice gentleman* who operates this space, Kent, this is going to happen. Soon. He told me to watch for the banner he is going to place next to the front door. I mostly assuredly will!

New Art Space At 4237 Manhattan Avenue
Opening Date:
T.B.A.
423 – 427 Manhattan Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222

And that’s all she wrote… for now!

*He even asked if I would care to take home the above photograph of the birds as he “didn’t like it very much” and planned to rotate images anyway. Since I had several hours of walking ahead of me I declined. It was a very gracious offer nonetheless!
