From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part III: The Queen of Queens

The Queen Of Queens

Of this, one of yours trulys favorite people, the taker of the above photograph, SeanieDawg, writes:

Oswaldo Gomez, the self-appointed “Queen of Queens” has been spotted all over NYC, never without his trusted parrot and not pictured, his little poodle. Both of these creatures are just as colorful as he is, and although this picture was taken in Coney Island, he resides in Jackson Heights, Queens.

I honestly cannot believe I missed this item before— so here it is! Thanks again, SeanieDawg!

P.S.: I have word her dog’s name is Carino. No word on what her feathered friend, though.

Jackson Heights Photos du Jour: A Little Sunshine On A Dreary Day

As some of you might recall I featured a photograph of this lass earlier this year. It was taken by none other than the immensely talented (and very nice) Steven R. Hazlett in Chelsea. So you can imagine my delight, dear readers, when I stumbled upon “Lady Gaga’s Grandmother” (also known as Oswaldo Gomez)  herself today on Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights! Not only was she (and furry friend) looking fine (as always) but she even complimented me on my hair! You can see more pictures of Oswaldo by clicking here.

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: “Hollywood” Via Queens

This vision hails, appropriately enough, from Broadway. Those of you who want to see your name (among other things) in lights, here’s your golden opportunity. My advice: get the money— cash only— upfront.

New York Shitty Day Ender: Roosevelt Avenue

As promised I am rounding out today’s postage with some highlights from my day trip to Queens. My buddy Richard and I got off at 90th Street, trekked 74th Street, grabbed some (DELICIOUS) Indian fare and called it day. And a great day it was: I thoroughly enjoyed taking in the sights, sounds and smells of Roosevelt Avenue! Before I proceed to the show I’d like to make a few observations/comments:

  1. I loved— no, make that LOVED— Little Mexico in Elmhurst! I plan on going back when I am more flush and stocking up on all manner and variety of spicy foodstuffs.
  2. My collection of “outcall” girlie/nudie cards now has seven new additions!
  3. I encountered what has to be the creepiest Michael Jackson souvenir I have ever seen. Save perhaps the King of Pop’s missing proboscis which I would just as well never see.
  4. “Baby Aroma” scented floor cleaner = very bad syntax
  5. Roosevelt Avenue (or at least the pigeons who call it home) are none too impressed with Absolut Brooklyn. I can’t honestly say I blame them. Speaking as someone who lives in a neighborhood where every imaginable variety of the stuff can be had (including “Poland Spring Vodka” which goes for $2.00 a fifth with accompanying plastic cups at 5 cents each!) The idea of ginger and apple infused vodka strikes me as being thoroughly repulsive.*
  6. The following slide show is (in my opinion) best seen in larger format (which can be done by clicking here).

Without further ado, here’s the show!

And on that note, dear readers, I am calling it a night!

*As does Vodkagate (a term coined by Aaron Short) AKA: FOLCfest (an acronym I adore which comes courtesy of Fucked In Park Slope) AKA: Giant Blogger Circle Jerk (as coined by my friends to the south at FreeWilliamsburg) for that matter. I tried to voice my disgust via comments on Cityroom to no avail. My comment was not published. They trotted out a bona fide (and seemingly unapologetic) Payola taker and deemed her worthy of dispensing advice to bloggers yet my comment, which criticized her actions in a very civil if harsh manner, did not meet their exacting standards. Perhaps next time I should offer them a bottle of vodka?  No worries, I had the presence of mind to take a screencap.
