From The New York Shitty Inbox: Preserve The G Train Extension!

This petition was brought to my attention by its creator: Lincoln Restler, Democratic State Committeeman for Brooklyn’s 50th Assembly District and all-around great guy. If you agree with me that this is one change the MTA has made that is worth keeping, please take a moment to sign this petition. Thanks!

Billyballs, The Old Gallery Bar: Kensington Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

I love the old bars of Brooklyn, especially the ones far away from the hipsters, bars that look nothing like Manhattan.

The Old Gallery, which has been around for over forty years, sits underneath the elevated tracks on McDonald Ave, the F rumbling overhead.

Billyballs (that’s what everyone calls him) been coming here for over thirty years, and other than making sure I did not get in the way of watching his numbers, was happy to pose for me.

Love it!

New York Shitty Day Starter: From Gowanus To Ditmas

Filed under: Brooklyn, Ditmas Park, Flatbush, Kensington 

Today’s slide show will take us on a venereal journey from the alpha:

go-green-gowanusnys

The Gowanus Canal as seen above, replete in its septic, aromatic and Gonohorreaic glory, to Kensington, Ditmas Park, Flatbush (the shots of the old Loew’s Theatre are my favorites) and back again to Kensington for the omega:

S.T.D. Wines and Liquors at 89 Church Avenue.

Enjoy!

P.S.: For more information about the fetid state of the Gowanus Canal watch this. And take note that our very own David Yassky— the ostensible chair of the Newtown Creek Monitoring Commitee— and frequent “no show” (he sends his P.R. hack Rami Metal instead) is against super-funding Gowanus. If Gowanus goes will Newtown Creek be next? I wouldn’t rule out the possibiliy. Ours is the best government developers can buy.
