New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: Greetings From The Bronx

September 22, 2009 ·
Filed under: 11222, Bronx, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

As I have mentioned previously my brother in law is currently staying with us. Since he is only here for four days we have a jam-packed itinerary. Today the Mister took him to Lomzynianka Restaurant for some blue chip Polish vittles. They were provided a little post-meal entertainment in the manner of a crazy lady screaming at no one in particular on Manhattan Avenue. If the previous is not THE quintessential Greenpoint experience I honestly don’t know what is. But I digress.

Yesterday’s destination on our gustatory tour de force of the outer boroughs was Morris Park. After we gorged ourselves on ungodly amounts of Italian food at Patricia’s we went for a little walk. It was at the intersection of Lydig and Crueger Avenue that we stumbled upon this.

I cannot decipher the bottom half of this missive but I do not think it diminishes the author’s message in any way. The first five letters pretty much say it all.

One of the cool things about Morris Park is a walk around the neighborhood is like going back in time. Many of its storefronts have hardly been touched in 30, 40 and perhaps even 50 years. Follows is a selection of my favorite sights from today’s day trip. Enjoy!

Tomorrow I will conclude my Morris Park sojourn with a little food porn.

Morris Park Photos Du Jour: Signs

August 30, 2009 ·
Filed under: Bloomblight, Bronx, Dog Shit Signage 

As I indicated previously, today the Mister and I took our “staycation” to the Bronx. The objective of this trip was partake of real, honest-to-god Italian food in New York City’s lesser known “Little Italy”. I will go into the gustatory part of our trip a little later. This post is going to focus on the great variety of signage to be found in my former stomping grounds.

There were plenty run-of-the-mill signs of pick up your dog poo/stay of my lawn variety to be certain. On the other hand there were a quite few that stood head and shoulders above the others— or simply made you scratch your head and say “What the fuck”? Enjoy!

This is not a sign per se, but it does make light of a failure to communicate.

A very Morris Park stimulus plan.

WOW

It’s the economy stupid!

I cannot find the words to describe this one. That’s why I shot video instead!

Nothing like some good ol’ Bloomblight to bring two boroughs together! (For those of you who are wondering, the inside looks even worse than the outside.) But back to signs— and the strangest pair of messages I have ever seen gracing a single storefront. The following hail from 1084 Morris Park Avenue.

YOUGET

Sure, this one seems simple enough— but look at its companion found six feet to the left.

The stars-n-stripes, Lady Liberty and… HIV?

And with this puzzler I will conclude this installment of my Morris Park adventure. Next up: a selection of Morrisparkitecture. Stay tuned!
