Although I have featured this ride earlier this month I couldn’t resist passing along a few shots of its latest incarnation.

The freecycled windshield (which the Mister has told me is the back of an old iMac) is an inspired touch!

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

The James Farley Post Office in our fair city proclaims just this! Contrary to popular belief, this is not the motto of the United States Postal Service. It is derived from Herodotus‘s account of the couriers of the Persian Empire. The above (which hails from Richardson Street) is, conversely, 100% Brooklyn.

Speaking as someone who has had her mail stolen*, I want to see THIS carved in stone.

Miss Heather

P.S.: I don’t know who this mailman is but I want him (or her) on my route.

*An unemployment check no less. Endorsed in shaky handwriting and presented at a local check cashing establishment. It was seized. In a nutshell: someone who is clearly NOT Polish should not try to cash checks issued to someone with a clearly Slavic name in Greenpoint. AKA: Little Poland. This isn’t racism. This is common sense.

Something Neat: New Mural on Richardson Street

December 16, 2009 ·
Filed under: 11211, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 

There has long been a mural at the intersection of Lorimer and Richardson Street. Over the years it has fallen into a state of disrepair. Hence why I was very pleased to discover a new mural has taken its place! Follows are some highlights.

This mural, as with any work of art for that matter, is best experienced in person. For this reason I strongly advise that if or when the opportunity arises you swing by and give it a look-see. It’s really neat!
