Anyone out there want some chicken heads? If so, head on down to North 5 Street and get you some.

Chicken Head

This one can be found on the north side of the street.

Chicken Heads and Candy

Her two decapitated companions can be found on the south side. What’s more, whoever left these delightful pieces of poultry was even kind enough to provide dessert. Julia Child (god rest her soul) would be proud!

As I was taking these photographs I watched a woman pushing a stroller drive right over of them. Either she simply didn’t notice or she didn’t care. This dude, however, took a break from talking on his cell phone to contemplate one.

  4. Try checking out the website on the buidling’s sign. It is which is a Toll site. Doesn’t look like anything in Brooklyn I know. Maybe Babs led them over here. Bleached hair does wonders for some. Doesn’t turn me on. Nor does Toll Brothers. Run for cover if they are coming in. They can make Belvedere look good.

  10. V.J. and T.F.K.S.: Chicken heads with brie is the dish for me! But what about the wine? If what the Beastie Boys said was true Blue Nun goes nice with chicken.

  12. In South Africa the chicken heads are the Talkie part of a Walkie Talkie. Street food: fried chicken heads and feet.
    Or, in a variation, the LookDown part of Runaways and LookDowns.
