Taking the new with the old (neighborhoods, that is)

It's this guy, again, at Nostrand and Lafayette...
accompanied today by a holy lady
last night in Bushwick
the new neighborhood, downtown Brooklyn/Boerum Hill has this gigantic fruit stand - it seemed to go on for an entire block
and then in BookCourt, the bookstore on Court St, I spied Eileen's book on a table of 'suggested titles'
Atlantic Ave. races into the future, except for this place, Hank's Saloon, at Third Ave and Atlantic

The Notorious B.I.G. honored here at Lexington & Bedford
and I needed a ticket, fast, to take care of the Christmas blues
somewhere in Bed-Stuy someone has an idea about governance
This is what it looks like when you get on the train at rush hour, going in the wrong direction - lots of space, and a few sleepy people. Everyone else is on the other train, going into Manhattan.
the possibilities are endless
looking through a hole in the sky, Barclay's Center
the construction never stops here on Flatbush Avenue
But I love that this small building persists in reminding us of what the neighborhood used to be about
these good people are in search of decent affordable housing for everyone in NYC, kept behind barriers - a police tactic that everyone now accepts, creating distance between freedom of speech and the person the speech is intended for, in this case, the Mayor
while these good people are waiting to get into the press conference being held by the Mayor where he will speak to the issue of affordable housing
since I moved, my commute takes me to the heart of the financial district before heading for the Staten Island Ferry
Lafayette Ave at Nostrand. The importance of a central theme communicated through symmetry
A storefront in Ridgewood near my storage space fascinates me, draws me in. I will go in next time just to satisfies my curiosity.
this is it - the last hour of the last day as I moved from my old place in Bed-Stuy to the temple in Boerum Hill
