Bushwick and Bed-Stuy, friends 4-ever

Going up the steps to catch the J train, Broadway near DeKalb, right on the Bed-Stuy - Bushwick border.

What are the rents like in this neighborhood? Not too bad .... yet.

I love this old building across from the el. It looks like they tore down the rest of the block but just couldn't bring themselves to destroy this old treasure.

And further into Bushwick, one finds a Hallowe'en decoration still rockin' it.

Up close, it's actually pretty hideously frightening.

Flushing Avenue - corner of Tompkins, or thereabouts.

The dreaded Woodhull Hospital. Dreaded architecture and scary medical attention. Don't go here if you don't have to. 
At the 777 Deli - a humble hanging light within a grand setting.

But the setting itself is worth repeating, even without the light fixture.

This place at the Nostrand Ave. B38 bus stop - a failed deli that is now being turned into...another deli?


unambiguous lock - R-train platform at 86th Street, Bay Ridge.

Above ground, Bay Ridge. A billboard about love.
A smokey scene, Park Slope.

Behind the scenes at the coop. I'm just having a sandwich in the conference room while waiting to start my shift. I do data entry!

Total junk on offer at Duane Reade's, Jay Street.

A new product - take better selfies!

The interior of Cinnamon Girl deli/coffee spot. I like this place.

A little trip to Bellevue for an echocardiogram. What the hell - sorry, heck - is that, anyway?

Good-bye to all that.

Somewhere in Bed-Stuy - snow and slush. Even the focus is slushy.

Scenic Herbert Von King Park. Never looked better.

Von King Park - a good place to walk your dog.

Find the human - a mirror at Quentzel's plumbing place.

At the 777 Deli - kids buying junk food and snow outside.

a very tiny snowman. woman. person.

in situ.

a larger one - with sweet gum seed pod eyes and mouth.
