It’s time for our semi-regular series “Friday Five Around Town” in which I take you on a walk around my Brooklyn neighborhood.
1. Dixon’s Bike Shop. This wall mural is for Dixon’s Bike Shop which has been in the neighborhood since 1966 (not quite as long as suggested by what these folks are wearing).
When we say something is “up the street” or “down the block,” it’s not too far.
2. Brownstone. There’s something about this old Brownstone that I love. Maybe it’s the shape of the windows or the archways. It dates back to 1882.
3. Stoop Giveaway. One man’s junk… If you don’t need your old tarps or garment bags or Andy Warhol poster just leave it on your stoop, I bet there’s someone else in Brooklyn who does.
4.Flapper band. I don’t know why there was a group of twenty-somethings dressed in 1920s attire singing “I can’t give you anything but love, baby,” but they look pretty smooth if you ask me.
5. Manhattan skyline at sunset. There’s the Empire State Building in the center.
What’s been going on in your neighborhood this week?
Have a great weekend everyone!
