Rockaway Beach

Filed under Photos

(Photos by Bald Punk – Rockaway Beach, Queens) You probably don’t know it, but that fence dividing the beach in a few photos is known throughout NYC. Even the hole in the fence is legendary. As a wee lad I heard about the fence and recognized it the moment I stepped foot on Rockaway Beach many years later. […]

St Elias Church – For Sale!

(Photos by Bald Punk – St Elias of Greenpoint, Brooklyn) It was pretty sad to see this church was for sale. Hopefully it won’t be turned into a club or something other than a place of worship. As a youngin the club I went to the most was Limelight on Sixth Ave and 20th Street in NYC. […]

Ghosts of South Street

(Photos by Bald Punk – South Street) The voices I heard on South Street weren’t just any old voices. They’re ones that months ago that I had also heard in a dream . . . I was a man possessed, acting like a mad dog. And I was loose on South Street by the old Fulton Fish […]

Various NYC Photos

(Photos by Bald Punk – New Warsaw Bakery, *Greenpoint Brooklyn) Tomorrow night I should post the next part in the episode that started with That Damned South Street! I think it will be titled “19th Century Voices of South Street.” *Warsaw Bakery is on the Williamsburg/Greenpoint border. When I went inside and all they had for sale was bread, no […]

Christ Presbyterian by the Sea in Broad Channel

(Photos by Bald Punk – Christ Presbyterian by the Sea – Broad Channel, Queens) I’m sure at one time Broad Channel was just a nice little summer getaway in Queens. Now it’s a year-round community. Today I was showing one of my relatives the pictures on this site. Overall, I was happy with them, though realized I need to get […]

Old American Theatre in Greenpoint

(Photos by Bald Punk – American Theatre in Greenpoint, Brooklyn) This is the old American Theatre on Manhattan Ave, a few doors down from the corner of Greenpoint Ave. As a kid my mother’s favorite things to do were to go swimming at McCarren Park, ice skating in Right Triangle Playground, and going to the movies at the American. […]

That Damned South Street!

(Photos by Bald Punk – South Street) After a week in which I had found clouds at every turn during the day, including inside various dust-choked demo-sites where I worked, that Friday night was supposed to have been a good one. Off early from work, I went home, took a shower, and zipped back out to one of my […]

St Frances de Sales in Belle Harbor

 (Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) I parked in a bus stop and took these photos in a jiffy. I did it so fast, I think it’s proof that a miracle occurred. In two of the pictures of the Prayer Garden, if you look at the brick walkway, it’s perfectly square with the […]

Seagulls of Riis Park

(Photos by Bald Punk – Riis Park, Queens) This was my first time ever in Riis Park. The place is a bit of a joke because it’s the *only area in NYC where people can sunbathe in the nude, which for a variety of reasons is not palatable here. Maybe because we’re not in the best shape here, plus when New Yorkers look, […]

St Ephrem’s in Dyker Heights

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to fully enlarge) I feel bad to say that I’ve passed this church a bunch of times, yet the first close look I took was the other day when I had my camera. But that’s what a camera will do to you. I also thought the church was in […]
