(Photos by Bald Punk – Rikers Island sign – East Elmhurst, Queens) Rikers Island, aka The Big House, is one of the most depressing places in NYC. I went there to visit someone and felt like I was being sucked into a black hole. Most of the guards seemed depressed and all the criminals reminded me of […]

Steinway Reformed Church in Astoria

(Photos by Bald Punk) We were driving down Ditmars Blvd when I saw this sweet little church. I jumped out of the car and took the photos real quick. Now that I’m home and looking at them, I think I could have spent a little more time getting better angles. But that’s a thought I have most […]

Broad Channel in Queens

(Photos by Bald Punk) I like going to seaside places in NYC like Broad Channel. If I listen close enough I can hear echoes from the past, escecially the gay voices of summers-long-gone. In the above photo you can see a diving board. When I first saw it, for a half-sec I wondered what it was […]

The Strange Case of Ghostly People on South Street

(Photos by Bald Punk – Peck Slip/South Street) My lady friend(LF) called the psychic Carrie Robbins, and I got on the phone and told her about the three ghosts that we saw in a bar down by South Street. Of the four of us, I saw them the clearest and could swear that their images clung […]

St Rosalia-Regina Pacis Parish in Dyker Heights

Filed under Photos

(Photos by Bald Punk) St. Rosalia-Regina is such a gorgeous church. But it was tough to get a good photo of the full structure. It has that tall tower, and when I went across the street to find the best shot, there were all sorts of powerlines in the way. If I keep eating soon […]

(Photos by Bald Punk, Manhattan Municipal Building, Civic Fame statue) Lately, I’ve posted a lot photos from the beach and inlet section of Queens. I need more inland photos from that borough, and also want to take more of the Bronx. I also hope Santa brings me a new camera.   Here are my STORIES and PHOTOS

Rockaway Beach

(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 […]

(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 […]
