The $5 Slice at Di Fara’s Pizza

January 14, 2010 by  
Filed under Everything Else, Video

I’ve must have had a thousand slices of pizza in my life(probably a lot more), and sampled from all five boroughs of NYC. I like a thin slice that’s crispy, but not burnt. It must have real cheese, but it doesn’t have to be “fresh” mozzarella. I’m an aficionado of plain red sauce, and always give it a mental grade. […]

Ralph Demarco Park in Astoria

(Photos by Bald Punk – Ralph Demarco Park) In the background of a few photos you can see the Hell Gate Bridge. It’s also the name of a short straight right below the bridge. “Hell Gate” comes from the Dutch phrase, “Hellegat.” Along with “Sound River,” it was one of the original names for the East River. Those facts I didn’t look up […]

Silvercup Studios in Long Island City

(Photos by Bald Punk – Silvercup Studios in Long Island City, Queens) Silvercup Studious used to be a bakery before it was turned into a film and movie studio. They shoot Ugly Betty, 30 Rock, and Gossip Girl there. My mom said she can remember being in the subway car when it pulled into Long Island City. She said […]

Various NYC Photos

(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 […]

NYC Neighborhood Maps

I like maps. I could open a USA Atlas and page through and lose myself. But that’s besides the point. There are a bunch of sections of the city I want to get to, and put up these maps so I can set some mental reminders. Plus I like looking at them. Bronx Manhattan Staten […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
