(South Street across from The Paris Cafe – Photos by Joe) “Where your treasure is, there will your heart also be.”                       Luke 12:34   – Believe me, I don’t give away all of NYC’s secrets. Especially those associated with that block of small brick buildings on South St. between Beekman St. and Peck Slip. At one end are vacant […]

Milk Toast

(Wavertree sailing ship/South Street Seaport, NYC – Photos by Joe) At South Street Seaport to meet my friends, I was aware a tall white guy had tailed me since I came out of the Fulton Street subway station that was a four block walk. Just to be certain, I moved away from the sparse, early evening crowd […]

(My work truck out front a Brooklyn jobsite – Photo by Joe) On the subway back to Manhattan I sat with a vacant expression. I was dog tired from a long day at a thankless job. I do demolition, which is miserable work. It’s especially bad when you have to gut the interior of an old walk-up, where […]

To Kill A Vampire

(View from South Street Seaport Mall, 3rd floor – Photos by Joe) Twenty minutes had passed since I sat down with a decent cup of Joe and turned on my laptop. I was outside on the third floor deck of the South Street Seaport Mall. Just upriver was the much marveled Brooklyn Bridge. Not far […]

(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 […]

(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 […]

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 […]

Best Bar No One ‘ANYWHERE’ Knows About

(Photos by Bald Punk – Murphs in South Street Seaport Mall) I hope I don’t need to explain this one. Though I will–in pictures. Btw, if you’re looking for a singles-type bar, there are a few in the Seaport Mall that might appeal to you. Otherwise, Murhs is great for chillin’ big-time. And you can’t go wrong at […]
