(Snapshot of The Newtown Pentacle) The Newtown Pentacle is a really cool blog that you must check out and bookmark. At first glance it may seem to be just another photo blog, but it’s much more than that thanks to some pretty insightful and informative, if not downright funny commentary by the proprietor, Mitch Waxman.

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 […]

(Calvary Cemetery – Photo by Joe) We were at a cemetery late one evening last week and Benny, “the cigar store Indian,” had stopped to talk with an old woman whose name was Margaret. She was at the grave site of her husband and son. She said her son Robert, dead over twenty-five years, was a vampire. Now I’ve seen many odd creatures […]

(Snapshot of the Williamsburg Greenpoint News + Arts’ website) Two of my favorite towns in Brooklyn are Williamsburg and Greenpoint. It’s great that I can go to a single source to read about them. I especially like their reporting on the Arts, because the community is filled with hipsters of all types trying to stretch their […]

(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. […]

When I went inside and all they had for sale was bread, no […]

(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.

(Photos by Bald Punk – Click twice to full enlarge) A couple of weeks ago when I posted the Greenpoint pictures, I didn’t get a good one of St Anthony’s. Scaffolding from the building across the street cut into the pic. Yesterday I took a few more. These are much better, but I’m still not satisfied. Next time . […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – click twice to fully enlarge) This post will have loads of photos. I won’t finish today. I’m going to the Stadium for the first time this year to see the Yanks play. 🙂 My grandparents lived on Dupont Street for over 50 years. — Update: I’m finished posting pictures of Greenpoint. […]
