September 21, 2008: Brooklyn

Brooklyn... need I say New York?
I know there are other places called Brooklyn, but none compare with THE Brooklyn.

Anyway, the face of Brooklyn is changing and the Brooklyn Historical Society is mounting an exhibition of photographs by James and Karla Murray.
They wanted to show the way it was/is, before it's gone entirely.
They're not glitzy, in fact not even pretty anymore... they are close to death.






Notice the rope block & tackle on the left.

Does it worry anyone that the kosher meats and poultr(y) place is right next door to the furrier?

I like that Katy's Candy Store sells cigars, cigarettes, and school supplies. Nothing like a pack of camel's to get that first day of school started right!

It's not, they're two of six separate pictures.

Katy's Candy Store looks JUST LIKE one of the places I used to buy, uh, party supplies. Yeah, that's the ticket...party supplies.

Of course, just because it's a separate picture, doesn't mean they're not next door. Mmmm. Kosher ermine.

A superman reference came up in a comic strip recently. It caused me to ask my daughters (16 & 15).

Neither one remembers ever seeing a phone booth.

They made reference to it in Superman IV. Christopher Reeves stops and gives a baleful glance to the more modern style of payphone stand before ducking into a store to change into his Superman clothes.

I always wondered if he left his Clark Kent clothes in the phone booth?

We call such shops newsagents. They can be found on every housing estate and on smaller High Streets (large High Streets have chain stores that sell much more besides). Their business is primarily newspapers and magazines, but of course they supplement this with sweets (candy) ice cream, cold drinks and stationery. You will not find a shop, kiosk or hole-in-the-wall store that sells papers and not cigarettes - only street vendors.
