Whatever Williamsburg ever was, it's a white man, middle-aged, on Bedford Avenue, sitting on the curb, slobbering on an unlit cigar, in front of an Equinox, drunk, and leering, now.
He was lifted up and carried off by a woman, big shopping bag in hand, who came out of the Duane Reade, who I’d guess was his wife.

I wonder, when I see the machinery typically used by elderly folks curbside for pickup, that someone isn't utilizing it because they're no longer alive.

Two years ago, they shot Tony Hinton dead on this Patchen Avenue corner on a Friday afternoon. NYPD still has no idea who they is/are. NYPD mark the anniversary by pointing this out.
I don't know this man beyond his image on the sign.

Recent days of 90-plus degree heat probably make for ambient temperatures inside a deli lacking air conditioning that would melt any and all chocolate on their shelves. The cool safety of the meat and cheese display case would keep the bars solid, saleable.
I appreciate the consideration I see here. I do the same thing in my apartment.
