It might be art, or could it be a publicity stunt? This sign, which was screwed to an existing signpost at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Ninth Street, says (I think), “My least favorite actor – Russell King.” I have no idea who that is, and Google comes up empty, too.
Budweiser and Corona are soon to be owned by the same company. Does anyone in Mexico drink Bud now? What does this mean for the Clydesdales?
Smiling Pizza is in a good spot – there are not many pizza places left AND they are on a good corner. Plus, Smiling Pizza makes a tolerable slice and it won’t set you back too much.
Sigh… it wouldn’t be the same with an electronic book. When you see someone reading an ebook, you can’t gauge their involvement, whether they just started, are in the middle, or if they are racing to finish the last few pages.

Don’t forget that Fourth Ave. dead-ends at the love-it-or-hate-it building of Brooklyn, the Barclays Center. We’ll see what happens.

It’s Good Friday, so more people are out on the sidewalk than usual in lovely Park Slope. The moody teen, woman with a dog, and striped shirt with meathook could be anywhere. But unless you know the Smiling Pizza corner, you might need a key: there’s a police van parked across from the ice cream shop (blue awning) and stationer. The nearby crepe store has good coffee, because this is neighborhood that knows and cares about caffeine.
