Now that I have sent at least one copy of my resume to every employer/scam artist/craigslist groupie, I finally have some free time to blog! Luckily, you didn’t miss out on a whole lot.
Flatbush has been a ghost town this past week thanks to the scorching temperatures. I quickly realized that as soon as temps hit 90 degrees, daily life in Flatbush comes to a screeching hault……
Local performers and hooligans flee their stage at Prospect Park…..
Garbage-men claim “it’s too hot” for trash pick-up…..
Car-owners can’t bear the heat long enough to finish painting their cars….
Fruitsellers abandon bags of questionable-looking canteloupes on the sidewalk……
EVEN the Trinidad sno-cone man, a fixture on the Flatbush street-vendor scene, has disappeared. He was unavailable for comments and/or photos but I’ll keep the updates coming.
As you can see, it’s a sad time in Flatbush. Luckily, there is supposed to be a bumpin’ hip-hop concert in the park this Saturday. It features Lyricist Lounge, Raekwon, Smif-n-Wessun and Joel Ortiz. I know none of them. Regardless, I am sure it will be quite an entertaining evening and the neighborhood will be in rare form. Wish me luck.
