Bacon Ranch Pizza

Like all good Americans, we enjoy both strips of bacon and ranch dressing more than we should, because that’s what being an American is all about.  Merica!   We also love pizza too and we are thankful that someone has figured out how to combine all three into a delicious slice of heart attack at Pronto Pizza in Croton-on-Hudson.

Though it is far from being the world’s best tasting pizza (which is in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where the intelligent and refined Italians moved to), it is still quite yummy.

Math Face Geek Graffiti

We’ve been seeing this face graffiti literally all over Brooklyn.  This particular piece is on 39th Street and 13th Avenue in Boro Park.

We don’t “get it” and wouldn’t be surprised if it was a drug possession claim or something of the like, but we like to think of this annoying graffiti as the geekiest piece of graffiti imaginable…  What with the double circles and a septagon creating the rough image of a face.

World’s Largest Icicle

This week’s polar vortex (cough:cough lame ass name for a cold front) reminded us about the last lingering polar vortex we experienced, where we were privy to this giant ice formation on the platform of the F/G train at 4th Avenue-9th Street.  The multi-million dollar facelift that the station is receiving hasn’t had good luck fixing the leaky pipes at the southern end of the platform, because the world’s largest icicle sprouted up there over the course of several days.

And then it all came to an end with temperatures reaching the 40s and 50s.

Best Mailboxes In America

We did it, we found the two best United States mailboxes in all the land.  Look at these beautiful, the most beautiful, mailboxes in all the land that sit at the corner of Remsen Street and Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights.

We never knew that U.S. Mail relay boxes could be anything but green.  Mind = blown!

Downtown Brooklyn Construction

While serving our civic duty of sitting in a room full of strangers for jury duty, our view was of the latest construction rumblings going on in downtown Brooklyn.

We can’t wait for the sun to be blocked even more so, all in the name of progress.
