Little Bit Funky Broadway

November 23, 2010

Broadway at night retains a little funk along with some old-school (although not always old) neon. Together, neon and funk bite back against the relentless March of the Chains.

Lenny's Hot Bagels

Andrade’s Shoe Repair has a mini-empire (a chain?) with shoe repair stores on the east and west sides of Broadway. One gorgeous neon shoe heads south

While-U-Wait

while its companion on the other side of the avenue strolls north

Going my way?

Most blocks have at least one bodega-style shop, selling soda, magazines and lottery tickets

Caribbean colors

Hold on a second. Let’s take a closer look at that duck, shall we? After all, this is supposed to be a nature blog.

Really? You don't look sorry.

Diabolical.

And just yards away, an insane rodent presides over the east side of Broadway

They're coming to take me away ha ha ho ho

I’m grateful for the city’s remaining pockets of funkiness, even if today’s Broadway doesn’t measure up to Wicked Wilson Pickett’s funky, funky street of days gone by.
