Going out to Queens

This is the first and absolute time I’m going to do this, I’ve decided. The family member of a murder victim asked me to attend a meeting with the detective working on the case and I agreed. It’s not that I don’t like to help, I do, but so often it ends up being a no win situation for all involved.

I took this picture of the inside of an old subway car in Red Hook, Brooklyn. I was going to say abandoned, but that’s not quite correct. It was abandoned initially, but now it remains on purpose. It could be hauled away but people like it there.

  1. Red Hook is in Brooklyn? Is there one in NJ too? I just watched an old Dick Van Dyke show, where he got hit on the head and ended up in Red Hook. Did they make up the NJ part?

    Oh, and speaking of DVD, I read that the cast used to refer to him, probably not in his presence, as Penis Van Lesbian. In 1962 or so!!
