Photo Wednesday : 03/30/11 : Dressing Up & Dressing Down in the Hood


The tiles of the new Chavela's on Franklin Ave in Crown Heights.

I was passing by one night last week and noticed a handsome crowd galavanting inside, as I approached with a small bag of groceries, a regular dude was entering and let me in. I looked around 180 degrees and connected eyes again with the regular guy who then informed me, "they're not open" he apologized as I walked out.

Chavela's isn't the only new biz dolling up:
pawn pennant 1

pawn pennant2

pawn pennant 3

Ah yes these flags were needed because an (actually) underground pawn shop is not tacky enough. Is this legal?
