Rosemary's Baby

by brokenrecordbaby

Every Monday people gather at Bryant Park, which is right by Times Square, to watch a free movie on a huge screen, eat food and booze.

This Monday they showed Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby which plays in Manhattan so that was pretty goooooood. What was really weird is that before the movie started loads of people stood up and I just thought: “People are actually gunna sing the national anthem before the start of a movie?” But no…people got up and cheered when HBO’s, who’s the sponsor of the night, symbol showed up on screen….which might even be a bit weirder

But yeah it was amazing to watch an old movie in a huge crowd surrounded by billowing scrapers. The crowd also got so into it…like when Rosemary spat in her husband’s face (he let her be raped by the devil so he kinda had it coming) everyone whistled and cheered. so yeah that was the start of our monday night….

Sunday night

by brokenrecordbaby

after walking around the city we headed into williamsburg, brooklyn. i showed char my crib real quick and then we headed to bedford avenue where we met up with sabina and katy. they both study in london. katy is british, sabina is swedish, has lived in tokyo, south of france and some other places. they are both awesome. so yeah bedford avenue if you are gunna compare it, it would be with east london. the street is full of bars, restaurants, cafes, bars, shops. real nice vibe and as it was a sunday it was buzzin with people.

my favourite guy there was a window washer. he was inside a bagel shop squidging the shit outta those windows when he felt the need to step out onto the street to comment on a passing by couple:

“Hey Hey! You guys are a real attractive couple!”


“Yeah but you know what that means…you guys are gunna have real ugly kids. Two beautiful people make for some ugly kids.”

“Don’t say that!”

The window washer then stepped back into the store and, again, gave his attention to the windows. So good.

we then met up with the frenchies nebil, axelle and raphael and went to the tea house. real cute place. really dimly lit with old equastrian style wall paper and a bar full of jar after jar after jar of fresh tea. that might be where it got its name from? the food was preeeeetty all right.

there was spaghetti there somehwere...tiny ass portion. like excuuuse me im in america. i want some super size me dimensions
