BREAKING: Rite Aid Car Crash

Straight from Gogo Gowanus's cell phone comes a blurry pic that indicates that the Rite Aid on 5th Avenue and 10th is providing our nabe with a new, much needed parking spot: IN THEIR FRONT FUCKING WINDOW.

Oopsie.

UPDATE: Fips reader Sarah had a better pic and some scoop: A big crowd was there and the store was roped off with police tape. Lots of people taking photos, lots of police trying to get folks to steer clear of the accident site. Not sure yet what exactly happened, but the front left side of the car is smashed in so maybe some other car ran into it first and made the driver lose control?

Who Gives A Shit: Ghost Stroller?

photo: @aboutmattlawOk, so there are ghost bikes to commemorate the spots where unlucky bikers sadly lost their lives, and now there is a ghost stroller on the corner of Union and 6th ave to commemorate?? Uhm?

Anyone??

I'm guessing this is some smart assed hipster artist who found a stroller on the street, spraypainted it white and is now commenting on the "death of the neighborhood."

What's your theory?? Anyone have scoop??

Ode To The Fresh Squeezed OJ At La Bagel Delight

I drank it too quickly to take a real pic...oopsOk, so yes there are spots in Park Slope that *might* have better bagels, and yes the store was clearly laid out by an evil, blind, anti feng shui advocate, but I will fight ANY motherfucker to the death over defending the honor of this fact: La Bagel Delight has the most amazing, other-worldly, resplendent fresh squeezed OJ that has e-v-e-r crossed my motherfuckin lips.

This stuff is like the blow-job of beverages. And this is coming from someone who used to reside in Florida...THE SUNSHINE STATE. The place where almost all oranges come from.

I'm not even really normally an OJ person at all. Like I'll never buy it at the supermarket, and I never order it at a restaurant, but I swear to gawd: I almost committed suicide last weekend when I hopped over to La Bagel on Sat morn and I ordered my juice and they were like "sorry, we don't have any today."

I may have actually started weeping at the counter.

And that's why yesterday, I was sooooo excited to, yet again, be reunited with my OJ and it feels so good, I forgot to take a pic before I drank it all.

Oopsie.

So have you tried this shit?? Can I get a holla??

Where, Oh Where, Are Park Slope's Buff Do-Gooders?

Hey, we want in on this action!  We've got the autistic kids but not the hotty models? Yes, per Gothamist, 150 of the city's finest are paddling around Manhattan to benefit eight different autism organizations. Haul your cupcake-bedazzled bellies and big butts over to the promenade NOW for a gander.
