Saturday Brighton Beach blogging

I took a trip to Brighton Beach, Brooklyn's "Little Odessa" today. Here are the pictures.



What's that say? Help me NTodd!



Signs of the times.



There were hundreds of these fur bearing babushkas running around.



They will handle all your advertizing needz.



Ntodd?



Here's the beef. A new art installation by Andy Warholski.



The "accordion guy" who plays Russian music for spare change.



Wideos.



Brighton Beach boardwalk, looking towards Coney Island. Parachute jump in the distance.



Looking up at the Q train in motion.



Once I learn to focus, I will be pronounced the greatest photographer of our time.

Isn't Brighton Beach bigger than Odessa? Wouldn't that make it big little Odessa?

My word verification is FONGGS. That ROCKS.

"Mosvideofilm.

Films.

Books.

Music."

Top is the name of a company that imports Russian entertainment products. Not sure, but the name appears to be a typical Sovietism: Moscow Video Film (like Коммунистический союз молодёжи aka Kommunisticheski Soyuz Molodiozhi aka Communist Union of Youth).

The yellow sign says, "Re-recording on any system of the world: $10/hour on DVD, $5/hour on video." Then it says "On the 2nd floor, a huge selection of mysteries and romances - $1.75; films from $2, audiocassettes from .50, cds from $1.50, children's books from .75, and many other books at fabulously low prices; a big selection of toys. Could only be cheaper if it was free!"
