There's an old wooden house on 68th Street, between 3rd and Ridge. Its on the north side of the street, closer to Ridge. Or it was. Don't see it anymore, and there is a large wood fence around it with a sign for a demolition company.
It did not look as though it was in great repair. I only took notice of it over the past years, when I was parking my car down there. There would often be some old guys hanging out on the porch. This old house will probably be replaced by an anonymous grey brick townhouse whatever.

Loews Bay Ridge
This was a movie theater from the 1920s up till the 1950s or 1960s. I remember the marquee of the closed theater in the 1960s. The top two floors are used by New York Sports Clubs Health Club. For some additional information on this theater's history see Cinema Treasures --and be sure to scroll down to see the comments.

The Bay Ridge Paper has a story this week stating that the Army Corps of Engineers is concerned about the deterioration of the bike path, saying that if it is left unaddressed, it could easily affect the Belt Parkway.

This florist had been in business at 7012 Third Avenue for decades. But the owners have retired. There was a sign in the window thanking their customers for their support, but I guess the real estate guys took it down.

Remove the image of the highway, and this could be northern California. But its off Shore Road, maybe 88th St, near the end of a perfect Sunday. And a setting sun makes everything look great.

But the bike path has lots of potholes now. This is in a section near 79th Street that is fenced off for the protection of cyclists and pedestrians. How would you like to ride into one of these potholes at night?
