No, this tree stand is not a part of CVS. I know they branch out into different types of decorations during the holidays, but they haven’t branched out into trees.
Through the Miss Brooklyn Scholarship Program, young women are provided with the opportunity to achieve their educational aspirations through scholarship awards—a tradition first established by the Miss America scholarship fund. Carmen Mendoza (Miss Kings County– another title crowned that day) is the young lady in the orange salsa outfit. The young lady in the ballet costume is Lauren Molella (Dutchess County’s Outstanding Teen). The picture of the two queens together is shorter one, Christina Moore, Miss Brooklyn 2011, and taller one Mallory Hagan, Miss Brooklyn 2010. The African American young lady is Brittney Hollingsworth, Brooklyn’s Outstanding Teen. For more information about the Miss Brooklyn Scholarship Organization, visit www.MissBrooklyn.org

The New York Aquarium is one of the largest landowners on the Boardwalk, in terms of length of property along the Boardwalk. So when are they going to start contributing to the redevelopment of Coney Island instead of its blight? Their Boardwalk fence separates this seaside aquarium from a seaside vista. And it’s fug. At least they’ve tried to ready it up a bit closer to their entrance with relief sculptures and fingerpaint-inspired graffiti. The further away you get from the Aquarium entrance, though…
This section has all of the charm of the West Bank security fence.
Unless you work at the Sanitation depot, chances are you don’t get to see this side of the Sunset Park waterfront very often. Photo credit: Brian Hedden
