Bartender’s Skills with a Manhatten returns with more lovely wrecks from the US.
BSWAM says, “Today we’ll be visiting the neighboring communities of Fleischmann and Pine Bush, old resort towns in the high county of the Catskills, which border the upper Hudson River to the west and are largely a state park. Pictured here is Wagner Avenue in Fleischmann, which is noted for its spectacular collection of “Eastlake” Victorian architecture.
Of course, some are in better shape than others.
I don’t know what’s the funniest thing about this house – the bars on the windows, the attempt to make a hedge out of chain link and Christmas garland or the largish fine slapped to the gate. (A true worst, TLA)
Down the valley a pace, Lady Liberty welcomes you to the slightly more bohemian village of Pine Bush! The hotel is a former wreck currently being fixed up by crazy people.
This French Second Empire cottage looks cute…until you begin noticing certain details.
This house was never cute. And I’m not quite sure what the message is. Other than I don’t think it’s any possible variant of “Happy Birthday”.
It’s a little known fact that Pennywise the Clown used to drive a Good Humor truck. (Although some may know Pennywise BSWAM, we don’t do Good Humor trucks. Especially without the “O” in humour. We Mr. Whippy only.)
Thanks again BSWAM for some enlightening rubbing our faces in rotting HRV grandeur and folly.
