The search for shops.

Yesterday I decided I would try to find a grocer somewhere in the vicinity of 756 Myrtle to begin frequenting. I picked a store randomly and went in and bought a few items for the next morning. I’m not certain, but from what I can tell it seems that most places around are cash only. I rarely carry around cash, so I had to use their ATM. This was fine, because I needed cash for dinner anyway. I’ll probably try a few more before I find one to stick to.

I decided to try Crown Fried Chicken on the block which I felt was a good decision. I got 10 chicken strips for $1.85 and certainly felt it was money well spent. What they call a chicken strip is what Burger King calls a chicken fry, but I distinctly remember being disappointed when I first tried chicken fries at a BK in Albuquerque. I was not disappointed with this purchase. Perhaps it’s because you get them for about 19 cents each? I find them tasty, but that’s probably because they’re loaded with trans fat and/or MSG. Those are normally the reasons.

The G Report: Entered Myrtle-Willoughby at 11:49, arrived at transfer 8 minutes later. So far I have found the G to be very consistent.

    thank you for sharing your new experience in Bed-Stuy. My girlfriend and I are also looking to move into that neighborhood. since you live in the MYNT, have you eheard anything about the retail spaces on the ground floor of your building? Have they leased them to some chain stores like Wholefood or Duane Reade?
    Thanks! Keep up the nice work!
