Goodbye to one of New York's greatest literary voices. A hard-boiled voice of the common man, eloquent bar room philosopher and poetic bard of the streets. The voice is silenced but, his words live on. Jimmy Breslin. The man. #JimmyBreslin #Repost @tigerwolfpictures

Amazing coincidence. I was reading Jimmy Breslin's great mobster book The Good Rat (one of my desert island books) when Breslin died on Sunday aged 88. #jimmybreslin #legend #journosjourno

Another good one gone 💔 RIP JIM #jimmybreslin #realnews

I hate this place, but then again...if I didn't hate it, I wouldn't love it the way I do! #BROOKLYN #coneyisland #jimmybreslin #yourcitysucks

True New Yorkers do not really seek information about the outside world. They feel that if anything is not in New York it is not likely to be interesting. #newyorkcity #washingtonheights #jimmybreslin #nativenewyorker #nuyorican #summerinthecity #concretejungle #myhometown #citylife #cityphotography #explorationgram #exloreyourcity #wanderer #gypsysoul #gettingtoknowmycity #whyilovenewyork #noplaceiratherbe #theadventuresofmisst

"Hayattaki herkes gibi, Mets de bir kaybeden. Bu, patronuyla birlikte öğle yemeği yemediği için terfi alamayanların ve her sabah uyanıp biraz para kazanabilmek için sevmediği bir işe giden sıradan erkeklerin takımı. Ya da evliliklerinin onuncu yılında bir akşam yemeğinde tişörtle gördüğü kocasına bakıp onunla evlenmeye nasıl ikna olduğunu düşünen kadınların takımı."

Who remembers 1969? Woodstock, man landing on the moon, and the year that Norman Mailer ran for Mayor of NYC (with Jimmy Breslin as his running mate for City Council president). The campaign failed, but some buttons remain. Ben, who works for the NYC government, is very pleased with his Mystery Spot purchase! (We have a ton of neat vintage buttons from the 60s which we hope to bring in soon). #politicalbuttons #politicalpins #normanmailer #jimmybreslin #nycpolitics #vintagenyc #vintagepinback #vintagebutton #politicalcampaign #campaignbuttons #vintageshop #vintage #antiqueshop #antiquing #thrifting #phoenicia #catskills #catskillsvintage #vintagecatskills #mysteryspotantiques #openthisweekend #NOWHIRING
