FOUND by Alicia at Zaytoons Hookah Bar on Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, New York City, New York
I started a job as a waitress at a hookah bar in Brooklyn and got stuck alone with the Valentine’s Day shift this week. The owner had recently fired the busboy so it was extra crazy for me– so many couples came in!! I think that’s why we only noticed this homemade Valentine under a table at the very end of my shift. The manager was about to toss the card but I asked to keep it. The giver (Murat I think) had clearly taken so much time to make it. I love the two pigeons on the cover, and the message on the back.
FOUND by Paul Markowicz in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York
I found this note today (Memorial Day, 2012) on the street walking back from a picnic in Prospect Park. It was laying face-up by itself and since I noticed it was a sizable handwritten note, my curiosity was piqued. When I started reading it, I figured it was a breakup note or an angry letter from a parent, but by the end assumed it was a cash gift to a once-spoiled child. The true story is still unclear.
This sign was taped to the railing for about a week at the Nostrand A/C subway stop. I was surprised that MTA employees didn’t take it down sooner. I guess that’s one way to hook-up. I really want to know if the poster got any calls!?!
