"There used to be a pub next to a deli owned by a retired NYPD cop(?) on Dyckman Street, between Broadway and Seaman Avenue."
Okay, that's it!!!!! I'm not saying nothin bout nothin now!!!!!! I have a propensity for being somewhat verbose. Often times, that leads to providing too much information with my BIG MOUTH. You're starting to scare me.
If I was inclined, I might spew something cryptic/esoteric that only you might understand. However, the brewskies haven't dulled my senses yet, so I will refrain. Instead, I'll allow you, if you choose to do so, to continue blowing my mind with your remembrances of Dyckman Street (I'm crying happy tears right now).
