Hello Gents,

I am returning to wet shaving after 15 years of using multi-blade razors. Prior to that I was shaving with DE for ten years and now I am exited to be back Aaaaa. I found this forum after reading LeisureGuy book (online links).

Hello and welcome to The Shave Nook. I was born and reared in Brooklyn (Sheepshead Bay) and just recently had the opportunity to see the old neighborhood again.

Welcome to TSN!

Hey! I use razors that were made in Brooklyn! Way before your time though. Way before my time too.

Hi Freddy,

I live on Sheepshead Bay, it is very nice place to live, however, neighborhood is changing.

Hi Freddy,

Oh yes, it is a very different place today. It was home for me from 1945 to 1968 and much of the way of life I remember no longer exists. I lived on Avenue U between E. 23rd and E. 24th Streets. What was then a Jewish, Italian, and Irish neighborhood is now mostly Chinese. My elementary school (P.S. 206) and high school (Sheepshead Bay) look as I remembered them and Sheepshead Bay itself is still lovely. Do the fishing boats still sell fresh caught fish in the afternoons as they did when I lived there?

No, there is no fresh fish sold there anymore, newly build condos residents voted against it. However, there are a lot of boats still offer fishing services for those who enjoy it. Emmons Ave. is very nice area to spend time (and money in nice restaurants).

For me, the saddest thing to happen to Sheepshead Bay was the original closing of Lundy's restaurant. It was the largest restaurant under one roof in the world and it was there that I first gained an appreciation for fresh seafood.

I suppose with the condo buildings there now, I can see the residents not wanting the selling of fresh fish from the boats done practically on their doorsteps. However, that was one of the great charms of the area.
