Brooklyn, New York
This iReport is part of an assignment:
Tell us the Good Stuff!
A slice of Americana..Brooklyn, Ave. Z..
Also Rico owns Rico's Custom Auto body shop on Hart place with his father and they restore old cars (see the Edsel). I did a previous report about him, called "Classics! Brooklyn strong." Because he is kind of a classic young guy.
He also makes the Mermaid Float for the annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade in June and is presently in the process of restoring and decorating an old farm tractor to carry the mermaids.
I love his house and property because it is not something you usually see in busy urban Brooklyn. It is a refreshing slice of Americana and more like going to the country.
He told me he would like to buy the whole block, one day, and treat everyone with respect. I know he will and I hope he does!
The next to last photo is his neighbor next door who has a big oil painting of an American flag on the fence that is kept up all year. It's in the right place.
