I don't know anything about Teddy other than the fact that he's no longer with us. He apparently was either a dumbass thieving coward or quite a ladies' man, depending on whom you ask.
Also no longer with us is this strip club that sits in the shadow of the LIE. More than likely, the recession hurt it and the Borden Avenue Bridge reconstruction put the final nail in its coffin.
But as I stood here, I found it rather appropriate that Greenpoint's Shit Tits were highly visible from the site of the former titty bar. These photos were taken New Year's Day in lands where Tower People fear to tread.
