Here’s a little something for you long-time Sheepshead Bites readers: You haven’t heard from us shopping carts for a while, but we’re still here, being used and abused, abandoned and tossed out.

Just in time for Halloween, a dead shopping cart rises from the dead. [Cue scary voice and creaky floorboards.] Yes, it’s me…Mwahahahaahhaha!!! You will remember me, pictured here, here, and here (is that me all cut up into a jigsaw?). Bet you thought I was dead. Well, you would be right. I was dead, and…

Roaming the streets of Sheepshead Bay all day with these bags of cans sure can be tiring. I guess it’s not as bad as some have it. At least I have some shelter (the Belt Parkway overpass at Ocean Avenue) and a place to rest my head at night or day or whenever the mood…

I’m the lovely red shopping cart just kidnapped from the Staples Office Super Store on the corner of Avenue Y and Ocean Avenue. But, who’s going to be looking for or at me in this post? Someone stuck this cutie pie baby into me and rolled us over to the brand new P.S. 254 playground.…

Back in 2008, we wrote about the Covenant Ballet Theatre of Brooklyn, Inc (CBTB) and its move out of its long-time Sheepshead Bay residence, into to a new Midwood home. Since then, the dance school has been developing even more programs as a non-profit organization, and offers special scholarships for promising young dancers.
