“Is this your store?”
It was an email with photo from my friend Priya. Priya is looking for a new apartment in Brooklyn and one of apartments she looked at was decorated with a poster from Down Front, our ice cream store on Peaks Island.
I offer this as further evidence that Peaks Island is some sort of vortex, black hole or other type of science fiction-like location. Considering we only have 800 year-round residents—and not a single traffic light—it’s amazing how often I meet new people and it turns out they’ve been here.
The poster hangs in the bathroom, but they framed it nicely—so I’m ignoring its proximity to the toilet and taking the poster’s presence as a compliment.
By the way, the poster was designed by Peaks Island resident Marty Braun.
