PICTURE GALLERY: New York City Metal & Punk Tour - Day 2, Brooklyn (Biohazard territory)

I headed out this day to Brooklyn to the place in the Biohazard video-clip for "Five Blocks to the Subway", the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Nostrand Avenue. It will cost you USD50.00 if you take a cab from Manhattan. Better use the subway, it's just five blocks away, you can do that any day! It's nice out here: you can see the sky and people all walk like hip-hop gangsters.
This is definitely the subway entrance in the video-clip where you see the band greet a busking guitar player and then later a guy rides his bike straight down the stairs here. Just Google: "Biohazard Five Blocks to the Subway official video-clip".
This is a bit further down Flatbush Avenue, around 250 metres away. The band walks from left to right along this sidewalk and then turns right here into Flatbush Avenue (the main road on RHS in picture). You can tell it's the correct place because those blocks of flats have a unique shape.
Flatbush Avenue from the other side of the road with the blocks of flats in the middle-distance.
From here we can see the subway entrance on Flatbush Avenue just to the right side of the blue Rite Aid sign.
This is back in Flatbush Avenue near the subway entrance. You can see the guy in the white jumper asking for money. We started talking and then we had lunch together at the Subways. He hadn't even heard of Biohazard.
When I was in New York City I wanted to honour New York City bands and hence my Anthrax shirt.
Back in Manhattan I met this guy Michael promoting a gym on Park Avenue between 33rd and 34th Streets. He told me had recently been to see the Big 4 at Shea Stadium with his young nephew adding that it was a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity".
