Bklink: More Pete McGuinness (Boulevard) History

Miss Heather is still recovering from her interrogation by the NYPD for daring to take Santa pictures, but has posted a further installment in the compelling tale of Pete McGuinness, the Brooklynite after whom the fabulous boulevard is named. "After being ousted as Alderman, our very own Peter J. McGuinness set his sights on becoming the Sheriff of Kings County. Just as the catch phrase “Courtesy Professionalism and Respect” is a mere formality to our police force, Pete felt waiting to be elected before calling himself Sheriff was a mere technicality. He was also quite the gourmand, as you will learn from the article from the August 8, 1935 edition of the New York Times. Enjoy!" Read all about it.--New York Shitty
