who like to read


Jason Fry and Greg Prince
Faith and Fear in Flushing made its debut on Feb. 16, 2005, the brainchild of two longtime friends and lifelong Met fans.

Greg Prince discovered the Mets when he was 6, during the magical summer of 1969. He is a Long Island-based writer, editor and communications consultant. Contact him here.

Jason Fry is a Brooklyn writer whose first memories include his mom leaping up and down cheering for Rusty Staub. Check out his other writing here.

Shadowy Figures Lost & Found

Charlie Hangley, one of the readers who makes our Faith and Fear community such a nice place to live, recently cruised to Curacao to have a word with Andruw Jones, resplendent (if a bit shadowy) in 37, 14, 41 and 42. Buy a Faith and Fear t-shirt and see the world…or just sit around the house. What you do when you wear it is up to you.

But be prepared to answer questions and deflect misconceptions if you’re far from where Shea used to stand.

“We were walking to the beach,” CharlieH says of his and SarahH’s trip south with the shirt, “and the woman behind me said, ‘Faith and Fear in FLUSHING??? What is that?’ So I told her and she said, ‘Oh. I thought it had something to do with the Plumbers Union or something.’ And at least three people I know thought the numbers were from Lost.”

    Last summer, when the fourth person on Canal Street asked me if they were my lucky numbers, I stopped trying to explain and just said “yes”. They are, aren't they?”

    Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men…?
    Actually, in this shot, I'm looking more like Alfred Hitchcock than anyone.
