Bushwick Gentrification Watch: Courtesy Counts

Lest today’s content has not made it clear today I decided to take a trip “down south”. It has been awhile since I have had the time to knock around East Williamsburg and Bushwick. This is a shame, as I invariably find something interesting. This afternoon was no exception.
It was on Grattan Street that this cheerfully painted bathtub (pressed into service as a planter) caught my eye.
Upon closer inspection I discovered it was part of a larger al fresco living room suite.
The throw pillow is a nice touch, if I may say so myself. I am certain you have undoubtedly noticed (as I did) that the above-depicted street furniture clearly states it is not to be removed. Well, a sign affixed to a nearby chair sheds some light on this.
I cannot agree more. The “new” north Brooklyn is no place for such language. Get some fucking manners. Some of us have kids!
