This curiosity was found by a fellow Greenpoint resident we’ll call “S”. It presently resides under the Manhattan side of the Williamsburg(h) Bridge. About it she writes:

Double take: Giant flat black camper with window gates and fences chained on. The one of the door and window is worth a closer look…

Indeed it is.

Urban assault vehicle or Airbnb rental?

I am putting my money on both. Perhaps EVGrieve or Jeremiah can shed some light regarding this tenement on wheels? Anyone?

UPDATE: Someone was thoughtful enough to point out this looks like something from Escape From New York:

Great catch, John! The funny thing is this vehicle has New York state plates. However, I have spied and shot graffiti featuring Snake Plissken along the north Brooklyn waterfront. This one hails from Greenpoint.

SNAKE!

And this one hails from the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg Bridge:

Maybe they’re trying to escape from Brooklyn? Hmm…
