What had once started out as a rather ambitious (if by East Williamsburg standards) condominium building at 390 Lorimer Street appears to have fallen on hard times.

Very hard times. Among the niceties to be found here (and I do encourage each and every one of you to check this place out) are:

1. an incinerated cushion of some kind

2. a television set with “added value”

3. an open invitation for squatters

As a matter of fact, 390 Lorimer already has some residents. Pigeons have nested in this duct work. I would hazard to guess this may very well the most expensive aviary in New York City history. And to think some people have the temerity to think our fair Mayor doesn’t care about nature— who needs 1,000,000 trees when our feathered friends can have a luxury condo? Only the best for north Brooklyn!

I could go on and on about quality of life issues and how this administration has failed its constituents. I won’t. Instead I’ll leave you with this epitaph which someone has seen fit to thoughtfully inscribe on this failed piece of real estate speculation.

LAST GASP: Got Rats?

If so, someone would very much like to talk to you. “Associate Producer” writes:

I’m not sure whether or not this would be the kind of thing (it most assuredly is— Ed. Note) that would be of interest to you or your readers, but it’s certainly a city-wide issue, so I wonder if you can help.

I’m part of a team producing a new documentary series on the city’s by-now colossal rat population – outnumbering humans in NY 12-to-1 by some estimates.  We’re going to be following a team of exterminators as they set about ridding a range of homes and businesses throughout the 5 boroughs of rat infestations…

We’re keen to hear from anyone who is suffering from this menace.


Here’s the dealio: if you want to share your Rattus norvegicus experiences (or simply want to learn more about this project) you should shoot an email to:  sciencetvshow (at) gmail (dot) com

Not only is your confidentiality ensured, but they’ll set you up with an accredited local pest control company that will tackle your rat problem FOR FREE. Yes, I just wrote F-R-E-E!

Get cracking Greenburgers, Bushwickers and Long Island Cityslickers!
