Dear Miss Heather,
I hope that you are well and had a nice Thanksgiving. We are having our 2nd annual holiday window display competition next Saturday, December 14th from 1 to 4 pm. We hope you will mention it on your blog. If not, we totally understand.
We have asked high school art students to design holiday windows for 12 of our businesses and inviting the community to vote for their favorite.
To entice people to come to Grand Street we also have Santa walking around, free face painting and scavenger hunt for kids. We are also raffling off a $100 gift card for those who vote.
Below please find a little write up. I have attached our postcard for you, and this link to our website’s photo gallery shows a few samples from last year. We are very excited and cannot wait:
Due to last year’s successful event, the Grand Street BID has organized its 2nd annual window display competition. This year four schools—the Green School, The High School for Enterprise, Business and Technology, Progress High School, and the High School for Architecture and Design—are designing holiday windows for 12 businesses on Grand Street between Lorimer and Humboldt Streets in East Williamsburg.
The students will install the designs on Friday, December 13th, a day before the competition; and on Saturday, December 14th the community is invited to vote for their favorite window and be entered to win $100. The winning design students will also win a gift certificate to a local art store.
There will be free face painting at Café Chillo: 702 Grand Street; kids’ scavenger hunt and Santa on Grand Street as well as lots of specials and discounts.
The event this year is bigger than last, which had two schools and eight windows.
The goal is to promote our businesses by involving the community and showcasing students’ talents.
Thank you so much for your consideration, and I hope to see you on Grand Street.
Gladly posted— and thanks Artineh!

As discovered by my buddy Larry while pounding around Newtown Creek today. Perhaps we should hook her up with the Greenpoint Avenue teddy?
A good buddy of mine put it best:
If there’s one place to dock a party boat, it is Newtown Creek.
I wonder if the operators of this, um, facility paid taxes on the revenue from this “hotel”? In any case, you can read this tome by clicking here.
Per the fellows responsible for this bit of chicanery (which can be found on Lorimer Street between Meserole Street and Montrose Avenue) they have actually caught folks trying to use it. Somehow I do not have a hard time believing this.
house manor on Maujer Street is any indication, quite a lot. That settles it: moving forward Chez Shitty will henceforth be known as the Ponderosa…
