Because, as we all know, making light of the homeless situation on New York City (without actually being forced to witness it firsthand) is what tourists want to experience…

Same zip code, (more or less) same premise: no dumping. As you can see, gentle readers, asking nicely seems to work better than signage and surveillance. On an eerily related note I am proud to share my two most recently completed snow globes. Meet “Detente” versions two and three!
In progress. Surveillance cameras + exhibitionists = a match made in heaven. The yellow sign reads “SMILE, You’re looking great!”
Given what I saw— and smelled*— on Courtlandt Alley today:
- Credence is given to the argument that surveillance cameras do not make people more safe. They are not a deterrent against crime and/or other activities generally frowned upon by “polite society”. All they do is record it. They’re only as good as the person watching them. I can only imagine what the person “manning” the CCTV on Courtlandt saw.
- Methinks “Detente” version six needs to happen. (Yes, I already have two more versions on “the list”.)
Anyone interested in acquiring any of these objets de arte (once again) can/should shoot me an email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Be sure to note which one piques your interest. Happy Friday!
