Courtlandt Alley, 10013
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!
From Canal Street.

A fellow named Mark writes (regarding the above image, which I posted October 2nd):
Hey,So I was clicking through my tumblr the other day and discovered a picture someone took of one of my pieces has 7k notes on Tumblr. Kinda shocked about that, but its cool there’s that much interest in a piece.This photo (You May Paint Over Me But I Will Still Be Here) you took is my street art:Proof:Any chance you’d be willing to credit me on that page with my name, help a brother get more of his art out into the universe?Would be much appreciated.
Straight up: as many of you, gentle readers, are quite aware I get a mite bit angry when folks (“journalists” mostly) take credit for my work. Therefore it is only right that I give Mr. Samsonovich credit for his work. What’s more, I fancied quite a few of his pieces. Take a moment and give ‘em a looksee— and thanks for contacting me, Matt!

Yes, gentle readers, it would appear our fair burgh— or at least
Allen Green Street— has been pressed into service as Chinatown.
The film shoot in question is “Us & Them”
And here’s the rundown per a flyer located nearby as to what this endeavor is about…
