Spotted On Bushwick Avenue: GG

February 3, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11206, Crosstown Local, East Williamsburg, East Williamsburg Brooklyn 

When you think about it, the Crosstown Local is not unlike Snuffleupagus: sure, Big Bird claims he exists but he’s never to be found. Maybe the GG is the MTA’s imaginary friend?

I am having to relocate to the UK and due to their quarantine laws Dee Dee can’t travel for approx 6 months (until 21st July) so i am looking for someone to look after him until I can come back to pick him up then. He is approx 7 months old and completely healthy. He does need one trip to the vet (the one he goes to is in Brooklyn) to get neutered and have his second FCVRP vaccination sometime around the 11th-18th February. He’s a really affectionate and easy-going cat although still in his kitten stage (so a little excitable). I would obviously pay for all vet’s bills, food etc. The problem is that I’m leaving on Friday so I am looking for someone to take him in either on Thursday or Friday morning. Let me know if you know anyone or would be interested. It breaks my heart to leave him and I would like to leave him in good hands.

Perhaps yours? Ever wondered if you have the stuff to be a crazy cat person? Here’s your chance to find out! The details about Siobhan’s situation are scant but there’s one inalienable truth: this little guy is damned cute and deserves a good home before he goes “across the pond”.

Anyone interested in giving Dee Dee (named after, I would presume, yours trulys least favorite Ramone) a temporary home should contact Siobhan ASAP at:

Bushwick Photo Du Jour: Sprinklers

Looks like someone on Knickerbocker Avenue needs to refine his aim. Then again, it could always be worse. If you build it they will come go. And always too soon.

I really like this.

P.S.: While I am on the subject of stuff I like, I can’t resist tossing in this oldie but goody from Dan Witz located a few feet away.

East Williamsburg Photos Du Jour: The Shittiest Car in North Brooklyn?

As the previous post indicates, I have been experiencing a great deal of existentialist boredom of late. This is not to suggest I have seen it all. I haven’t— nor do I really care to. My imagination suffices. Nonetheless there are times when I am quickly and rudely awakened from my waking somnambulism. Today as I was walking down Ten Eyck Street was once such time.

When I see something like this I assure myself there must be a reasonable explanation. The best one I could muster in this situation was this vehicle was on the business end of a cement mixer. Upon closer inspection I deduced this was not the case.

No sir. This is 100% genuine north Brooklyn guano!

I find it strangely inspiring that no matter how much abuse we humans dole out to mother earth, she sees fit to strike back on occasion. In this case via the humble Columba livia. You go, girl!

East Williamsburg Street Seating Du Jour: Boerum Street

Ever had one of those moments when you realize you need a vacation? Today I had one such moment.

Me (to myself):

Oh look, a street couch.

Wait, make that two street couches! I bet the gent taking a “nap” on this specimen is anatomically correct.

Sure enough, I was right.
