Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Moving On Up…

Imagic

Given recent events I am pleased to pass along some good news:

midfeb

Imagic Studio will not be leaving Greenpoint. Rather, they will be relocating to 937 Manhattan Avenue and are slated reopen “MID – FEB”.

Speaking as someone who has relied on this family-run business for all manner and variety of large format printing (they do a smash-up job with nice prices to boot), I give this development two enthusiastic New York Shitty thumbs up.

New York Shitty Pay Phone Du Jour: Greenpoint Avenue

This just goes to show to go how great of a city this is: you can get anything delivered by simply placing a phone call. Even “white pussy”.

Next Week: The Williamsburg Hotel Presents

This comes from none other than the SLA and Public Safety Committee Co-Chair himself: Tom Burrows. Those of you who have had enough— or cannot get enough— hotels hereabouts take note. On Monday, January 12th at Greenpoint’s very own Mary D’s Senior Center 96 Wythe Acquisition LLC dba “The Williamsburg Hotel” (whose endeavor has been given letters of support by both Councilman Levin and Assemblyman Lentol) will be giving a presentation. Public comments and questions are encouraged. New York Shitty tip: ask them about their proposed Hotel Loading Zones and No Standing Zones and how they are going to balance public space for 642 people against a parking lot with only twenty spaces.

Cheers!

Tomorrow: Happy Birthday, Irene!

If you do not know who this amazing woman is, you should. Her name is Irene Klementowicz and this is what she had to say about an “environmental study” presentation a couple years ago.

Tomorrow, January 8th, will be her 86th birthday. If any of you, gentle readers, see her on Manhattan Avenue (always stylishly attired) wish her a happy and healthy one. It is women such as her who keep this community (or at least some of its bullshit) in check. And for this reason I adore her. This one’s for you, Irene.

P.S.: Also of note, “OSA” will be rolling out their vision plan for the Greenpoint Waterfront.

Those of you who plan on attending this dog and pony show: please keep Irene in the backs of your minds. After all, what does it say about a “parks advocacy group” when its head is the very same attorney who, under George “Greenpoint Landing” Klein’s hire, stumped for the 2005 Rezone (parks for super-sizing scheme) in the first place?

The fellow in question prefers to see it as “community advocacy”— and I suppose, given his purview— it is.
