Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Moultrie Street

Reflection Water Testing Station 2

Today— being as it is Martin Luther King Day— the Mister (who had the day off) and I took a walk. This vision greeted us at the intersection of Moultrie Street and Meserole Avenue. I, noting this wonder of nature is a shitting spitting distance from the Shit Tits, dubbed it Lake Shiticaca.

Greenpoint Reservoir 2

Upon closer inspection I concurred that the Mister’s suggested moniker “The Greenpoint Reservoir” is much more apropos.

Those of you who want to take your model motor (or U) boats for a spin— or have a few dozen rubber duckies (this being north Brooklyn, I am certain someone does)— may wish to exploit this bit of Greenpoint Glory while it lasts.

At first glance I thought this was an item from The Onion. This appears not to be the case. If you have seen this fellow or know of his whereabouts the NYPD would very much like to hear from you. You can learn how and get the whole story by clicking here. Otherwise I’d be remiss by not noting:

1. Shit like this makes me miss the days when folks simply went to the C Town, feasted and left the remains (including a half-eaten pierogi) in the dairy section.

2. The resemblance this chap has to the following fellows is remarkable.

Beastie Boys video from 1994 = the disguise of choice for this fellow. Up and coming/”hip” neighborhood = a more advanced class of (ironic?) criminals.

For those of you who may be unaware/not in the know: the 94th Precinct has a Twitter account. Just today they announced January is “National Stalking Awareness Month”. Better late than never I suppose…

Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Moving On Up…

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.
