New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: And Now A Word From 387 Classon Avenue…

387 Classon

We’ve all seen and traversed them: endless flyers and cards soliciting one kind of service or another gracing our sidewalks, foyers, doorways and even intercom systems. Speaking for myself, car services and real estate agents seem to be the worst offenders— but there’s plenty more blame to go around. Thus we, as citizens, post flyers stating we do not want these tree-killers gracing our property. After all, if we wanted or required these services we would undoubtedly find them of our own accord. This is why god created the Internet.

Most of the “no flyer” signs I see on any given day are the standard boiler plate variety. I need not explore them here because quite frankly they’re not very interesting. The manner in which the above residence has approached this problem, however, is another matter altogether. Behold the genius for yourselves, gentle readers.

You can always leave it to our friends in Bedford Stuyvesant to do something with style. Well done, 387 Classon! Let this be an inspiration to us all…

Those of you who have not done so already should check out the lovely (and by all appearances, completed) mural at 969 Manhattan Avenue (on India Street). It’s a nice pick-me-up on this dreary day!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: It’s BAAAAAAAACK!

A fellow named Tony writes yesterday, October 12th, in an email entitled “HALLOWEEN”:

HEY JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW I HAVE DECORATED AGAIN FOR HALLOWEEN. 648 HUMBOLDT STREET. I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU ENJOY IT..  THANX

Today I decided to swing by and verify this wonderful turn-of-events in person. Guess what?

Granted, this is still a very much “work in progress” (for example: the toxic waste/blood vomiting ghoul has not been installed yet). Nonetheless I feel compelled as a citizen to share the good news ASAP. This is a red letter day in Greenpoint, Garden Spotters!

Mark Your Calendars: All Creatures Great & Small

Annual Blessing of the Animals nys

Just today I recalled we were reaching the time of year when the Church of the Ascension (in honor of St. Francis) hosts its annual blessing and remembrance service for critters of all kinds. Then, serendipitously enough, I spy Reverend Merz himself on Manhattan Avenue posting fliers. This is a wonderful event and a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors and fellow furkids— past and present. Check it out!
