The Word On The Street: Doric

A Contradiction of Column Nomenclature nys

As taken on Park Place yesterday May 23rd, 2015. Those of you, gentle readers, who are familiar with Greek architecture will understand why I find this amusing.

Hi Miss Heather,

This may be old news by now but saw from the ferry this morning that our beloved ‘Save the Palestine’ water tower now (less-legibly) reads something else— ‘Save GPOINT’
These days it would seem Greenpoint could use some saving.
Indubitably. Well played, anonymous vandal!
