I am pleased to announce that not only has “TTB” been successfully spelled out using Greenpoint’s medium of choice (empty liquor bottles) but the anonymous artist at
work play has moved onto the next subway grate!
Hmm. I wonder what message our mystery artist wishes to share? I am going to go out on a limb here and predict something along the lines of the following….

Taken August 3, 2015.
By and large my inbox is pretty boring. Press releases mostly. Eric Adams is by and large the most prolific. However when my own sister-in-law stumbles upon a find such as this— and thinks of me— quite frankly, I am touched. She writes:
…at first worried maybe you would be offended…
Quite to the contrary. I have been called and/or likened to much worse things.
In closing, if Reverend Jen (or her friends) are paying attention; I have brought Reverend Jen’s work to my sister in law’s attention. She very much wants the proprietress of the Lower East Side Troll Museum herself to see this work of art. It does, by all appearances, seem to be a painting of the kind of trolls Jen collects and loves. Make it happen, Internet hive mind!

The facial expression pretty much says it all. Ever wondered what 949 days of non-stop “oversight” of Franklin Street and Greenpoint Avenue will do to you? Well, now you know. Like the hat, however…

Today yours truly decided to avail herself of the sunshine and take a stroll around the neighborhood. It was on Manhattan Avenue I happened upon the above item. Knowing Greenpoint genius when I see it, I opted to stop and take a photo of it. This piqued the interest of the gentleman (presumably) responsible for this piece of art. He assured me it is very much a work in progress. The end product will spell out the initials of an buddy of his: “T. T. B.”. I applauded him on his ingenuity using a commonplace object (airplane bottles of liquor, many are to be found hereabouts) and the environment (in this case, a subway grate) so as to create a work of public art. My only suggestion was he perhaps paint the bottles so as to make them more noticeable. He noted quite a few passersby made that suggestion and that he plans to not only paint the bottles (in multiple colors, by hand) but continue this work on the adjacent grates. I am guessing divesting said bottles of their contents (READ: consumption) may very well be a “recreational”/”performance” aspect of this project as well. Brilliant! I can hardly wait to see the rest of this project unfold…

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. For those who do not: I can only hope there is another apartment building somewhere called the “Corinthian” sporting Ionic columns. As far as “capitals” go, I prefer Carolingian myself.

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.
