New York Shitty Street Art Du Jour: Eyes On The Street

Ever had the feeling you were being watched? Today I did as I was strolling down Box Street. I looked over my should and, lo, spied this furry fella. He (?) is undoubtedly the handiwork of Dan Witz and made my day!

Broccoli Head

As discovered in front of the Thai Cafe today. The use of broccoli for hair is an inspired touch!

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: Comin’ At You From The Union Square Farmer’s Market…

Occasionally— no, make that quite often— I like to indulge my inner teenager. Thus New York Shitty wishes to give a salute to what appears to be the John Holmes of produce. Who said being a vegetarian was boring. In any case I give this wonder of nature two enthusiastic thumbs up (one had to hold the camera)!

Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: On The Waterfront

See that grey stuff? That’s Manhattan.

Yup.

Once again: Yup.

One more time: Yup.

The good news: the feral felines which North Brooklyn Cats (lovely ladies all) trapped, neutered and released appear to be doing well!

The bad news: the park bench* and fence** gracing this piece of much-needed “open space” are still submerged.

What’s more, they now have a most unusual urban artifact to give them company.

A safe.

Make that an EX safe.

Welcome to Greenpoint.

Repeat after me:

Graffiti— not landlord neglect; definitely not a lack of investment and especially NOT enforcement of the law by our fair city— is ruining the neighborhood…

*Aquatic since at least November 3, 2013.
**Wrecked since at least October 8, 2013.

You are first and foremost my favorite citizen of Greenpoint. You are badass personified. This post is for you— and many more years!
