Urban Artifact: 601 Days & Counting!

Jailbear 1 June 11 2014 600

It’s been awhile since I have checked in on my favorite urban artifact/Greenpoint citizen: Jailbear. Today I opted to swing by and see what’s up. It did not disappoint.

Jailbear 2 600

 

He has been presented two new offerings: a lovely candy dish and souvenir spoon holder from Hawaii.

They’re very nice.

New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: Where The Rainbow Ends

We got a nice clip of rain this afternoon, but as the Mister and I were having dinner at Casanova’s this evening the sun finally reemerged. The owner of Casanova’s went outside to take a look. I joined him.

Looking for rainbows?

I asked.

He said that, in fact, he was not but— suggested that perhaps one could be seen to the west. I disagreed:

No, it will be over there (pointing east, towards our splendid waste water treatment facility).

I went around the corner and guess what?

Where The Rainbow Ends 600

I was right! I went inside, grabbed my camera and hauled ass to Provost Street. The proprietor of Casanova’s was quite amused by this. To wit, I replied:

rainbow 2 600

I know my shit.

Where Dreams Come From 600

If you look carefully, gentle readers, you will notice the faint trace of a second rainbow emanating from the “poop stack”. I gleefully advised the Mister of this discovery, observing:

It’s there because that’s where dreams come from!

Because of course, it is. Closing on a (downright uncanny) note of dreams, rainbows and the Shit Tits, today I completed my first (but definitely not last) Greenpoint-themed snow globe. I proudly present Superfund Me!

A big New York Shitty shout out goes to the owner of Casanova’s for keeping my pizza in the over while I went forth to chase rainbows. I just love rainbows…

This post is dedicated to Christine Holowacz who, I have learned, will be leaving her position as the Newtown Creek Monitoring Committee community liaison for the greener pastures of the Koscuiszko Bridge Project!

I am going to go out on a limb here and state that the above depicted is probably not official DOT issue. It’s way cooler— of course with our Mayor’s “Vision Zero” initiative whose to say…
