Just thought you might get a kick out of this ridiculous video shot at Greenpoint’s own Fruit and Deli Market.  Enjoy!

Not only did I almost feel of my chair laughing at this but it literally rendered the Mister speechless. I assure you this is no small accomplishment.  Thank you so much for passing this along, Colin!

Williamsburg Gentrification Watch: Biergarten Brunch With Santa!

It’s a little known fact but Mister Heather was once “Santa” at a local business in Greenpoint. Granted, he was not drunk while discharging his duties (or sported a salmon under his beard) but he needed a stiff one shortly thereafter. For this reason I find the following event, which comes courtesy of north Brooklyn’s very own Town Square, truly innovative!

Bierbrunch

BEER AND BRUNCH WITH SANTA! Per the above flier:

…What’s that sound? Is it the jingle of Santa’s bells? Guess what kids? Santa is coming to Williamsburg for a delicious brunch at Radegast Hall & Biergarten!

Brunch With Santa!
December 12, 2009; 11:00 – 1:00 p.m.
Radegast Hall & Biergarten
113 North 3 Street
Childrensburg, Brooklyn, 11211

Before and After 911nys

The above photograph is probably in some part responsible for motivating me to write about Greenpoint. Like most things in my life, it was an accident. I had shot a roll of film, then 9/11 happened. Not having the means to buy more film I rewound it, thus creating this double exposure of life on Manhattan Avenue juxtaposed with Manhattan going black.

I do not want to suggest that this photo set is dark. It isn’t. The Garden Spot of the Universe and the people who live here are resilient and vibrant. But it does make one wonder about how things have changed since these photographs were taken.

My favorite is this one, lest you are wondering.
