New York Shitty Analysis
Glass half empty: Someone lost his beloved pet pigeon
Glass half full: this could very be the easiest $100 ever
Special thanks goes to Mike Hofmann for bringing this corker (which hails from Manhattan Avenue) to my attention.

This post goes out to my buddies Kevin “The Historian” Walsh of Forgotten New York, the inimitable Crappy “The Populist” of Queens and Jeremiah “The Grumbler” Moss of Vanishing New York for being amongst the Village Voice’s picks for Gotham’s 18 finest blog stars.
Oh yeah, yours truly made the list too: “Local Girl”.
Check it out!
P.S: Bed Stuy Blog could have, should have qualified for this list.
It’s been awhile, but today I walked by Cutting Edge Fitness.
Not surprisingly, this establishment is (still) open for business. Despite a Stop Work Order, the owner of said establishment being barred from operating a gym— for the rest of his life and ordered to pay restitution by the Attorney General’s office and a rather pesky ECB violation: #34754765Y.
Looks like it is business as usual in Williamsburg.

From Kent Avenue.
Appropriately enough, the property adjacent to this is being converted into a bar.

I almost shot hot chocolate out of my nose when I saw this corker on Broadway this blustery afternoon. Granted, I have not been to Manhattan lately but this does not strike me being something one would ordinarily see there. At least not without a neighborhood association or two raising holy hell first. No sir, masterpieces of this caliber are almost exclusively an outer-borough affair.
I would also be remiss if I didn’t point out that this advertisement’s claim that this excrescence is “new construction” is somewhat disingenuous. Believe it or not this building was once a carbon copy of its neighbor to the left. Now it is “Manhattan Style Living”. Lucky us.

C writes: Saw this on my greenpoint feed. Translation is spotty, but interesting read on EU acceptance of poland and its effect on greenpoint, and the change in demographics from a Polish perspective.
I agree: this is an interesting read. Although the translation is a bit awkward at times, the point more or less gets across. Above all, I (and I suspect I speak for many of my fellow Greenpointers when I write this) want to know is where these folks found a studio apartment for $1,000 a month. I haven’t seen one of those in years. Check it out!
