Yes folks, the juggernaut that is our local waste water treatment plant keeps on coming with this item— which was brought to my attention by my friend Aaron Short. Open House New York will once again be allowing access to our beloved landmark Saturday, October 9th, and Sunday, October, 10th! You can get a full schedule of times and make a reservation (as I have) by clicking here. Note: strollers are not allowed and “sturdy closed-toe shoes” are required. Heh…

hey miss heather,
love your blog and hope that you could help me add some eyes to the search for my stolen bike.
sometime between 10 p.m. last night and 8 a.m. this morning, my bike was stolen. it was locked on the gate in front of my apartment on monitor between nassau and driggs. cable lock was cut clean through.
now here’s the thing. this bike is small. like really small. anyone that is over 5’2″ won’t be able to ride it comfortably. it’s also orange. really orange. it has orange handle bar tape and an old vintage schwinn speedometer on the handle bars. it’s also very heavy. i have attached a photo of the bike… if you see someone… with a small orange bike, please contact me via email.
hope some nice greenpointers can help me out! i love this bike!
If anyone has seen this bike or knows of its whereabouts please contact Molly via email at mollsrawks (at) gmail (dot) com

been watching them make these sculptures for a year but didn’t realize they were intended to go up there
I have been watching these sculptures (which can be found on Manhattan Avenue north of Ash Street) as well! Some of them are quite beautiful. I will definitely have to swing by and see this in person!

When I heard my buddy Laura was going to be on Good Day New York I was really excited for her. Naturally she was very nervous— but as you can see she did just fine. You go, girl!
Bedford Avenue starts showing signs of Halloween spirit!
P.S.: On a completely unrelated note I am continuing to upload footage from last night’s joint Public Safety/Human Services meeting. As I have intimated previously (and repeatedly) I have been having considerable problems with this seemingly simple task. The last I checked the one I am uploading currently (where the Chair of Community Board 1 speaks) is going to take five hours. No kidding. In any case I really want you to give this a listen as I do what our local Co-Pastor, Ann Kansfield (speaking as someone who has a lot of experience dealing with Greenpoint’s homeless), has to say about this proposed shelter and homeless services in general. When these are uploaded I will embed them in a post. Keep an eye out for them (no pun intended).

I have no idea why someone would do this to a humble street cone— but that’s not really the point. Rather, I am simply content they did!
