The above missive was captured by an ex-pat Greenpointer, Rebecca, on Second Avenue and 95th Street. If the pup in the above picture looks familiar to some of you, it should. It is none other than Fred T. Sanford who, as some of you might recall, “discovered”* a lifetime achievement award for director Sidney Lumet at a traffic triangle right here in the Garden Spot!

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of playing tour guide for a New School student who is studying our fair burgh. I concluded our jaunt around the Garden Spot with a visit to yours truly’s favorite piece of street seating. As you can see it has been, um, marked.
This handsome fellow (?) hails from DUMBO and was captured by Chris Arnade who writes:
The eyes drew me in, the Gatorade sold me.
Just wanted to confirm. The Chipin link is the official St. Anthony’s online contribution method? I was going to make a contribution but saw that the amount was still at $0 and wasn’t sure if it was being used.
I have been told by the woman who has set up this page (and put me in touch with St. Anthony’s in the first place), Laura, that this page has been de-bugged and two people have donated no less that $100 each! She writes:
The ChipIn page is up and running and the donations are already coming in! It’s so great to see the community rally around this cause. As Heather mentioned I am a parishoner at St. Anthony’s, but almost more importantly a fellow Greenpointer who misses things like this that make our community unique.
If there is anything I can do to help you spread the word about this project, please let me know!
So there have you.
