I just arrived home from a walk around north ‘Point to discover a bevy of photographic goodness in my inbox! The above photos come courtesy of a lass named Margot Spindelman, who writes:
unfortunately didn’t have my camera with me at 8am, when crazy boyfriend insisted we walk to the creek.
You can look forward to photos from yours truly in a bit— so check back!

If this photo (which hails from McGolrick Park and was taken by Catherine Behan) is any indication, it would appear someone saw fit to use Irene as an opportunity to unburden this motor vehicle of its tires. Nice.

Assuming that you know that the Vagina Tree did not survive.
R.I.P. Vagina Tree. The joy you have given people in north Brooklyn— and beyond— will not be forgotten. May you rest in
UPDATE, 12:10 p.m.: I have been advised that this tragic turn of events has caused the closure of Bedford Avenue. Plan accordingly, folks!
UPDATE, 8:40 p.m.: Special Correspondent Christine writes:
With a level of efficiency never seen before in McCarren or CB1 parks, the Vagina Tree is no more. Someone did place a few candles on the stump but the wind had blown them out.
*As some of you might have noticed I have amended the name of this post. Special thanks go out to Miss Mousey Brown for the catchy new title!
I took these photos around 10:45 this morning. All in all things looked pretty good. However, the end of Huron Street sustained some damage and there were a disquieting number of folks strolling along the India Street Pier (which, in light of possible storm surges, struck yours truly as being incredibly foolish). Hopefully I can take a stroll later— but in the meantime if any of you, dear readers, have photos and/or stories to share please dump them into my photo pool (no porn* please) or send ’em to me via email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com.
*Hey I like it as much— if not more— than the average person but there is a time and a place for everything. Really.
