Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Manhattan Avenue Gets A New Sign

Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Wow, WTF 

A recent source of fascination for yours truly is recent adjustment of parking on the western side of Manhattan Avenue between India and Huron Street. This is because I have seen a great many motorist receive a parking ticket while patronizing the recently criminalized space on this block. If I had a dollar for each one I would have a nice little chunk of beer money— but I don’t and I digress. This morning I noticed something quite interesting… a Department of Transportation employee replacing the sign adjacent to said non-parking space. His handiwork did not go unnoticed by my fellow citizens. They all agreed he did a nice job. Naturally they— as many others hereabouts— raised the question as to why the parking space straddling 983 and 987 Manhattan is verboten. And as you can see, he is explaining the bus stop has been moved, etc. etc. Upon completing the task at hand, he collected his ladder… and loaded it onto the truck parked in the bike lane across the street. As for the need for a “new” sign (as seen above), perhaps looking at its predecessor will shed some light on the matter. Why yes, those all caps are way too easy to read. And those nice big icons? Way too legible. This must be stopped immediately!!! I do not make this shit up, folks…

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: NOTORIOUS

When I saw this at Union Square yesterday afternoon I simply had to ask the wearer if I may take a photo of it. She gladly agreed and noted that while the Notorious RBG elicits a lot curiosity, very few know what this is “about”. GOD BLESS AMERICA. Or, as I later opined to the Mister:

I wonder how many people in this country do not even know we have a Supreme Court— wait, I probably do not want to know this.

In any case, you those of you who are so inclined should check out the rather entertaining Notorious R.B.G. web site and I am linking to this, this and this because this is my blog and I find them entertaining. So there.
