Culture on the Cheap
Great Moments In Real Estate Rhetoric: “The Village”
Any resident of this area can tell you how laughably bad this advertisement is:
- Luxury lofts + village (sans idiot) + north Brooklyn = laughable
- These “luxury lofts” are located nowhere near the heart of anything. They are located south of the BQE in that disorienting no man’s land that downzoning forgot.
- In other words, this building is located in Greenpoint
But who cares about semantics! Let’s take a closer look at this “village” shall we?
Here’s a view of Richardson Street looking westward. Those quaint 8+ story tall buildings are condominiums.
Here’s a shot of Monitor Street. This street was named after the U.S.S. Monitor which was launched in Greenpoint. Lest any of you are wondering why the above row of edifices is punctuated, a two story house (AKA: “The Monitor Street Sandwich”) is to blame. I wonder how this petite chateau is faring? Let’s go in for a closer look!
Welcome to the village Greenpoint, FUCKS.
