Bushwick Barf-O-Rama!

That’s right folks, it’s time for Fedders Friday! This week I had a hard time deciding which building to feature so I decided to feature three fine-ass Fedders from Bushwick for your afternoon enjoyment. Ready? Let’s go!

Bushwick Barf 1

I like to call this architectural style Art Stucco.

Bushwick Barf 2

Here’s a second view. Not only is aluminum siding thrown in the mix but if you look closely, you can count twenty Fedders boxes!

Bushwick Barf 3

I’m a big fan of this building which (like the previous building) is located on Schaeffer Street. The architect got a little crazy here and laid out the Fedders in a zig zag fashion. Tres jaunty!

Bushwick Barf 4

The addition of a security camera is a nice touch. It offsets the exposed gutters quite nicely.

Bushwick Barf 6

Last, but hardly least for those of you who prefer your digs to have a more utilitarian lived-in look, this monolithic beauty awaits you on Jefferson Street.

  2. Miss Heather, Pardon my non-New Yorker knowledge but what is a Fedders Box? I love your blog and want to visit Greenpoint, shit, misplaced archetecture, Fedders boxes and all, someday soon.

  4. hamburke- fedders (or friedrich) boxes are the exposed, built-in air conditioners that instantly define a total lack of design on a building. please note though that this is more bushwick and not greenpoint. greenpoint and bushwick barely even border each other and they shouldn’t be confused. bushwick is where you go to die. greenpoint is where you go to live. i’ve done them both and would suggest living over being stabbed for your whiteness.

Tell me what you're thinking...
