Fedders Friday: Back With A Vengeance

I’ll admit it. I have been sorely remiss recording the impact Fedderization has taken on our fair borough. Thankfully I went to Sunset Park last weekend and got my religion revulsion back. Big time.


The air conditioning boxes are technically Friedrichs but I am conferring honorary Fedders status to this building for the following reasons:

  1. It is ugly as hell.
  2. Sports no plant life whatsoever (save what the city dictates).
  3. Exposed gutters and mismatched brickwork: clearly this developer thought he (or she) could go higher. It didn’t happen so now we have this partial birth abortion.
  4. with obnoxious balconies…
  5. and security cameras.


Another Sunset Park beauty…

Replete with concrete, electric and gas meters.


Those of you who are more D.C. comic savvy know of Bizarro Superman. Now I present to you the Bizarro Fedders Special twins! They’re not prettier, only different. And very special!


Rapunzel let down your hair…

So I can climb up and get into your underwear!

— Beastie Boys.

Could someone explain the following to me?

An (ostensible) architect is responsible for this abomination. Who? I must know!

In closing which one of these buildings doesn’t look like the others?

If you guessed the towering pile of beige crap in the middle you are correct!

God bless you, Sunset Park. You need it.

  2. I’ve been very modest about our Fedders status. However, I’m pleased that we were able to help your passion re-ignite. I look forward to more exhibits.

    LOVE the panties and overlapping balconies/air conditioners. Excellent eye.

  4. Your panties give me fire. Rhetorically speaking.

  6. That last photo… was that Eighth Avenue near 41st-42nd Street?

  10. While I loved the Beastie Boy reference!, what on earth is that apartment dweller trying to convey to the general public by displaying panties in their front window?! I can honestly say that is something I have never seen.

  12. I have friends who live in Sunset Park but haven’t visited yet. Nice to see what I’m in for! And I’m glad someone else knows that Beastie Boys song too! One of the best shows I’ve seen in my life was Beasties in McCarren summer 2007.

  14. Bitchcakes: Those panties are white flags of surrender! Just ask Sarah Palin.
