Culture on the Cheap
Steal this woman’s caulk and you will rot in hell
As many of you are aware, Sunday I co-conducted Forgotten-NY‘s tour of Greenpoint. I think most of the attendees will agree with me when I say that it was a very enjoyable (if lengthy) experience. Not only was I pleased by the high turn-out (of very nice and interesting people), but I am proud of my fellow Greenpointers for making them feel right at home.
Without argument, the above woman was one of my favorite (if accidental) highlights of the tour. We encountered her on Calyer Street just west of McGuinness Boulevard. You will notice that a sign graces her fence. Her companion was kind enough to model it for us.
As I have said many times before, Greenpointers are not afraid to speak their minds. When asked about why she put up this sign, my new Greenpoint heroine was more than happy to oblige. Apparently a friend of hers dropped off $70.00 worth of caulk at her house. He (or she) left it inside the gate. Before this woman could put her newly acquired cache of caulk to use, someone saw fit to steal it.
May they ROT IN HELL indeed! Why the fuck would someone steal $70.00 worth of caulk anyway? I hope she finds the perpetrator and kicks his ass.
Only in Greenpoint, folks.
