New York Shitty Day Ender: Saturday Night In Greenpoint
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
This nook— or would that be cranny— on Green Street has become a very popular place for our increasing homeless population to get a little al fresco shut-eye. Perhaps the Viridian could take him in? They have the space to share. Let’s put this nondo to good use!*
*This week I had an epiphany regarding the multitude of half-completed/bankrupt apartment buildings in north Brooklyn. We, as citizens, should not be rewarding these chaps by bailing them out with our tax dollars with no strings attached, e.g.; if said properties do indeed turn a profit we’ll see no return on our investment. (Which is exactly what the HARP plan will do). We should convert them into for profit prisons and homeless shelters. Greenpoint has pretty much become one (of many) dumping grounds for Manhattan’s “undesirables”— why not make a few bucks off it? Beside, convicted felons *cough*Â *Madoff* deserve scenic Manhattan views, a doorman, swimming pool and balconies too!
