Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Fat Boy R.I.P.
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Newtown Creek
Ever since I got the sad news about Fat Boy last night I have not been able to get him off my mind. More specifically, I was wondering exactly what the fuck he is. Or perhaps that should be what he was? Anyway, I just got back from a sojourn to the Manhattan Avenue park. Sure enough, he was still there.
Wait a minute. Didn’t our local Parks guru tell me he was going to be picked up this morning?
Well, I guess it is morning somewhere. In any case it would appear that in this mortal coil Fat Boy was a gerbil…
and true to his name, he is was rather rotund.
Goodbye, little fella.
UPDATE, October 8, 2009: Fat Boy has been removed— presumably by the Parks Department.
