Culture on the Cheap
Spotted On McGuinness Boulevard: Hay
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
LOTS OF HAY.
I have no idea what this is about. Is this an attempt at an eco-friendly crash barrier or a feeding station for Roy and Trigger? I suppose only it’s creator knows for certain. I saw we toss in a few pumpkins and a scarecrow or two. McGuinness Boulevard could use some holiday cheer!
P.S.: While I’m on the subject of parks and open space does anyone know what is going on at Sgt. Dougherty Playground?
If I had to hazard a guess I’d say these are planters.
Given this park’s rather lackluster location (READ: a trucker bomb’s toss from the BQE and the Kosciuszko Bridge) I suppose this is a positive development. Then again, taking into account that the only time I have seen a person at this playground it was a gentlemen named Jemal composing music on a saxophone (because he didn’t want to bother anyone) it makes me wonder how meaningful this addition will be. If a rose grows in Sgt. Dougherty Playground and no is around to smell it is it any less fragrant?
