From The New York Shitty Inbox: More Ado About The Viridian
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Earlier this week I made light of the pool at the Viridian achieving a very Brooklyn hue.Â Well, if my inbox is any indication, that wouldn’t appear to be the only thing that’s shaking at the house Magic built. Zan writes (in regards to the above photographs in an email entitled “Stay Classy Viridian”):
hey heather! have you seen the latest, greatest security system that has been installed at the huron street entrance to the viridian? wood planks- the doormen of the new economy!
Needless to say I had to see this in person. I was not disappointed.
You know what they say:
Good fences make good neighbors.
This fence reminds me of the Berlin wall.
As does this, for that matter.
The security system (a one by two) has been disarmed.
Something closely resembling a book shelf from a college dormitory has been erected in front.*
And the facade is looking as Cold War fabulous as ever!
In all seriousness folks, two months free rent or otherwise, I cannot believe people are paying top dollar to live in this dump.
