Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Welcome to Williamsburg

This morning as I was running errands I noticed the A & J Farm Market at was getting a face lift. It new awning now proclaims it be the “New A & J Farm Market”. But that’s not what I found interesting. Rather, it was what was revealed when they removed the old awning.



The old sign (which can be seen in larger format by clicking on the above image) reads “Williamsburg Floor Covering”. Yes folks, it would appear that the ‘Burgification of Greenpoint not only predates the real estate boom, but also reaches as far north as Green Street. I for one take issue with this. To set the record straight this building is located in Williamsburg Heights or North Vinyl Siding.
