Culture on the Cheap
Tis The Season: 57 Franklin Street
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Those of you who frequent Franklin Street have probably noticed this house. While not terribly remarkable (there are many like it in Greenpoint) the owners spare no time and expense on seasonal decor. Be it Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas, these people celebrate with style!
A retinue of snowmen meets and greets passersby.
A stoop festooned with candy canes…
I love these little guys. And last, but hardly least, my personal favorite…
Hundreds of little snowflakes, jingle bells and icicles grace the trees! If you have the time and wherewithal to brave this downright brutal chill do swing by and see this festive display of holiday cheer in person. TIP: it’s even more impressive at night!
P.S.: On an unrelated note, today’s offerings will be decidedly lite. I have a lot of work to get caught up on before this busy pre-holiday weekend— including get a donation together for the Greenpoint Reformed Church’s Holiday Flea Market!
