Greenpoint Audio/Visual Presentation Du Jour: Miss Heather Explains The Difference Between Greenpoint & Williamsburg

Today was a red letter one for yours truly. Not only did I have the sheer luck of meeting a very nice lady who makes her own mead (and offered to make some for yours truly— totally free— if I provide her the honey) but I had lunch and some long overdue “catch-up” time with a buddy of mine. He’s a really funny and witty chap, that Tony. After we completed our meal at Kestane Kebab we went for a little walk. As luck would have it we encountered a tour group at the intersection of Union and Driggs Avenue. We decided to hang around a spell and see what’s up. The guide, noticing my rapt interest (and in all likelihood my ensemble of pink sweats, pink hoodie, pink sunglasses, pink sneakers and signature Chococat hat), started quizzing me about what constitutes Greenpoint versus Williamsburg. Hilarity ensues. (NOTE/CAVEAT: It was pretty windy out so you’ll need to crank up the volume a bit. Take my word for it: it’s worth it.)

Special thanks go out to Tony (who I would like to mention has started a blog of his own) for having the presence of mind to record this exchange. And oh yeah— it was pleasure making your acquaintance, Mr. Seidenstein. I like the way you think!

  4. The ‘Burgification of McCarren Park really pisses me off. Especially in regards to the pool. Pete McGuinness, a party boss from Greenpoint, made that happen.

    Otherwise, this guy (guide) had a great sense of humor. It was fun bantering with him!

  10. Damn. I thought it might classify as ‘Schwicksburg…” But Bed Stuy already? Damn.

Tell me what you're thinking...
