Greenpoint Photo du Jour: Kingsland Avenue

One thing I love about Brooklyn is each neighborhood has its own unique take on what constitutes a cozy and inviting home. For example:

Stockholm Street Menagerie

In Bushwick polychromatic statuary is the way to go.

Bed-Stuy flamingos

Bedford-Stuyvesant prefers to festoon their fences with flamingos.

Jason on Kingsland

And in Greenpoint nothing says “welcome home” like a Jason mask standing watch over your stoop. Yes sir, we Greenpointers love us some homicidal maniacs! Fake flowers, cutesy woodland creatures and colorful plumage are for wimps.

Jason is my copilot

In fact, we like Jason much we are not content with him merely gracing our homes, we also take him on the road! So much for Jesus. Any Greenpointer worth his (or her) salt knows the son of god cannot protect you from the utter lunacy that is the Greenpoint motorist. In the Garden Spot Jason is our co-pilot.
