Today I took my buddy Triborough for a quick jaunt around points Green and beyond. As is usually the case, it did not disappoint.
It was at the beginning of our journey (on Noble Street) that we encountered Jerzy (AKA: the guy who lives in the pick-up truck on that toy-strewn lot on Franklin Street). He was engaged in a discussion of some importance with a fellow Garden Spotter.
Who watches the watchmen?
His jacket asks.
Me (playing tour guide):
Note how the family is giving Jerzy a wide berth of passage. This is a sign of high status in Greenpoint.
And then there was what we found towards the end of our trek. It hails form North 7 Street and makes for a strange— yet curiously appropriate— conclusion to our afternoon.
There’s a lot more going on here than initially meets the eye. This is why I carry camera with me at all times!
