Greenpoint Feral Furniture Watch: Humboldt Street Mattress Slalom?
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Today has been a busy one for yours truly. If the copious emails I have received are any indication, I’d say the snow— which has been the basis for most of the aforementioned missives— has obstructed sidewalks and thoroughfares hereabouts, but our information super highway is functioning quite well! What’s more, someone has seen fit to have fun with the white stuff. Bedbugs be damned. CASE IN POINT:
Sherry writes (in regards to this post):
I passed by three mattresses and a box spring this morning on my way to work. One mattress, which was out for trash *in the street* at Humboldt and Norman made its way down the block (toward Nassau), which is when my mom snapped this picture. I’m thinking someone used it as a sled.
