Culture on the Cheap
New York Shitty Day Ender: The DEP Nature Walk
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Newtown Creek
Yesterday yours truly had a rock star moment. Well, not exactly— the other party involved, a very polite French couple, did not know who they were talking to: none other than the cheerleader of/unofficial spokeswoman for our beloved Shit Tits! Our conversation kicked as follows:
Excuse me, do you live around here?
The woman asked.
I answered to the affirmative.
Do you know of a futuristic park around here?
She asked. I gave the matter some thought and asked:
In Greenpoint, yes?
She answered to the affirmative.
Oh yes, yes!
She replied. I then proceeded to enthusiastically give her and hers directions to this Greenpoint landmark. They didn’t seem to comprehend what I was telling them and headed in the opposite direction— but that’s not really the point here. Rather, I Greenpointer, relished the opportunity to be (once again) an ambassador for our locality’s best known, um, assets. More importantly it served as a reminder that I have not visited “the gals” in a while. This morning I did. Follows are a few highlights. Enjoy!
You know spring has arrived in the Garden Spot when the Coney Island whitefish have come to spawn! Ah, nature…
P.S.: On a related note I received a wonderful missive this afternoon from a fellow Greenpoint, Jan, who happens to be vacationing in Hamburg, Germany. He was pleased to report he has spied some bona fide European Shit Tits!
