Culture on the Cheap
50 Cent Goes Fowl!
I glanced at the New York Observer’s breaking story about 50 Cent gracing the Garden Spot last Friday but quickly forgot about it. Thankfully my buddy at Brooklyn11211 set the record (and my prodigal Greenpoint ass) straight:
Actually, the show will be based at 118 Greenpoint Avenue, a couple blocks up from the Greenpoint waterfront. And about a dozen blocks from the nearest public access to the waterfront.
(Three years after the Greenpoint-Williamsburg Rezoning, and there still is no construction on the Greenpoint waterfront, and no public access to the Greenpoint waterfront. Transmitter Park is the closest to being reality, and that is still on the drawing boards.)
I wonder how Fifty and his crew will like living next to a poultry slaughterhouse?
I’m not a reality (or any kind of) television person, but I am looking forward to this. 50 Cent meets Scarano meets chickens. I have no doubt the feathers will fly!
UPDATE: This has been debunked! See comments.
