Culture on the Cheap
Just Another Sunday Morning In Greenpoint: Llamas On Parade!
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Stuff That Makes Miss Heather Happy
Today the U.S.S. Monitor Parade— and Greenpoint in general— got some added excitement in the way of a trio of llamas. Those of you who are wondering (and you know who you are) what these critters have to do with the Civil War, I’ll tell you: nothing whatsoever. Rather, a few of the re-enactors participating in today’s festivities happen to operate a llama rescue organization. They decided to bring a few of their furry pals to join the fun. I suspect I speak for many who witnessed today’s procession that this was an inspired decision.
It should also be noted our City Councilman, Steve Levin, demonstrated his Garden Spot street cred by taking it all in stride. Hey, anything can happen in Greenpoint!
