Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: On The Waterfront
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Needing a break from the rigors of moving, this morning yours truly decided a walk on our waterfront was in order. When I availed myself of the “V.I.P. Entrance” (as seen above) to the Java Street pop-up park I had the eerie feeling I was not alone. Sure enough, I looked to my left and discerned my instincts were spot-on.
Is that man doing what I think he is doing?
I asked myself. Sure enough, he was.
Hey, at least he had the decency to employ a water bottle as a receptacle as opposed to simply letting it rip. In any case and in closing, this is as good an opportunity as any to note that I have received word from the fine folks at the East River Ferry that after negotiations with the owner of the pier (and this property) they will be implementing a number of wonderful improvements to the pier proper and the surrounding environs. This includes addressing security issues as manifest with the “VIP entrance”, providing a winter shelter for ferry goers and much, much more. Now that’s some much-needed good news!
