Sleephenge: The 8th Wonder Of The World
The last two weeks I have noticed A LOT of discarded mattresses gracing the sidewalks of Greenpoint. Initially I chalked it up to “moving day”. Now I have my doubts.
I encountered this impressive bedding behemoth— the Robert Scarano of sleeper super-structures— on Franklin Street between Green and Huron last night. I was aghast.
Even a chap walking his dog (as seen at the far left in this photograph) was taken by its majestic presence.
Egypt can keep its pyramids (as beautiful and wonderfully engineered as they are). It’s the 21st Century now and we need to adjust our expectations/criteria accordingly (READ: downward).
Behold The 8th Wonder of The World: Greenpoint’s very own Colossus of Abodes. Once slept on by humans, now it is affordable housing for bedbugs.
