Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Java Street Pop-Up Park

Ever had one of those moments when a something— let’s say gut instinct— tells you:
Something has changed here.
Well, I had one such moment today while visiting the Java Street Pop-Up Park.
No gentle readers, I am not making reference to the fence which has found its way into the East River. That came to my attention on October 8th. No, this is something else.
There used to be something here as I recall. A park bench, perhaps?
Why yes, that’s what was there!!! I wonder where it went?
Oh, I see it has joined its friend the fence for a dip in the East River.
Impressive. But of course, I doubt this would have been possible had the fence been repaired in a timely fashion. But it wasn’t—- so now we have this vision to greet visitors disembarking from the East River Ferry. I am certain it will work wonders for our burgeoning tourism industry.
I imagine it is only a matter of time before a goose gets hurt on the barbed wire on said fence. For all I know this may have happened already. It’s not like they have the ability to call 911…
