From The New York Shitty Inbox: Lights Down At Nassau Avenue & McGuinness Boulevard?
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Per a tipster:
the light on Nassau and McGuinness is totally out. I called 911 at 7:20 and no one showed up – except the cops who drive through the knot of people/cars about 7:30 and didn’t stop. I went out to get wine about 8pm and there was still no one there. Its gonna be bad.
I walked up to Nassau/McG at 720 heading home, lights were totally out. traffic was bad and impatient, so were the peds/bikes (yes bikes). I called 911, they took the ca(ll), but I got a feeling they thought I was calling about a single light bulb being out. Waited ten more minutes, worried that someone was going to blast through, trucks, cabs, etc. Other people called the pct. Patrol car w/ 4 cops (not sure if it was a 94th) wormed its way through the knot headed north, didn’t even stop only blipped the siren…
As of 8:43 it is still K.O.ed. Be careful over there, folks!
