No mention of CB1 meeting tomorrow … Did I miss it?
I checked Community Board 1′s handy online calendar and…
sure enough there is a meeting at Community Board 1 tomorrow, April 8th 2014. The Combined Public Hearing and Board Meeting* no less. Whoops.
*Whose agenda you can view here!

Today yours truly decided to take a stroll along the waterfront and see what’s shaking (in addition to the pier).
Unlike my previous visit, the pier was open to the public.
Whether or not it is supposed to be is anyone’s guess.
I’ll leave you, gentle readers, to draw your own conclusions.
I quickly ascertained I was not alone.
Evidence of recent merry-making was spotted.
Welcome to Greenpoint.
For shits and giggles I decided to hang around until the next ferry came by. Sure, we Greenpointers do not have (direct) access to this amenity— but we can wave at it!
For those of you who are wondering Greenpoint has been without ferry service since February 13, 2014. If there were, say, a few luxury residential towers here— more specifically, residents inhabiting said towers who(se wallets) will get the ear of their elected officials— do you honestly think this situation would have been allowed to persist as it has? Really? But of course we do not have luxury towers much less luxury tower residents— at least yet— so we, the hoi polloi, will just have to wait. And wait…

New York Shitty Analysis:
- I never thought I would see the words “McGuinness” and “Mayberry” employed together. Now I have.
- The rather stringent email requirements this person has established is going to require a great deal of creativity on the potential buyer’s part. I am particularly perplexed by the “no work email policy”. If one say, has a job, he/she may be in a better position to have $2,100,000 to buy a house. Just sayin’.
- No looky loos.

One can always depend on this building (which is located at 4th Avenue and East 10 Street) for interesting commentary…
