Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Happy Halloween!

Halloween al a Manhattan Avenue nys

I encountered these two finely dressed fellows on the Avenue this afternoon. They should get all the candy as far as I am concerned. After all, they’re on a mission from God.

Have a safe and happy Halloween, folks!

Chapter One nys

It is rare that I find myself mumbling “There’s something you do not see everyday”. Greenpoint is host to a great number of oddities. This is part of its charm. However, this item (which is located on Huron Street) did just that. This piece (which is signed by “Steven”) reads as follows:

Grandpa hangs his Japanese flag while World War II is going on.

“Grandpa” sounds like one hell of an interesting guy. It should be noted that the flag in question, and I can assure you “Steven” is being quite modest, is the war flag for the Japanese Imperial Army. Yup. I can only imagine what Chapter Two will bring. I am not sure I want to find out…

It would appear the Department of Buildings would like to have a look around 981 Manhattan Avenue. One has to wonder if the recent visit by the Fire Department 981 4 cropped nyshas anything to do with this. I suppose we’ll find out soon enough. As some of you may recall 981 Manhattan Avenue is where the Salvation Army, which has been closed since October 1st, was located. The premises proper has been for sale since September 15th. All of this is apparently news to the folks at Brownstoner. Go figure.

Cheers!
