New York Shitty Day Ender: From Greenpoint To Greenport
Today yours truly took a much-needed day of R&R outside the confines of New York Shitty. Our destination: Greenport. Aside from being located on Long Island and having “green” in its name this burgh has little in common with the place I call home. The change of scenery was— truth be told— rather nice.
Greenport is nice. This is perhaps why I got the hairy eyeball from a mother and her child in the ladies room at a restaurant there. What constitutes “Greenpoint casual” (an ensemble comprised of camouflage pants, Mao hat atop multi-hued hair, a hoodie and a tank top commemorating the 2009 Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel) was clearly a source of curiousity to them. So it goes. Follows is a mini slide show of highlights from my trip. Enjoy!
On that note, dear readers, I’m off to retire for the evening. I’ve had a LONG day.
