Attention all north ‘Point motorists! Please pay attention to this post and please circulate it to your brethren.
See the above parking space? DO NOT park there. Sure, it may appear to be a legal place to park— the white line cordoning it off would certainly indicate as much— but it is not. For the last week I have witnessed our local meter maids ticketing cars in this space with extreme prejudice. I have seen motorists protest that this space is legal, they paid the meter, etc. All to no avail. Inasmuch as I can understand (this is not exactly my area of expertise), the park sign was moved one space to the north. Hence rendering this space (white line or otherwise) into an ex-parking space. Spare yourself a parking ticket and a lot of aggravation and do not park here.
(a citizen explains this nugget of absurdity to a dismayed motorist)
That is all…
UPDATE, 12:02 pm: our beleaguered motorist has left and sure enough another fellow has fallen into the trap!

Yes, the bus stop was moved from the end of the block (Manhattan and India) one storefront down. Per Assemblyman Lentol, a Citi Bike station will not be going there but rather there will be some construction. Therefore, the buses need extra space.
So there have you!
T & N Wine and Liquor’s latest window display has been the source of considerable interest to passersby this morning. Chris, this establishment’s proprietor, has assured me he’ll be adding blood later. That’s Valentine’s Day in the Garden Spot for you…
UPDATE, 2:29 p.m.: Chris kept his word…

This bit of Easter cheer comes from (where else?) T & N Wine and Liquor. Happy Easter, Greenpointers!
After I took the above images a couple of male passerbys remarked:
I wonder if he’ll put live chicks and bunnies in there again?
It would appear the cranktabulous proprietor of this establishment, Chris, has embarked upon his latest opus!

As far as window displays go for this establishment this is pretty understated. Nonetheless, you gotta love the Santa decanters: a yuletide gift begetting a Greenpoint king— or queen!

I’m a big fan of your blog, a while back you posted a picture of an AK-47 shaped vodka bottle (sure brings a new meaning to shooting vodka huh!?). Do you happen to remember where that was? I’ve gotta see this for myself. Anyhow keep up the great work on the blog, its great to see the pics from our backyard!
This item can (still) be found in the window of T & N Wine and Liquor along with a box advertising “Armenian Adam”.
