Greenpoint Fashion Watch: Thomas

I have seen this chap around the neighborhood for some time. Alas, I never worked up the gumption to talk to him— until today. I’m glad I did. Nice to meet you, Thomas— and thank you for gracing the Garden Spot with your inimitable style!

Found At Calyer Street & Manhattan Avenue

No indication is made as to when this lass was found but I imagine it was in the last day or so. If any of you, dear readers, know to whom this lass belongs— or care to give her a forever home— please contact her good Samaritan at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!

Freeman Street

As promised follows are some highlights from my sojourn around north ‘Point this afternoon. Aside from the two above-depicted houses (which can be found on Freeman Street between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard and are lacking electricity) the damage was minimal. Rather, it would appear that the Garden Spot has (inasmuch as is possible) regained its sense of normalcy. As you will see we are enjoying our (scant) public spaces, the El Blablazo tree has survived; some hapless soul was (is?) awaiting access to the Box House Hotel and I even met a dog named “Kitty”. While not depicted, Jerzy (AKA: the chap who lives in a truck on Franklin Street), is safe and sound— if quite busy! I suspect he feels the same way we all do: it’s nice to have our neighborhood— replete in all its glorious eccentricity— back. On that note and without further ado, enjoy!

When encountered this despondent pup, I could not help but wonder why the sad face. I mean, Irene was more “talk” than action.  Then I turned around— and the answer became obvious:

Irene took out his favorite tree!

Ihave been long remiss in posting this, so here it is: tomorrow, August 2nd, starting at 6:00 p.m. the 94th Precinct will be hosting its annual “National Night Out”. “Free food”, “police displays” and “fun” are in the offing. Check it out!

When I saw this dapper chap at the intersection of Franklin Calyer Street this afternoon I had to capture his amazing sense of style for posterity. Note the Jack Daniel’s belt bucket and headgear. Magnificent!
