Fedders Friday: Fedders Claus

I can think of no better way to celebrate this, the last Fedders Friday of 2009 that the previous festive display from Monitor Street. I especially like how (in the latter image) baby Jesus is not only watched over by magi but also ADT. There will be no breaking of the eighth commandment at this here house folks!

December 25 may have come and gone but I couldn’t resist passing along this great photograph taken by Lisacat on Christmas Day. I’m not too certain if this is “street legal” but it is nonetheless Greenpoint at its very finest!

Williamsburg Video Du Jour: Last Gasp

Tonight I though I would polish off Christmas 2008 with a couple of photographs courtesy a la the Mister (from right here in Greenpoint!) and one of the most obnoxious display of holiday spirit I have ever seen. It hails from North 6th Street and well, seeing (and listening) is believing.

Wouldn’t you love to be this person’s neighbor? I for one prefer this more subdued but curiously rave-like Hannukah set up on Franklin Street.

A Very Greenpoint Christmas

As promised, I have started uploading a bunch of Christmas goodness from the Garden Spot of the Universe!* I’ll be adding more photographs to the following slide show so be sure to check back in this evening (among other things I’ll be adding what is perhaps the most annoying holiday display known to mankind). Enjoy!

Happy Holidays everybody!

Miss Heather

*And yes, Williamsburg too.

Merry Christmas From New York Shitty!

Later today I will be tossing up a bunch of nifty Yuletide pix from around the Garden Spot for your viewing pleasure. Now if you don’t mind I’m off to open presents!

‘Tis The Season: Special Transportation Edition

December 23, 2008 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic 

Anyone who lives Greenpoint (particularly around McGolrick Park) is familiar with the house at left. It is located on Nassau Avenue and is without argument one of the more endearingly quirky landmarks our fair burgh has to offer. The previous having been said, it goes without saying this edifice is a reflection of its owner. Whether this gentleman (who I have nicknamed the “Karate Krishna”) knows it or not, he is a Greenpoint celebrity of sorts.

Many stories about about this gentleman (as seen at right) abound, such as his habit doing Tai Chi in his backyard every morning. God only knows his political views (which he has seen fit to expostulate upon in the front windows of his shop) are interesting enough. I cannot rightfully say I agree with most of them, but how can I not love a guy who takes his grandchildren around the neighborhood in a tricked-out carriage such as this? While beating a tambourine, no less!

Needless to say I was absolutely thrilled when I walked down Nassau Avenue today and discovered he had souped it up for the season!

Behold, a very special Greenpoint sleigh!

The four foot tall inflatable candy cane is my personal favorite. Although the addition of a umbrella handle for greater steering control is a nice touch as well.

Here’s a view of the back.

I don’t know who you are, “Karate Krishna”, but I want to thank you on behalf of all my fellow Greenpointers for giving us a something to smile about this holiday season!
