This morning as I was walking past 77 Commercial Street I had the feeling I was being watched. Sure enough, I was!

P.S.: Special thanks go out to Eva and Lisa for tipping me off to this. Thanks!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Bright Lights?

August 4, 2012 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, WTF 

A Manhattan Avenue resident writes August 4, 2012 at 2:21 a.m. (in an email entitled “UFO lights”):

Hi Heather!
I laid down to go to sleep tonight like usual. But as soon as my head hit the pillow my eyes met up with solar bright light coming into my window. They seem to be coming from the direction of Commercial St. Do you know WTF it is? Since I’m on the fifth floor, the light has to be pretty damn bright to annoy me.

If I had to hazard a guess I’d say this was a film/photo shoot (be it sanctioned or otherwise). If anyone— be they extra-terrestrial or otherwise— has the 411 about this please share via comments or email at: missheather (at) the greenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will remain anonymous if you so desire. Thanks!
