Queens Slide Show du Jour: D.U.P.A.L.I.C. & Beyond

59 Street Bridge

Yesterday was a rather trying one for yours truly. First it was my site crashing at midnight. This made me rather unhappy. Awakening to find it was still down made me unhappier. Realizing however this was due to factors way beyond my control I decided to revisit one of my favorite places…

Polish Paradise

Polish Paradise located in scenic D.U.P.A.L.I.C. (Down Under the Pulaski At Long Island City). As always, it did not disappoint.

Pylon

For starters, this is without argument the largest pot hole yours truly has ever laid eyes upon.

VERY SPECIAL

And of course there is the extensive array of empty liquor containers to be found at this location. I was particularly impressed with this 1.75 liter bottle of Hennessy. That stuff ain’t cheap! Arguably the most provocative part of my trek came to pass in a rather desolate part of Long Island City. It was there I was somewhat startled to hear someone shout:

Hey lady, why aren’t you in Greenpoint?

This came courtesy of the inimitable proprietress of Word Books: Christine Onorati. In any case (and without further ado) here are some highlights from my journey. NOTE/SPOILER: There’s some pretty neat street art at the end. Enjoy!

Williamsburg, Brooklyn; New York

A city that never sleeps?!? I beg to differ. If north Brooklyn is any indication they’re sleeping all over the damned place. I christen this arrangement (a chaise lounge replete with pillow and comforter) the Metroproletariat Hostel.

I thought you’d like these.

The sky is gorgeous tonight. I decided to go up to the roof to take some photos. Good thing I went upstairs. I didn’t know we had a guest. The guest evidently went through the trouble of cleaning the landing, folding the blanket and tucking their pillow under the head of the faux bed. I hope my first impression of the guest is correct. I don’t want to have to evict anyone in this cold. Needless to say, (but I’ll say it anyway) N. Greenpoint IS seeing an increase in homelessness.

Agreed.

The above photograph was taken this evening at our local McDonald’s.
