Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Something Neat!

Looking Up

 

Today yours truly ran errands. More specifically: I ventured into today’s post-nasal drip to acquire ingredients for this upcoming Thanksgiving’s meal. While the weather was hardly enjoyable, I spied a number of things which tickled my fancy during my peregrinations. This (which can be found on Leonard Street at Greenpoint Avenue) was one of them. One has to admire the whimsy and ingenuity at play. A number of items have been “re-purposed” to make this creation, among them: lamp shades, cans and a malt liquor bottle to name a few. I would be remiss if I did not point out the Zywiec cartons crafted into fins. Well done, fellow Greenpointer!

Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: Laundry Day

I was asked recently by a curious citizen exactly what is slated to grace this rather sizable lot (which is located at Leonard Street and Meeker Avenue). As it would happen I know because I attend the Community Board Land Use Committee (ULURP) in which this is discussed. Prepare yourselves: it’s good news!

There will be two residential apartment buildings on this property: one will be market rate, the other affordable housing. The reason this was discussed at a “ULURP” meeting is the developer wanted permission to add residential units to the previous in exchange for building the latter. I saw the plans, materials to be used, etc., and I have to say what they have in mind is mighty nice. This is really saying something given Karl Fischer is the architect. I was especially pleased to learn the garden area they plan to build-out will be accessible to/shared by both buildings!
