Spotted At 154 West Street: (Too Cute For Words)

Once in a very blue moon I will see something that will make me stop and say “aw!”. This is one such case. Perhaps Paul is tired of waiting for WNYC Transmitter Park to open so he has taken matters (and a ballpoint pen) into his own hands? To this young man’s credit he has provided a solid date his facility will open. This is of course today.

In this respect this young fellow (and would-be entrepreneur?) has put our Parks Department (which is staffed by adults who seemingly cannot publicly issue a firm opening date for Transmitter Park. Instead it keeps getting pushed back.) to shame. Paul for Community Board 1 Parks Supervisor!

Spotted On West Street: A Very Special Employment Opportunity

This week a friend of mine, upon reading my horoscope, informed me I would have a career opportunity this week. Thus, you can imagine my surprise (subsequent disappointment) when I encountered the above solicitation on West Street this afternoon. While I may be a wee bit too— how shall we say— “long in the tooth” for the above position, I do feel compelled to pass it along here lest any “fun” and “open-minded” Greenpoint gals find it of interest. My advice: it has been your truly’s observation that when a fellow seeks a woman with an open mind, her legs are expected to follow suit.

In closing, this is as sterling an opportunity as any to announce that New York Shitty is looking for interns! Sorry ladies, men need only apply. Those who are curious as to what this prestigious (READ: UNPAID) sinecure entails, please take a moment to watch the following video.

Just kidding.

Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Garden Spot

Take an epidemic of manhole access cover plundering, add a dash of benign neglect and a lot of rain and what do you get? An accidental garden, that’s what!

LAST GASP: WNYC Transmitter Park

UPDATE, 10:17 p.m.: If a commenter is to be believed, this park is not officially open to the public— not that anyone is actually doing anything about it, mind you. He/she writes:

At around 8:30 P.M. today a local lady was calling 911 on all the people in Transmitter Park in Greenpoint because its not open. 311 and the construction comp dont care. She told me they broke the lock on the gate. I told her there is not any lock nor is there a chain. She stilled just continued to call numbers on her cell. lol

Whoops.
