Culture on the Cheap
Behold, The Other Face of Pistilli Realty!
Having learned from my good buddy over at Greenpointers that some mischievous scamp has seen fit to post an ad on Craigslist admonishing people against moving into the Astral, I thought it might be interesting to share a few photos I took of Pistilli’s Co-op Crapfest in Astoria yesterday. Here they are.
Really, really big. Per Wired New York’s forum, this turd has 188 units.
And if the above fanfare is any indication, they are almost ready for occupancy!
Wouldn’t it be interesting if some “shame on you” type news show asked the shills Pistilli hired to sell this crap if it will have bedbugs and scantily clad ‘models’ like his other property? A property, I will add, which is a registered historic landmark that (per ACRIS) appears to have been mortgaged repeatedly so as to finance the above masterpiece.
Just a thought.
It’s tough being a developer. So the next time any of you Astral tenants whine about mold or bedbugs, be advised that it costs a lot of money to make something look this cheap. Shit, the money Pistilli outlaid on stucco alone is probably equal to the gross domestic product of a developing country.
P.S.: The address for the above development can found by clicking here lest anyone reading this is curious.
P.S. #2: I’d also like to give a big New York Shitty shout-out to my buddies at Bedbuggers for calling Greenpoint “the good-blog capital of Brooklyn”. Thanks!
P.S.#3: I forgot to post this photo of the ass(ier) end of Pistilli Riverview East. Here it is.
