Greenpoint Photo du Jour: 130 Greenpoint Avenue

Greenpoint Avenue 11/10/07

Some of you might recognize the building in the background. Greenpoint’s first “hipster bar” Splendid, once inhabited this space. I celebrated a birthday there once. As was my habit at the time, I jammed the jukebox with Van Halen’s “Unchained”. Over and over. Strangely enough, the hipsters didn’t like it too much.

This, my, special occasion was capped by an exploding manhole. On Greenpoint Avenue, by virtue of Con Edison, not the ever glorious David Lee Roth.

One break, coming up!

  2. I’m anything but a crazed tree-hugger, but – way to gaudy up a harmless tree. Bloomberg’s tree initiative disapproves.

  4. I actually like it. That tree has been dead for years, so what’s the harm? 😉

Tell me what you're thinking...
