Culture on the Cheap
Daily Bloomblight: Broken Windows

What had once started out as a rather ambitious (if by East Williamsburg standards) condominium building at 390 Lorimer Street appears to have fallen on hard times.
Very hard times. Among the niceties to be found here (and I do encourage each and every one of you to check this place out) are:
1. an incinerated cushion of some kind
2. a television set with “added value”
3. an open invitation for squatters
As a matter of fact, 390 Lorimer already has some residents. Pigeons have nested in this duct work. I would hazard to guess this may very well the most expensive aviary in New York City history. And to think some people have the temerity to think our fair Mayor doesn’t care about nature— who needs 1,000,000 trees when our feathered friends can have a luxury condo? Only the best for north Brooklyn!
I could go on and on about quality of life issues and how this administration has failed its constituents. I won’t. Instead I’ll leave you with this epitaph which someone has seen fit to thoughtfully inscribe on this failed piece of real estate speculation.
