Bedford Avenue Absolut Watch: Small Victory

Filed under: 11211, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 

Some of you might recall that last week I made the acquaintance of the above gentleman. He was painting an advertisement for Absolut Brooklyn on Bedford Avenue. In the course of our conversation I pointed out to him that there was a certain, um, irregularity regarding the numeric order of two adjacent row houses. More specifically I pointed out that they were numbered “400” and “387” respectively and stated:

…In any case you might want to fix that. May I suggest you make the building on the right “398″?

Well today I happened to be back on Bedford…

and I had to know:

Did he or didn’t he (take my advice)?

The answer is…

a qualified yes!

Hey, it isn’t perfection but at least it is a step on the right direction.

P.S.: While I am on the subject, WTF is this about?

  4. Question: is that even legal? Our block was graced with a Ford Prius “mural” for a few weeks this winter. How is that different from a billboard?

  6. It would be interesting it see if this is legal. It is my understanding most billboards (which this more or less is) in this city are illegal.

Tell me what you're thinking...
