The Word On The Street: Beautiful

Yes, gentle readers, stuff such is this is why Community Board 1 Brooklyn is among the dirtiest in the entire city. One would think with an unpaid fine of $4,000 these folks could afford to hire someone with a weed whacker, Then again— why should they? There are clearly no consequences for their actions. I’ve written it before and I’ll write it again:
if the leaders of our community want to attract tourists, perhaps they should crackdown on speculators/developers who do not maintain their properties, illegally occupy the sidewalk and/or street with their “accoutrements”*, etc.? Is it just me or are our electeds sort of missing the forest for the trees here?
In the hope of getting the point across I am initiating a new feature: Community Board 1 Bloomblight of the week. To this end I have created a photo pool on Flickr exclusively for this endeavor. It goes without saying I will also take submissions via email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Please be sure to provide a street address. Now let’s get this party started north Brooklynites!
