Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Java Street

(Or: Election Day Special)

Better late than never, I say. This is one of yours truly’s favorite things. I have given it the moniker “Stoophenge” and it can be found on Java Street. True to form, it is (still) topped with Halloween goodness. Trust me it gets better, not worse, as the pumpkins begin to rot.

Anyhoo, it is a good as a reminder as any to get out and vote today you all!

Greenpoint Photos Du Jour, Part II: The Mean Girls Of Salem

It would appear I was a mite bit hasty deeming Monitor Street as the “go to” in Greenpoint in terms of Halloween decor. Of course I have never seen Greenpoint as one monolithic community. It’s actually at least two, arguably three, sub-communities. This contender hails from my corner of the 11222 and it is MAGNIFICENT! Without further ado, I present “The Mean Girls Of Salem”!

Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Halloween Selections

They don’t decorate in this neighborhood like they used to, but there’s good stuff around if you know where to look. This year my pick is Monitor Street between Driggs and Meeker (which is where all this goodness can be seen). The Demon Baby House for the win.

For obvious reasons. It needs to be seen in person to truly be experienced. Cheers!

If you need it— or have never even thought about it— Manhattan Avenue has it. Be it used pillows with “credible” hair or life coaching which can easily be had via any dysfunctional familial/intimate relationship, WE HAVE IT ALL.

P.S.: That smell isn’t hell, it’s Greenpoint.
