Grammatical error aside, I really like the way this person thinks. The arrow pointing to the offender’s residence is an inspired touch.

Jay Lombard (who discovered and forwarded me this lovely item) notes:

On eagle street… Just a turd’s throw from the shit tits

How very appropriate. What I want to know about is a dog that doesn’t shit!

hi, i just came across this note while walking my own dog, gladys.

notice how he or she spelled “filthy.”

gladys and are not responsible for the rogue shit (found on the corner of herbert and humboldt in greenpoint). it does appear as if gladys was trying to eat it though. she was. i do not condone this behavior.

Let this be a warning to you, rogue dog owners. This is the “new and improved” Greenpoint;we have standards!

East Williamsburg Photo du Jour: Champ

I have featured the work of “Super” from Montrose Avenue on a number of occasions. (You can see the gradual evolution of this sign by clicking here and here.) Needless to say when I saw this, his latest and fifth attempt, I had to pass it along here. The blue ribbon reading “Champ” is a nice touch— and is very well deserved!

East Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: Dear Sir/Madam

dearsir

It would appear the gentrification of Meserole Street is bravely marching on despite the sour economy. Note how the author of this missive not only addresses his (or her) readers as “sir” and “madam” but he even saw fit to laminate his tome. This person is a class act.

To who it may concern & you know who you ARE! There is a LAW prohibiting depositing you dog’s PHOOch! in trash cans other than your OWN. Sence there is a consistant ingonrance of this ON your behalf, I feel obligated to apprise you, this area will be under electronic watch. So when you are charged for violating the law you cannot claim ignorance of it!

So there!

A North 7 Street PSA: NO KARL

fucktard

I was unable to ascertain whether or not this was addressed to north Brooklyn’s architect of choice (Karl Fischer)— but I wouldn’t rule it out. Although the architect of this aborted attempt at a condo appears to be Michael Muroff, who knows? Maybe the author of this missive knows something the Department of Buildings doesn’t? In any case I am pleased to see someone made use of the word “fucktard”.

Morris Park Photos Du Jour: Signs

August 30, 2009 ·
Filed under: Bloomblight, Bronx, Dog Shit Signage 

As I indicated previously, today the Mister and I took our “staycation” to the Bronx. The objective of this trip was partake of real, honest-to-god Italian food in New York City’s lesser known “Little Italy”. I will go into the gustatory part of our trip a little later. This post is going to focus on the great variety of signage to be found in my former stomping grounds.

There were plenty run-of-the-mill signs of pick up your dog poo/stay of my lawn variety to be certain. On the other hand there were a quite few that stood head and shoulders above the others— or simply made you scratch your head and say “What the fuck”? Enjoy!

This is not a sign per se, but it does make light of a failure to communicate.

A very Morris Park stimulus plan.

WOW

It’s the economy stupid!

I cannot find the words to describe this one. That’s why I shot video instead!

Nothing like some good ol’ Bloomblight to bring two boroughs together! (For those of you who are wondering, the inside looks even worse than the outside.) But back to signs— and the strangest pair of messages I have ever seen gracing a single storefront. The following hail from 1084 Morris Park Avenue.

YOUGET

Sure, this one seems simple enough— but look at its companion found six feet to the left.

HIV

The stars-n-stripes, Lady Liberty and… HIV?

And with this puzzler I will conclude this installment of my Morris Park adventure. Next up: a selection of Morrisparkitecture. Stay tuned!
