I cannot tell a lie.

When I see shit like this (which hails from South 5th Street and Wythe Avenue) I get depressed…

..and angry.

Really angry. It was a good thing I decided to swing by 133 South 1 Street as a solicitation I discovered there cheered me up considerably.

Anyone care to hazard a guess (or a limb) as to what kind of canines are in the offing?

Spotted On Bedford Avenue: Nice Moves

Only on Bedford Avenue would a “moving company” advertisement look like a personals ad. What I am particularly curious about is the “pricing flexible depending on circumstances” aspect of this offer . If anyone elects to hire these upstarts I would be very grateful if you would tender a full review of their services to yours truly. Including how well “Frankie” can dance.

New York Shitty Photos Du Jour: East Williamsburg Gothic

Yesterday, despite my better judgment (90+ degree weather and the aftermath of a cold do not mix), I took a walk. I went to the no-man’s land some call Greenpoint and others call East Williamsburg. Over the years I have developed a cynical disdain neighborhood taxonomy. This is due in large part to the real estate industry.

What I saw was the past, present and future of north Brooklyn. Do we, as a community, want to be the same or enjoy being different? Should we accept derelict testaments to speculation and greed such as 64 Maspeth Avenue as being a fact of life?

Crosstown Local Photo Du Jour: For Rent

If this sheet rock and Sharpie marker solicitation (which hails from outside the Keap Street entrance of the G and L trains at Metropolitan Avenue) is any indication I’d say times are getting pretty tough in the ‘Burg. The asking rent for these mystery digs has been excised. Anyone care to place a bid?
