Greenpoint Photos du Jour: Wet Paint

It would appear that the chaps responsible for the Garden Spot glory that is the “El Blablazo” tree pit have seen fit to give it a little sprucing up in anticipation of this upcoming holiday weekend! Great job, guys!

P.S.: Special thanks go out to Laura Hofmann who not only tipped me off to this, but also took the first photo gracing this post!

Spotted On Clay Street: Genius

As many folks who reside in the Garden Spot or have followed this site for any appreciable period of time can attest: the 11222 loves them some liquor. It should be noted, however, that the imbibing of intoxicating substances is not in and of itself a problem; it is what follows the consumption of said substances (as demonstrated by the above chap spotted by yours truly stopping traffic at the intersection of Greenpoint Avenue and Manhattan Avenue this afternoon) that can create a conundrum. Mind you, this gent is at least upright. The same cannot be said of most of his brethren hereabouts; these individuals have reached (or simply maintain) a level of inebriation which renders all motor function null and void. Thus the question becomes:

How can we give these people mobility?

Well on Clay Street today, gentle readers, yours truly found the answer!

Behold an idea whose time has come: the motorized bar stool!

As you can see this bad boy sports 3.5 horsepower…

is aptly enough called the “Bar Fly” and will (hopefully) be coming to a watering hole or bike lane near you! (Manhattan Avenue or the Pulaski Bridge, perhaps?)

UPDATE, 8:00 p.m.: I have received a most fascinating email!

A chap named Adam (who took the above photograph) writes:

Miss Heather,

So that guy that you photographed stopping traffic on the intersection of greenpoint and manhattan was doing so because he got kicked out of the mcdonalds. I was there having some cheeseburgers with my roommate when, from the corner of my eye, I noticed small plumes of smoke emanating from this guy’s general direction. Upon further inspection I noticed the said gentleman enjoying a cigarette, inside the McDonalds. This photo pretty much sums it up, pure serendipity.

Cheers

NICE.

UPDATE, 9:55 p.m.: It has been brought to my attention that this item can be purchased online. CAVEAT: it’ll cost you.

East Williamsburg Street Art du Jour: Enzo & Nio

It would appear that Enzo & Nio (the duo responsible for these pieces) have been quite busy lately! If they are reading this tome (and I suspect they will) I would like them to know a great many people find these works quite amusing. For example: the gentlemen who were exiting the building where the lattermost item is located. One their number was kind enough to point out that the fire arm in this youngster’s grip is a Thompson submachine gun. Shortly thereafter he cheerfully added:

I had one while fighting in the hills of Albania for three years!

It is moments such as this, gentle readers, that truly make operating this web site worthwhile.
