Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Manhattan Avenue

A little value-added from my sojourn to the Manhattan Avenue Kayak Launch this morning. It should settle the question once and for all as to the whereabouts of Scooby Doo. He is under a car on Manhattan Avenue between Clay and Dupont Streets and appears to be hammered as fuck. Possibly via the contents of the now empty bottle of tequila in the adjacent tree pit.

Cheers!

Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: 45

I encountered this work of art while running errands in the neighborhood today. I do not think I need to state who the person depicted is. We know. The whole world knows, unfortunately.

As a fellow artist I have to say the rendering and line work here is superb. This person has clearly received training in that respect. The incorporation of a drainage pipe— which has discharged some vile substance,  quite fitting— as his mouth is nothing short of inspired. In fact, like this so much:

  1. I have seen fit to post it here.
  2. I am not disclosing its location.
  3. I have created two postcards for sale featuring this lovely image. I have priced them quite reasonable at $1.50 and $1.75 a pop. You can view and purchase them here and here.

Cheers!

At long last our fair city has gotten a long overdue dose of the white stuff (snow). It is a perfect day to curl up with a book and perhaps take a tipple. However I would advise you, gentle readers, to please do so indoors.

P.S.: Note that our prodigal Teddy seems to be also enjoying a fair number of books. Perhaps this lot has become a library of sorts? If so, I have a humble suggestion as to whom it should be dedicated!

So there have you. You can view this letter in its entirety by clicking here or here. Thanks Joe Lentol! That said, I have to wonder where our State Senator, Martin Malave Dilan, stands on this matter? Anyone care to ask him?

Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Happy Halloween!

I encountered these two finely dressed fellows on the Avenue this afternoon. They should get all the candy as far as I am concerned. After all, they’re on a mission from God.

Have a safe and happy Halloween, folks!
