Quicklinks: More Ado About Greenpoint Landing

shitsandwichYou can read DNA.info’s take here (You, go Barbara Vetell!), Gothamist’s here and GWAPP’s¬†(which includes a nice concise list of concerns) here. Do take time to give ’em all a read, Garden Spotters. This “city within a city” has some very severe consequences for our community.

Manhattan Avenue at Eagle Street

I do not know where to even start here, so I’ll leave it at this; lest the “copy” and “graphics” were not a sufficient indication, the sheer quantity of these flyers I saw while walking around the neighborhood today make it quite clear “Tony” is pissed.

And Now A Word From The MTA

That’s right Greenpointers: Crosstown Local service has yet to be restored.* Now factor in the East River Ferry will not be servicing the India Street Pier…

and, well, you get the idea. Plan accordingly, Garden Spotters!

*As it would happen I bumped into our City Councilman, Steve Levin, this morning.
