Ann Kansfield writes today, November 4, 2012 at 10:20 p.m.:

Could you please post this for me? Thanks. We just got a request from Councilman Brad Lander’s office: 400 lunches are needed for medically frail seniors staying in the shelter at the Armory. We need them delivered by 1pm. Here’s the plan: show up at the Reformed Church 136 Milton St. at 9am. If you can, please bring bread, fruit, beverages, etc. We’ll be working hard on this from 9 am to noon. At noon, we’ll pack them in my car and drive them over. For those of you staying up late, feel free to bake cookies, brownies, etc. and drop them off tomorrow morning. Pastor Ann is going to attempt to coordinate this, since Ann Carroll needs a break. So please, be patient with her. If anyone is good at organizing stuff like this, feel free to let her know and she’ll gladly put you in charge. Thanks for all the great work. Please forward this around as I’m a little worried we might not have enough volunteers since most folks are going back to work and it’s early in the day tomorrow.

Gladly posted. Thanks Ann!

HURRICANE SANDY: AFTER THE STORM

I went to the Rockaways in Queens yesterday. I have no words to describe what I saw. I have posted more pictures of the surreal scenery that hurricane Sandy’s left behind on my blog : wp.me/p15ejd-fW

New York Shitty Feral Furniture Watch: North 10 Street Al Fresco Living Suite, Revisited

Another sunny (if brisk) day, in North Brooklyn, another walk. And another dispatch as to how the North 10th Street “rustic” living room suite is faring. As you can see the sectional to the right has been moved.

It has also been tagged.

For those of you who are keeping count, this arrangement has been in effect for at least 24 days. The current record holder for feral furniture goes to this specimen on Meserole Street: 53 days.

P.S.: While I am on the subject of matters Department of Sanitation and Department of Transportation, what’s up with this?

Anyone?

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. He was headed to the Church of the Ascension (which you may recall is operating a food drive for our friends in need as a result of hurricane Sandy). He too was less than pleased about about the state of mass transit hereabouts.

5 Days after Sandy, Rockaway Beach, NY

This image hails from Rockaway Beach and comes courtesy of the camera of Eric Lau Kwan Tai. Although I gave the following a mention on this site yesterday I will do so again: our very own 94th Precinct has an officer who calls Rockaway Beach his home. Per the Commanding Officer himself, Deputy Inspector Hurson, any and all who wish to do are encouraged to leave donations at the 94th Precinct for this fellow to distribute to families in need. Let’s do it, Greenpointers!
