Hello Ms. Heather,

I am writing this to seek your help to find our missing cat in our neighborhood (Greenpoint).

If you could take a look at our craigslist page for our missing cat information and contribute somehow to your blog to get more attention, that would be much appreciated.

We really appreciate your help.

Done! If anyone has seen Bacon or knows of her whereabouts please contact Jason via email at or call (917) 554-0279/(347) 266 0997.


UPDATE, 9:57 PM: I have received word that Bacon has found her way safely back home. YAY!

I would never entertain the idea of cooling off in the East River no matter how high the temp reached. These four teenagers disagree…

I’ve been away from Brooklyn for about a year. I don’t think the River is much cleaner than when I left. So, what the fuck?
And, yes, these kids could read that sign in English.

Hope all is well with you…

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: The Word On The Street


As spied on Java Street. Happy Friday everybody!

Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Manhattan Avenue


I cannot think of a better way to while away a lovely Friday afternoon in the Garden Spot than, say, doing a dozen chin-ups courtesy of a crosswalk signal. Go out there and get ripped, Greenpoint!

GGscI have long been remiss in checking in on our community’s newest podcast series: Bittersweet Brooklyn. Thankfully, the Greenpoint Gazette just published an article about this fine endeavor and the folks behind it. Those who care to do so can read it here!

Otherwise (and closing on a related note) here’s the latest episode. It is entitled “The Gazette Gets It”. Enjoy!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Much Ado About AC Units


A fellow named Adam writes:

Dear Miss Heather,
This morning, a coworker pointed me to this field guide to AC units on Urban Omnibus. Of course it brought me back to what I remember as your “Articles of Feddersization” piece on New York Shitty some years ago… but I can’t seem to find it. Do I misremember the name? Was it all in my head?

Dying for a link,


To answer Adam’s question: New York Shitty has a category called “Articles of Fedderization”— but that is not the purpose of this post. Rather, I found the above-mentioned tome a rather fun read. So much so I had to document one of my favorite bits of ingenuity: a window unit head secured in place with a copy Webster’s Dictionary and a tome about cultural literacy! Who says reading is a waste of time?
