Some things go beautifully together.

Chocolate and peanut butter, Bogey and Bacall, automotive repair and barbecued ribs— all the previous are examples of perfect pairings. Other things, however, should never be put together.

Waste Treatment Plant

1. Greenpoint’s sewage treatment plant…

Greenpoint Spring Water

which happens to be located on 2. Newtown Creek (above) and…

Poland Springs Depot

and 3. a depot housing delivery trucks for Poland Spring water.

Poland Springs Depot

This is so wrong— and yet, so right— on so many levels.

  2. It’s too obvious…but I had to comment since no one else has, being the compulsive commenter that I am…ok, POLAND = Greenpoint therefore it is only fitting…no need to explain I hope.

    PS- as per your other posts regarding the housing possiblilities along Newtown Creek-my ex boyfriend used to live in the back of a deserted 18 wheeler on the Jersey CIty waterfront and would brag about how much better it was compared to my apt….(until he woke up one evening en route to Philadelphia) It’s good to know that there are options out there…

Tell me what you're thinking...
