Greenpoint Recession Watch: The Viridian

This weekend, much to our amazement, the Mister and I saw signs of actual activity at the Viridian. Well, perhaps “activity” is a bit of an overstatement: we saw a 5’4″ gentleman wearing an undershirt and a pair of jeans hanging out in the lobby.

Maybe that’s the concierge?

The Mister quipped. I have to confess on occasion even he can roll out a good one liner. But I digress.

As I was walking by this afternoon I spied a man on the premises doing something. Exactly what I do not know: he did not appear to have any tools. Yes sir, things must be getting pretty lean down at 110 Green Street nowadays. Hell, they cannot even afford “No Parking” signs. So they improvise!

  6. About two weeks ago, I walked by and the guy was NOT wearing a shirt. He was sitting at the desk reading a newspaper. The group I was walking with wondered if he was wearing anything down below. Sitting at the desk, he looked like a naked doorman.

  8. Maybe he (they?) got some of that “economic stimulus” money I have heard so much about?

  10. Makes sense that they’d have someone there to keep on eye on the building, and also that with no income coming from it they’d do that in the cheapest way possible. That is, a short guy in an undershirt instead of a uniformed security service.

Tell me what you're thinking...
