New York Shitty Day Starter: Greenpointer Spotted Using Newtown Creek Park

Yesterday our two week tour de force of New York City’s sights (and smells) took Mr. Heather and I to the Nature Walk. This may not be everyone’s idea of how to spend a lovely September afternoon but I suspect I have proven by now that we are not “everyone”: we are Greenpointers. As we made the final stretch to the Garden Spot’s gold green coast we were surprised to see we were not alone: we had stumbled upon a gentleman in the process of his daily workout.


After doing a few sets of curls (he came prepared with free weights) he proceeded to do a few sets push-ups. This is not an uncommon sight at McCarren Park, in fact it is pretty common. But this is not McCarren Park: this is a park located on the premises of the east coast’s largest waste treatment facility.

Maybe this chap wanted a little privacy? Regardless, he was an incredibly nice guy!

  2. The Y is closed this week for annual cleaning, maybe he’s temporarily displaced.

  4. That’s hilarious! I bet he was as surprised to see YOU as you were to see him.

Tell me what you're thinking...
