From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Vet In Greenpoint?

Miss Heather,

This must have sprung up near overnight because I haven’t noticed it all. There’s a new vet opening on nassau and eckford. Maybe you reported on this and I haven’t seen the post, but they are in the phase where the IT guy is involved (he’s who I spoke to there) so they must be pretty far along.

Needless to say I headed down today without delay.

Sure enough, it would appear the Garden Spot is slated to get a veterinarian’s office! I asked the gentleman working atop the scaffolding is he had any idea as to when this establishment was going to open. He said he didn’t know. Given what I saw on the ground floor, I’d say soon.

What’s more, Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital is conveniently located off the Nassau Avenue stop of the G train and the B48 bus! But let’s defer to the experts: the hardworking chaps from National Grid working across the street. They took a keen interest in my keen interest in this establishment. After I offered to take their portrait (because they offered to take mine) we got down to brass tacks.

Me: As far as I know Greenpoint doesn’t have a veterinarian. People have to go to Long Island City or Williamsburg. This is a big deal.
National Grid Dude (talking to one of his comrades): You know, now that I think of it, I haven’t seen a veterinarian office here.
Me: It’s conveniently located near the G train and the B48 bus to boot!
N.G.B.: This is a good location. Smart move on their part.
Me: I’m going to alert my readers to this. I write a blog about north Brooklyn and I’m always getting asked about veterinarians in Greenpoint.
N.G.B.: You write a blog? Cool.
Me: Thanks. By the way, if you haven’t tried Kestane Kebab just down the street, you should. It’s very tasty.

Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital
Opening Date: t.b.d.
111 Nassau Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222

(347) 529-4345

I am pleased to report the National Grid guys have tried Kestane Kebab and found their fare tasty. I advised them to try the lentil soup next time. They promised they would. To be continued?

Miss Heather

  4. It really surprises me that Greenpoint doesn’t have a vet. I usually have to take my dog into Williamsburg to get any sort of medical checkup or attention. Out of all the neighborhoods I’ve walked around in North Brooklyn, Greenpoint has the most dogs far and away. This is very exciting stuff.

Tell me what you're thinking...
