Quicklink: Greenpoint Gets Some Love

A couple of weeks ago I spoke to a reporter, one Billie Cohen, regarding Time Out New York’s upcoming “Why I (Heart) NYC” issue. When she asked me what makes Greenpoint unique, well, the answer was obvious. My favorite quote is as follows:

Where else, not just in the city but in the world, are you going to have a waste-treatment plant that not only has a visitor’s center, but has a nature walk? If you have to pin me down as to park spaces I like to go—that’s it. Why do I like the wastewater-treatment plant? Why do I like the Shit Tits? Why do I like the visitor’s center? On the one hand, it is so absurd, but on the other hand it’s actually really neat. All these new condos that are being built here—why is it that we have more thought put into the aesthetics of [New York’s largest] waste-treatment plant—that, as I understand it, handles the most poop in the entire city—than the buildings that we live in?

Yup, yours truly was in particularly good form that day. Check it out!

  4. The fact this made it into the print edition (along with The Thing) as well is pure gravy!
