A Rather Unusual Request

I just got this in from a reader who calls himself “Olympia“. He writes:

I wanted to tell you… about a fun surprise in the neighborhood I’ve just done for my girlfriend, that I’d love your help publicizing if you’re willing.

My girlfriend moved to Connecticut from Greenpoint last year. She misses it terribly, and constantly pines for the days spent with friends in the neighborhood. For her birthday this year, I have installed a life-sized wooden cutout of her at the southeast corner of Franklin and Noble Street. I am asking anyone who can to go to Greenpoint and photograph themselves with the Birthday Girl, and then, email or pix message the photo to birthdaygirl08(at)gmail(dot)com. Soon she will have an entire album of images of herself and many, many friends partyting in Greenpoint! I will also be uploading all images to my flickr account, so all can watch as the piece progresses.

If you’d be willing to publish a little something on your blog about this, it would really increase the number of visitors to the project, and really help make her birthday something truly special.

So there have you. If any of you have the time, why not mosey on down to Franklin and Noble and get your picture taken with the birthday girl? Speaking for myself, I am very eager to see how this project unfolds. It is a terrific idea!

  2. (shudders) I’ve done the North-Brooklyn-to-Connecticrap move before. My sympathies go out to Olympia’s friend.

    I wish her luck, and a speedy return.

  4. not sure when this happened BUT as i walked by the cut-out at around 8:45am, i noticed she is now spray-painted gray and with a sticker plastered across her face reading: STAY IN CONNECTICUT. Yikes.

Tell me what you're thinking...
