50 Cent Goes Fowl!

Filed under: Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg 

I glanced at the New York Observer’s breaking story about 50 Cent gracing the Garden Spot last Friday but quickly forgot about it. Thankfully my buddy at Brooklyn11211 set the record (and my prodigal Greenpoint ass) straight:

Actually, the show will be based at 118 Greenpoint Avenue, a couple blocks up from the Greenpoint waterfront. And about a dozen blocks from the nearest public access to the waterfront.

(Three years after the Greenpoint-Williamsburg Rezoning, and there still is no construction on the Greenpoint waterfront, and no public access to the Greenpoint waterfront. Transmitter Park is the closest to being reality, and that is still on the drawing boards.)

I wonder how Fifty and his crew will like living next to a poultry slaughterhouse?

I’m not a reality (or any kind of) television person, but I am looking forward to this. 50 Cent meets Scarano meets chickens. I have no doubt the feathers will fly!

UPDATE: This has been debunked! See comments.

  2. I almost had a heart attack until I read (from the source link comments):

    Broker says:

    This story was reported in error & the source is not a viable one. No such deal was ever made. If it was, somebody owes me 55k.

    Anonymous says:

    Broker you are correct. This story is false. However if you are interested in viewing one of these loft condominiums please visit http://www.canvaslofts.com.

    Since when do brokers actually have good news?

  4. Two recent comments on the Observer article — one by a user using the tag “Broker” and the second by someone including an invalid link to the sales site for the building — state that this story is in error and “no such deal was made.” “Broker” says that if it were true, someone would owe him his commission.

  6. i hope to god this isn’t true because i live directly accross the street from this and it’s bad enough
    to have to deal with noise from “lipstick jungle” filming down the street. there is enough noise and crap going on on greenpoint ave and now this!? i hope this story isn’t true.
