New York Shitty Slide Show du Jour, Part II: Business As Usual

Freeman Street

As promised follows are some highlights from my sojourn around north ‘Point this afternoon. Aside from the two above-depicted houses (which can be found on Freeman Street between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard and are lacking electricity) the damage was minimal. Rather, it would appear that the Garden Spot has (inasmuch as is possible) regained its sense of normalcy. As you will see we are enjoying our (scant) public spaces, the El Blablazo tree has survived; some hapless soul was (is?) awaiting access to the Box House Hotel and I even met a dog named “Kitty”. While not depicted, Jerzy (AKA: the chap who lives in a truck on Franklin Street), is safe and sound— if quite busy! I suspect he feels the same way we all do: it’s nice to have our neighborhood— replete in all its glorious eccentricity— back. On that note and without further ado, enjoy!

  2. Great job on the storm coverage, Miss H. Your Hurricane Irene wrap-up was worth more than all the zany weathermen and cable news marathons put together. Glad Greenpoint looks like it came through OK, and I’ll be rooting for the baby squirrel.

  4. Thanks— quite frankly I have had my fill. The wind kept me up most of the night! I am still burdened, however, with the of the untimely death of the Vagina Tree. She was snatched from us too soon!

    In all seriousness, I hope they get power restored to those houses on Freeman Street… and SOON!

Tell me what you're thinking...
