Urban Gravestones, Greenpoint Style

This weekend I discovered— much to my chagrin— that Greenpoint is holding its own regarding the phenomenon that Bed-Stuy Banana so aptly named “urban gravestones”. Here they are.

Dupont Street

Frosty Freeze, R.I.P.

Java Street

A tribute to “Revzi” can be found the corner of Java and West Street. Revzi was only seven when the film Donnie Brasco was released. I mention this because part of the previous movie (the infamous parking meter scene) was shot in front of this very building. In any case, he died at eighteen.

McGuinness Boulevard

And lastly, this bouquet commemorates the senseless, sad death of Maria Piatkiewicz. She was hit by a van while crossing McGuinness Boulevard last month.
