WTF1

S and M Construction writes (in regards to this post):

In answer to your question: Trying to keep them in check was met with limited success at first but finally we seem to have mastered the art. Please feel free to stop by anytime, as we will be happy to provide you with a demonstration of our methodologies. Suffice it to say, don’t bother bringing your own-we will glady provide our own whips and chains. Finally, we are dissapointed that you failed to take note of the pirate flag flying above the building.

All the best,

Presenting The WTF Building

I suspect I speak for many in north Greenpoint when I say that I am happy this week’s film shoot on Manhattan Avenue is over. It was kind of novel at first but after a day or two of being redirected to side streets by lackeys bearing walkie talkies it became a more than a little annoying. However, I did reap something positive— or at the very least interesting— out of the experience. Like finding the following at 188 Freeman Street.

I have seen a lot of strange shit construction-wise in Greenpoint over the years but this one takes the cake. Follows is a shot taken after the folks at S & M Construction (I am not kidding— that is who is responsible for this) have called it a day.

I have to hand these folks credit for making this site “airtight”. Hell, it’s a jolly big blue fortress replete with concertina wire. But it does raise the question as whether their goal is to keep people out or to keep people in?

Very peculiar indeed.
