I spied the above bit of hilarity this afternoon while waiting for the bus. Curiosity piqued, I looked up this building on the Department of Buildings database. What I discovered was interesting.

Sure enough, complaints have been lodged regarding this property. As the lattermost item indicates, the Department of Building’s Emergency Response Team paid this edifice a visit January 4, 2013. No “construction activity” was noted. The fact there is a door (replete with a lock, no less) where one usually expects to find a window seems to be missed as well. Or maybe it wasn’t? North Brooklyn is funny that way!

Follows is the most relevant permit issued by the Department of Buildings to the owner of this property.

Perhaps the Emergency Response Team should pay another visit?

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: Greetings From The Bronx

As I have mentioned previously my brother in law is currently staying with us. Since he is only here for four days we have a jam-packed itinerary. Today the Mister took him to Lomzynianka Restaurant for some blue chip Polish vittles. They were provided a little post-meal entertainment in the manner of a crazy lady screaming at no one in particular on Manhattan Avenue. If the previous is not THE quintessential Greenpoint experience I honestly don’t know what is. But I digress.

Yesterday’s destination on our gustatory tour de force of the outer boroughs was Morris Park. After we gorged ourselves on ungodly amounts of Italian food at Patricia’s we went for a little walk. It was at the intersection of Lydig and Crueger Avenue that we stumbled upon this.

fucku

I cannot decipher the bottom half of this missive but I do not think it diminishes the author’s message in any way. The first five letters pretty much say it all.
