As spotted today around noon. Who doesn’t love him/her some rice and beans? I do— and obviously someone else does because these vittles were gone when I walked by later at 5:30 pm. Another Greenpoint mystery! For those of you who may be wondering, I have seen a great many foodstuff “stored” in this call box over the years. It is an ad hoc pantry/storage area of sorts. By far the best was a can, bereft of label, which had question makes drawn all over it with Sharpie marker. On the top someone saw fit to write:

The Mystery Can!

Ah, memories…
