Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: A North 4 Street PSA

June 15, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11211, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 

I encountered this charming missive as I was on my daily constitutional today. I even made it a point to visit this very intersection because this mattress has taken up residence there for quite some time. Three (or was it four— I lose track) weeks ago it was nestled snugly in a garage door around the corner on Berry Street. Last week it had migrated around the corner to North 4 Street. And this week, as you can see, someone has seen fit to admonish everyone that this piece of street furniture comes with “benefits”.

What really struck me about this photo (which was taken by Steven R. Hazlett and hails from Washington Heights) is how the newspaper dispenser is pressed into service as a bench. This is a far preferable alternative use for these occupiers of public space/trash magnets than what I found on Berry Street today.

Quicklink: A Visit To Carino

I have yet to try out the Southside’s newest Mexican restaurant (and brainchild of the former staff of Bonita): Carino. I was reminded of this this morning by NYC Food Guy who brought a video of his recent visit to this establishment to my attention. While I can’t honestly say I am too excited about chorizo (I’m a vegetarian), I know a number of you undoubtedly will be. So without further ado here it is. Enjoy!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: What’s Up At North 15 & Berry Street?

I asked this very question here on New York Shitty a few days ago. Today I am pleased to announce that I have an answer thanks to Jay of Dog Habitat! He writes:

I took Abby out for a late night stroll to McCarren park and walked by that food cart/wagon on that triangle at Berry, Banker and N15. There was a gentleman there with a shovel digging along the sidewalk. He greeted me with a hearty “how do you do?” and I walked over to investigate. I was glad I had a big dog at my side because he was, after all, armed with a shovel and who knows what else. Turns out this guy was very friendly and told me he’s planting flowers! [cue REM’s Gardening at Night]. I didn’t catch the guys name, but he said he was fixing up the spot for his buddy who was opening a hot dog stand. He was working late because he’s a driver for a car service and was shoveling/planting in-between passenger pick-ups. I’ll keep an eye on the wagon and will let you know when they start servin’ up dogs and who knows what else.

And here are the fruits of his labor.

So there have you. Thanks Jay for getting to the bottom of this Greenpoint mystery!
