The Word On The Street: Security

Security Notice nys

Cat Security NYS

This fearsome feline stands watch over a building on Kingsland Avenue. More specifically he (she?) is guarding set and prop material for the television show Madam Secretary. It is reassuring to see Broadway Stages has stepped up security since  thieves made off with $17,800 of equipment just down the street back in October. Go get ’em tiger!

Props: A big New York Shitty shout out goes to Sheryl for bringing this item to my attention and the two very nice and quite human fellows on the premises for humoring my shutter-bugging. Thanks!

It’s cute how “family” sticks together. Please take a moment and point and click your way to Queens Crap for the scoop. Otherwise if you, fellow Greenpointers, are wondering why this is our problem. Well, the following might clarify matters a bit.

You can and should read this in its entirety here. In any case despite being caught operating an illegal waste trade facility handling construction material and six figures worth of tax liens  the Department of Buildings has seen fit to issue Mr. Argento’s curiously named contracting company, Broadway Stages, permits.

I am enjoying you follow the Argentos and their shady dealings. They drive me crazy because they get all of this government money and none of the rules apply to them. Have you noticed that Monitor St between Greenpoint ave and Norman ave is closed? The Argentos are building 7 sound stages on Kingsland Ave which the back is on Monitor. Since last year that street is closed and I cannot see any reason why except that it is being treated like a personal parking lot. Because it is closed the traffic on Greenpoint Avenue gets backed up especially at rush hour. I do not see any signs explaining why it should be closed either.
Have you noticed this?

I cannot honestly say I have. However, I opted to swing by today and see what’s up. Follows is a slideshow of my findings. Enjoy!

In closing, I decided to swing by Luna Lighting (which, as we have learned, was busted by the Business Integrity Commission for operating an illegal trade waste business). The following photo pretty much says it all.

Streets, sidewalks, who needs them when jobs are being created? Or so it is said by those who have been beneficiaries of the Argento’s largesse. Let this be a reminder folks that the “rules” apply to some folks more than others…

From The New York Shitty Inbox: 1st Annual Greenpoint Film Festival

This weekend I was approached by a chap named Matt. He wished to use a photograph of mine as the basis for an advertisement slated to grace the next issue of Williamsburg Greenpoint News + Arts. As you can see from the above image, I happily obliged him. In any case, this turn of events is as good a reason as any to announce we Greenpointers are in for something pretty nifty this upcoming October…
