From The New York Shitty Inbox: Holy Sh*t!

Luke writes (in an email entitled “Crikey!”):

Household pet or is Garden Spot of the Universe at long last reverting back to its original primordial state? First is was a raccoon*, then it was a chicken on Craigslist and and now reptiles have entered the fray. Too bad Marlin Perkins is no longer with us— as it would appear our ‘nabe is a becoming a veritable Noah’s Ark of critterdom.

*about whom Luke writes:

also, the raccoon that was in the tree @ box st has moved on.  we saw him on tues (sleeping), and he was still there yesterday (stretching etc).  i hope he’s ok.

thanks for (offering) the raccoon to us.  go greenpoint wildlife!

Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Gearing Up For “The Bounty”

Happy B DayNYS

Tomorrow they will commence filming The Bounty, an “action/comedy” featuring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler right here in Greenpoint. Provided the weather holds. When I told one of the men charged with overseeing the last minute preparations that the weather is going to be iffy, he said:

We’ll work with it.

You gotta love an attitude like that. Here’s a slide show of how things were shaping up when I walked by today. Enjoy!

To close on a more local note Champion Coffee, arguably one of the best purveyors of java in north Greenpoint, will be closed until June 19th.

Coffee lovers needing a Monday (Tuesday and Wednesday) morning commute caffeine fix should plan accordingly. My recommendation: Cafecito Bogota. Not only are the co-proprietors of this business incredibly nice chaps, but the cholados are amazing!

Tonight Champion Coffee will be having an art opening from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. I have no word as to what the nature of the work will be but given how much I enjoyed their last show this will definitely be on my “to do” list! If you happen to be in the area why not give it a look-see?
