When encountered this despondent pup, I could not help but wonder why the sad face. I mean, Irene was more “talk” than action.  Then I turned around— and the answer became obvious:

Irene took out his favorite tree!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Police Activity On Clifford Place?

A lady we’ll call “L” writes:

Hello, I’m a Greenpointer and follow your blog. Since you are always in the know I’d thought I’d reach out to you. I think something bad happened on last night on our street. cops all over the street and one was sitting outside the bldg across the street. 11 Clifford. Do you know anything about this?

No, I do not know anything about this incident— but YIKES! On a (somewhat) related note, yesterday I was asked about an incident on Manhattan Avenue and India Street culminating in this:

Apparently these was a car chase pursuit between New York’s Finest and a “perp” Saturday night around 11:30 p.m. Many police cars (including one which jumped the curb, took out a stop sign and damaged the above call box) were noted. That’s all I know. If anyone knows what happened here or at 11 Clifford do share via comments or via email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Your identity will remain anonymous if you so desire. Thanks!

UPDATE, 3:40 p.m.: I have been told that the incident on Clifford Street came to pass between 2:00 and 5:30 a.m., and although drugs and blood were found, there was no body. No body = no murder, folks.

UPDATE, 9:20 p.m.: Now I am being told there is a body. A tipster writes:

So now I’m told via my next door neighbor who talked to the owner of the building on Clifford that there WAS a body. I guess the guy was beat up on his stoop around 9pm, in front of a lot of witnesses. He made it into his house, where the landlady heard a big crash around 1:30 or 2, and then called the cops to check on him. That’s when they found him dead. He was a guy in his early 30s who owned two dogs. No one has wanted to ID any of his attackers for fear of retaliation.

In closing, here’s an item that might be of interest to you dog lovers out there: Dog Habitat’s Black Friday Adoption Event!


Jay Lombard (of Dog Habitat, who sent me the above image) writes:

Hey lady! We wanted to invite you to visit our adoption event tomorrow from noon to 5 p.m. Eight rescue dogs available for adoption from puppies to adolescent age. Pure breeds and brooklyn mutts. Please help us find homes for these beautiful pups!

I was initially confused by Jay’s missive. There are no ladies at New York Shitty. But I do appreciate the sentiment and will certainly make it a point to swing by and say “hi” these lovely pups. You should too.

In closing this post goes out to Lisacat who did her best to assuage the suffering of an auto shop cat named Bondo. I am certain wherever he is (junkyard cat heaven?) he is grateful for your hard work. I know I am.

P.S.: While I am (ostensibly) on the subject of fur, I discovered something on Manhattan Avenue today that really bothered me.


The above photograph graces Forgotten-NY’s Greenpoint page. Regarding this wonderful example of old school signage Kevin Walsh writes:

When you’ve got a good sign, you don’t need to ever replace it. The old school phone number, probably EVergreen, is still there too.


That is, of course, unless you are Belvedere Partners Corporation. In which case you drill a “For Sale” sign on top of it. I can’t honestly say I am surprised that they saw fit to do this. These folks have been peppering north Brooklyn with balconized Neoclassical crap for years. One of their latest opuses graces Skillman Avenue. It’s a real beauty. It goes without saying you can look forward to seeing it on New York Shitty. Soon.

This winsome kitty resides on Clifford Place where, in more temperate weather, he (she?) can be found with a very real feline companion!
