Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Franklin Street


Not only is the commodification of the borough of Kings continuing, but as I learned yesterday apparently its contents require a curator. You learn something new everyday…

Urban Artifact: 173 Days & Counting





Not only is the teddy still there (albeit with what appears to be a tear cascading down his fuzzy mug), but he is presently sporting some arm bands in the manner of “repurposed” gaskets. Snazzy!

Microsoft Word - Gretta lost cat poster flyer.doc

Anyone who has the pleasure of knowing our local veterinarian, Brad Seaman, be it as a friend or a client can attest that he is one sweet, caring fellow. Thus when he contacted me that one his own furkids— actually one of his girlfriend— has gone MIA it was no question that I would gladly post an item soliciting her safe return. Here it is:

  1. His girlfriend, Jen, a fellow vet (!) just moved in with him at the Viridian (Yeah, I know— but that’s another matter!).
  2. He has just realized that her furkid, Gretta, who bears a strong resemblance to the above kitty save she is a bit older, is missing.
  3. To this end he would like us to help him secure her safe return.

Anyone who has seen a cat fitting this description on or near Green Street please give him a call at (718)406-2022 ASAP. As you can see, a reward is being offered. Thanks— and spread the word!

P.S.: I will be amending this post with a photo of Greta when he is able to send me one.

UPDATE, 7:25 p.m.: Gretta has been found. Hooray!

The Word On The Street, Part III: Special “When Worlds Collide” Edition

Manhattan Avenue at Eagle Street


I do not know where to even start here, so I’ll leave it at this; lest the “copy” and “graphics” were not a sufficient indication, the sheer quantity of these flyers I saw while walking around the neighborhood today make it quite clear “Tony” is pissed.

Franklin Street at Eagle Street


This would hardly be the first time I have heard of roosters calling our fair burgh home. What’s more, shortly after spotting this (regrettably incomplete) missive I actually heard the rooster in question. Ah, Greenpoint…

Urban Artifact, Part I: 160 Days & Counting!


The offerings may be dwindling, but I am pleased to report as of today, April 25th, the Greenpoint Avenue teddy bear is still in effect!


Here’s looking at you, kid…
