The New York Observer writes:

From an official Girls casting notice posted to Backstage.com, we now know what “hipster” typecasting looks like:

Seeking—Hipster Types: male and female, 18-30s, all ethnicities, all types, specifically seeking people with tattoos, piercings, colored hair, and unique looks. Young Adult (ages 18-29), Thirties (ages 30-39). Caucasian/White, African-American/Black, Latin/Hispanic/South American, Asian, Native American (!!! — Ed. Note), European, Middle Eastern, Indian/South Asian, Other.

Truth be told, I really hate going after low-hanging fruit like such as this— but “Europeans”?!? I just about shot Zywiec out of my nose reading that corker. Perhaps “Girls” will spot a few when they film in “Little Poland” tomorrow? That’s right, Greenpointers. Tomorrow. May 18th, 2012.

The areas impacted are:

  1. Manhattan Avenue between Java and Green Street and
  2. India Street between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street.

The tow trucks show up at 2:00 p.m. Why not leave a curricula vitae and a headshot on your dashboard, Garden Spotters?

Green Street Feral Dildo Watch: Still There!

While perhaps hardly surprising, I feel compelled to announce that as of the writing of this post, alas, the free vibrator and condoms offered at 145 Green Street have yet to find a loving home. Nonetheless this turn-of-events inspired a fit artistic inspiration in yours truly— and having a spare doll-sized boxing championship belt laying around I decided to act upon it!

I entitle this creation “Champ”! Now if you don’t mind, gentle readers, I am off to wash my hands…

P.S.: It is the author of this site’s utmost wish that whoever sees fit to eventually take these items will field test them on site before toting them home. Make it happen, Greenpoint magic!

Urban Fur: Stray Cat Strut

While today is most certainly a bit brisk, that did not deter some of North ‘Point’s feral felines from catching a little sunshine! Closing on a related note (and although I have posted this already) the foursome lounging at left are in need of someone to help with their care! Tori, their “person”, writes:

Needed one or two colony caretakers for a feral cat colony of seven cats for morning feedings near West Street. Saturday morning,  and one or two other mornings, to be fed at 830- 9 A.M. Caretaker provides food. All the cats are neutered/spayed and are delightful. Colony has several caretakers. Rewarding work. A brief training is available the first time; vbondart@hotmail.com

Please help spread the word!

Spotted On Green Street: Clean!

This hilarious— and yet mildly horrifying— offer can be found at 145 Green Street. Any takers out there?
