Every so often I like to create assignments for myself. This, my latest one, came the way they usually do: via a flight of fancy. One day I wondered to myself if Greenpoint, the Garden Spot of the Universe— and patron par excellence to the aluminum siding industry— sported a rainbow assortment of siding products. What you have just seen, dear readers, is the result of one month’s worth of research. There is only one conclusion that can be drawn from the copious amount photographic evidence/data I have collected: yes!

Has Anyone Seen Moose?

Speaking as a pet owner my heart sinks when I find fliers like this (which is located at the intersection of Herbert Street and Graham Avenue in Greenpoint). The previous having been written who cannot help but love a cat named Moose! If you have seen this cute fella or know of his whereabouts please contact his “people” at the above telephone number. Thanks!

P.S.: Also MIA in the Garden Spot is a cat named Lester. Here’s the flier I found about him from the intersection of Norman Avenue and Newel Street.

In keeping with the spirit of Valetine’s Day here are a few shots taken from none other than the Garden Spot of the Universe. Enjoy!

This lovely assortment of roses come from the A.J. Farm Market at 1014 Manhattan Avenue.

As many of you know this is also Presidents Day weekend. So why not do what the owners of T & N Wine and Liquor did and combine motifs?

Nothing washes down a box of chocolate (or nine) like a tall frosty one!

Yeah, I know this isn’t from Greenpoint per se. But I like it and what’s more it makes a great finisher for this post. So there!
